Poppy Seed Heads 2

Current Photography Sites of Note (to me, anyway - YMMV)

Here are some photography-related sites I have bookmarked at the moment - they change over time, but these are in the toolbar presently:


Mike Johnson

Kirk Tuck

Jeremy Cowart

Christopher Wahl

Actually, Mike and Kirk don't change - the others might, despite their talents. I think Mike and Kirk have staying power because they write so well.

And here's another picture, just for the hell of it. Depicted is the beautiful Nathalie whom I shall be picturing again tomorrow, all being well:

Honesty is the best policy

Zack Arias sounds a lovely man. Seriously. A lovely man. You can get an idea of what he's like through reading some of the answers to the questions here. I don't really know what to make of his pictures as I feel as if I haven't seen that many of them: quite apart from the fact that the portfolio section of his website is down at the moment, they can be a bit difficult to find. Anyway, even if you have little interest in photography (perhaps not zero interest - that would be exaggerating), I'd recommend digging out what he has to say about things - I like his style and honesty.

How to find your purpose and do what you love

This is worth a read.

And yes, I'm trying, I'm trying. We all have a duty to in the end, don't we?

Here's a restful picture showing bokeh via soft blue circles - ahhhh....
