    Combining Photos and History

    by GWHughes | 10th of August, 2016

        I am often interested in the history of the location that I am photographing. By providing some context to the age of the building being photographed I can hopefully address the needs of some image purchasers that want a colorful image of a building over 150 years... More

    Keep it handy

    by Melodyanne | 11th of April, 2016

    Your camera will take no photos while it is stored in its bag! Having your camera at an easy to reach spot is an important key to making the most of quickly passing photo opportunities. It is also wise to make sure the card is in and the battery at least somewhat charged.... More

    Photography time

    by Lightpro | 2nd of February, 2016

    I have been amazed by the fact that there are photographers with over 100,000 images on line. As a retired professional photographer who had a camera in his hand a minimum of 10 hours a day, I have avoided carrying it with me. This has led to a small amount of time in the... More

    And the 2014 Word of the Year is .....

    by Karenfoleyphotography | 2nd of January, 2014

    I'm a list maker. It's what I do. It's how I keep myself organized. I'm such an extreme list maker that my husband jokes that I need to keep lists of all the lists that I keep! Sometimes I write things on a list, just so I can cross them back... More

    Frog in the bathroom ...

    by Bevanward | 28th of November, 2011

    On a recent work trip I opted to leave the toliet for Sebastian, a Green Tree Frog who I named after it seemed he wasn't hopping away. He spent his time either right in the bowl itself or under the rim. I found moths around the outdoor lights which he gladly ate in exchange... More

    by Davidwatmough | 2nd of April, 2011
