Your photography can be your outlet to relieve stress. Let it be your sanctuary, where you can forget your troubles and become absorded in the beauty around you.

Say Out

Say "out" to every negative thought that comes into your mind. No person, place or thing has any power over you, for you are the only thinker in your mind. You create your own reality and everyone in it. - Louise L. Hay

Do you know what you want to be when you "grow up"? The sooner you make those decisions, set your goals and chart your course, the more successful you'll be in your endeavors. Best of luck!

When shooting landscapes try to find an interesting subject for the foreground. It helps to lead the viewer into the picture and creates a more interesting photogrpah.
Rubber Ducky, you're the one. You make bathtime lots of fun. Rubber Ducky, I'm so in love with you. LOL!

The more I learn, the more I know how much I don't know. I do know that these guys are the coolest grandsons ever, though. This picture is from our trip to Yellowstone in May. Great time! Check out my new pics of the day, & other pictures, on my website. You probably know the drill but, if not, just click on the little fox. Enjoy!

This is one of my modified photos. I took the picture of the flower and combined it with a background that I'd photographed previously. I used Overlay and then reduced the opacity to get the effect I wanted. I then applied a filter to the photo to get a little more texture. Hope you like it!

Are you a glass half-full or a glass half-emplty person? It makes a difference in how happy you are. Glass half-full people tend to have a better outlook on life which improves their state of well-being. So, when you look at that glass, see the best in it. Have a great and half-full day!

Each and every day we all have an opportunity to begin anew. We don't have to wait for the new year, because we can start over on any day. So remember, if you're not satisfied with your life, figure out what you want to change and start over tomorrow. It's never to late to change.

Have a great night and wake up refreshed and ready to go.
