‘Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life’

It certainly feels that way sometimes, and the latter half of 2013 was more bitter than sweet for many I knew; family, friends, colleagues and myself.

During the latter half of the year I’ve hardly picked up the camera at all. It all started with self-destruction of the Arena group of which I was a member. Since then circumstances and disillusionment have blunted my opportunities and enthusiasm to work on and enjoy my picture making, which has meant no new blog posts since October.

Anyway, 2014 is ahead of us now and the New Year is always a good opportunity to look ahead positively. Happy New Year!
