    Bonjour Kate

    Wow this photography business is far more complicated than l thought. As you can see from my blog l really love taking pictures but it was only this last week when somebody asked me how much my photos cost did l thing about the commercial possibilities. I researched some stuff on the net and see that starting locally with small exhibitions of my work could be a way forward. However, being engaged in displaying stuff to a disinterested public in the forlorn hope that some nice person will dig deep to have one of my framed pictures on their wall fills me full of depressed ambivalence. So l will work my way through your interesting videos (and wardrobe) in the hope of picking up some positive and valuable advice.



    • Dan,

      It’s true… the photography business can be complicated. It can also be incredibly rewarding. But you do really have to want it, so that you don’t give up when the challenges arise. I encourage you to keep moving forward… small steps are all that’s necessary to move you in the right direction.

      Thanks for the wardrobe comment. You made me smile! 🙂

    thanks for following my blog, the art of life. I guess you do have the balance thing down. I don’t know how people do so much! my daughter is a navy chief, mother of two, wife and takes college courses. totally opposite of me. 🙂

    • I think in this day and age we all do more than we really should. I know I am not even capable of doing everything that I try to do, but heck… I do love this adventure called LIFE!

      • Paula says:

        me too! i think americans are the worse at relaxing and push and push. we are taught to do this at a very early age. relaxing is for kids and adults, work, work, work. 🙂

    Hi Kate,
    Firstly, many thanks for stopping by my blog and deciding to follow 🙂 Secondly, I apologise that I’m only thanking you now, as it was quite a few weeks ago when you began to ‘follow’ me. Your blog brims with life, but the thing that I relate to the most is your vision statement which I simply love! That being, “Live, Love, Laugh and Leave a Legacy. I feel you have captured the sentiment by which I try to live my life. 🙂 I look forward to following your blog.

  38. Amazing blog! Very resourceful. Thanks.
