Sometimes one need not go to exotic destinations to find a photographic subject. I pass this field every day on my walk. It is right across the street from my apartment. The other day, I decided to put the D700 on the tripod and take a few shots and play with the depth of field. I spent only short time there as it was evening, rather warm, the insects were hungry and I was what was on the menu. 🙂

Nope. Not a slip up in grammar. I am doing well, but on this past Sunday, I was doing good. 🙂 I was volunteering at Chapman’s Dachshund Rescue in York, SC about 30 minutes or so from my home. How I got there. As you may know, I attend The Peaceful Dragon, where I practice Tai Chi. Well, my Sifu, Eric Sbarge and his wife Debra are, shall we say, big fans of Dachsunds. As a matter of fact, when…

Try as I might, I tend to slow down when a camera is in my hand. This morning, I didn’t do my usual walk. I was feeling a bit lazy, honestly, so I postponed it until this evening. Today was rather hot, it was still close to 90 degrees at 5:00, so I decided to wait until the sun was a bit lower in the sky.

He has a very distinctive voice that can be heard from a few blocks away. Click here for more…

Saturday Morning Gratitude is like a flashlight, it lights up what is already there. You don’t necessarily have anything more or different, but suddenly you can actually see what is. And because you can see, you no longer take it for granted. M.J. Ryan – Attitudes of Gratitude Quite frankly, there are those moments when I am simply ‘there’, filled with gratitude. This was the scene, Saturday morning, just off of the coast of West Palm Beach, FL. Taken from…

This past weekend I was in West Palm Beach, FL as well as Freeport, Grand Bahamas. I was on my first cruise ever. I took with me, one camera, my P-510. If I have not said it before, I love this camera! 🙂 Sure, it has its limitations, but if you learn to be patient with it, you will be rewarded. When Deb and I returned from our cruise, we went to the zoo the next day. I was toting…
