Happy Anny to my blog! …5 Years of droppin’ pics on the masses! My posting rate has definitely slowed down. Not because my excitement for photography has waned, but because I don’t necessarily feel the need to share every little camping trip I take or every sunset I catch. Not everything is post-worthy.
I’m becoming more acutely aware of what people share on social media. There’s no filter; no thought about creating quality content….just point your phone at anything you see…and post it up. We’re all turning into Asian Tourists.
I’d like to try keep my blog de-cluttered and clean. So if I only post once a month, hopefully each one packs more of a punch. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still gonna vomit up a ton of ski snapshots every winter….it’s just gonna happen every so often instead of every damn day. I’m aiming for potency. In a house, one picture on a wall carries more weight than 10.
The other day I had a slow rainy morning at home, and I noticed some water drops on my backyard plants. Can anyone please explain why those things are so cool? It sounds goofy, but I love fresh little water drops…make fun of me, but I just do. So I went out there with a ridiculous coffee buzz and started snapping away. What I saw in my camera kept getting better and better. Compositions improved and shots were becoming more abstract. Before I knew it, I had been out there for an hour totally engrossed by staring at this wet plant. Here are the results….
less is still more….
