Entwining the “Real” Me With the Artistic One…

Solange, the chicken I left behind… :(

Solange, the chicken I left behind… 😦

I am going through a phase, I think…

One that wants to merge the writer in me with the photographer in me.

Once upon a time, I was a small business owner (who failed, thank you, economy) that built a studio from the ground up. Literally. I’d started taking portraits in my dining room after moving all the furniture into the living room and shot with my ass plastered to the oven door.

We did fairly well, but then? Then the economy tanked, and I bailed on the blog that held the best of the best of our pictures, including the build of the studio that is now my personal weight room.

On that blog, I was quiet, modest, and publicly acceptable. In here? More unfiltered.

But since I closed the doors to the business last year, because it cost more to keep it open than I was making…I also abandoned the blog that went with it. Probably not my brightest move, but one I thought that I’d revisit, when I found the time to play with it.

Now it’s 2014 and I find that I actually have time to explore it further…So for any of you that are curious as to how I got to where I am (or am not, if you are a glass-half-empty kind of person) here is the blog that started it all.

Thank you for indulging me, as I’m going to be posting the last two years of photography over there. 🙂

Until Next Time…

  1. I know the feeling. I used to do road racing photography and pretty much just broke even after expenses, but I loved it. Then we moved to Colorado so there weren’t any tracks nearby and I started doing landscapes and animals…..I still do it, but it’s more for me and to share with others on my website, instead of trying to make any money. 🙂

    This will have to be another day for me to check out this other side of you! I am sure you were a fantastic artistic photographer! I just know it! I have to walk home, get cleaned up and eat my dinner. I blog after working all day at a warehouse, at the library! Smiles, Robn

    Love the chicken, Julie! I can’t find the link to your old blog, though. Is this a sobriety test that you’re giving me?
