Why take all these damn photos if you’re never going to share them?

Waves at the Gulf Shore

That’s the question of the day today. After going through my photos yesterday, for my September love letter, I was struck by all of this beauty that I notice and try to capture, but I rarely revisit them, and don’t really share them.

I do not want to spend my time or energy on the addictive, toxic and ad-riddled social media sites.

I’m not chasing views, hits, likes etc.

I want a space to show/share what I see.

So, why not do that here? It certainly can’t hurt to try. If it doesn’t work or look good or motivate me to show up more often, well I won’t be worse off than I am now.

I even harbour a secret hope that it will encourage me to show up more often, in even more ways.

I’ve been private and quiet for what feels like a long time. Maybe I’m feeling ready to show up again. In my own space and on my own terms. I don’t really know what that’s going to look like, but there’s only one way to find out.
