On September 1st, I fly to Seattle to meet up with my best friend and mentor, Cliff Worsham . From there, we plan to head over to Wyoming, my favorite place to photograph in the United States so far, and then head down to New Mexico to check out Chaco Canyon, which he has been telling me so much about. I also hope to get my hands on the Canon 7D he recently acquired, along with a couple of ‘L series’ lenses. We’ll have 12 days to trot around the mid-west before returning back here in Louisiana. As great as the photographic opportunities are, half the fun is the road trip itself!
RedBubble.com turns three and I’ve been a member from almost day 1. That’s when my best friend, Cliff Worsham, gave me my 1st SLR and began to take the art seriously. I fell in love with it immediately and I have learned so much, especially from the works of others on this magnificent site. There are so many excellent artists here and I kind of feel as though I don’t belong here sometimes. Yet, I still get wonderful comments and some ; which really helps the most.
Thanks to the people that make this wonderful site possible and I will continue to promote it to the best of my ability.
I hope my next three years will continue to bring me wisdom and the creativity to earn my place among my peers from around the globe here at RedBubble.com
I seem to be at a point where I have no inspiration. Maybe my unrelenting depression? Maybe the season? I hate the winter so. Perhaps I don’t see the forest for the trees. Maybe it’s a mid-life crisis? At 41? Is there some rule as to when you’re suppose to have one?
I don’t live in what I would call the most scenic part of the world but I know there is a lot to be seen that I can’t seem to find anymore. Northeast Louisiana. The Bayou State. Cypress trees adorned with Spanish moss, endless wildlife, antebellum homes and more. But when you see it every day, it’s hard to REALLY see it sometimes.
That’s all I have to say for now. I don’t expect anyone to read this, I just felt I had to write it down and put it out there.
I’m as excited as a kid in a candy store each time I get a photograph featured in a group. It tells me I’ve finally done something worthy enough to be seen by all that visit or are members of that particular group. Thank you so much for giving the gift of incentive, which is priceless. New Orleans Gulls in Mist has been featured at http://www.redbubble.com/groups/piers-and-jetties
I don’t take these lightly. It means so much to me to have a piece of work featured and I would also like to thank everyone that takes the time to look and especially make a comment, no matter how small you may think it is, it means the world to me!
I’m so excited! My best friend and I are going on another photo tour of the Mid-West to hit some of the spots we missed on our last tour due to snow and ice conditions. My main objective this time is the Tetons and Yellowstone Park. As I’m very enthusiastic about wildlife photography, I’m hoping to get some photos of bears (from a distance, of course – at least a distance that 300mm lens will provide). I’m also going to focus a lot of landscape pictures to HDR processing. I will be lleaving on Sunday, September 28, 2008 and fly into Seattle to meet up with Cliff and from there we will lay down a game plan and hit the wide open road for adventure and hopefully some nice photographs. This will be another 2 week journey ending back in our home town of West Monro…
