For the first half of the year I've been busy trying out new pen designs and exploring bowl turning more and more. But the biggest change has been the rediscovery of an former hobby in new form.
20-plus years ago, photography was a big hobby of mine to the point I had two 35mm cameras and my own darkroom set up for developing both film and prints. This year I added a Digital SLR to my toolchest so I can capture better quality photos than my 10-year-old point and shoot was capable of. I've revisited that former hobby with the intention of creating better photographic depictions of my work, but don't be surprised if few photos outside of my wood working interests don't turn up from time to time. I may have to start a second blog for the photography! But one will do me for now since my time is spent mostly turning rather than typing.
I'll be posting a few shots of my setup for photographing my work in the near future, but for now I've added a section above that links to my Flickr photostream to show off what I've been uploading and sharing with the world. Enjoy!
