Friday Photography: Homestead High Plains in Living Color

I had fun experimenting with both my camera and my cell phone when I was taking photographs around the High Plains Homestead.  So, while I will end up with several entries about the place, each one shows a different angle or viewpoint.  And even though four blog posts (including the one I wrote previously) seems like a lot, since I do not plan to write very much, hopefully you can breeze through them (or save them for another day!)  And if you have an opinion as to which style of photographs suit the place the best, I would be interested in reading your comments.

Friday Photography: Inspiration from Ansel Adams

When I went searching for quotations on photography, I found two brilliant ones from photographer, Ansel Adams.  He captured brilliant scenes of people and especially of nature throughout the 1900’s.  Seeing his photographs online gives me goose bumps – I cannot imagine what I would feel if I ever had the chance to see them in person.

I am taking a bit of risk by including one of his pictures on my blog.  Suddenly even my shots that are decent begin to greatly pale by comparison to his genius.  Yet I want to always be willing to admire those whose talent far exceeds my own even at the risk of exposing a bit of my own incompetence.  Even though he is far out of my league, may his photographs continue to compel me to capture life in my own way as well.

“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.” Ansel Adams


One of my favorite places on earth – the Tetons in Wyoming!

Ansel Adams “You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
