Photography is huge these days with Snapchat conversations, selfies, and phones capturing every moment of our lives. Face it, for a while, life is moving FAST!


Then we display our talents on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram. Of course, I’m on all of those. Why not? It’s fun. But here on WordPress my mind is able to decipher all the jargon and I can use my brain to feel accomplished. I need to figure out how to put my name on the photo. I’ll add that to my to-do list.


The above photos were taken with my phone out at a restaurant on a date. The pair turned out so lovely I wanted to share them. The second photo is filtered. Which one do you prefer, filtered or unfiltered? Sounds like a cigarette commercial from the seventies. I haven’t figured out how to use my camera as yet but I will very soon. I know that I have that eye, that sensitivity, or quality that finds the picture.

No, I’m not full of myself. It’s just something you know. I wonder if others find this with taking pictures or writing or creativity in general. It is a good feeling and something that we own ourselves. How about you? What do you enjoy making? Maybe this generation which feels and communicates through their phone gets instant gratification through likes, posts, and pictures. It’s here, let’s join in the fun.
