    Back from self imposed hiatus

    Back from self imposed hiatus
    Last year I needed to take a break. I had so much to do in my life I just needed to put photography on the back burner. Besides I just was not feeling creative. To make a long story short ( if you are not interested stop reading here) the last year both my wife and I retired, downsized and got rid of 20+ years of junk, built a new home, moved, dealt with major health issues with my wife,etc,etc,etc.

    Well we are moved in and settled in our "age in place" ranch home and ready to get on with life. To celebrate my return to photography today I ordered a D5200 with the 18-55 and 70-300 kit lenses. Should be delivered by this time next week. Anyway I did shoot some stuff last year and maybe I will post some of it over the next couple of weeks.

    Looking forward to reconnecting with old friends and meeting some new ones.

    Here is a shot of the new dwelling.....
