Fridays

Copyright Monica L. Shulman
I love shooting anonymous cityscapes and this one from London is my new favorite.

After weeks of fighting with my computer and procrastinating to the point of absurdity I'm finally getting a new machine next week. I'm seeing a Genius next week and it's happening. In the past I've been somewhat resistant to change but as I've gotten older I'm embracing it more and more and even welcoming it. I've been thinking a lot about the blog lately and how much it has changed and evolved since the beginning. For a long time I thought about going back and getting rid of some old posts and hiding old photos from my archives on Flickr but then I realized that whatever came before always has to serve the ultimate purpose of showing how far I've come and how much I've grown. I think it's such a good lesson and one of the most important ones I have (finally) learned. I hope you have a fantastic weekend and here are some fun links from around the web.

Speaking of cityscapes, did you catch my new tutorial this week?
