Until recently, I have been trying to focus on being a “nature” photographer. I thought I was pretty good, but I felt limited. I like lots of things and I should shoot them. This is what photography should be like. Shooting what interests you. Shooting something different.
I am tired of trying to shoehorn myself into a category. I like photography. I’ll shoot and share the images I like. Here and on NatureLightPhotograpy.com. I like nature and have several trips planned in the near future to shoot it, but I also like other things. Sometimes some pretty weird stuff. For some reason, dead animals hold a fascination for me; road kill especially. Don’t ask why, I have no idea.
I realized that photos, like art, should please the artist. If they make others happy, that’s good, but the important thing is to challenge myself with what I love. Or sometimes things I want to know more about. I have some ideas that I’d like to pursue in the near future. One of which has to do with shaving cream. That should be interesting if not entertaining.
Recently, I have started to ride dirt bikes and have taken an interest in racing. Both watching it and participating. It probably is some kind of death wish, but I’ll write more on that later.
Last year I went to Anaheim Stadium to watch Supercross, which is like motocross, but in a stadium. I loved it!! You could sit very close to the track and watch the riders work their machines around the track, making them dance and fly in ways that I could only dream.
Because there is two races three to four weeks apart at Anaheim, I went twice. The first time was to experience the spectacle. Not knowing what to expect, I didn’t take my camera. But the second time I was prepared! While my seats for the actual race were up high so I could see the whole track, during practice you can get down next to the track, but still in the stands, and photograph the riders.
That’s how I got this shot. I like it. I like the composition, the lighting, and the lack of distractions in the background.

Walking toward the pool to officiate a game. Hoping it wouldn’t rain, but knowing that it already has recently. Then I noticed this puddle with the reflection of the sky and part of the railing.

It’s been a while since I got an iPhone photo up. I’ve been kind of busy preparing for school and my upcoming trips.
I was in our copy room and saw the wrappers for the reams of copy paper on the trash can. I love blue and yellow and I liked the pattern.
Again, except for the tagging of this post, everything was done on the iPhone.

Shadow of a fan. I liked the texture of the ceiling and contrast and shape of the shadows.

Ok, I’ve been away for a while. It’s not easy developing a habit.
I hope this is the start of a more solid habit.
I saw this outside a health clinic. The peace sign caught my eye. Yes, it’s a surgical glove, but it was on the ground in an interesting pattern. And as I look at it, I see a bunny rabbit more and more.
I think you have to be able to see patterns like this.

Three doors. It’s kind of a window in a window thing. Our school has really long hallways and an interesting indoor/outdoor design.

Sandals. The two different feet with the same sandals on them was interesting. She wouldn’t let me take a picture of her right foot.

Sitting at my desk, looked down, and saw this. I liked the lines.

I liked the window effect with the clouds in the background.

This is my first upload on my daily challenge. Again, this was ALL done with just my iPhone. Taken, enhanced, and uploaded. The only thing I do from a computer is add the tags/categories.
I saw the patterns of the table top and the shadow and liked it. Plus the blue against the grey is nice.
