Photography Friday

Actually photography Saturday this week, but that just doesn’t have the same ring to it ūüôā ¬†This week, I’m sharing some of my favorite pictures from my Europe trip after senior year last summer. ¬†I have more pictures than I know what to do with so I’m hoping to start getting caught up on sorting and editing them soon! ¬†The biggest category of pictures I’m having trouble with are the ones which aren’t awesome pictures but which have too much sentimental value to get rid of. ¬†I’m pretty sure I’ll end up just keeping everything for now, but I might revisit that decision in a few years. ¬†Do you take a lot of vacation pictures? ¬†And if so, how do you deal with storing and sorting them? ¬†Do you ever get rid of any?

Photography Friday

Unfortunately, this was another week when I didn’t have enough time to get out and take a new picture, but I’ve decided not to be too hard on myself as long as I’m doing something each week toward getting better at photography. ¬†And this week, not only did I touch up the lovely photo above, I also participated in the Ames Camera Club abstract competition. ¬†It was very informal, with no real winners selected, but the judge did pick 8 of the 30-ish pictures as good examples of abstracts, including one of mine (posted here). ¬†Although we don’t always interact that much at camera club (when there are speakers, for example), last night was a lot of fun and everyone was really supportive of everyone else’s efforts.

I decided to work on this picture this week because I’ve had so much fun with taking abstract photos for the competition. ¬†I think I’d like to try to keep looking for interesting shapes like this to photograph. ¬†This particular picture is part of a wooden walkway at the top of the mountain containing the Mammoth Caves, near Hallstatt, Austria. ¬†I had a great time visiting Europe with friends and am having fun attempting to sort through the hundreds of pictures we took too!
