I found this dragonfly floating in a small creek. As you can see it had a broken wing. It was still alive and struggling to move. I lifted it from the water and placed it in a small bush. Hopefully it dried out and found a way to move on. It was about 6" wingtips across.
What do you do with an ordinary snapshot? Sometimes you come across a setting or subject that you are sure will be a great photograph. You fire off a couple of frames to capture it. You get home, look them over and realize that what the camera saw is not what you saw. What do you do? Is it lost? Look closely, the memory you were looking to capture is still there. Now what are you going to do with it?
This is my near daily photography web log. I got interested in photography in high school and have been taking shots ever since. I am still developing techniques and honing my eye. I tend to gravitate toward macro shots, small subjects and low perspective. Have fun digging through the blog and looking at old posts. You will see that I have worked through different processing, framing and display techniques along the way. It's all in an effort to learn something new. All of these photos were taken with minimal equipment and consumer level cameras. You can do any of this with your camera too. Thanks for stopping by. Leave a comment or ask a question. Let's learn this stuff together.
