So here’s the thing.
I’m slightly bored with this blog right now.
And life has been getting in the way, or rather has been more interesting/intense/busy/overwhelming/stressful.
So if you don’t see a post from me for a while, forgive me, I’m trying to figure it out over here.
Blogging has become a chore rather than something I enjoy, and I’m trying to figure out why I would rather read, binge watch House of Cards and take photos rather than blog.
Maybe I need a break?
Maybe I need a redesign?
Funny since I applied for a Blogership back in February and was actually picked by the folks over at Blogher to volunteer in exchange for my ticket price. The irony.
I have a few obligations that I will keep up with ( my photography blog circles) but other than that, I think I’m going to take the month of March off. Yes, numbers will suffer, but I’m past the point of caring about numbers anyway. If I’m going to blog, I’m going to blog. The end.
I’ll still be on twitter and instagram. I can’t promise Facebook, but maybe.
I’ll still pop in on your blogs and Facebook pages and twitter, but that’s about all I can manage right now.
See you soon.

We’ve been down and out over here.
Last week, I was the only one in this house who was well, CDub and Pookah were down for the count. Pookah with a nasty stomach virus and Cdub, bless his male heart, was passing a kidney stone.
It took 6 days.
Ok, So by Saturday, I was mentally and physically done in and of course, I caught whatever buy Pookah had and have been under the weather for 4 days.
I see the light today! LOL
Anyway, I’m not totally better and I will say that the last time I picked up my Canon I believe was sometime last week. But I managed to capture a photo of Pookah last week when he wasn’t feeling to well. I believe that that is the spirit of a 365 or a Project 52: to capture those moments in life that happen. No matter if they are good or bad, to remind us of how we lived.
Sick or not.
Up next in our circle is Martine! Don’t forget to click on through to see the wonderful photos these ladies have shared!

This week’s theme for our Project 52 blog circle is Low light.
He was sitting still, playing with the iPad and I thought, why not? It’s a clichéd photo by now, but I still love the idea and I’ve never gotten one of these to look how I really wanted to until now. I love my 6D and the high ISO!
I turned off all the lights, spot metered and cranked up that ISO to 12800.

I’m obsessed with Black and White photography. It’s so timeless, so beautiful so…classic.
If I had my way, I would covert every photo to black and white and move on, but that’s not quite right.
A good black and white needs good light and contrast.
We want to see your examples of black and white photography all over social media this week!
