I participated in Scott Kelby’s 3rd Annual Photowalk this past Saturday here in downtown Bakersfield, CA. It was great to get out and see parts of town I had never seen. I met a lot of wonderful photographers at the event. I also jumpstarted my dive back into photography. (and to be honest, I was a little sore from squating and bending to take pictures…I need to workout more).

Please check out not only my pics from the event, but also the rest of the group that shot pics out in Bakersfield Also, you can check out pictures from all over the world on Flickr.

I’m on the verge of something big. 

I’ve had a hobby/dream for quite some time.  And it finally might be coming true.  A few more months will tell.  I almost don’t want to believe it because it would really be depressing if it all just fell apart.  But I guess I’m in control of that. 

Do you ever have these crazy dreams of following your passion and then that doubt creeps in and gnaws away at you until it just seems impossible.  That’s what I do to myself…all the time.  I’m afraid to put my dreams into words because that would mean that its my responsibility to actually make them come true.  If they just remain in my head then if they fall apart who cares…who knows but me.  But this time…the cat is out of the bag…I’m accountable…and the funny thing is that I am actually excited…not scared…okay so maybe a little scared, but more excited.  Tomorrow I might be terrified…but today…I am making it happen!
