I love to go fishing. I don’t really care if I catch a fish or not; it’s the activity and relaxation that matters. Still, I love the joy and thrill of catching a fish. There’s also another equal joy in releasing the fish.

There’s one other type of catch always gives me great pleasure: the joy of catching up. This image was taken last November while shooting for my upcoming book, Greetings From California. (Due out in 2011) For those that know or may recall, earlier that year I had a fairly bad accident that really put me under the gun when it came time to writing and shooting for the book. The resulting time crunch continued forward. Meanwhile, other things had come up to take my attention over this last year. But now I’ve finally caught up on a huge backlog of image editing that has stemmed back to last year.

Ok, I’m not totally 100% caught up, but I am catching up. The trade off is that I’m now staring at a mountain of images which need keywording. – Ack!

Maybe I’ll go fishing instead…

    Nice one Gary. Great timing to get the guy in that light.
