Different Perspectives

I completely missed an assignment in the Find Your Eye Journey of Inspiration. I was so excited to get back downtown to finish my camaraless photowalk with a camera, that I forgot to take multiple pictures of one object. So today I took the flowers my dad gave my mom the other day for her …

Photography is Art

Just today at lunch I was talking to my son if I went pro as a photographer, what should I call my business. We continued this conversation at home and I got on the computer to check the status of some of them. The good ones were taken. I am still at Lili’s View. I …
