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 47 - 2/16/2011

The fog in Mobile was so thick, visibility was near zero in many places.  By the time I made it to campus I could invision several photo opps.  I knew that I didn't have time to make it around to the front of the chapel  like one of my co-workers did (he's a professional photographer for the campus), but since I always park near one of the residence halls and the Jesuit cemetary I decided to take a couple of shots of the nearby graves.  These pictures looked better through the fog than some of the other shots that I'd taken before, so I decided to use one as my POD.


  1. Nice composition! It's hard to decide which one I like better. I like them equally for different reasons. The top because of the balance with the trees; the bottom because your subject is closer. ---The fog adds an element of mystery.

  2. Wow! They are powerful photos! I love them both. Fog makes a great photo element.

  3. Cheryl,
    Good job on the photos!! I like the first one the best! You've got a good eye on this and you nailed on having the tree and plants on the foreground framed the whole cemetery. Really nice framing! And the fog? It worked out great especially for a cemetery shot!!! You go, girl!! ;)

  4. Thanks, guys! See, I am paying attention to what you are doing and I'm learning. :-)

  5. The fog creates the perfect setting for this scene.

  6. Ooo...this is nice and kind of eerie. Perfect setting for the foggy day.
