Random Photography.

One of the things that makes me happiest, is random photography.  I really want to be one of those people who can just - snap a picture of a person, and have it be flawless.   The best way I SEE for that, is to keep practicing.

I want my photos, to speak to people.  To convey the feelings they gave me, as I was taking them.  Does that make sense?

I have a fascination with the sky, cemeteries, trees, animals, small children (wait, that sounded wrong), architecture ... Life.  Really.   I love the way photographs can convey just a small moment in time, that you were lucky enough to be present for.   A bald eagle perched on a tree top, a break in the clouds, a full face smile and belly laugh of a toddler, an infant just entering the toddling stages, a secret moment between two people, the love of a husband and wife ... you know those moments?

I know I've said it before, my camera, is an extension of my arm.  You just never know when something might strike you as photo-graphical (is that even a word?) - you need to be ready.

Attached are a few of my favorite recent captures.   Hope you enjoy looking at them, as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Do You See What I See?  One of our trees, next to the driveway, has a haunting appearance to it.
