Well, my plan to post an interesting photo at the end of each month has gotten off to a rocky start. With a busy end of the week, life got in the way, and it is clearly no longer January 31.
But setting aside that small detail, my original thinking was this: I have only been taking photographs since last spring, when my children gave me a camera for Mother’s Day. Any nice photos that appear on this blog are mostly the result of luck. So I try to practice when I can, by taking still life photos (great way to practice — nothing moves or gets cold!) and occasionally, some of the photos turn out much better than I expected.
So I thought that I would post one a month, starting in 2013. We’ll pretend this is still January; I’ll try to get my act together and post another one on time at the end of February. And after this, it will be almost all photo and very little “talk.”
This first one is of a salad I was making. The colors looked so nice, that I grabbed the camera and miraculously, the resulting photos looked almost artistic when I viewed them on the computer (one day, I’ll know how to achieve that on purpose). I put this photo in soft focus to heighten the effect.
