“A Diary of Favorite Shots” — Not much can be said about November. This month I began interviewing locals for the Museum’s newspaper articles, and I branched out by taking day trips out of town.. which is where many of these “November” snapshots originated. Until this point, I haven’t had enough driving experience to do this, so it was a big step for me to take these mini-road trips around the South.
Other projects this month were put on hold when I picked up seasonal work, and following that, everything slowed down for the impending holiday season. These last two months of the year are, almost always, the months when I feel the most anxious to work. It becomes a struggle to shoot through the dreary weather, and I have to create projects that won’t rely as much on other people’s availability during the holidays. Projects don’t always line up at this time, and I have to remember it’s sometimes better to huddle down and do whatever is readily available to do.
Going into December, I’m expecting my plans to take a slight detour, but there is plenty to look forward to, and several people I’m excited to interview.
