Hello Again

Hello Again It's been far too long since we've had any updates, far too long. I can't say why we abandoned you but let's say that life happened. My comrades and I burned out on photography while we all went through some major changes. I can't get into their lives but...

Letting Go

At some point this stopped being fun. Not just this blog, but the entire photographic process. Before I go any further, think about that first sentence for a minute. A hobby that became turned into passion isn't fun anymore. It had gotten tedious and trying. Like any...

Take, Make, Claim

Ever wonder how the phrase "take a photo" became the preferred way to describe what we do with the camera?  I have.  Often.  And I've searched for the answer but come up empty.  (If you know, please do enlighten me.)  It strikes me as odd to unabashedly proclaim that...
