When I was in high school I rocked my DA account. Then life happened and it had been months since I even used my camera. Then, on the weekend gone, I was asked to do the photography for a wedding. Out of this beautiful event i got some fantastic shots, and it was just like the good old days.
Moral of the story - Don't put the things (or people) you love on the back burner. Sure, they will always wait for you and be there for you, but why not embrace them now?
