Fall break

I’m taking a break from my blog, starting today.

I want to use my blogging time to focus on other projects. With any luck they will include a new book of my film photography. I’ve wanted to start these projects for months but life is full. That time has to come from somewhere.

I’ll respond to comments, and I’ll still comment on your blog if you have one, but there will be no new posts here. I’m not exactly sure when I’ll return but November 1 feels about right.

Indiana State Road 45

If you miss the blog while it’s taking this break, know that there are 2,154 posts in the archive. That’s eleven and a half years of my photos and stories! The archives do get lonely and would love your visit. Click the button to be whisked to a random post from the past.


See you soon!

  1. Jim, wishing you a productive and fruitful break. I have no idea how you’ve kept such a prolific publishing rate the last few years, I struggle with three posts a week sometimes let alone six.

    That random post generator is a great idea! I remember I used to have a few Tumblr blogs that had this built in. It was brilliant for the projects I was using them for (haiku and short stories) so readers could just dip in randomly as and when they wanted.

    • You can randomize your blog too! Just add /?random after your URL. It’s a hidden WordrPress feature.

      The blog has been a joy and also a beast that needs to be fed. The joy part drives me to post, the beast part drives me to take a break. My first ever. Gonna be interesting to see how it feels.

  2. Ye God’s, the foundation of the heavens is shaken! Seriously, you are certainly entitled to a hiatus so may it be a restful and fruitful one. We can survive a month without you. I think. :)

    Hope you have a great break Jim only don’t enjoy it to much as you might not want to come back see you soon :)

    Good luck, Jim! More and more I appreciate that (often, but not always) ministry settlements come with an expectation of a sabbatical period built in – sometimes even with provisions that the minister attempt no productive work or projects! I applaud that you are letting your field grow fallow for a time; it’s one of the only checks against burnout.

  5. i will certainly miss your photos and comments. but definitely understand the need to pick projects with care. there are so many projects – great ones – out there to do, that it is only through culling some out that we can devote the time necessary to really accomplish great things.

  6. Hi Jim. Man, YOU take a break? Come on now that doesn’t seem right! 😊 Ah man, if anyone deserves a break it’s you! I look forward to another book if you have one in the works. Your Pentax book is in my collection of photo books!
