It has been lovely to see more people sending in their photos and I really enjoy seeing what everyone sends. I hope you are still enjoying it as well.

Our next theme is in two weeks and it is reflections. I’m already starting to get some wonderful image and great interpretations of the theme. I need to start looking for my own image.

I had all these plans to write a post for you today, but I don’t know, the time just disappeared, but it does give me a chance to redo some older posts. It is good to repost some knowing that what was said is still really relevant today. Today I thought we could take another at a post I wrote in response to people thinking that my camera does all the work. I hope you enjoy seeing it again.

Have you ever been out taking photos and someone has looked at your camera and said, “wow, that’s a great camera, it must take great photos”? I’ve had it said to me many times.  Yeah, I do have a great camera, but is that camera going to take great photos for everyone? There is an assumption by many people that it won’t matter what I do, I will get fantastic photos, like it has nothing to do with me.

There isn’t a lot to report this week. I’ve spent most of it trying to get back into my writing. I have admit I took quite a big of time off over Christmas. I have some articles to get done and well, what can I say, they are happening slowly. I’m just trying to write, anything, just get something down.

It has been an interesting week for me on Instagram. I have been putting up images, I think, that all fit together. It has been good and I have really enjoyed what I’ve been taking. I hope you like them as well.

UFD: Reposting Critiquing

Time keeps going to quickly and it seems I don’t have enough time to write much at the moment, but I thought it would be good to do a repost of an older post from the old blog. Critiquing is just an important way of learning and I think it will be good to show it again.


This is a topic I’ve been thinking about doing for a while.  I’ve also heard other people complaining about it, so I thought I should address it and this forum seemed like the perfect place to do it. I am going to do it in two parts, asking for your images to be critiqued, then critiquing other peoples images when not invited to do so.

My first post like this for the year and while I don’t have a lot to say, I want to get back into the habit of blogging. So this won’t be a long post.


I’m sure many of you have noticed that I now have a new theme on my website. There are still problems with it, but I haven’t really had the time yet to sit down and really work it all out. I am hoping that things will start to calm down soon and get back to normal.

Here we go again, coming up close to our third year anniversary, well not close, but it will be here before we know it.

New theme means new gallery and I have tried to find a theme that has a gallery the way that many liked previously. I know this self hosting has been a bit of a pain, but I hope you like that you can now comment on individual photos in the gallery.
