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.

The spring tulips were jus past their peak, but there was still lots of color everywhere you turned.
Ok, so it is bad if you see the fungi before the tree dies, but once it is on the ground they are a beautiful reminder that life goes on.
Early on an April morning after it had rained the night before, I headed out, camera in hand to walk and snap photos with my iPhone. I was not disappointed!
Good Company My neighbor has this sweet, lovely and very well trained parakeet. I will often see her wandering through the neighborhood with the bird perched on her shoulder. Sometimes she chats and other times they just walk together in comfortable silence. She...
This one white flower is putting in an appearance a little early as if to encourage the rest of the garden to catch up.
