Back to Blogging

OK it's time to get back on track. I haven't posted since last November, but I've got quite a few things to share. They'll be coming a piece at a time, and hopefully I can keep up with the posting at least once a week.

Going all the way back to early December, I attended an Outdoor Photographer (magazine) seminar in Raleigh. I attended one in Tampa many years ago and got to learn from one of my favorite adventure photographers, Bill Hatcher, This Seminar included Bob Krist,, an excellent travel photographer who I've been following for many years. By following I mean reading about, not stocking! And David Middleton, who I wasn't familiar with, but fully enjoyed his presentation.

One interesting observation I made while attending both days was that no was making any pictures. Plenty of people brought in their cameras, mostly to have while talking to the vendors/sponsors of the seminar. But as I walked around downtown Raleigh before each day and during lunch, I was the only one pushing the shutter release button. It's not that I created any masterpiece, I just found it odd that out of the 145 participants each day, no one was really interested in practicing photography?

So that will get me though December, more to come soon...

Sorry I need to convert the images to jpegs, still in RAW. Picture coming soon.
