in with the new

esterday I got to go to CreativeLive's studio to be part of the live audience and learn from some amazing photographers.  They're doing their annual PhotoWeek, which is a week long "conference" full of seminars on all aspects of photography, and it's totally free this week, while it runs live.  I love CreativeLive's classes, so it was really fun to get to go to their studios in Seattle and get to be a part of the production!  They rebroadcast the day's classes after they wrap at 5, so if you work during the day you can still catch the action on the evening rebroadcast.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, transitional seasons always seem to transcend just the changing of the climate.  It almost always feels like a time for life changes too.  Fresh starts.  New projects.  Goals.  Fall always hits me particularly hard with this, probably because for so many years it really was the start of a new season of life with school starting.  New exciting classes, new stationary, new notebooks, pens and pencils, books, new clothes.  As sad as I am to see summer go, fall is such a great time for refocusing and settling down.  I love all the holidays, birthdays, and events that the end of the year brings, it seems like there's always something to look forward to.
