Several years ago, my wife and I visited Lake Brownwood State Park in Texas. We got away from the kids for a few hours and had our cameras to enjoy the outdoors.
Do you remember back when Instagram first came out? It was not social-focused like it is today. It was photo-focused. And I totally miss that.
The story of this picture I took is simple. While trekking around the concrete and steel jungle of Singapore, snapping my camera at a myriad of sites, this one stood out amongst them. You can't not look up at this thing when standing under it. The tower of glass and steel angles form this cool... Continue Reading →
It’s that time of year again when the Texas Bluebonnets fully bloom! And that means it’s time to dust off my “real” cameras and get to shootin’!
A few years ago, my commuter vehicle had just two wheels. At first, it was a cruiser-style motorcycle. But later I became the proud rider of the coolest big scooter ever my eyes beheld - the Yamaha Majesty. Back then I rode motorbikes because they were super economical - light on gas, low cost maintenance,... Continue Reading →
Another day. Another deletion. This time it was Instagram. I had almost deleted my account back in December last year but just removed the app from my iPhone and left the rest alone. Until today. I dropped a nuke from orbit. There wasn't much to nuke really. I had only just created my account in... Continue Reading →
It's been a long time since I posted any photos on my blog. I take pictures all the time of course, but I have not pursued photography in quite a while. Years ago it was a big hobby of mine. But the photo bug doesn't bite as much as it used to.In a month or... Continue Reading →
I love the Fall! And photography is also a hobby and passion of mine. I don't do it much these days because...busy! But my camera is always in my pocket (iPhone 6). So last Sunday walking into church, I saw the tree with it's bright yellow leaves. My brain goes, "Ok, I gotta capture that... Continue Reading →
Every year, I like to add a fresh batch of bluebonnet pictures to my collection. They're the Texas state flower, and they only last about 3 to 4 weeks a year--plus they're blue! The bluebonnets for 2018 sprung up a day or two before the equinox; I first noticed them on March 20th and started... Continue Reading →
When it comes to photos: snap it, edit it, share it, repeat. But where do you share it online? If you're a fickle photo shooter like me, you may bounce between multiple sites. Wouldn't it be simpler to settle on just one? A few months ago, I wrote a post about re-finding Flickr to be... Continue Reading →
When you think of Texas, what comes to mind? Cowboys, rattlesnakes, oil. And ice. Okay maybe not so much ice. But we actually had a lot of ice this past week, a rare thing. So it was kind of a big deal. Officials announced that people shouldn't drive unless they absolutely had to. The result:... Continue Reading →
At the turn of the year, winter visited our part of Texas with four days of sub-freezing temperatures and a nice touch of ice. So to enjoy the weather and avoid cabin fever, I bundled up and took my phone, I mean camera, out for frigid photography! It was so cold, especially in the wind,... Continue Reading →
Recently I was bit by the shutterbug again! Being outside and collecting pecans, the vivid fall colors of the leaves caught my eyes. So I tried taking some photos to capture their beauty. I’m not saying I succeeded, but I enjoyed it none the less. When I thought about sharing my pictures of late, I... Continue Reading →
Shutterbug - an amateur photographer, especially one who is greatly devoted to the hobby; a photographer, esp. an enthusiastic amateur. I think this definition from Dictionary.com is apt. I can't call myself a photographer (sounds too much like a pro photog) without being more specific. Amateur, devoted, hobbyist, enthusiast...I think they more or less have the right focal...
