Breaking the rules…

Unlike laws rules are guidelines established as starting points they are meant to be bent or broken. On a recent outing I made the decision to shoot landscapes with a macro lens and I shot macros with a super zoom.1 landscape w macro 1-2 landscape w macro 3-9186-23 macro with super zoom 2-53634 thistle blooms-5517

Do you break the rules or bend them?

All we are is dust in the wind so count your blessings and go take more photos.

A photo retrospective

Each year is filled with challenges and 2016 was no exception. Without faith family friends and photography I don’t know how I would have gotten through this one. The original thought for this post was to share twelve of my favorite pics from 2016 on this poor neglected blog of mine. By the time I got to May I was bogged down with so many favorites that the plan was revised (😂). So today I will share a bunch of my favs in no particular order or size and at some point in the future I will share some more.

Thanks for stopping by I hope you enjoy the views. Cheers to all, we will see what 2017 has to offer. Keep in mind that all we are is dust in the wind so count your blessings and go take more photos.

I’ve been Explored

Recently two of my photos have been selected by Flickr Explore. What is Explore and what does it mean to me? Approximately 2 million photos are uploaded daily to Flickr photo sharing site so the chances of people viewing your photos other than friends and family that follow you are slim. Flickr has an algorithm that selects 500 interesting photographs every day that go into a special stream giving them an higher than average chance of being viewed, fav’d or even commented on by more people. You may be wondering why I’m writing about Flickr in my blog post. Well, because it’s been fun having my photos selected and seeing how many thousands of views they have gotten after all I post them there to share with others, plus it’s been a little bonus to my ego 😊.

These are my photo’s that have been Explored I hope you enjoy and can view them on a large monitor:

I’ve been working on longer term projects that tell a story rather than posting random pics which is why there are fewer posts here. It’s easier to do the shooting than to put together a story that has taken weeks or months to compile into an editorial manner. I’d much rather be out in nature rather than sitting in front of the computer culling pictures and writing cohesive blurbs to add to the post. For those that have stuck with me here over the years I say thank you and many thanks for continuing along on my photographic journey as it unfolds.

We’re just dust in the wind count your blessings …now go take more photos!
