A Journey of Photographic Vision

I’m reading this book right now called “Within the Frame: The Journey of Photographic Vision ” – it is absolutely fabulous. “There are so many how to books, but not many why to books.” A lot of the concepts in this book have sort of slapped me in the face by how obvious they should have been, but weren’t. I can’t wait to go on my next shoot after finishing it.

foggy mornings

Being awake before 10am is unreasonable. My cats, however, are up at 4am. I feel bad for locking them out of the bedroom but what else can I do? They sound like a full fledged stampede on these old wood floors. Mornings would be worth the effort if I could make use of the light with my camera. The past two mornings have been beautifully foggy along the river, but I only have the time to take iphone snapshots while I’m stopped at redlights.

pianissimo

I can’t believe I haven’t updated since before Christmas. It really doesn’t seem like that long but it never really does. The good news for photo-mongers is that I now have a proper camera again, no more shoddy iPhone shots.

The bad news is that the company I work for seems to be falling apart. Not that I particularly like corporate life, it would just be nice if something would sit still long enough for me to get situated. Plus it’s really close to home. Five minute commutes are worth exchanging a lot of things for.

I woke up this morning feeling closer to God, though. I think He’s telling me to be a little more satisfied and appreciative of the things and opportunities that I have. A peaceful heart can take us a long way.

Speaking of peace…I have some things to say about that, but it’s time to get ready for work.

I should probably buy proper curtains.

Photos: Sailboats in Newport, RI

We were in Newport, RI this past week. The visit was for an unfortunate reason, but the area is just beautiful. Next time, I’m taking a real camera and plenty of time. These were taken just after a late lunch at The Castle Hill Inn, overlooking the bay.

The town isn’t run-down, I just looked for old things that made for interesting photographs. Though small, it was a great place to grow up – good people and a simple life. My feet stay on the ground even when my head is in the clouds thanks to a good ole’ southern upbringing.

Yup, this gal is made of fried okra and cornbread.

Main St Liquor

Makes me think “Saint” instead of street. The name would be more interesing that way.
