Ten Years Gone

Ten Years Gone. Besides being one of my favorite Led Zeppelin songs, it’s also the amount of time I have had this blog! My first post was an introduction of the start of my 365 photo project for 2011. I always wanted to do a 365 project and I was laid off from work at the time, so I thought…

Let it snow!

Ah yes, the snow has returned to WordPress!! It’s the most wonderful time of year! To add to the delight, I believe this photo I shot today has that light, snowy feel to it, even though it’s a weed. A dandelion in December! I haven’t done much macro work this year, most likely because I haven’t owned a macro lens since June.…

Buildings, new and old

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…

Man of few words

That’s me. Tonight at least. I shall resume later. For now a pretty picture.

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…
