Holy moly, has it really been since June that I last wrote a journal? Yikes. I'm sorry for the neglect the past couple months. A couple different things have kind of combined and conspired against me being really active online, but I'm hoping that I'll be able to change things up in the near distant future, maybe at least get some uploads going again.

The big thing right now is that I'm keeping pretty busy with a new job teaching Biology at a community college out here in California. The semester is in full swing, and given that this is my first semester of teaching, I've really been flying by the seat of my pants from day to day trying to keep on top of things.

Second, I think the incident with the camera in San Diego (see my last journal if you need a refresher) kinda burned me out on everything photography. Hard to say why, beyond the fact that it was a mightmare and probably took a year off my life, but there you have it. Waiting for that flame to kick back on, hopefully sooner rather than later.

Regardless, I'm still sitting on a bunch of photos, and I've still got a bunch of photos left to edit, so some day, I have to assume I'll get some of them uploaded. :) Thanks for sticking with me everyone! Have a great rest of the week!

I could fave your entire gallery. Your work is amazing - thanks for sharing! :) Do you still allow your photos to be used for reference? They're so beautiful I might just have to paint them.

Sorry for the late response, but thank you! I'm glad you like my photos so much. :) You're absolutely welcome to use them as references. All I ask is that you give credit for the reference if you post your work online, and that you send me a link so that I can come see. Thanks for taking the time to ask, and thanks for visiting my gallery! :)

Late reply on my part, but thank you! It was a good day overall. I spent about half of it at school teaching about the colon, so how bad could it be? :)
