"Song-ography...


 "I'm thinking life's too short, it's passing by
So if I'm gonna go at all
Go big or go home...


"Go Big or Go Home"
Iphone
Squaw Valley, California


...I'm gonna live my life
I've got no regrets
Go big or go home."

-Go Big or Go Home (American Authors)


Knock, knock. Who's there?  SEPTEMBER!  Which means my hiatus is over and I'm back in the blogging saddle again.  As much as I love my photography AND my blogging, gotta admit...it was darn refreshing to put down the camera, and step away from the blog for a respite.  Not sure I got my creative spark lit up again, but at least it's well rested.  Doesn't mean I didn't take any photos.  But the photography I did participate in for the most part, was of daily life via the old Iphone. Two things I learned?

1.  It was nice to not be tethered down to the Canon.  It certainly allowed me to capture more of the "day-to-day" of my life...as it happened. And I don't THINK I was quite as annoying to all my friends when I wanted to snap away.

2.  And boy, do I hate the quality of my Iphone camera!  I've decided to go big, or go home and switch to a Samsung
(may the Android force, be with me!).

August was filled with living my life.  Lots of laughs.  Some tears.  Spending it with family and friends.    Passing time at home, and on the road (or in the air).  Saying hello.  Saying good-bye.  Endings.  New beginnings.  Pretty much August is the month also known as "Go Big or Go Home" for moi.  I will be documenting some of the happenings in the next week or two.

But for today, I'm just happy to be back here...with one photo.  Since it's been a month since my last post, not sure how many will remember that today is Song-ography.  But the link up is posted, and we'll see how many remember it is indeed SEPTEMBER.  Bring on Fall.  Cooler temps, college football, brilliant colors, challenging my brain by learning the android way of doing things, and my new normal as the newest member of the "Empty Nest Society".  Go big or go home!

Since it's been awhile, click on the Song-ography link in the banner for Song-ography specifics.  But it can be explained generally here:

Song/lyric + photo(s) = Song-ography

Since it's the first Tuesday of the month, a prompt was given:  American Author's "Go Big or Go Home".  It's up to you if you decide to use it, or go your own way.  The rest of the month?  It's totally your choice.  Thanks for linking up AND...I'll be by to see whatcha' been up to!
