For The Love Of Nature

Nature is something I always enjoy making photographs of. I feel some of my best work is represented in this category. The subtle form of a rose petal, the intricate design of a simple palm frond, the magical buzz of a bumble bee... All of the subject matter in nature will always be there for the moment of capture. When I need to slip away from reality for awhile and get some photo therapy, I find myself capturing nature most of the time. It is one of those subjects that is inviting as well as ever changing. Love your surroundings. I do.

Shutter Fun

I love experimental photography. Zooming and shutter dragging can be quite phenomenal under the right conditions. Using a tripod becomes unnecessary at a certain point. Go with the flow and energize your photos with streaming light waves and mezmorizing design. It keeps me in a trance which cannot be explained. Light has a way of calling my innermost primitive self. Use the light to your advantage. The surprises are endless. The gifts are appreciated as well. |||JDB|||02/24/2011|||

It Feels Good To Be A Photographer

Being a photographer has never felt so good. To see is a gift... One I would never want to lose. A single photograph can be worth 1000 words. Our photos can be bold, fun, witty, intellectual, intriguing, experimental, fashionable, therapeutic, documenting, memorable, passionate, scientific, natural, magical, mystical, faked(set up), realistic, historical, vibrant, plain, saturated with color, black&white, newsworthy, boring(we hope not), striking, timed perfectly, blurred beyond belief, rich, poor, monumental, magnificent, etc...

Here are a few shots which I have taken in the last 6 months.
I wonder if you will have any words about them. If you do I'd love to hear them.
Drop a comment or visit me on Facebook. I'd love to share stories or get new ideas.

"Life is a Gamble"

"Sunset Over 17th"

"Forever Young"

"The Light"

"Fellow Female Photog"

"How Many Monkeys?"

"The Look"

"A Real Wiseguy"
So?????? Did you come up with any words of your own?
When I make photos I try to give them words of their own.
Can you tell? 

I can't wait to see what I'll be shooting next.
I'll be posting something real soon.
Just need to free up some time.
Thanks for viewing.
