Happy Groundhog Day! Apparently, Phil saw his shadow, which foretells six more weeks of winter, but the weather has been rather mild in our area, so I’m not so sure. I’m hoping for drier weather, in any case.. for the photography, of course!
This week, there were only six photos on Instagram, and here they are.
This first one is of Chicago’s illustrious Cloud Gate sculpture, fondly referred to as “The Bean.” I had a mild obsession with this beauty when we found ourselves in Chicago for a weekend. You can read all about that discovery and my dance with its photogenic reflections here.
It’s crazy to think it’s November already.. I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween!
This first image was my only true stand-alone this week. It’s actually a somewhat older picture; we didn’t carve pumpkins this year. I do enjoy doing it, but I was just too busy with Kumoricon preparations! I’ll be posting some pictures from that really soon.
I made some more changes this week, and I think I’ve seen some improvements. I even have a new inductee to the 100 Club! I think I’ll eventually get the hang of this game. I like the photos I post, and I’ll keep working to make them more visible so more can see them!
This first one is pretty recent, so I might see some more attention trickle in… and hopefully more than the trickle pictured. I’ve looked at other photos of Shoshone Falls, and it’s a roaring torrent. We caught it during a dry spell, but the area was still beautiful, and it was a pleasant way to end our road trip. If you missed it, be sure to check out the entire adventure here.
This week included some local shots of the spring sakura, some from our adventures in Arches National Park, and another from Yosemite. It wasn’t as active as last week, but I’m still playing around with my hashtags to maximize visibility. Once I can identify some patterns, I’ll be sure to share my findings!
Wow! So this week saw more activity than last week. Folks really love those photos from the road!
I was a bit surprised this first photo from my inaugural backpacking training hike didn’t see more love, but I almost never agree with the masses as to which are my best photos. I’m too connected to them, I suppose, and a lot of the value I see is sentimental and tied to the experience behind the pictures. So how do I share that experience through a photo? Food for thought.
