Perspective

Collecting









































Getting excited about a photo trip I will be taking with a good friend.  We're heading over to the Eastern Sierra for 4 days to photograph.  Probably hit Bodie and Mono Lake.  Hoping for a bit of interesting clouds.  I might just shoot some stuff for a Platinum Printing Class I'm taking in May.  But mostly looking forward to getting away and holding my camera in my hands.

Throw back Thursday

Lately I've been thinking a lot about The Girl.  I miss her terribly.

They talk to me.  What's your favorite flower?

Professional Development

The two courses I took over the weekend were intended to help me in my professional development, but ended up really helping me in my personal development even more.  I walked away with more insight into my self which I know will help me use the skills that the instructor gave me.  I feel for me that learning keeps me stimulated.  So people get out there!  Learn!  Read!  Take classes you want for enjoyment! It's a lot of fun!  
Look to the sky! Don't bury head!

Throw back Thursday

I'm finding "Throw back Thursdays" everywhere now a days.  Or #tbt for short.  So because I feel the deep need to be a part of things here's my #tbt for this week.
The Family Portrait


This was our attempt at a family picture.  The Girl as you can see was not cooperating.  Gosh what year was this?

Dreaming

I've been daydreaming again of Paris and the French countryside.  I had the trip of a life time last September and I just can't stop thinking about it.

Refresher Course

I signed up for a course thru our local community college called "Getting more from your digital camera"  I've been feeling a bit unsure of my self lately.  I had not picked up my camera in 2 years and just wasn't feeling confident about knowing all I needed to know.  Well...guess what?!  I know quite a lot!  I left class feeling pretty good about it all.  Which was basically everything she covered.  I even had other people asking me how to do things with their cameras.  Some times you just need to reaffirm things.

So on that note
