My Photo Taking Skills

Have you noticed any changes to my blog site?

The theme is the same, but I changed the color scheme with the background now my favorite color.  Yes, yellow is my favorite color.  I try to stick with the mellow colors as these colors for me are soothing and comforting.  That is what I want my blog site to represent to you the readers.  Don’t get wrong, I like the vibrant colors also and who knows maybe someday will update to those.  But for now I will keep these colors for a while.

Did you notice the photos on each page have changed?

When I decided to update the theme several months ago, I did not like the photos that came with the theme.  They did not represent what my blog was about.  So, at the time being in a hurry getting the new theme published, I found some photos out there on the internet that I could use and I resized them and then cropped them to fit my site and used those.  I don’t know if you remember or not, but some of those photos were not clear due to the resizing.  But I kept them anyway.

For no reason, I woke yesterday morning and decided I wanted to make some changes to this site.  So the color scheme was updated and the photos were updated.  Guess what?  These photos are ones I actually took.  Yes, they were taken by me; some from trips I have taken in the past and a few from my very own backyard.  Each photo is part of a bigger picture, as I had to crop them in order for them to fit my header.

Most photos I take are with my smart phone, I have a few taken with my tablet also.  Almost all my photos are not good, because I do not take the time to take a good photo.  I would like to take the time to take great photos, especially now because some of you bloggers out there (you know who you are), take wonderful photos.  I want to also, except I don’t want to buy an expensive camera to do it.  I hope someday soon, to have time to read about the settings on my smart phone and take great photos.

In the future when I start taking better quality photos I would like to share them with you.  Until then, I hope you enjoy the few I have displayed on each page of this site.

Oh, one more picture to leave you with – this was taken on last month’s trip in search for that next location of our home in the next chapter in our lives.

  1. I am an amateur smart phone picture taker and when possible I do try to incorporate shots into my posts…as I recently did with our ficus that threatens to take over an entire room. Perhaps I too will be more active along these lines and snap some shots for show.

  2. It looks fantastic! Those pictures are beautiful! I think you did a fabulous job. 🙂 When I got my new phone, I was really disappointed that it took better pictures than the camera I owned! I too would love to get more into photography and an actual super-nice camera to use. Perhaps someday! I hope you’re doing well. 🙂
