Photography 101: Bliss


Perfect happiness, great joy

My daughter


Come join the Happiness


Lest Her Gaze Befall You.

Journey with caution weary traveler.

For it is All Hallows Eve and a witch is about.

 Stay to the road and avoid the woods, being ever mindful of the sun. When the shadows lengthen as dusk draws near, it is wise to seek shelter for the evening.

The night belongs to her.

Should you find yourself on the road after dark, be ever vigilant, moving in silence, lest her gaze befall you.


Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot, Two Ways.

The best time to compose a landscape photograph vertically…

…is immediately after your horizontal composition of course.

Since this weeks challenge is inspired by my latest article for the WordPress Photography 101 series, this is definitely one I couldn’t miss.

So here are a few of my landscape images. Same place, same day, shot both horizontally and vertically.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Love

 Instantaneous, Complete, Unconditional.

My Love


With a love like no other, she owns my heart.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful

My beautiful blue eyed daughter Nicole in her leopard print winter coat. Sitting in a tree smiling down at me.

What have I got to be thankful for? Where do I start?

My wonderful wife, who supports me in every way, and is extremely supportive of my efforts to further my photography. Who never, okay, mostly never, complains when I disappear for days on end in pursuit of my next photograph. She truly is my better half.

My beautiful, unbelievably intelligent daughter (above). Nothing gives me greater pleasure than the sparkle in her eyes, and there is no better sound in the world than the sound of her laughter. She is the light of my life.

My camera. My camera has brought me to amazing places, and introduced to some amazing and talented people. It has enabled me to see the natural world around me as never before.

And finally, you, my fans and followers. You all keep me inspired to create new, and better images, to become a better photographer. For all your support I thank you.
