I have something to show you.
I've been taking all these pictures of food and not telling you about it. I hope you don't mind. There's no recipes to go with them, or stories long enough to make a complete blog post. Just the photos. Images of food, captured through a lens, a lens I'm trying very desperately to learn.
I guess you could say that's where I've been -- that's what might explain my pathetic posting schedule around these parts lately. Taking pictures, and posting them elsewhere. Some of them don't even have to do with food. Like these.
Do you like them? Would you like to see more of them? Because here's the thing: I'm thinking about merging my photo blog and my food blog into one big...photo and food blog. Which means that Happy Jack Eats wouldn't be just about eating, but also about the simple beauties I find in everyday life.
When I started this food blog, I never thought I'd find a new interest in photography. But I got used to pulling out my camera whenever I sat down to eat, and pretty soon I started pulling out my camera whenever I saw a pretty flower, or the sky turned a certain shade of purple, or the light hit the table just so. I also never thought that blogging would start to feel like a chore, an obligation, and I certainly never wanted it to. I just wanted it to be an outlet for me. A way to explore, and learn, and grow.
I started my photo blog for my new venture into photography, but really, I don't think the two should be separate anymore. I don't want to feel guilty about neglecting one space because I'm nurturing another. And so here I am, and I need your opinion. I don't want to do anything I might regret, after all, since the last time I messed around behind the scenes, I nearly deleted the entire blog.
I'll still keep the Happy Jack Eats address, and once I figure out if merging the two even works (won't that be awkward if it doesn't?), you'll see the same blog here, speckled with posts from here.
Let me know what you think? Because you've been reading and sharing and motivating and inspiring me through it all. Thank you for that.
