In recent weeks I have come to miss the original intent of why I started blogging. It started out being a more personal reflection of where I was at the retirement crossroads of my life. I enjoyed sharing my everyday thoughts and sometimes feelings of where I was and where I hoped to go.
Then, along came Skywatch, Ruby Tuesday, Watery Wednesday, and all those other wonderful memes around blogland. I was intrigued at finding the right photo to fit the right theme. It truly makes my day when I find something I think fits the theme well and I can hardly wait to share it with my readers. Photography has become a passion of sorts. I'm just an amateur and many of you out there inspire me to want to learn and be a better photographer. I don't want to name names and leave anybody out; but I know some of you know who you are by the comments I leave you. You truly are an inspiration.
The question for me became 'how can I do both?'
The simplest and maybe the hardest decision as well was to start a photoblog. At least that's what I've decided to do. I'm only going to post what I consider my better photos on the new blog. Most of those will no doubt be geared to the memes where it really is all about the photo. Here at Round The Bend I will hopefully be doing a little more writing and soul searching if you will. Sometimes some of the memes will be posted here because I'll find something I simply must talk about. :)
The debut of my new blog, CARLETTA'S CAPTURES, was yesterday afternoon for the Today's Flowers meme. If you haven't seen it I hope you'll click over and take a quick look and let me know what you think.
How long will I be able to keep up two blogs? I don't know. I do know inspiration has hit and I'm just going to see where it takes me!
