I would be very surprised if anyone actually reads this journal, but in the off chance that someone still cares about my profile I feel obligated to provide a basic update.
I am still a photographer. In fact, I'm the president of the Photo Club at my university. However, I have stopped posting to deviantArt for two reasons. First and foremost, I've become disillusioned with the community here. I no longer find it enriching or helpful to me as a student of photography. People rarely comment, and I've lost the drive to post new photos. Secondly, I haven't had inspiration in some time. In fact, the last time I was excited about photography was in October of 2009. I remember it specifically because I was at a beach in Portugal at sundown scrambling around to get the perfect shot. Since then, photography has not excited me. I'm sure it isn't the photography itself, but just my current personal state. I still love and value it as a medium, and I do photo excursions with friends on a regular basis. I just have not felt it deep inside for a long time.
Basically, I'm not going to be posting here any time soon. If I get the drive to post again, I will, and if I don't, I won't. Thank all of you for following me.
