snap! snap! snap! a few snaps bring a few laughs.

show me sexy!  show me fierce!  give me serious!  give me sweet!  snap…snap…snap…

nothing but a moment of fun here with a few snaps of my co-worker…tricia.  she is a wild child with a sense of humor like no other I’ve known.  adore this girl.

 

and that fun moment came after my very quick walkabout for today.  yes still taking walk breaks during work, since i no longer smoke!  taking pictures of whatever might catch my eye.  im random.  my photos are random.  life is random.

enjoy.

thanks for stopping by!  don’t forget to check out my other blogs.  MY.BLIND.WORLD.  is a blog i just started.  check it out, its fun! and my other blog TrashieART is about upcycle art.  it shows art that i make out of trash, or things that i would ordinarily throw away.  another fun blog.

till next time..

sprinkle me water and sunshine…

and watch what may grow.  water is one of my favorite things to photograph.  falling water.  still water.  rough  water.  water.  water.  water.  it’s beautiful.

yesterdays walkabout was very short, sweet, and not super eventful.  but, i did snap a few photos cause…well…that’s what i do.  and i found some sprinklers sprayin’.  oh yeah!

enjoy…

watch where you dump.

the search for a picture

finding a good moment or image to capture does not have to be a struggle.  it’s all in the way you choose to see the world.  find something you initially view as ordinary, and look at it from a different angle.  perhaps from an ants view.  or a bird’s eye view.  perhaps you put your eye above and look down.  when you are walking around, look up and explore what lies above you.  there is so much beauty around us that we can so easily miss.  don’t take the expected photo.  try a different approach.  soon you will begin to observe the world and all it has to offer in a different way.  things you never would look twice at may become beautiful in your eyes.  you’ll find art in places you never thought art could exist.  at least that has been my experience in the last few years since taking up photography.

give it a try.

here are the things i saw on todays walkabout.  same neighborhood as always, different views of the things around.  there is always a new picture if you look from a different angle.

rather then smoke, i go on walkabouts.

yes yes i am in the midst of quitting smoking, again.  i am about 1.5 months in and it feels great.  since smoking became such a routine excuse for me to go outside many times throughout the day, i had to find something else to bring me outdoors.  walkabouts.  walkabouts now replace my cigarette “breaks.” sometimes my camera is attached to me on these mini excursions.  on those days, i challenge myself to find something new to photograph around the neighborhood of my office.

below are photos from todays two walkabouts.  random photos of things i walked by. enjoy.  and remember, you can find a picture in anything your eyes can see.

just snap it!
