I have been on a hiatus from photography for the longest time in my journey as a hobbyist photographer.
I attributed this to the following factors:
1) lack of time
2) the lack of drive
3) the lost of spark
All these boiled down to one significant personal event - the demise of my Father.
Since the demise of my Father, I experienced many losses. The fatherly figure who inspired me to do photography. He was always there when I took a new photo and he would share his criticisms and told me how I could improve on my shots. I always felt so excited then whenever I took a new shot. But since his demise, I just lost total interest in photography.
Now that I'm back, I question why I'm doing photography. For him or for myself?
I keep asking myself - what led me to photography? what will keep me going?
I think it's time that I bring some closure to that and get back to photography; this time doing it for myself because it's my passion, my interest.
So, hi there, I'm back
