My Uncle Ben told me the secret to being a good photographer was to take lots and lots of pictures, then only share the best ones.  So every day I  try to share one great photo.  That isn’t as easy as it sounds.

When I travel, I take so many I love, and I want to share them all.  This project has taught me to edit and find the one image which really captures the essence of what I am seeing and feeling rather than 20 which become tedious to the viewer.

When I am home, I get caught up in the daily grind.  It is sometimes hard to stop and take a few pictures. Knowing I need a picture for the blog forces me to look at the world a little differently.  I always stop and think, would that be a good picture?

Taking lessons with Paul D’Andrea, I learned to apply basic techniques, to make great effects happen deliberately. He taught me to bring my point of view into each photos.  So this is my point of view.

Gotta Love Roo

My friend has recently adopted an Austrailian Shepard puppy. His full name is Rosevelt, but he has lovingly been nicknamed Roo. He is active, sweet, and friendly and brings a smile to everyone who sees him. He is usually too hard to photograph because he is so active,...

Slow Butterfly

Usually, butterflies are hard to photograph. Just as you get the image focused they fly off. Not this guy, he was content to let me snap away from multiple angles. I think he is a Monarch Butterfly with his deep brown color and spots on the...

The Flower or the Bee

I saw this single purple flower in a field and decided to take a photo. It wasn't until I opened the file in Photoshop and zoomed in that I also captured an image of a bee in the center. So is this a photo of a flower or a bee? You decided. I...

Office Cats in Charge

We get so much joy from having cats in the office. Sure it can be challenging to work around them, but I wouldn't have it any other way. This is actually Clyde's desk. There have been three different people sit there in the last year. While  Clyde doesn't mind...
