To pick, or not to pick.. that is the question.

A few nights ago (restless and unable to sleep, as my husband was away) I lay awake thinking about where I've been and what I've done and where I'm going.
I realised that my days of equestrian photography are pretty much over. I still get the occasional request for photos from shows I was at, but I have not photographed a horse in a good few months, in any capacity.
Those days are over, I suppose, and I need to move forward and decide where I want to take my photography. What genre appeals to me now - what do I have access to that others don't?
It was both a very sad thought and quite exciting too.
Luckily, I find I am drawn to various types of photography now and this makes me happy, as I have a great deal of access to these inspirational and challenging ideas.
Architecture - old and new.
Military - memorial and modern.
Travel - I am living in Europe! There is so much to see!
Landscapes and natural environments - I am surrounded by breathtaking vistas, from rural farms to snow covered mountains and dark forests. Fairy tale stuff!
People - I find my candid (and often, sneaky) photographs of people rather appealing!
Food - I am discovering a new love of cooking and baking and I am trying to remember to take photos of my creations, before they are devoured.
I also still love taking photos of animals (birds, snakes, dogs, cats, anything that moves into my viewfinder) and that will never change - just the location :)

So, while I have, sadly, lost touch with the equestrian event side of my photography (where I learned my most valuable lessons) because of moving away from the hub in Cape Town - I can say that I have a lot to discover here, and a lot to learn and Europe has a lot to offer.

Just needed to write that down.
Thanks for reading.

Going to be working on a book - about something I am quite good at.
(Does not involve horses - directly - Imagine that!)

Fresh Start! New location! New ideas!
Going to try and push a few of my boundaries and try some new things, but always with my same vision and passion.
