It takes much patience, creativity and desire to regularly blog and to blog well.
I didn't have any of those things for a while, but I have been sitting on it a lot lately
and I think I am ready again.
A few weeks ago I was given a tremendous gift from my parents and it sparked that new fire under
my bum to take on the blogging world, once more.
My parents gifted me a new Nikon d5100.
These days, I know nothing about photography beyond an iPhone.
I used too, but not anymore.
When I was middle and high school I loved photography. I always had a camera in my hand.
I took a class through Ozarks Technical Community College and embraced 35 mm for awhile, until
other hobbies and interests came my way. Most everything I learned has fizzled since then so I am
reading up and asking all of my photographer friends to share little tidbits of knowledge.
I wanted to show you my first round of photos. 59 taken, 10 chosen.
It is really hard to take a good photograph!
I suppose I have hopes that with my new camera, I can accomplish great things.
I hope I learn to take beautiful photos and video.
I hope to take up writing again because I am inspired by what my eyes are seeing through the lens.
I hope that my attention to detail and appreciation for the world grows daily.
Revival of old hobbies can be a wonderful thing. I think.
