Managed to finish my first blog for Birds and Blooms. Had to work with one of the editors closely to get to know the program. And the original item I had written, which I love very much needed to be pared down.....after all, I wasn't writing a story, I was highlighting an anecdote.
Kind of like life: sometimes we are very dramatic and we feel that the whole world needs to hear our version of life, in minute detail. In this case, paring out the fluff parts worked. I have definately learned some focusing lessons. But......
Improved living? Sure, buying that camera was about the best personal move I have made in a long time, and I am really enjoying the learning part. I am sure if I hadn't had that ability to take great pictures I wouldn't have the nerve to speak up to Birds and Blooms when the invitation showed up. Found some terrific websites with wonderful information. This blog is awesome. Take some time if you want to check it out.
And now to show off some of my pics:
These are all just for fun, haven't done any editing yet. But it was great trying to get the shots.
