About Me

My photo
I am usually typing on a computer most of the day, but today I am trying my hand at a new project: My 2011 365-Day Photo Journey. I gained a love for photography when I was required to take a fine arts class for college--I chose photography. The course required a lot of work--Professor Loehr saw to that--but it opened my eyes to a new world. It's been many years since I took that class and I don't know how much I actually remember, but following Laura Delagal's 365 Photo Journey and watching my niece's love for taking pictures has peeked my interested in photography again. Although I don't have a professional camera, I did receive a really nice Sony digital (point-and-shoot) camera from my sweetie for Christmas this year. Going through some difficult times in my life, I thought that undertaking my own 365-day photo journey might be a way to relieve a little stress and have some fun with my new toy. Through this journey I will capture some of life's joy and its pain, but I will also be able to refocus the lens of my life on the many wonderful things that God has created. Well, here goes. Wish me luck!

Day 44 - 2/13/2011

Seagulls at Dauphin Island
Today was such a gorgeous day--the temps were in the high 60s and the sun was shining bright.  So, my sweetie and I decided to take a drive out to Dauphin Island.  We brought our cameras on our sight- seeing adventure.  We had fun.  I must have taken over one-hundred pics today.  Some photos came out pretty good while others were just so so.  This picture was taken while we were on the West-end of the Island near Fort Gaines.  The Island was full of seagulls.  If you wanted to take a picture of one, you were in luck! We had also thought about touring the Fort, but decided to save that for another day when we had more time.

Either way, it was a nice day for a drive with my favorite fella!


  1. I love taking pictures of birds. That's the problem sometimes when doing a day-trip: you just take way too many pictures and it's difficult to decide which ones are the best:) But that's part of the fun!

  2. Sounds like a great day. This is a wonderful shot. I like that they're looking away...and you can see part of their reflection in the ripples of the water.

  3. I like how you selected only two birds in this photo rather than a whole flock. The angle is great, too!
