Today's
Key West Lighthouse - Key West, Florida
New Photo
Total: 225

   Sorry for the delay in updates. Thanks to Continental Airlines, (who broke my Olympus) I've been without a good camera for a while. Yes, I've gotten two new cameras now, but I'm still in the "getting to know them" phase and still a bit frustrated with some of the results. Please bear with me as I begin shooting & posting again using a Nikon D5000 and a compact Olympus.

    At first I never photographed flowers. I thought it was "sissy" to have them in my collection. However, it only took a few "experimental" shots to realize that floral photography is actually now one of my favorite subjects. The vivid colors and the amount of detail that explodes in front of your eyes is simply a "rush" when you nail that perfect shot.

    Some have called me a "postcard photographer". I guess if you love to travel to famous places and landmarks and try to get the best photo possible, (considering time of day and weather), that would be me. Sometimes I get so wrapped up in shooting a shot, that I will stand there, camera focused and wait. Wait for all those passerby's to get out of my way or behind a tree where they won't show up in the print.

   Sometimes I get the chance to act like an artist and find that special chance to capture an item or place that's just a bit different or unique. It's not a scenery or a portrait, nor is it a flower or animal. In fact it's probably just fun or exciting with no special meaning to anyone but me. But it'll probably be colorful and probably be stimulating, but of course it may just be a moment in time, that will be forever be frozen in my memory.

    I really don't like photographing people. (most of the time) They're too self-conscious. They either give a real muggy look or the "saddest excuse" for a smile that you can imagine. I like the results of the non posed photos, even if they are not smiling. I like the emotions that people experience and catching those emotions are what make excellent "portrait" photos.
Wildlife / Animals

    Wildlife and Animals are almost just as exciting as Floral and Flowers when it comes to color and details. However, there are a few differences. Animals move more than flowers, so catching them in the perfect pose is sometimes a bit more challenging; but more rewarding. The other reason for shooting animals, if the animal is in a cute pose, all the girls just coo and awe and make a big fuss over it.
Black and Whites

    This will probably be my smallest category. When I'm shooting the photographs, I don't normally even think about taking it in black and white because I'm seeing the image in living color. However, once in a while I'll be reviewing my photos and see a photo that seems to set a somber or mysterious mood. Then I'll gray scale it and sometimes I'm pleasantly surprised how well they look.
Bird Feeder Project

    During the winter, I just can't get quite as motivated to shoot pictures as much as in the other seasons. Probably due to the fact that there isn't the blue skies, green grasses, crystal clear waters or the rainbows of flowers growing around every corner. So, lets watch the "bird feeders" for activity and color. I've never done anything like this before and it should bring a few nice bird photos and probably a few surprises.

    This section is dedicated to those moments where the "good camera" is at home or the batteries are dead. It's dedicated to those moments most of us experience everyday and just want a way to remember them. Most are not posed, most are not focused correctly and most won't have any meaning to anyone but me. But I like to share, and I hope you enjoy them and maybe send / text me a few of your favorite cellphone shots.

    There will be a lot of stories around taking photos. Stories of adventures traveled, the people who I've met and maybe a few about lost equipment or dead batteries. Maybe later on I'll compare camera's or make a parody of a "photo tourist". Who knows, but it should be fun.
