my journey to become a better photographer – updated weekly


Trial gardens…

So the other day I was driving around Fort Collins looking for an interesting place to complete this week’s photo assignment.  I drove past the CSU trail gardens where household plants of the future are tested to see how they grow in our climate.  I thought -easy- how hard could this be.  I was wrong.  Photographing flowers is much more difficult than I thought.  Something that looks beautiful in real-life is not necessarily interesting in a photograph. Not to mention all the squatting made me sore for two days.

Here is what I came up with.  Thoughts?

County Road 7…

There is a county road that runs along our neighborhood.  The road is old and it’s unexpected to see such authenticity and untamed growth so close to a new development.  It’s a great reminder that aesthetic is everywhere, even just down the road.

Hello, Interweb. It’s me, Arthur

I did it.  I took the plunge and started my own blog.  It’s not much, but I hope it will become the central place for me to share my photos, thoughts, and life experiences with the outside world. I don’t know how long it will last or how often I will update, however, I do  know it will be a lot of fun.  I hope you will join me.
