Hobby on Hold

Waiter!?!Well, if you see my little bunny friend here, you know something’s up.

As hard for it is for me to say this out loud, but it has come to the point where this amazing hobby of mine has to go on the backburner for awhile. ๐Ÿ™

There are numerous factors playing into this very difficult decision โ€“ some positive, others negative โ€“ but Iโ€™m choosing not to dig into those right now. At the end of the day, my current workload and other demands on my time have left me very little opportunity to shoot new images. And even when I do get to break open the camera bag, Iโ€™m left with even less time to work with them in post and share them with everyone here.

Missing Maui

The other big impact this has on my overall happiness is that Iโ€™ll have to pass on the Maui Photo Festival this year โ€“ which is very unfortunate since Iโ€™ve been looking forward to returning ever since we got on the plane to go home after the โ€˜09 event.

I wish everyone involved with the MPF this year and those either returning or attending for the first time this year all the best โ€“ I really want to be there with you, and look forward to seeing the great shots and hearing about the wonderful experiences youโ€™ll be having once it has come and passed.

What Now?

I donโ€™t want to say this is the end of everything, so if you are so inclined, please bear with me as I work out my priorities elsewhere.  While I wonโ€™t be posting new images very often for the foreseeable future, I will try to add new content from time to time.  Whether itโ€™s links to other photographers on Facebook or interesting articles or topics I come across, Iโ€™m hoping to keep this little site going so that when the time comes that Iโ€™m able to recommit myself, I can get going again rather quickly.

Many Thanks

I would like to extend a collective Thank You to everyone Iโ€™ve interacted with online or in real life as it relates to photography.  The last year and a half of really taking this hobby seriously has brought me so much joy, and networking and meeting other photographers has been a major part of that.

In a way, that interaction with my photography peers may be something that Iโ€™ll miss the most.  That, and the trips to Maui. ๐Ÿ˜›

Happy shooting everyone, and keep those great images coming.  I look forward to rejoining you all someday.

– Kris

    Kris – I hope the issues that are keeping you away from your hobby will be resolved very soon.

    Andy and I are thinking of going to the Maui Photography Festival….one of the big reasons for going was hoping to meet you and Cindy. So, dang! Any chance you might change your mind?
