going downtown

This was taken while i was heading home. I stopped at a traffic light and thought this angle was good. I have to admit I did crop it a bit to clean up some distractions but I think it works.

Christmas Frog

The little guy was just outside my front door...heck i almost flattened him coming back in the house. Since he really didnt care to move I figured I could get a few shots of him.

Long time coming...

Been busy since my last post. Between work, family and my general ADHD it has been difficult to even think about posting something.

Any way here are some pics I've done over the last month or two.

I'm trying to figure out some sort of gallery concept using blogger. Not too far on that yet...

R.I.P. Pretty Dog

This was taken awhile ago but seems fitting. We lost this part of our family early last week. She had a long life and brought much love during her time with us. We will miss you Pretty Dog.

Castillo de San Marcos

This was taken midday...thats faiirly obvious. I had to crop and bring together with some adjustments. I've found that I lean toward square format or close to square format. Not sure why, perhaps related to the way i think...not sure. Some just look better that way, orderly.

Homecoming 2009

These were taken at a nearby country club. We had actually had someone come by and complain that we were there. I could see complaining if we were in the way or disrupting in someway. However, we were no where near anyone and still had complaints. Keep in mind that half that a few of the kids live in the neighborhood where the country club resides and have a right to be there...with guests. It's funny how some people are...we were simply taking photos prior to our children going to the dance.

Anyway, enough complaining. These were really my first attempts at using flash in outdoor portraits.

My first post...

I created this blog for two reasons. The first is I want a place to share my images. The second is I'm using this as a reminder to get better with every post.

Will that happen...probably not on every post but it will allow me to compare good to bad and have input as well.

Lets see if it works...
