Shoot where you are.

I started getting into photography in the mid ‘90s when I took a B&W course in college. Yes, those were back in the film days when post processing took hours in a dark room for a hand full of photographs. I didn’t really go head over heels until 2001 when I was able to get a decent camera (Nikon F100). My wife and I were living in East TN near the Great Smoky Mountains. After just a few trips to the ‘Smokies’ I fell in love with the environment and just couldn’t wait for the next sunrise trip. For years this was my location of choice. Well, life has a way of changing and we now live in South Florida (just south of Miami). To be honest… I lost some of that love of photography because the majestic landscapes were gone. No rushing streams or waterfalls to photograph. Just birds and some gators… or so I thought. My wife kept on me saying photograph where you are because you will miss it if we leave here. So, feeling grumpy I took my camera out to some local places just to look for things/places to photograph. I wasn’t expecting much. Yes, she was right again. There is so much here to capture, so many things to explore… and I almost missed out.

Photograph where you are and recapture that love you once had.
