Why Do You Photograph Certain Shots?

What is it about a subject or object that causes you to take out your camera capturing that moment for eternity?  Is it the way the light reflects off an object that captivates you?  Perhaps it is the pale hues in the evening sky that draw your attention.  Maybe you notice a unique looking flower or insect that will make an excellent subject for a macro photography capture.  Whatever it is that causes you to take out your camera, is something you feel has untapped potential to become a magnificent moment.

I enjoy capturing the rainbow colored sky as the sun sets.

You need to photograph things that appeal to you, keeping your eyes alert for brief moments of unique beauty.  Nature is constantly presenting perfect opportunities to capture breathtaking beauty.

An amazing display of beauty and color from the sun and light.

When searching for photography opportunities in nature, sometimes you have to alter your perspective to achieve the perfect shot.  Immerse yourself among the grass to find hidden treasures.

Gorgeous mushrooms in a circular shape dwell among blades of grass.
Vibrant colored flowers attract the attention of bees!

Sometimes we take a photograph simply because we are amazed by the simple elegance of nature.  We want to have the picture to savor that exact moment in time, allowing that memory of a place to stay forever pure and uneffected in our minds.  Those are my favorite types of captures!

Colors only Mother Nature could infuse with this degree of vibrancy!

Nature's Brief Beauty

Nature offers us breathtaking moments of beauty that are fleeting yet leave an indelible impression on our minds.  Have you ever admired the elegance emitted from paper thin petals soaking by sunset's receeding light?  The "veins" within the individual petals are enhanced by the brillance of sun's final rays.  The warm glow of the remaining beams of light illuminate the pastel petals producing an eye-catching show of elegance!

Take time to watch the sunset each evening to really marvel at nature's magnificence.  Admire the subtle and sometimes not too subtle colors that emerge in the sky during sunset.  Enjoy watching the sky's sapphire hue slowly deepen and grow rich with multiple shades that form a kaleidoscope of colors within a matter of moments before your eyes!  Watch in sheer amazement as the rays of the sun turn from a golden glow to encompass all the shades of the rainbow in the splayed trajectories as the sun sinks towards the horizon.  See billowing clouds of white become kissed with color and darken to encompass the sultry shades of evening.

Each night without fail, nature creates a magnificent show of beauty for us.  Often we are too busy to enjoy this stunning show, yet nature continually pulls out all the stops to attempt to captivate and astound us.  The colors at nature's disposal can't be reproduced through photos or paintings.  The hues available in nature are meant to be experienced and absorbed on a personal level.  Despite our inabilities to pay attention to the gorgeous, and momentary sparks of beauty surrounding us regularly, nature continues to persist in its day to day shows of extravegant elegance.  Attracting our attention through new color combinations and producing unique and exquisite flowers to stop us in our tracks.  Nature refuses to be ignored! We should stop a moment to take in the majestic sites and shades surrounding us daily.  Nature is continually evolving and we do not want to miss a second of the natural elegance that colors our world!

Why I Keep Going Back to Google +


   With so many options available through social media, one might wonder why i consistently frequent Google+ over the other available social media platforms.  The answer is simple - no fake fronts and genuinely honest, caring individuals who aren't just out to further themselves.  Sure not every individual I add to my circles is this way,  but a majority of this social media platform is comprised of friendly, positive individuals who are looking to connect with other like-minded individuals. 
     You may be asking, "Isn't that what all social media sites are like?"
      Sadly the response is no. While many sites begin with the purest of intentions at their conception, something happens along the way to sidetrack them from seeing this vision through to fruitition.
      The creation of intimate communities created for specific topics allow Google+ (or G+) members to connect with other individuals that share their interests.
      Regular circle shares between members allow individuals to share their posted content with a broader audience, resulting in more content exposure. 
     The key to creating lasting friendships among G+ members is to dive in with both hands.  You need to be active on G+ by plussing posts by other members, providing feedback, and adding content of your own.  This is especially essential when you first join G+.  As you continue to make your way through the "Googlesphere" you will start to find your niche.  People from all over the world use G+, and before you realize it you will have found a large group of like-minded individuals whose personalities mirror your own!  Some wonderful, caring friendships have been created between individuals who may never meet, yet they check in daily with one another to just say hi and show they care.
     I'm not saying that G+ is flawless in its creation, no social media platform is, but it does allow people with similar interest and idealologies to intermingle in one place and is always evolving in attempts to further enhance the user's experience. 
     A circle of friends spanning the globe is what G+ creates.  Friendships, networking, caring individuals? Sign me up for Google+!
