Over at Shooting Suburbia we have the final installment of "The Many Days In The Life Of Yello Bear" for your enjoyment, which also marks the end of the current incarnation of that blog as everyone knows it. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I was leaning towards putting my picture blog on a short hiatus because not only was I getting ready to do a little job hunting but I was becoming mighty unmotivated to continue it.
For the time being, my wonderful picture blog is going on a temporary hiatus. The job hunting is going excruciatingly slow (45 minutes to do one online app, which is pretty damn discouraging) and the motivation to continue the picture blog is still pretty much shot to pieces.
But that isn't to say that there might be some light at the end of the tunnel, because I did have an epiphany of sorts while I was out doing my morning errands this past Saturday (9/17).
This past Saturday, the day and the weather were picture perfect. In other words, it was sunny and just mild enough for an early autumn day that you could wear a hoody without sweating. While I was walking, I got to enjoying the scenery so much that I actually reached into my pocket for a camera to take pictures. Then I remembered that I haven't carried a camera on me for about five months.
But then I got to thinking about a suggestion that a couple of regular blog readers had made when I was lamenting my use of disposable cameras: why didn't I get one of those cheapy digital cameras to use?
Viola! A solution to one part of the problem.
I have one of those cheapy video cameras that doubles as a digital camera. I have a reusable memory card, and I have one of those USB cables to upload the pics to my computer.
I still have motivation issues as well as time issues to work on, but if enough things finally start to fall into place, Shooting Suburbia will once again be an active participant in the world of Weblogs. Until then, it simply remains just another testament to my ability to start up a semi-successful blog that poaches yet another part of the creative person that is me.
