TWOI: 1/26/18

Once more, we find ourselves at Friday!  I keep experimenting with new things, and I hope you like it.  Please let me know in the comments what you think!

This first one is an image from our trip to Hawaii a couple years back.  The contrast of colors here really caught my eye, and this is pretty true to how I actually saw the sky as we were lazing under a tree on a tropical beach… sure sounds more appealing than the constant rain we’re facing now!

A Photographer – Even When I Shouldn’t Be

I am an incurable photographer.  Even when not behind a camera, I see the world through a camera lens.  Ooh, the reflections there are really cool!  If I align myself just so, that would make for a really interesting perspective..  I love the colors there!

So put me in a situation where I wouldn’t typically think to take pictures.. like a mobile app.   Continue reading
