How often places of feeling lead us to places of thought
Hello again Flickr. A month later and it is good to be home. Three weeks of world travel sounds great on paper and in reality it is great, but it is also exhausting. It is safe to say that my travel bug is scratched for at least a few months. That is a good thing as I have more than 70 rolls of exposed film between the trips to Maui and France to work through. It is going to take several months to plow my way through all that work. But that is a task I am looking forward to. I am looking forward to the delayed gratification that makes film so thoroughly enjoyable to use. I am looking forward to sharing those images with family and friends for the first time and I am looking forward to curating, writing and sharing it all with you through Flickr.
I am in my element when I am out in the world (exotic or not) with a camera in hand. And while this past month of whipping around the globe has left me worn out - almost in need of a vacation from my vacation - it has also been an incredibly fulfilling month. Give me a windswept Hawaiian beach with a wooden pinhole camera and a single roll of film and I am a satisfied individual... on several different levels.
I have given more than a little thought too on my on-going use of Flickr and on-line presentation in general. But those are thoughts I will share with you on a subsequent post. I am not completely out of vacation mode just yet and mentally it is still difficult to spend too much time in front of the computer. I'm sure you understand. But I had to get a new image up at some point and figured this was as good a place to begin again as any.
Secret Beach on Maui by the way. Not a terribly well kept secret mind you, but a beautiful one to be sure.
