Right off the bat, 2016 has been a very different year for me than 2015. With my wife beginning to work and me becoming a stay at home dad, my circumstances have changed yet again, and I find my photography evolving to fit this new mold. The patience, trek, and time slot dedicated to my long exposure seascapes is something that is nearly incompatible with toting along a 2 and 6 year old to the beach. It is much simpler for me to bring my long lens and shoot surfers, birds, and my kids as the sun sets. I'm learning patience in ways I never dreamed, but this is always been a weakness for me, so I'm finding that to be a silver lining.
