Photography Basics

I decided to change my blog!

This is a “how to” for people who want to learn the basics of Photography.

I’ll be creating “exercises” that you can follow along with and post here for others, along with myself to critique.

I will start off on a weekly basis and we’ll see how that goes.

Houses

Random House in Hidden Valley Lake, Indiana


I love houses!. I shot this a few years ago and then processed it in Photoshop.

Many years ago I applied for a job as a Real Estate Agent. It required me to go through a training program to learn the in's and out's. I didn't have the money. I wish I could have done it because I love love love houses!. I spend countless hours surfing Sibcy Cline looking and dreaming!

I've lived in three different houses and one apartment in my 52 (almost 3) years. The first was the house I grew up, 745 Memory Lane, Liberty Boro. What a great name for a street! My house was at the top of a hill and the street went around in a circle. No one came up the hill unless they lived there or were visiting someone. So it was like our own little world up there. The whole entire place was our playground! I had to sell it when my parent passed.. was a hard thing to do... The house number 745 stays with me.. I see that number ALL the Time...I often wondered why I kept seeing that number. It pops up when I look at the clock at times, or a license plate in front of me.. all different things.. I've decided that when I see that number, it's my Mom and Dad's way of telling me they are watching over me...may sound dumb.. but that's the way I feel.....

The second place I lived was the apartment after I got married. If memory serves me right (and most times it doesn't) it was 2326 Surrey Lane. Mt. Vernon Apartments in Elizabeth PA. We only lived there about 7 months, but it was fun!

Then we bought a house...Pike St. in Port Vue Pa. We totally remodeled it over the years. I loved what we did to it!.

Now I live in a house in Cleves Ohio with Scott, Tucker, Emma, Rudy, Furby and Spike. We've did a bit of remodeling, mainly the kitchen. It doesn't look like the one I posted here, but it's nice. It has a lot of character.

I have a dream house. I don't know if I'll ever have it.. but I keep hoping. It's a log house...one story... with lots of windows, a fireplace, three bedrooms, a master suite..wrap around porch with part of it screened in....

maybe someday... if we hit the lottery!

later...
