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 53 - 2/22/11

Oil rigs off of Dauphin Island


  1. These look like some alien creatures on the water.

  2. Ohhhhh how I wish I could be standing next to that water! I was just reading about landscape photography and how it's far more effective when there are three parts to it...just like what you did (the shore, the water, and the sky). Great job! It's a beautiful photo.

  3. This would look even better if viewed on large. The blue water is spectacular and love that straight horizon. :)

  4. Such a gorgeous blue!

    Perhaps there was unattractive stuff just under the frame you chose in this picture, but I'd be curious to see what the picture would have looked like if you had cut some of the sky and included more beach. Although the birds flying are very nice:)

  5. I love this one! There is so much to see on it and the birds just make it perfect.
