It is all about learning to let go.
A few weeks ago, we had a Flickr meetup here in Houston. I was taking what I call my “point & shoot” photos, where I aim my camera and hope I am getting the shot I want. (When there is room on the memory card, it is fun to play!) Some of the other Flickr’ers were talking about my “technique” and the free photography of it all. I just wanted to share what can happen when you let go.
Sometimes the pictures suck. Sometimes, you end up with this. In the end, it is definitely worth it.
Shot “from the hip” at the Texas Ren Fest, a few weeks after the Flickr gathering. (From the hip and my point & shoot are the same thing with different names. This one was shot from about hip height though, so … well, it fits.)
Julia asked in my comments yesterday if I was going to put together a calendar this year. I’ve said for at least three years now that I was going to do it, and you know what? I think this is going to finally be the year. I’m thinking of doing a few calendars actually – flowers, flowers & butterflies, London, Paris, Houston, and a nature shots calendar. Probably in that order. I’ll keep you posted on the details, as soon as I figure out if I’m using Qoop, Lulu or Cafepress to make them. Anyone have experience with any of those? Care to share feedback?
