I have no aspirations to become a professional photographer who sells my photos. I see the photographs on blogs and on websites and they are way beyond anything I can aspire to. What I love about taking photos is the mixing of the photos with writing and now, I’ve discovered it’s fun to mix with poetry.
Photos inspire my writing. And writing inspires me to seek out photos to go with what I’ve written. And both the writing and photos motivate me to do something memorable every day — something photo worthy. And this makes my life richer and mucho funner. Smiles abound.
I wish I could take a photo of Maery floating on a cloud to capture what I’m trying to say. Here are a few samples from my first photos taken, just using the automatic settings. I didn’t adjust anything on the photos below, besides their size, except for the two with Java so you could see her eyes, which disappear in her black fur. (I do a lot of light and color adjustment on photos taken with my other camera.) You’ll see that we got a little dusting of snow last night.
