This afternoon and evening I ran across a few things that struck varying chords inside of my conscience and being. The chords were plucked strongly enough that I thought I should take a few minutes and write them down for my future benefit and possibly yours as well. To begin with, I was watching the Gary… Read More
This evening I was working on a few images that will be used for several marketing campaigns around my Dad’s farm in the next few weeks. I couldn’t help but notice a couple of images that I took while we were at the beach a few weeks ago… so I worked on one of them…. Read More
Do you remember the feeling when you spent your first night away from your parents’ home? When I was a bit younger I remember staying at a friend’s house overnight. Everything was fine until bedtime. There were several reasons it was difficult to go to sleep, but mostly it was because I was scared. Petrified… Read More
It’s been a little longer than it is supposed to be between blog posts. I’ve been trying really hard to keep my schedule of Tuesday and Thursday posts here on my personal blog. The first part of this week I was in Virginia Beach with my brother for a strawberry conference. Ever since I’ve been trying to catch up on a bunch of different things.
Meeting Tony Cece
While I was in VA Beach, I was honored to spend a couple of hours visiting with a photographer friend of mine, Tony Cece! I’ve always been impressed with Tony and his work, it was really great to meet him in person.
If you don’t know who Tony is, here are a few links to give you an idea of the great photography work that he is doing for Operation Blessing.
Definitely check out his work, he does a really great job of telling peoples stories using both photography and video.
When Life Goes Full Time
Something interesting happens when you basically leave everything you should be doing for a half a week and then come back to try to catch everything back up to speed.
I had a hard time deciding what to write about today. I started several times, on several subjects before this came.
I’ve decided to discuss exactly “what I do.” Partially for your benefit, but mostly for my own.
It has become harder to know what to tell people when they ask silly questions. Mostly these questions come in a form like this, “What kind of work do you do Eldon?”
Hopefully I can clarify this for you all – and for me too.
I Am A Blogger
Let’s begin with what you are reading right now. I blog.
I’ve been blogging off and on since 2006 or 2007. The first years were really bad. The content I was releasing wasn’t very good. The platforms I used [Blogger and Xanga] were fairly simplistic as well. I did learn a number of things from those early years.
Nike has been working on the Just Do It campaign for quite a while. The premise is pretty simple… when you need [or want] to do something – Just Do It. Apparently wearing a pair of Nike shoes helps.
I was thinking about the projects I’m involved with right now.
I noticed an interesting bit of truth emerging.
Often times we keep talking about how someday we are going to do such and such a thing.
But here is the deal: someday doesn’t exist.
What is Keeping You from Starting?
I recently commented on a blog post wishing someone a great 2014. His response included a question, “are you doing anything new or interesting in 2014?” In my reply I mentioned that I was thinking about starting a blog to help creatives [photographers, designers, etc] get their work online using WordPress.
He replied back and said… “well it can’t hurt to try.”
I had an epiphany of sorts.
My question to me, “why not start and see what happens?”
