I found this pic while digging through archives looking to fill up my new digital photography portfolio site. It’s been slow going, for several reasons: 1) There are huge numbers of photographs, on too many freaking discs, 2) None are categorized except by year, which sucks, ‘cuz I don’t want to see most of them, and 3) There aren’t very many good shots.

Photography had only ever been a hobby for me until I started selling digital cameras, and then began using them. Digital photography opened up a whole new interest when it became affordable for a poor hack like me, and I embraced it for a long time. Then I drowned my camera, and after a while, lost any knack I’d acquired.

When I bought a new and better camera, I was disappointed to discover that I just wasn’t interested anymore. So I’m going back to “hobbying” with it now, for the most part, but since I did find some decent shots, I decided to put up a portfolio site. You never know; I might find that spark again some day.

This particular photograph, when I found it again, just screamed “unemployed” at me. This is about what I feel like, being jobless.

I’ve put resumes in at two new postings (the good kind – temporary, but “useful feeling”), and I’m feeling fairly confident for both. Odd, that.

Now, I have to go search out a picture that screams “You Got the Job!” at me. You know – ‘cuz I’m gonna need one ready.

PS – That freelance web development job came through – I won’t starve for awhile… 🙂
