Jeanne got home last night around 5:00 p.m. She had gone to her Mom’s early Saturday morning. Her Mother is doing much better now and is actually back in her own home. It was so good to have Jeanne home again. 🙂
By the way I meant to thank those wonderful friends who expressed concern for my well-being since I had not posted on this blog for several days last week. There was nothing wrong, just had a lot going on and a lack of new images. I really appreciate the concern though.
I have harvest images for you today. I captured these on Saturday after finishing my project for the city. I probably drove over a hundred miles on some pretty (“back”) back roads looking for harvest images.
This weekend I finished a 7 hour course on portrait photography and lighting. It is my favorite style of photography but I rarely get the opportunity to practice or do it. When I ask folks if they would like their portrait made most will say no and since I am not yet into selling my work I cannot afford to pay people to pose for me.
So as I was reflecting on my current style of photography I decided I am a road photographer. By that I mean I drive around a lot and when something catches my eye I get out and photograph it. Some times that is good but a lot of the times the lighting is not right nor other conditions so I don’t have a high keeper rate.
I would really like to get into head shots because I love to do that type of photography and I believe there is a need for quality portraits. I mean if you look at Linked-in some of the images people use for their avatar, well they leave something to be desired. 🙂
Okay, I’m pretty much just rambling now so I’ll thank you for stopping by the blog. I hope you enjoy your day and be careful.
Good to have the blog back.
The Quad City Times has a puzzle that I do almost daily called a “Cryptoquote” where you have to figure out which letter stands for which real letter. In yesterday’s paper, the puzzle solved was this quote:
“I really believe there are things which nobody would see if I didn’t photograph them.” by Diane Arbus
I thought of you and your perspectives on the world and think that she is right!
Take care. Glad to hear that Jeanne’s mom is doing so much better.
