Baking Hiatus, New Photo Projects, Daguerreotypes, & Other Ramblings



I have not been baking.  I think since January I’ve baked a carrot cake and lime bars. That’s it. I cannot believe that’s it! I’ve been focusing on my photography which has been rather time-consuming and has put baking on the back burner. 

I’ve spent quite a bit of time putting my photography website together. It’s finally in a place that feels good to me. Most of my photography has focused on nature. Flowers, animals, landscapes, etc. In recent months I’ve become somewhat obsessed with a new project focusing on old photographs of people. I explain it in my Forgotten Lives gallery on my site if you’re interested in reading more. The photo above is one example. 

With this project in mind, I felt it necessary to go back to the very start; the beginning of photography. The search of course has lead me to the daguerreotype. I’m becoming truly fascinated with this process and the daguerreotypes themselves. So completely different than our modern point and click digital age. I hope to start collecting these someday. I’ll probably need to work 5 jobs to afford that as they are highly sought-after and expensive. Argh!

I just realized in writing this post that I haven’t posted anything in 6 months. I think that’s the longest time I’ve gone without posting. 

Must. Post. More! And bake…
