Let's see, where were we......?

I know.  It's been a while since I've sat down and really banged out a blog post on here.  I can see from my traffic monitoring that people are still visiting this page, so I figured I should do an update! (But to stay up to date, please follow me on Facebook!)

It's been an interesting 20 months now, hasn't it?  This pandemic rages forward and while at the beginning of summer there was a glimmer of hope, that was quickly dashed away and we're heading down another dark path.  

I'm over it.

But through it all, I've tried to keep busy with my work.  The demands of the day job and knee surgery in the spring had taken a bit of wind out of my sails this year but I am trying to press forward.  Back in the spring while I was out on leave, I created a collection of images created during the shutdown.  At that time I thought there was going to be a light at the end of the tunnel so I was starting to feel a bit more creative. 

And then shortly after that and I was back on my feet, I was approached about doing a special shoot for the local economic development group.  In New Philadelphia they are in the process of tearing down the old Howden Buffalo plant that had stood there for years.  They wanted someone to come in and capture the structures in it's last days.  It was an amazing shoot that took most of a Saturday to do it justice.  I created a site for those images (click here) and also a short video

Aside from those two things, it's been pretty standard with my work.  I keep trying to do more film photography, sometimes picking that over digital, but still enjoy both.  

So, that really catches you up on the hijinks and shenanigans with me and my photography.  

Please keep checking back here.  I'll try and blog more, but keep watching my Facebook for the most up to date stuffs.  Thanks for stopping by!
