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.
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 just a few images 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 hard to stop and take a few pictures. Knowing I need a pictures for the blog forces me to look at the world a little differently. I always stop and think, would that be a good picture?
I believe interesting photos are not just about the applying basic techniques, to make great effects happen deliberately. My favorite photos are the ones which bring the photographer’s point of view forward, so you see the world thorugh their eyes.
This is my point of view.

Culinary adventures in Greece
Sure, all the pastel colors are associated with this season, but to me, pink is the color of spring.
This pretty fellow ate and posed and ate some more.
I know it is silly, but as I zoomed in on this flower, I got the distinct impression it was looking back at me and scowling.
With two chairs facing west it must be the perfect place to sit and watch the sun set on a warm summer night.
These spiky flowers filled the boxes outside one of the banks downtown. They brought the right mix of color and attitude.
Not at home in Indiana
Art and Bloom at Newfields presents spectacular flowers you would not normally see anywhere in Indiana. This collection reminds me of Hawaii.
