Here Goes Nothin’!

So… a photography blog. Those of you who follow A Heart For My Shepherd will know that I’ve been considering this leap for some time now. Each time I begin to think I just might do this, something comes along to hold me back. Mostly my fears.

Am I “good enough” yet? That’s the question that won’t leave. You see, I believe there are too many people out there taking pictures and calling themselves photographers… and I don’t want to add to them. But if I tell myself, “You’re not one of those people.” then automatically I think, “Aren’t they telling themselves the same thing?” And this finds me stuck, going around in circles, wondering if a photography blog is really something I could/should do. Sometimes I annoy me, you know that?

So today I’m pushing aside the fears and jumping in. Today is a day for new things.

The truth is, I’m not the best photographer in the world and I’ll never claim to be. I’m still very much a rookie. So perhaps this can be a place to watch my progress. Perhaps one day I will look back on this first post and see where I’ve come from and where I’ve ended up. I do that often on A Heart For My Shepherd.

And I hope you’ll be there for the journey and enjoy the process with me. I hope I’ll take criticisms with grace and find joy in the sharing. I’ll do my best.

But enough rambling from me! Come! See the beauty of my Father’s world through the eyes of my lens.
