Follow the rules? Nah-break them when it makes sense

Life is short. Break some rules.

Pop Photo gives 10 Photography Rules to Break in this month’s issue.  The amazing photos in this gallery confirms rules do not need to be followed.  I often forget the basics being too focused on taking the shot while I have the chance.  If it ends up being a good photo, that’s okay!


48 Days

It’s been 48 days since my first blog here at Word Press.  I did not know what to expect.  My sister introduced me to the blogging world and Word Press.  Not disappointed.  I say this not for my own blogging purposes.  This connects me with you.  Bloggers who like my blogs who have great stories!  I really enjoy reading your material and viewing your wonderful and great art of photographs.  They are stories in itself.   Technology brings people together in many ways, near and far.  I started this blog for photo sharing.  Outside my front door are beautiful flowers.  I took some photos today.  It was pretty windy though.  I am not a pro.  I am a photo hobbyist, and I enjoy taking photos.  Here is one for you.

Another Sacramento Rose.

Great Artistry

After seeing this I had to share.  I had no idea how little knowledge I had of Photoshop until viewing this mastery of art.  This is truly amazing.

Coffee lookin’ good

Driving coast to coast there are pockets of long shots.
This one, in the desert …
Coffee looked good right about now.

Dinner at the Delta King featuring Schug Winery

Attended a dinner and wine tasting last night at the Delta King featuring wines by Schug Carneros Estates.   Fabulous, fabulous! A five course meal paired with five wines.  I cannot say enough about the scrumpcious courses.  The wines were wonderful!  To top it off, we had a blast with Keely and Paul seated next to us.  Happy Birthday Paul!

If you have not been, another great way to spend the evening on the Delta King is the Mystery Dinner Theater. We will be sure to visit Schug Carneros Estates in Sonoma.

Fond Memory

On the way to give out much needed hugs.  Passed up this classic.  It reminded me of the days when I was growing up, watching I Love Lucy, the old black and white TV, Mom wearing the apron when cooking, my younger sister helping her bake a cake, my brother with his yoyo, my sister and I dressed alike, the old rotary phone, my Dad watching Combat.  So many fond and priceless memories, long ago, but never forgotten.

One of my favorites

National Geographic

National Geographic magazine is one of my all time favorites.  I travel the world through the stories and beautiful photographs.  Love the collection of wallpapers available.

Got over the fear of complication….

It took reading through the basics of Learning Word Press to realize it’s not that complicated.  My feet are on the ground.  Here I go.
