One thing I’ve learned travelling full time is that you cannot do everything all the time. I need a rest from this!
I’m sure some people think I am on an extended vacation, but it actually takes quite a bit of work to build a new life as a nomadic photographer. Photographing, processing images, uploading, writing the blog posts, writing a newsletter, writing ebooks, responding to emails and blog comments, interacting with other photographers on twitter and G+, taking care of Oscar, my ancient beagle, and planning the next destination all at the same time. Not to mention time actually spent in transit (that’s when I listen to my photography podcasts).
It’s a good thing I am passionate about photography or it might feel like work! I really love what I am doing now, but it can be exhausting sometimes. I’m glad Ray does all the cooking and maintains the truck and fifth wheel.
I’ve finally finished processing all my images from the Everglades. Okay, who am I kidding, there are still tons left, but I am moving on now. It will be my summer project to go back through all the images from my trip and pick out the good ones that didn’t get processed on the road.
Over Christmas, I took a much needed break in the Florida Keys, which means I hardly have any photos from there. I left my camera tucked away while I read, suntanned on the beach, snorkelled and wandered around the campsite chatting to people and admiring the palm trees. I do have these two images to share.
I am not on vacation. I am not working. I am living!!
