A Potential Wash Out

“I’ve found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more
chances, Be more active, Show up more often.”
― Brian Tracy

Always go!  Seriously, ALWAYS go!  This is one of the most important lessons I have learned since I began my journey with photography more than decade ago.

I tend to go photograph favorite places time and time again.  Charleston is one of my must visit destinations in spring time.  In spring and fall, I visit

Loud Colors, Quiet Places

“There’s a fragility here veiled in stillness, quiet, and the detachment from the noise of daily life.”

-Daniel Milnor

I have always sought peace when leaving my daily life and heading into nature.  The benefits nature provides my soul have never been as needed as they have been for the past year.  What I have found is that no matter

“Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.”

“You’re off to Great Places!

Your mountain is waiting,
So… get on your way!”
― Dr. Seuss

I was really afraid that this would be the year that I would miss seeing the really vibrant fall colors that bring my heart such joy.  Lack of color and muted colors have been all that I had been able to find this autumn.  That all changed

― John Muir

“Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.”
― Albert Einstein

Usually, I spend October chasing the changing colors of leaves with my camera.  This October has been unlike other Octobers since I began photographing.  I have found that while I wait for the leaves to begin their final spectacular display, I have directed my energy into further exploration with composites.

When I began this project of posting 52 composites in a year,
