Coming out of the dark abyss that has swallowed me...

It's been a long time since I have been to this site.  Ok, way more than a long time actually.  If it hadn't been for a recent friend request, I probably wouldn't be here still.  Life has gotten in the way of a lot of stuff.  I found out in May 2014 that I have cancer and am currently undergoing chemo therapy right now.  We've had to sell a lot of our gear since then, however, I do still have my camera and am looking into upgrading to the T5i at some point once things settle down.

Models don't come as easy as they did when we lived in Vegas, sadly.  And despite showing what quality work I try to put out, apparently everyone here is a "photographer" where I live and doesn't want to spend money.  *shrugs*  I'm not hurt emotionally by it.  I've offered my digital post op skills to them, but again, if they own a camera, then they inherently know how to shop their own photos too.  *double shrug*.  So I've just moved past even advertising it.  I just allow people to see my photos and if they are interested, they can come to me.  At least for now until I get the energy to put my feet to the pavement on it again.

I've really got to dust the bunnies off of my camera and get to clicking again... I just haven't found my muse yet.  Really hoping to get inspired soon..

I understand your situation completely. I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma (bone marrow cancer) 3 days before Christmas 2012, after chemo and several trips to the hospital, it is now in complete remission,

I have been lucky in  been able to keep on to my photography gear, thanks to the Leukemia Society, However, I have great difficulty and pain in walking, the disease has collapsed four of my lower vertebrae.

Keep the faith and God will provide.

Thanks Beverly.  I'm going through and organizing my photos that have collected on my computers desktop (I used to be super good about putting them in their proper folders, but slacked off for the past 2 years or so).  Once I get it all caught up, which for me, really won't take that long, I'm sure I'll be posting several new photos on here.  =)
