My Uncle Ben told me the secret to being a good photographer was to take lots and lots of pictures, then only share the best ones. So every day I try to share one great photo. That isn’t as easy as it sounds.
When I travel, I take so many I love, and I want to share them all. This project has taught me to edit and find the one image which really captures the essence of what I am seeing and feeling rather than 20 which become tedious to the viewer.
When I am home, I get caught up in the daily grind. It is sometimes hard to stop and take a few pictures. Knowing I need a picture for the blog forces me to look at the world a little differently. I always stop and think, would that be a good picture?
Taking lessons with Paul D’Andrea, I learned to apply basic techniques, to make great effects happen deliberately. He taught me to bring my point of view into each photos. So this is my point of view.

A few years ago Rebecca made hats for the cats. Little wool hats in Roundpeg colors. While they looked cute, I can say neither cat was really happy about the chance to make a fashion statement. Benny especially despises his. Whenever we put it on him, which by the way...read more

Our older office cat, Clyde has always liked hanging out in the closet. She jumps high on the shelf, looking down on the rest of us and especially Benny. As you can tell from this photo she is none too pleased that he has found a way to make it on the shelf. For his...read more
