I'll Make You So Sure About It

Out On A Limb

Recently, My Other Limb has been a little quiet. In fact, this entire year, MOL has been rather more infrequently active than usual and, unless you are a friend, Facebook acquaintance, or follow my second blog (Queen's English), then the reason that that has been the case may not have been obvious.

Just under three weeks ago, I emigrated to America to be with, and marry, the man I love. I gush about this plenty on Queen's English and, what with this being a photo blog and only a photo blog (except for the odd written post like this one), that's all I'm going to say on the matter here. But this whole year has been flying by in a whirlwind of planning, visa application forms, a summer in England with aforementioned almost-husband, and then the practicalities of the actual move itself. This is why MOL has been so quiet during 2011.

The reason I'm posting now is to say that, other than a few other visa-related loose ends and just a smidgen of last-minute wedding planning, I'm back, and have been attached to My Other Limb just the same as always, so new photos will be winging their way to the interwebs over the coming weeks. On top of that, I have an exciting opportunity coming up: an internship with a brilliant photographer here in Charlotte, NC, and am now looking around for other internship opportunities for December and the new year, too. I'm determined to give MOL a shot at being the job (or at least one of them!), rather than the hobby, and am lucky to have the chance to do this now. Not being allowed to do paid work until our marriage paperwork and my green card come through (which will be about March/April 2012) is being treated as a blessing in disguise and, though I am a little apprehensive about all of the new learning that's ahead of me, - both photographic and cultural, I might add! - me and My Other Limb are raring to go.

Published!

I woke up this morning to find out that two of my photos have been published in Inside Line (The UK's First Roller Derby Magazine) - very exciting! Check out the article here.
