So, I was offered a full-time job as a photographer yesterday that caught me by surprise.  There’s a lot to think about, I’m still a bit dumbfounded. One the one hand, I’m 52 and could use the security that comes with vested benefits, this is especially important being diabetic. On the other hand, I’ve worked very hard to get to this point to get the stable of clients I have. Working full time would mean giving up the majority or all of them.
This morning I spent some time photographing these shells my wife keeps in a basket. I placed them on the floor in the sunlight and made a few exposures with the macro mode of the Canon G10. This is the one I liked the best.

So I guess everyone knows how talented you are--not just your blog world friends. In the words of "The Sandlot" (great movie)--"Follow your heart, kid-- and you'll never go wrong."

I love shells. There is something so fascinating about the way they look and feel.
