Friday Photo – Looking for a Shot

You never know where or how you will find the right spot to capture that one photograph. Maybe it is like golf. For most mid to high handicappers we may hit more poor shots than good ones. But, when we strike the ball just right and the result is more than what we normally expect we commit to another round. Not necessarily that same day. But, those are the shots we hold on to that keep us playing that silly game.

I envision photography in much the same way. We scour others’ work and wonder will we ever capture something so grand. We will know it when we see it. And then we will hope that once we have actuated the shutter what we thought we saw is what we have captured.

Friday Photo . . . Riding the Wind

You know it is nearing Spring in Oklahoma when the wind blows. Today it is kicking up quite a stir. I am not sure if it is too windy for the folks who wind surf and kite sail out at Lake Hefner. But, if it is not, then sneak out and catch the show.
