Celebrating 100

As I looked back on all the photos I’ve taken since starting this blog; I have to admit… it’s an immense feeling of accomplishment for me. I didn’t really know where this blog would take me or what I would accomplish by posting my images and thoughts for the world to see. Now six months and 100 posts later — one thing I do know is that without the motivation and commitment of this blog; I wouldn’t have taken so many photos and in the process gained some profound insights about who I am and my view on life. Thank you to all who have support the unfolding of my blog and leaving encouraging comments. The comments are a definite motivational source. I guess it’s like having someone patting you on the back… telling you a job well done. And even if it isn’t your best; it feels good to know your effort is appreciated. I’m sure many of you bloggers out there can identify with what I am talking about when I say — blogging is a life changing experience in more ways than one.

So what have you learned from your blog? For me, it was learning to Shoot for the Moon even if it seems so far away…

Because you never know what tomorrow will bring… but know that it’s
Another Day, Another Opportunity

To see things from a different perspective…  and be amazed by The World of Tiny Details

and Living In The Moment because the joy and laughter you can have by not dwelling on the past…

Even though at times when I feel like a Photographer in Distress

Uncertain that Shooting Ducks is my best…

Yet I feel blessed… to have the choice of Marching to a Different Drummer beat; knowing I’ve never been much of a sheep.

 The blog lets me shoot whatever I think is cool. Although, I realized I’m Stuck On Food. And it’s a passion I would like to pursue.

Rainy Day Fun

I had so much fun on my date with Macro yesterday, I was hoping for a second date… unfortunately, the rain came back. Not wanting to risk getting my camera wet, I decided to shoot whatever I could find around the house.  I bought a studio light box last week, so I thought today would be good to experiment with light and exposure. I started with my dog, Frisette. She was a great model… no attitude problems and only cost me a chicken jerky.

The next subject was my breakfast… when I first sat down to eat it, I thought it looked pretty enough for a picture and maybe I could shoot a few frames before eating it. Right… those few shots turned into a couple of hours. It was afternoon by the time I was done with it. 

Okay… I did sneak in a little Marco time with this shot.
