The Old Schoolhouse
I love the way that an old schoolhouse can look. Here with a ton of snow on it this one looks even better. When I made this trip to Colorado I was really into studying the works of Ansel Adams. I could never get close to what he did, but my edits from that trip really show what I had in my mind. This photo had kind of an old school feel to it for me. I don’t know why it took this long for it to appear on the site though.
Colorado And The Snow
It seems like every visit that I make to Colorado ends up with us in the middle of a blizzard. Not the kind of blizzards that we get here in Indiana, and actually feet of snow coming down. While it is fun and interesting to photograph it can also be dangerous. There is something cool about having to snowshoe around though. I have said it before, but I need to get back out to Colorado.
The End Of Google+
I really have not had a landscape post with room to talk about this, but at the beginning of this month Google+ was officially no more. Google+ was a big deal to me back when it launched. I met many photographers from all over the world on there, and learned a lot as well. Some of those friendships from the early days are still going strong today. It is amazing seeing just how far some of those photographers have come in such a short period of time. The platform seemed perfect for photographers, but it was abandoned by the public very quickly. That is too bad. I stopped using it when it seemed like I was just yelling into an empty cave. Seeing it officially gone makes me sad. It was such a vital component to my early learning. I gained so much from talking to fellow creatives that could steer me in the right direction. I think that if it were not for photography I would not be on any social media right now. I have recently heard from more and more photographers who were stepping away from that aspect of it for their own sanity. I feel that my business model depends at least a little on getting my stuff out there. As a freelancer I feel that I have to always be showing what I can do. Maybe I need to reevaluate that part of my plan. Do I need to be on social as much as I am? Probably not.
