My final tribute to Photo101. Thanks to everyone who took the time to look at my photos and for sharing yours with me. Until we meet again.
Participating in Photo 101 has given me a new perspective on photography. Gone are the days of a non-thinking 'point and shoot' mentality. Going forward, the photos I take will be more thoughtful and deliberate. Although I wasn't able to create a new photo for every assignment, just going through my old photos with a specific theme in mind helped … Continue reading Triumph (Day 20)
For today's assignment, I chose some of my favorite 'doubles'. Enjoy!
I reserve the right for a re-do. I struggled with today's assignment, mainly because I do my assignments after I get off work or in the early evening, and I had little to work with (including imagination). I added a few old photos just because. Let's start with wild and crazy. Last mother's day I received a beautiful hummingbird feeder … Continue reading All About Glass (Day 17)
I love landscapes, although I rarely do justice to the beauty that captivates the natural eye. For this assignment, I chose several of my favorite landscape photographs to showcase, including a few that were used for previous Photo 101 themes.

The Colorado Rockies provide the 'scale' of today's photos. Their massive frame drapes everything around them.

What makes a photograph special is that it captures a single, unobserved moment before it disappears forever. This photograph was taken at Galveston Beach. It was April 20, 2013, late … Continue reading A Moment in Motion(Day 13)
March in Oklahoma can be described as drabby brown and moldy green. Dormant winter plants have barely begun to break the ground. Dead leaves cling to the trees. There isn't much color to be found this time of year, except for the vibrant pink redbud trees that have taken bloom. Finding a slash of color … Continue reading Splash of Color (Day 10)
What lurks in the hidden darkness of the ocean? Things we cannot hear. Things that have no smell. Things that move so quickly that we wonder, is there really something there, or is it just our imagination? All we can do is watch and wait, knowing all the while that by the time we see whatever it is, it could … Continue reading Mystery of the Deep (Day 10)
Before last summer, I had never been to Nebraska. Frankly, I never wanted to go to Nebraska because I pictured it flat and boring with nothing to see. The only reason for visiting Nebraska (in my mind) was to check it off my 'Visit all 50 states' bucket list. As far as I was concerned, … Continue reading Warmth (Day 9)
