I feel obligated to take advantage of the fact that I have not been able to sleep of late and realized I should give an update of sorts on the website.
I have been relatively quiet in my blog and for that I apologize to anyone who actually follows my inconsistent babble. The real reason I had started the blog portion of this website was to share the traumatic experience that has changed my life and in the process come to own the emotions and changes I am going through.
Unfortunately, I was asked to remove anything related to that day and any subsequent material or personal opinion on the matter until further notice. Although this took the wind out of my sails, I will re-post the removed entries once everything has settled down and I am no longer legally restricted.
Just thought I owed everyone an explanation.
We are twenty days into the current Photography 101 challenge and I must say I was amazed to have 25 people join me in my amateur digital exploration. The pictures submitted thus far have been as varied and diverse as the ages, regions and lifestyles of the photographers who took them. I am constantly amazed by how others see the world and wish more people would take chances to open their eyes and minds to explore themselves, as well as the world around them.
For those of you who haven’t submitted photos yet…do not be pressured or discouraged. The idea is to have fun. If you feel pressured into taking a picture, relax, and take a deep breath. If the opportunity presents itself, live in that moment and enjoy the process. There is no penalty for failing to submit a picture, nor is there a prize for submitting all of the subjects.
Eleven days left.
At the end of this challenge I hope to get the forum page up and running so we may discuss the pictures submitted to the site. I hope to have a few different topic boards where we can share ideas, comments and even work on future Photography 101 subjects.
Four in the morning kinda sneaks up on you when you cannot sleep well. I will have to read this again before I post it to make sure I did not cross the legal boundaries or curse like a sailor.
