A New Direction

A New Direction

Words have never been a strong point of mine and every attempt to keep some sort of journal or blog has inevitably fell into disuse. After several years of dormancy, I finally found some inspiration in the form of a book I noticed while perusing the computer book section of the local library. A photo a day blog. Next to video games, photography is my favorite hobby and any excuse to get out and shoot more pictures is certainly welcome. As evidenced by my personal gallery, my pictures lean heavily towards nature/wildlife, but this gives me opportunity to experiment with new things. While I intend to post mostly new material shot within a few days of each post, I will also be digging through my archive for older material that never made my gallery. Perhaps for those rainy days, I just don’t feel like going out.

The site will likely be in flux for the next few weeks as I settle on a layout and photo sizes that work with the new direction for this blog.

I had planned to begin posting photos later this week, but I found an image suitable for this moment on my camera just now. So here is photo #1.
