It’s been a long week around my house. Nola started first grade last Monday, and since I’m attempting homeschooling this year it’s been a battle of wills as she wants to go back to public school. The household acquired a traffic ticket. I checked my bank account to find unauthorized transactions in progress. The end of the week graced me with some GI issues that left me with lasting issues through even part of today. So a blog post has been in the very very back of my mind most of the last week.
In my downtime I’ve been looking at two different photo hosting type pages. SmugMug and Zenfolio. I’m pretty sure that my “about me” states that I have a love of photography. What I did not mention is that I’m in the process of starting up doing photography on more than just a hobby level.
White Wave Photography is the start of what I hope will be enough of a source of income that I can stay with the kids, but still get to do something I have loved for years. I like other arts and crafts, but have found that I enjoy doing them for fun at my own leisure. I will continue to do things like dye yarn, but just for friends, family, and myself. I have yet to find myself bored behind a camera because the focus through the lens is always changing.
My photography site will not be just portraits and candid shots. I love sunsets, storms, structures, lakes, rivers, the ocean, mountains, wildlife, flowers, fires .. anything and everything that can be photographed. I’m forever saying “I wish I had my camera with me” when I see something that I think would be a good picture. David fully expects me to take my camera with me just about everywhere I go, and he knows me well because I do take it with my just about everywhere (obviously not grocery shopping because that’s just boring).
This last week I’ve also been getting started with freezer meals, which I will talk about more in my next post I’m sure. 🙂
