*Please Excuse the Silence*

Forgive me, friends, for I have sinned.
It has been 28 days since my last blog post.

2010 was such a great year, but with the highest volume in DDP's history, it was a very busy year.  There was almost NO time for marketing, promotions, seminars, trainings, and most importantly; practice.  I can't think of a single time I picked up my camera, just for fun and inspiration, just to play around with one of my greatest loves.  This is going to have to change, because one sure way to kill a fun hobby is to create a business.  I'm going to try harder to juggle 'business' photography with my 'hobby' photography.  I think it's important to keep the inspiration alive and never forget why I started this in the first place...  It's one of my greatest passions.  It always has been.

52 Fridays
Last year I made a pathetic attempt at Project 365.  I should be proud, however, to be the first to invent 'Project 8'... because that's about how far I got.  Ack!  This year, I am committing myself to '52 Fridays'.  Though there may not be time and opportunity every single day, I will MAKE the time to have fun experimenting at least every single week.  And I will share them with you every Friday.

Mystery Macro Mondays
Over the course of 2010, the DDP Facebook page enticed hundreds of people to... "like this".  We've now surpassed 800 fans, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE corresponding with friends, fans, clients, family through this outlet.  It's so easy!  If you're not already a fan, please consider.  Starting today, I'm going to put a little more fun into the DDP FB page and i'm encouraging you all to participate!  Just for fun, i'm going to be posting a new macro image every Monday and it's your job to figure out WHAT IT IS.  It's just a good old guessing game, so stay tuned, and get ready to GUESS!

The next 3 months are generally slow for photographers, and i'm planning on taking advantage by soaking up as much family time as I can, giving my home office a big face-lift, and catching up on everything else that got pushed aside through the busy year of 2010.  But you'll still see me around.. pushing out those Mystery Macro Mondays & 52 Fridays!

Thank you for following my work and my journey, and thank you dearly for your support.  Here's to another great year ahead!
