Increasing Potency

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….


trying to turn average into awesome

maybe someday this will show up on the wall in a room in the Hampton Inn?


less is still more….
