I didn't give up on blogging, my computer just broke down. The trusty old laptop had been through a lot these past few years and finally choked out the near the beginning of summer. Since we had sunk all our savings into our new house and the setting up of said new house, I had to wait a while to allocate funds for replacement. Now I'm officially back up and running. Here's a few cool photos from this summer just so my come back post isn't totally boring.
This is Babe Jr with a sparkler. I shot this using a long shutter speed and a tripod in case your wondering how I did it. It was a lot of fun taking these but you have to keep really tight patterns to make out the shape. Only a few of them I took are obvious, its best to keep with something simple.
And here's a nice shot of Mr. Backwoods in his natural habitat. This was taken the same day as my new header pic. I'd begged him for a few weeks to get me back up to the top of the mountain in the evening so I could get some sunset pics.
And speaking of the new header, you may have noticed my little remodel. I decided it would be more logical to have my blog title actually match the web address. My posts have gravitated more towards projects I've done (which are often things I've made because I can't find them in stores in our super small town) or anecdotes about living in the backwoods, moving away from philosophical ramblings. So the new title just made more sense all together.
I documented a few of my projects over the summer and still have tons of them in the works, so more crafty stuff will be coming soon. And if you're reading this, thanks for not giving up on me.
