Getting some energy back, I have been trying to do mundane boring stuff to clear the pallet so to speak. Now I can look with a fresh eye and be more critical (as if I weren’t already my worst critic) Here are a few I took to please me. Left cold and winter to find spring and starfish.
I have spent a week on the Gold Coast of Oregon. My niece and I attended a workshop led by Jim Harmer and met photographers from across America. I enjoy these momentary escapes from real life. As a photographer, having money for trips and equipment is only a dream. The picture that sets me for life has yet to be taken. I intend on continuing to pursue that special shot, improving my knowledge and skill in the process.
The sun is trying to shine today, so maybe spring is on its way here. I hope so. Here is a waterfall from last summer when I was in Silver Falls State Park, Oregon
I was in Bozeman yesterday walking on Main street when I saw a sign in front of a business that read WELCOME SPRIN-TER. In parentheses underneath was the explanation. Spring – Winter. That says it all. Although it snowed in Bozeman all day there was no accumilation. The snow came in light flurries. Here is a shot of a much warmer Oregon forest last summer.
