New directions

Hello! So this blog has been dormant for some time now, the main excuse is because, for various reasons, I'm not really shooting any gigs. But I've been missing shooting and blogging so yesterday I had the thought... Why does this have to be a music photography blog? If my circumstances change then why can't this blog and my subject matter just change with it? Am I a photographer or am I a music photographer? Who am I? Why do I feel this way? Why is someone talking loudly in the quiet carriage on the train? What does "Dandenong" even mean?

Wait... what?

I lived in Sydney for 3 years before moving to Melbourne and I cut my teeth on the mean streets of that strange town with my trusty 20D and a cheap lens or two, shooting mostly street related photos. So I'm going to start taking my 20D with the same cheap lens to work with me again... I commute 20 hours per week so there will be A LOT of commuting photos.. I'll be shooting on the 20D and my iPhone and I'm going to evolve. Fuck. I might even try a new thing or two!

I'll still shoot gigs but it's not going to be the be-all-and-end-all of my shooting. That would be a great disservice to my photography passion. I'll be blogging a lot from my phone so the format may not always be the same between posts but I'll try and tidy this up at home :)
