Anseong Cultural Festival

     I was glad that the next festival on the list is held here in Anseong.  It's actually a pre-festival festival.  It might have been scheduled a little early in the middle of the week, and I still have to work during the opening, but I'm still glad it's just nearby.  The problem is I have the dates and time mixed up.  It's not a really big deal but I was really looking forward to attend the opening.

Festivals and Chaos

     Hyoseok festival experience gave me a lot of mixed feelings. Feeling disappointed on myself for not performing well, but feeling proud that I got good enough pictures.  Feeling good that I got to see some other places (thanks to this hobby), but also feeling bad that I don't get to experience the events much.  But the most dominant feeling is the craving for more of this.  More events to attend to.  More places to visit.  And most especially, more pictures to take.

It's not all that bad.

       I figured out what was wrong with me.  It's my body that's been telling me to take a break.  I wasn't losing interest at all!  I was simply losing energy.  From my post "Cropping out the Fat," you can tell how much I go through to take pictures.  Lack of sleep, fatigue from work, fatigue from carrying such weight while walking for endless hours, stressing out on getting the right shot, blah blah blah.  Just that the consequences came crashing down on me.  So I guess all I needed was rest.

       So I had a lot of rest!  My god, the difference it makes when you're well conditioned for the task.  I have been to many other events and took a lot more pictures.  I was just guilty of complaining and that's why I haven't written anything for the past months.

       But I'm back!
