Naming this blog “Meandering Passage” was no accident but more a prediction of the changes it has experienced — whether you take the meaning of passage as a voyage or as a short written extract it’s still descriptive of this blogs “life.” It’s had a number of starts and stops beginning as a technical blog with a strong Apple Mac computer influence shifting to a personal Photoblog, still with a few technical articles tossed in for seasoning. I can’t honestly say where it will be in a year except that it will no doubt be different then it is now.
You’ll also find I have a page on this site, under about, dedicated to my dog “Foster.” Foster suffered from Canine Idopathic Epilepsy – he had seizures that over a period of several years became consistently worst. I used this page to log and follow his struggles, both for my own use and to share with others travelling similar paths with their own dogs. Foster is no longer with us. His seizures became uncontrollable in May of 2012.
I was first inspired by photography during my early 20’s while serving in the military in Italy. During a lenghty hiatus when family and career were a piority, photography was never far from mind or heart. In 2006 photography again came to the forefront revealing new passions, interesting challenges and creative learning opportunities.
There’s a philosophy that “The camera looks both ways — in picturing the subject, we are also picturing a part of ourselves.”
I certainly believe this of my own journey and work. Therefore with each photo I strive for improvment, discovery and understanding. I love the technical side of digital photography while honoring the artistic endeavors. Photography and life are about balance.
