I’m still here, just going through a creative rut and also an overload of social networking.
The other day, I was ready to shut it all down, except for my blogs here. I was about to deactivate my personal facebook page, but then I’d lose my photography page there, so I didn’t. Instead, I’m avoiding it for a while. I was also about to quit Tadaa, an app like instagram, but a few nice people talked me out of it because I’m one of their favorites, and they were going to miss my pictures.
I feel like I need to disconnect from everything for a bit and get a little R&R, but I almost feel guilty for not blogging. For a few years, I’ve tried to get an audience for my photos. When nobody was paying attention, it was easy to walk away for a month or two and not give it a second thought. Now that people actually appreciate what I do, and might actually miss me, its harder to take a break.
I guess what I’m saying is its not you, its me. Just kidding.
I’m still here, but feeling uninspired at the moment. I tried exploring Santa Barbara and Ojai to jump start the creative juices, but I struggled to find beauty in what I was seeing.The mission was cool, but crawling with tourists who seemed determined to keep me from getting my shot.
What do you do when you’re uninspired?
