Retirement. Plenty of time to do whatever you want. Wrong. There is never enough time. So one must prioritize, like always. But the choices of what one must devote time to are much broader. Which makes prioritizing more difficult. Photography is one of those priorities. When I studied photography back in the dark (room) age I was hooked. Since I live in an industrial area, I was fortunate to be able to practice industrial photography as a sideline for a few years. But life has a way of changing one’s priorities. So serious photography wound up moving to the back burner for a good while. Now it’s back. But it’s different now. Now we have digital and it is absolutely wonderful. Immediate feedback with unlimited creative options. But it is the immediate feedback that is so appealing. And if you don’t like it, just go back and do it over, the only expense being your time. While I do miss the old red lights in some ways, I love photography in the digital age.
