My last post was September of 2018. I promised I would not overdo it with posts, clearly I have kept that promise! I admit one reason I have not done anything with this website is because I am my worse critic. If my photos are not gallery worthy then I feel they are not worth sharing. After spending the last month organizing and redoing many of my pictures I have come to the conclusion I am wasting my time if I can't share them with anyone. Today I am going to post a couple of shots I took 10 years ago when my wife when we stayed in Sedona a few nights. I am starting with these shots because I discovered these pictures in a portable hard drive I have not touched in years.
I have been retired a few years and kept wanting to organize my photos but could never get started, probably because I felt it was an overwhelming project. I was having a tough time figuring out how to categorize my pictures. If you go to my Photo Galleries page you will see the categories I came up with, the photos above are in the Mountains and Valleys category - click the button to go to the gallery.
As my author mini bio states I love to travel, I love photography, and I love to write. This website allows me to do all three with a purpose. My objective is to provide content that may brighten up your day a bit while at the very least provide some interesting and/or useful information. Many of my blog posts will be about trips I have been on years ago, so narrative may be limited and slightly inaccurate due to a sketchy memory. Many blogs will be a series of posts about one trip or one destination I have visited many times, such as my trips to Hawaii and Colorado. The slide show below will give you a hint about the places I will write about in future posts.
I will most likely include articles about photography, such as how to shoot sports or how to figure out what camera to buy. I subscribe to the "how the spirit moves me" philosophy of writing which means I will cover a variety of topics related to creation, which could include many forms of art and music. In order to keep this website interesting and entertaining I will try and keep my blogs short (this will be a challenge for me) and I will post no more than one post per week with a minimum goal of posting at least once a month. I will use social media to inform many of new posts. Since many do not use social media or do not use it often, I am in the process of creating an email list. If you have the slightest interest in my future blogs I encourage you to go to the contact page and subscribe to my emails. I promise you will not be barraged with emails, it is simply an effective way of informing you when there is a new post.
I confess for me creating this website is a great excuse to share the many photos I have taken over the years. I am going to try very hard to keep my sharing from being boring by providing some useful narrative. Your feedback will be greatly appreciated!
