JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 10.06.18

JSP Visual Week In Review_0100618

This was one of those super busy weeks for me. Not really in a “hey, I’m being so creative this is great!” week either.

I sat in front of my computer to much this week, either digging out of work email, doing my day job work or editing photos from last weekend’s Global Citizen Festival. (of course, if you’re following me on IG, you’d have seen some of the work.)

And regular life stuff was busy this week, too.

Every day just seemed crammed. All day, I’d think I want to write the GCF post, and here it is a week later and it’s still not up.

Every night, after putting the kids and my wife to bed (she’s picked up some early morning personal training clients, so she hits the sack early) I’d have a few hours to myself.

Many times this week, I though, “Oh, I’ll throw that post up” but then the couple of hours got whittled down by going back to edit still more photos of the event for my day job. Or edit other photos I shot because something made me think about it.

Then my eyelids would drop, but I’ll still want to read a little of the books I have going and I’d close the laptop and open the hard back.

Then I’d be annoyed at myself in the morning for going to bed to late.

It was like that all week.

OK, enough complaining. I have a busy morning: Today is the Worldwide Photo Walk here in Allentown, and I need to get out for a run and get over there. We have about 15 people but I hope we get some new drop ins.

I’ll blog about it.

Maybe.

Don’t become a social media zombie.

Make sure your refrigerators don’t get to fancy. (Interesting, because I had an IG conversation with Kendrick Brinson about journaling and my weekly reviews, i.e., my refrigerator.)

“When a portrait evokes a feeling, then you’ve got something. Technique isn’t really important. What I want is a believable moment.” ~ Bert Stern who would have been 89 this past week.
