I have never been the kind of person with a huge stockpile of vacation photos. I almost always forgot my camera, and even when I remembered to bring it along, I’d leave it in my pocket on most trips. Even my son’s first year of life is mostly documented on my cell phone. Don’t judge.
But then I started this blog. And I was forced to take pictures of things I was doing, or places I went. And let me tell you, they were some pretty horrible pictures. But they’ve slowly started to improve. And I find myself looking at my life experiences in a whole new way.
I don’t claim to be a photographer. I’m just a person who has a little camera, and likes taking pictures. Luckily, we live in an age where online photo editing sites make it easy to take my ho-hum pictures and turn them into something a little more appealing. I have really been getting into pixlr, and editing lots of my random vacation shots. I’ve also enjoyed trying to look at the world at new angles. You never know how you can transform something by moving left, or right, or in some cases turning it upside down.
Today I thought I’d share a few of the pictures I enjoyed playing with, and a couple that I think are pretty neat without any fancy fidgeting. I’m still learning a lot about the process, so don’t expect expert stuff here And in the end, I just like what I like. I like making things that are beautiful to me. I hope you enjoy them too!
I hope you enjoyed my little photo display. As I get better I’ll try to share more.
