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.
