People who need people

I have been looking at a lot of photography lately. And I mean a LOT!  It is my season to enter competitions and, in turn, reviewing the results of past competitions. The one thing I noticed is that judges really like photos with a human element. That’s really great considering I rarely have any people in my photographs. Probably because…

Grazing

Just like the cattle this blog needs constantly fed, and I’m doing a poor job of that lately. My apologies for the lack of new content the past month. This time of winter is my slow time for photography. A slow time for going out and shooting, even though it can be an incredible time for beautiful images, but a…

Cracks in the works

I ran across this tree-like crack in the ice of a very small pond and was drawn to how it was emanating from the small rock at the edge. I think I shot about a dozen different perspectives, some with the rock more prominent, but in the end I liked this “shot from above” look the best. Processing was another story. I spent…

Oh yeah, about that pod

I honestly thought I would be posting a lot more this year than I have so far. I had all intentions to focus on keeping this blog fresh and exciting but after the holidays I seemed to have gotten extremely busy at my day job getting caught up from the time off and the photography has sort of been almost non-existent.  Throw in…

Not dried up yet

Unlike these winter plants, I still think I have some life left in my photo skills to give this blog another go around for another year. Of course I am kidding because it’s not the photography I am worried about, it’s the writing and coming up with catchy subject matter to write about. I’m not one to do the “resolution”…

Seasons Greetings

I’m taking a few days off for the holidays and I want to thank all of my readers for stopping by this year. I’m not sure how much longer I’ll continue with this blog as I am looking into other ventures but I’ll stick it out for a little while at least. Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year!!

Back to school

I’ve posted photos of this old schoolhouse before but I had a chance recently to explore it a little more. Plus I had my Eos M camera with the 11-22 lens on me and I wanted the chance to shoot at a wider angle than I have in the past. Beyond that there’s not much else to say. The interior…

I’m going to have to pay up

I think those little ads on this site are annoying (especially since I don’t reap any benefits from them) so I plan on doing away with them soon. Most likely after the holidays, I plan on taking some time to upgrade my site and work on adding some galleries. The blog format isn’t a good way to showcase my work. What I’m not…

I see the snow has returned

The WordPress snow at least. It doesn’t bother me like it does some, and it’s only around for a month or so anyway. We all know that I don’t take myself seriously enough to think the “snow” is distracting from the importance of my blog. 😉 I’m still climbing the ladders of success though and I’ll soon make yet another…

I need more balls

Monkey balls, that is. It seems like this is a banner year for monkey balls, or hedge apples, bowwood, bois d’arc (French for “wood of the bow”), bodark, geelhout, mock orange, horse apple, naranjo chino, wild orange and yellow-wood. Offficially the Osage orange tree, has been quite noticeable for me this year as I drive around the rural regions of…
