When you fall in love with photography…

When you fall in love with photography…

…everything becomes a potential photo.

…you notice light and colors and details that you never noticed before.

…you realize that your first dslr that was a big investment when you bought it a year ago, is already the “old model”.

…you see things as potential photo props.

…you feel like you are learning more each day, but realize you still have so much to learn.

…you drool over other’s beautiful shots.

…you drool over other’s bigger, better cameras and lenses.

…you drool over other’s photo editing skills.

…you keep trying and you keep learning.

  2. I can relate! When I have not taken pics in a few days, oh how I miss it. I too am constantly looking for a shot. Enjoy dropping by to see what you are up to. Great textures, I've not got hooked on textures yet!

  3. I feel you in this. I like trying new things, but I am not very good at it yet. There are not enough hours (of sunshine) in the day! Love your textures.
