Shutter Bug Award
Last November I started blogging seriously. I had tried it once before, but only had an entry every couple weeks. This time I decided to see if I could stick with it. I did it because, first, I like to write. It is relaxing and makes me happy. Second, I like to take photographs. I like to draw and paint, but am not all that great. I know I could be much better, but I am not willing to dedicate the amount of time in one sitting it takes to paint. When I start painting in the morning, I don't want to stop. When I blog, two hours is about the most I will put in. A blog has an ending. My photography used with writing lets me compose and create a picture without having to get out the paints and paper along with a plastic cloth to protect my table. I don't consider my photos complete until I have written about them, or actually written with them.
