With all of this staying home stuff, I’ve had some extra time to start looking through some of my older images. This was taken more than a few years ago (2007) when I was contemplating whether I wanted to venture into digital photography. Yes, I can hardly believe that something that I love now was met with having to be dragged… kicking and screaming into the new age. I so loved my Minolta SRT101 at the time, which by the way I still have keeping company on the shelf. You know just in case I may need again someday. So being cautious about my investment, I bought an inexpensive FinePix A340 just to give it a go. By now, I had almost forgotten about this camera until I pulled up the file information on my computer linked to this image.

This jellyfish was shot on a quick road trip stop at the Atlanta Aquarium. I was greatly surprised by this image that was captured. Just proof that some fun things can happen even when you are first learning and really don’t know what you are doing. That is not to say that I have stopped learning as that will never happen. So keep on shooting and happy exploring, but with camera in hand.

Photography: Travel

 

Field of Dreams, Dyersville, Iowa(1)The hubs recently surprised me with a road trip where I didn’t have a clue where we were going from day to day. We also have in our family sort of a contest to see who can get to all fifty states first. Imagine my surprise when we went here to see where “Build It and They Will Come”!  Plus, Iowa is now one of the three new states we got on this trip. This was a very fun and memorable trip!

Exploring

One of the funnest ways to spend time, is to go Exploring!

Do you dream of going somewhere big? Do you remember the joy of going somewhere new that you have dreamed about? While there are many places I would like to go and dream of going; I often find that time constraints, money, weather, or other obligations keep me from going everywhere on my list.

However; I find just getting in the car and exploring within a tanks drive from my home, takes me to places, people, sights, and yes —smells that are new to me. I love exploring and knowing what is to be found down a certain road, regardless of the season. Maybe I will find a covered bridge, or a new hiking trail, or at least one new to me. Maybe I will find Amish fried pies filled with all different kinds of delicious fillings and have fun talking with the people who made them. The excitement can be felt in the crisp, cool air as the leaves start to turn red and gold. Who knows where I will end, as I just decide to go!  What have you found on some of your explorations?
