A few weeks ago I traveled up to the ADKs to visit family. It was a much needed and overdue visit.

I feel like I’m FINALLY settling into my LIFE. That’s weird to write, but I’m not really sure how else to explain it. I’ve always been working towards some sort of goal: graduate with my BFA, graduate with my MFA, find a full-time job I really want to commit to… so many goals. I’m turning 30 next month (O M G !) and I can proudly say I’ve reached all of my goals up to this point in my life. AWESOME!

Time for new goals.

Now that I finally feel like I’ve got my life in order, now I can enjoy it! I have mixed feelings about turning 30 next month. On one hand, like I said, I’ve accomplished a lot up to this point, but then again I haven’t accomplished what 16yr old Megan thought I would have accomplished by now. I’m not married (not even close!), I don’t have any kids, I don’t own my own house… see where I’m going with this? A couple of weeks ago I started a new full-time job. MY full-time job. I love the organization I’m working with and I love what I’m doing there. FINALLY. This is what I needed.

Settling into MY LIFE now I’m looking forward to picking back up photography, letterpress, maybe take a ceramics class or two… I’m excited to create again! I’ve never craved having a camera in my hand like I do right now. I miss taking pictures. All of the above photos are from my Instagram account – photos I took while home (yes, it snowed!!) – photos taken with my iPhone. I NEED to use my film cameras again. I’m especially excited to shoot with my Hasselblad – it’s been way too long.

I have weekends off now! It’s been YEARS since I’ve had a “normal” schedule and I will be taking full advantage of it. PHOTOGRAPHY is coming back to this blog! I’m SO EXCITED.

Off to order some 120 film

The Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery

This past weekend I traveled home to the ADKs for a family weekend. On my way back to ROC Sunday afternoon I stopped by The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY. I checked out Nancy Grossman: Tough Life Diary, Extensions of the Eye: Three Women Photographers, Opener 23 Pam Lins: Denver Gold, and Donald Moffett: The Extravagant Vein. This was my first time visiting Tang and the building is AMAZING. Sadly, they do not allow cameras in the exhibits so the below images are from the Tang website. Be sure to follow the links to see even more work!
