The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.

Stunning, Punkin. I really like your macro shots. You have a great talent for finding the patterns of beauty in the natural world. Was this with your little fuji or your regular camera?

Regular camera.

This was the shot that made my whole afternoon walk worth it. I'm quite proud of this baby and I'm not going to pretend otherwise.

Thanks for the link to mindofthephotographer, my blog. This shot is really good, not blowing smoke up your ass. I am a "real photographer," or at least 100% of my income is from shutter buggin'. I must let you know... yes, I am going to totally rip this shot off! I love it. And copying the shot is a high form of flattery coming from me. Keep rocking it.

Wow! I'm floored by your comments Wes- not that I should give it more weight than the other compliments I receive- but you understand that I'm more than a little in awe that you'd not only visit my dinky site, but you'd pay me such an incredibly high compliment. It makes me feel as if I could actually rely on this photography thing as part of my income. People keep telling me that I should do so but I’m scared and I need a whole lot more practice and skill first.

I am very proud of this photograph. It was one of those that I knew would be a winning shot, even before I snapped the picture. I just love it when that happens. I’m going to be crowing about this photo for quite a while.

I don't mind people blowing smoke up my ass either! ;)

Hey, just keep doing what you are doing. And you know how you said you "knew it was a winning shot, even before you snapped it?" Make that happen everytime. When you can do that, then put in your two weeks notice and get whirling on this photog thing. Let me tell you, I am 25, not even two full years out of college and living the photo gig. I had no idea how to use a SLR 4 years ago. And now, they send me all over the country on their dime to shoot. Most people are too afraid to put everything they have into it, income included. Just keep practicing. Get to the point where you can see every shot before you take it. Develop that eye, because it is truly a gift that not everyone has. And besides, I have shot in Eugene before... i.e., the Saturday Market and Farmers Market. The scenic opportunities are endless there as well. Of course you know all this. Wear that damn camera out! I literally did that yesterday. My mirror locked up on me and fell off. I had to rent a camera to finish this magazine assignment in Indy! I think that I can safely say I am a pro now that I have destroyed the mirror on my camera! Just keep on keeping on. When you think more about taking photos than you do sex, drugs or rock 'n' roll, you know it is your calling.
