I was going through some of my photos from last summer and found this one. As I looked at it I realized that it represents so much in my life. Most of the time I feel quite disconnected. Not only to other people but also to myself, my past particularly. I’m always looking to “reconnect” with things in my past. Past adventures, interests, friends, and so forth. My move to SLC was just such. Hoping to reconnect with some old friends, and places that aren’t there anymore. I did find my best friend and his partner and they informed me that most of the friends we had back in the crazy days of the 80’s have died of HIV. That I kind of figured but hearing it come from them make it so real.

I have been so engrossed in self-pity and other depressive processes lately I have to pull myself out. One thing that has come of it is I have found that my passion for photography is my only escape. I have in all my lonely hours figured out more of the whys to my love of the craft. It is my way of staring down reality in the face and climbing the obtrusive walls in my life. So now I move forward. Plans fail and I have to live with that but giving up is not an option anymore. Better things ARE in store! Weather permitting of course!
Just a plug for my portfolio. It’s up and running and I hope to share it with you. Let me know
what you think.
Well finally we have a trip to the “big city”, SLC, UT, planned. We were going to meet up with another photographer from there and do a street shoot. But she can’t make it and wants to reschedule so we’re going it alone. We have several models lined up and Gwen and Lorraine are chaperones. We’ll do some shoots downtown and then hit some of the outskirts that are kinda grungy. Then we’re going to a big party and I get to shoot it as well. Our models can just be part of the crowd. Should be a lot of fun. Wish us luck.
Been a while since I posted anything. I’ve been going through some depression but I think I’m pulling out of it now. Yesterday was the worst. Someone I cared about decided to totally brush me aside. I was hurt pretty bad but it just showed my that I can’t rely on others to make me happy.
Some good news. My photography is taking off some. I did a New Year’s Eve Gay Gala this week and I got a new lens for zooms and macro. Plus it looks like I’ll be collaborating with a model via online. How will we do that? Better stay tuned hadn’t ya!
Here’s a couple of photos from the Gala. This older gentleman was just passing through and after the party was over sat down at the piano and started playing. I walked over and started a conversation. The guy was amazing. He had so much expression in his face and I could tell he’d been around the block a few times. So naturally I had to get some shots of him.
