First Day, First Step

Here I go. A new day with a new beginning, heading for the unknown. Blogs are nothing new to me, I have a couple family members who have their own blog. Starting a blog has been on my mind for awhile now. Of course those who are close to me seem to always hound me to "get it going" and somehow the days go by without starting a blog.

Yesterday was a cloudy and wet Northern California day; so I stayed inside working on an upcoming photography job. Sitting behind a computer screen for the most part listening to rain drops fall onto my roof. Which is amazing to me, I love the rain. Sometime mid-afternoon I decided to go outside and walk around.

I had walked a few steps through a large puddle and imagined myself as a child again. It was deep enough to jump up and make a huge splash. It was the perfect puddle to jump into, the one a child splashes into getting all of those around him or her soaked.

After a few seconds I finally looked back up. It was amazing; a double raindow clear as could be right in front of me. I turned around a ran back inside, slidding all over the floor in an attempt to make it to my camera bag. After running through my house like an over excited puppy I grabbed just my camera and off I went.

Once I got into place the rain started again and the rainbows began fading away. I was able to get a few pictures but not as many as I would have liked to. While trying to capture the moment I decided now was the time to start moving forward with my dreams.

So here I am; this is just the beginning of a long journey.
