Knowing When to Quit

Images shot with Super-Takumar 55mm f1.8

It’s time to be honest.

With you, with this website, and with myself.

See that girl up there?

That’s how I feel about producing posts like the last one.

And it’s how I’ve felt for a long time.

Get this – the images in that post are almost a year old. That it took so long to get them written up speaks volumes about how much I’ve come to enjoy doing it.

10 blog posts over the past year backs this up.

It’s not that I don’t want to take photographs and write, because I do.

But not like that anymore.

Someone else can do travel guides.

So it’s time to quit.

To quit blogging like that.

To quit doing the kind of posts I find an absolute slog yet make myself do anyway, and do the kind I enjoy instead.

And that sounds so obvious now it’s been said.

People change. They evolve and grow.

They just don’t always want to admit it to themselves.

I’ve been sitting on these monochrome pictures for 6 months too.

I wasn’t really sure how to present them. What words to put with them.

They’re just lazy shots I took with a Super-Takumar 55mm f1.8 one day in Hong Kong.

Nothing more.

So I guess they don’t need any more words than that.

And neither does this post.

Not when I can be spending the time writing about the things that excite me now.

It’s time to change things up.

It’s time to write more of what I want and less of what I thought I needed to.
