PICTURING 2014

Creating this gallery mirrored my year. There are no pictures at all taken between December 2013 and May 2014. I was either waiting for surgery, in the hospital, or recovering — too sick to go out and shoot.

And then spring came and Garry started encouraging me to go out, even if only for short periods. And then, there were photographs. This is my year from May through December. In pictures.

Although things seem to have worked out well, especially considering the challenges life threw at us, I would wish for all of us a less eventful 2015. Fewer cliffhangers. Less drama. Good health. A few more parties, concerts, sunny days, and rain in its season.

    • Thank you, Bob. Coming from you, that’s high praise indeed. I keep working at it. I’ve also gotten better cameras. Better equipment helps, too 🙂

      • Better equipment can make a difference combined with better software tools. You’ve raised your processing skills a bunch in the few years I’ve known you.

        I had to put up a post on the textile industry in the South after your inspiring one about your area. 🙂

        • The NIK filters you recommended rocked my world! But so did getting a couple of really high quality prime lenses for my Olympuses. Now I’m lusting after the OMD-10 … it has everything I want. I just need the body, since all my lenses will fit but how ironic that I could get it for less money if I buy it with two lenses I don’t need (I have those lenses — in duplicate!) than just the body. If I get nothing else, this year I get my macro lens! And learn to get more use out of the onOne package I picked up. It has thus far been hard for me to find the function I know are in there. Their demos are all on Macs … and not even new Macs. They need to fix that!

          When you do that piece old mills of the south, send me the link. WordPress keeps dumping you out of my followers list, so I keep adding you back but I miss stuff in the middle. It would be fascinating to show and discuss the history with photography and showhow American industrialization grew, migrated, then was gone. What do you think?
