Where has the Winter Gone?

Of course I mean that in a time sense as spring is nearly upon us, although I see in many areas it still feels like winter. Not here though, where it's sunny and 70° again. Time to take the sprinklers off hibernate mode I guess!

On one hand I can't believe it's been so long since I posted to this blog, while on the other I know I haven't been very productive in terms of photography lately. I did some digital self-portrait work for yet another side project (everything is a side project with me) and this past week actually managed to take a leisurely walk and do some shooting with my trusty and sadly neglected XA2.

But apart from that it's been all about the sports. And since I'm now a participant, not just an enthusiastic observer, I don't get to kick back and take the action photos I used to. My wife and I are just finishing up co-coaching 1st grade basketball, I'm just beginning coaching T-ball, and still assistant teaching Taekwondo all along. In fact Casey and I just earned the rank of 2nd Degree Black Belt this past week. WoOt!

And yet, like I said, this has as little to do with photography as the songs I've been writing, so I've not posted. But as the weather gets better and the light becomes more favorable for photography I can feel my itchy trigger finger wiggling. I'll be back in the saddle before long.
