Working in a Building
It has been a busy winter and spring! It is very good to be busy again after the huge slump of the recent (ongoing) world economic meltdown that has had an amazing impact on a close and personal level. I am just in awe (and mad!) to feel the effects of fat-cat greed trickling down and making withdrawals directly from my wallet.
Lately, I am feeling a tiny bit better. I’ve had three projects going at once, and, even though I am now working harder, for longer hours and for less money that I used to make, I am, at least, bringing in some dough. I suppose this is the reality of the new world dis-order, though the fat-cats just seem to be getting fatter all the time!
But there are good things: I feel good that I (with the help and support of my lovely, lively wife) have finished one of my three current projects and am about to finish the second one (pictured here). I feel good to be actually selling my photography for the first time ever – the panorama pictured above is one of my photos. I feel good to be an old dog who is learning new tricks – that panorama is the largest print I’ve ever made (16 feet long x 3 feet tall) and required a leap of faith and a belief that it could be done. …and I feel lucky that I’ve been able to do many things like this – things I didn’t know how to do when I started out, but was able to imagine and then sweat into existence.
