It's late April, I shouldn't be dealing with this crap anymore! One month ago today(my birthday) it was in the 80's! I had to find my winter gloves again just to walk the dog. I blame the cold air Canada exports over the lakes.

This blog has been sitting dark for quite a few weeks. I've been in a bit of a dry spell when it comes to writing and therefore my blog took a back seat to other things in my life. It was after a lot of inner dialogue...
"Should I keep the blog, delete it, reformat it, what should I do!?" that I decided what would be best is to integrate something I do everyday into something I wish I did everyday.
What I mean by all this is simple.
Everyday at work I shoot lots of video. While the camera is rolling I often pull out my Android phone or Nikon point and shoot, and snap a photo or two. I wanted a way to share that simply without having to worry about creating an elaborate story behind each photo.
At the same time I've grown less and less fond of Facebook taking ownership and copyrights of the photos I bust my ass to get. I still wanted to share the things I see on the job and wanted to continue my "On the Job" series of albums I've had going for the past three years.
All this came crashing down on me over the past week and I finally did something about it. Through some research I found Posterous which allows me to create "Spaces" which are essentially blogs. They can also serve as photo albums in the right format. It was and hopefully will continue to be a huge sigh of relief for me.
Through posterous I can link my Facebook, Twitter, and blogger accounts, so any Posterous post I make is auto-posted on those other accounts. This allows me to continue to share my photos with Family and friends on Facebook, though they will have to follow a link to a new site.
My blog will be updated with every new photo I upload, most will have at least a caption, some will have a behind the scenes story because let's face it, that's why I'm doing all this to begin with.
I really didn't want to end this blog and I decided I wont being do so anytime doon. For the most part my posts here will come via Posterous. If I feel the need to sit down and write up a story, I'll do so here and only here. For the one person who may have actually read this far, thanks. Thanks for reading.

I still had a blast and got to see a world record get destroyed. A sea of cowbell is something quite impressive to see.
