It’s been two years since I started posting a daily photo; in all cases a photo taken on the day it was posted. I am gratified to have well over 200,000 views of these nearly 720 images. [Most days I also add 5- 8 images to my Flickr account too – I have nearly 5000 photos loaded there.]
My post popular “Blipfoto” ever was Innocence posted Nov 16/2014 – out of abundance of caution, I almost never post photos of young children (my grandsons excepted) but this little chap proved to be a real winner.
Following a little review of some of my favorite posts from the last three months or so. Just click on the highlighted links. [All of these were taken in either Ontario or Mexico].
Nov 30 – Amphibious – I went 5 km out to sea with 90 Mexicans – they all swam back to shore – my camera and I stayed in the boat.
Dec 13 – Arte Nativo – I love to do portraits with my camera down low or even on the ground.
Dec 25 – Dumpster Diving on Christmas Day – I thought it was ironic that while most of us where looking under Christmas trees, these two were checking what was thrown away.
Dec 26 – Last Man Standing was a photo of a brave little chap determined to play hockey in the big leagues some day.
Jan 22 – Hand Signals was my take on the sport of beach volleyball.
Jan 29 – Derelict Beach House was a selfie I took inside an abandoned mansion on a gorgeous secluded beach near Zihuatanejo.
Jan 31 – I almost never post a sunset or sunrise even though we have one of each daily, so I was a little bummed to have a tuba player photobomb my first attempt.
Feb 09 – Le Style ce Moi was a spectacular display of body art – something which I still photograph quite often;
Feb 15 – When the smoke gets in your eyes is probably self-explanatory; sometime sepia images work really well.
Feb 22 – On her knees is a photo which captures both the religiosity and the glamour so very present in Mexico;
Feb 26 – A high key image of a Hungry Thief. No I did not turn him in even though I witnessed the theft.
On the technical side, about six months ago I acquired a full frame Nikon D800 with a 28 – 300 mm zoom lens; I also have a D7000 with a 10 – 24 mm lens. I now shoot all my photos in RAW and use Lightroom and/or Photoshop Elements for post processing.
