Well blog posts here only seem to happen every couple of months, if that. While I regularly post on Facebook how things are progressing with the previous weekend's images, I don't always get to my web site to write a blog. Time is always so much of an issue, but that, I think, is an issue for many of us.
Things are certainly picking up and I don't seem to get those stares anymore from people who are wondering who the hell is this guy and why is he photographing our dogs. For that I'd like to say thank you to you all, it makes me just a little more comfortable to do it too. A good indication that things are on the up and up is that I have a couple more bookings for shows this year and already a few for 2016 and as many of you may know I will be providing Dog News Australia with a page of images covering over shows in the South-east corner of Qld. I've already told Elise that this may mean we're among the last to leave at quite a few shows from now on so that I can make sure that I get reasonable coverage.
This however makes me even more aware of trying to keep some sort of balance. I love showing our dogs and I love photographing. Many of you enjoy my recent bird images and nature/wildlife photography is still something I wish to pursue as I find the peace and solitude of walking through the bush hunting little animals, rejuvenating. It just recharges my batteries and makes me feel better about life so I still need to find the one day or one weekend a month to go and do those activities. Then there's all the blokey stuff around the house like mowing lawns, tending to the vegie garden, ripping the chainsaw out and cutting things down.... that too needs to get done although here it tends to take a back seat.
Anyway I could just rant here for ages but what is really most important is that the Gympie and District Kennel Club show's photos from the 27th and 28th June are all uploaded to the website, including the couple of client galleries I had to do. Now I've still got some edits to catch up on for people so I better get back into it.
See some of you on the weekend.
