Under Stairs

Exterior meal stairs, window, shadows, curtain.

Where the hell have I been?

Yeah, I’m wondering that too. Somehow the vim and zip has gone right out of my blogging habit.

I had a great photo outing to Marshall, NC last weekend. The weather was glorious, and I came back with all sorts of pictures of falling-apart-things, many of which I actually quite like. But when I thought of posting them here suddenly I was all, well, “meh.”

I’m not sure why.

I feel that I’ve gone stale and need to do something to shake things up. It’s not for lack of images to post, or even things to write about, really. I think I’ve lost motivation because I perceive a lack of purpose and feedback.

I need to ponder on it. There may be some kind of reboot. Thanks for hanging in while I figure it out.

    Oh, I hope I didn’t have anything to do with this! After a month off, I’m looking forward to starting up again next week. It’s good to take a break, though. I think we all worry about being stale or repetitive, even when our posts aren’t perceived that way. So…happy pondering, I’ll be here when you come back!

    Instead of blogging, I have been using mine like a scrapbook. If I go to a casino, I take a photo. If I go to a ballgame, I take a photo. If I take an outing, for example a trip to New Orleans, I take a photo.

    Glad you’re back. I’ve been needing some beauty. Love the interplay of lines and shadows.

    Have you tried Instagram? I kind of love it.

    For what it is worth, I always enjoyed Something Beautiful at the end of each day…. xoxo

    I find the blogging landscape so changed — I post stuff & immediately link it on Facebook, and the conversation, if any, happens over there. So yes, the blog ends up being more a sort of archive. Deeply mixed feelings about Facebook, but… I need my reader fix.

    Captivating. I miss listening to you put sentences together… :-)
