Why Passion Fruit?

It is good, they say, to start at the beginning.  So my first post is a short explanation on the choice of my blog’s title and intended content.

I have intended to get a blog up and running for a while now. And by a while I mean a good 5 or 6 years.  But, as it so often happens, I got (and still am for the most part) distracted along the way.  Fortunately I have managed to convert some of those distractions into longer running interests and eventually whittled those down into a few activities that I am genuinely passionate about.  And it is the results that come of these passions, the fruit of these passions, that I intend to capture here in this blog.

Albert Einstein is famously attributed to have said “I have no special talents, I am only passionately curious”.  I too am not especially talented, certainly not even close to Albert Einstein, but I do try to approach everything with a passion that I can hopefully share with you here.

First and foremost on the list of passion fruit will be the results of an ever growing obsession that is my photography.  There is a saying in photography circles that goes teach your children to love photography and they will not have the time or the money to get up to anything unsavoury. This has certainly held true for me the past few months and I will ask you to come with me on a journey as I take more pictures and hopefully improve.

I also tend to meander off sometimes.  Like I said, I am easily distracted. So other topics of interest include running, golf, cooking, eating, travel, music, reading, movies and of course writing.  Who knows what else will develop along the way.  All I know is that if it does, it shall be pursued passionately…

The first fully thought out post to follow soon!
