Finally, after all these years of snapping and sharing so many images, I have established a humble photo market online. Before you visit, know that I am not the greatest photographer on the internet and my images are not of highest resolution. Hence, while I have a few which could be purchased as large prints, most are moderate to low rez and best for printing small.
The site is presented in Galleries by recommended purchases. Photos in each gallery are recommended there because of the resolution thing. Simply put, the highest rez images are in Wall Art. Buy large prints or anything else there. In contrast, all other galleries; Keepsakes, Paper Prints / Smaller Stuff, iPhone photos – are medium to low rez. Don’t buy wall art from there. But do consider fun stuff like fridge magnets, coasters, puzzles, and mousepads!
As part of my job, I am often asked to scout for locations that reside in the country. Some call it rural, others assume the middle of nowhere. I say, I could do this scout every day. The metaphors about roads and getting-away-from-it-all are too plentiful. Perhaps another case of over-thinking the simplest of things. Ironic, that many of us are so busy driving everywhere except where we want to go, we have little time left over to drive where we want to go, for ourselves, with ourselves.
Then there are days when I don’t have anything specific to find but a drive is in order. In most cases, curiosity will literally take me down that road where I always wondered “What is down there?” Or it could be on the way to somewhere else but I’ve seen that same route too many times. Always opt for the scenic route or go the other way.
Just get in your vehicle and drive. Yes, keep an eye on the road but discover the sky and creativity of the clouds. Pause randomly and look as if you were the widest of camera lenses. Wave back to the passing farmer because he’s going to wave at you.
A little life location scout of your own will do good. Think of it as inspiration. Imprint it to your soul. Enjoy the journey. Relish the stops. Call it back and rediscover it another day. Make the time – even if you’re going tomorrow.
