Kicking off a new category on my blog with “Cloud Gazing”. Cloud gazing is a favorite activity of mine, as well as photographing some of the clouds I see. In this category I’m going to be posting cloud photos I’ve taken of clouds over my front and back yard, or other locations.
This photo taken on Monday, June 17th, 2019 at 10:30 a.m. CST. Location: over my back yard.
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything to the blog, so you can read below all of the latest things that have been going on at mudpix.com and my photo magazines.
2019-06-16-SU @ 8:12 PM CST – My PAYHIP shop has been set up. You can view and purchase digital zines here.
2019-06-16-SU @ 6:46 PM CST – A new option for obtaining JOYRIDE MAGAZINE is coming soon. For those who would like to show support and purchase copies of the digital magazine, you will be soon be able to do so on PAYHIP. The magazine is free, and is a direct download from this site, however each free issue is only available for a limited time. Adding the option to purchase the issues on PAYHIP adds a way for you to purchase back issues once they’ve expired on this site, or you can purchase them as they are issued. Either way, I plan to make each issue available free here on mudpix.com for a limited time period. The first issue is being uploaded to PAYHIP today. I’ll update soon when it is available for purchase.
2019-06-09-SU @ 7:11 PM CST – The new JOYRIDE MAGAZINE has been launched. It’s the free digital (pdf) photo magazine featuring my traffic photography around Alabama and Georgia. Download your copy of the first issue here. Available for a limited time only. Get it now while you can.
2019-05-29-WE @ 8:05 PM CST – If I haven’t mentioned it lately, I recently purchased a bluetooth shutter button which connects to my Samsung Galaxy S8+. I bought it for two reasons. The first reason is because I wanted to be able to mount my phone on my dash and have the ability to focus safely on my driving while also being able to capture traffic photos. The other reason is that Georgia law in my area does not allow holding your phone while driving. This method allows me to comply with the law, and still make some good photos. What has resulted from this for me is a new addiction to my traffic photography because it has enabled me to safely and efficiently capture more photos when I’m out on the road. Today alone I captured 373 photos during my drive from work to go pick up some groceries and then get home. In the past week I have captured 2,922 photos. Many of these photos were taken during my road trips out around the lakes while doing my normal photography out there. What do I plan to do with all these photos you may ask? Well I’m going to put them in free versions of MUDPIX MAGAZINE. I recently started a “Clouds” version of the magazine which was to focus on my addiction to cloud gazing. Well now that I have this new thing I’m doing with my phone mounted to my dash and collecting traffic photos (which also allows me to capture clouds on the horizon along the way when I’m out on the road – 2 birds, 1 stone) I’m considering to make a name change to the free magazine. I may even start an entire new magazine series and leave “MUDPIX MAGAZINE” to it’s original focus, which is my lake photography. I’m going to have to start getting a handle on all these photos I’m taking so that I can keep up with my editing. So tonight I’ve decided to put off photo editing on MUDPIX MAGAZINE #1 so that I can edit my new traffic photos. I will be “batch” editing the traffic photos to save time because there are way too many to do premium edits for like I do for MUDPIX MAGAZINE. Be on the lookout for lots of new free photo ebooks coming soon.
2019-05-18-SA @ 10:55 AM CST – The first issue of “Clouds” is now available for you to download and view. It’s a free ebook focused on cloud gazing, and includes bonus content such as photo previews for future issues of MUDPIX MAGAZINE. The pdf is 170 pages, and 23.1 MB. You can download it here.
2019-05-16-TH @ 10:24 PM CST – I’ve been working on a new free ebook today. I hope to have it finished and available on site before the end of this upcoming weekend.
2019-05-12-SU @ 9:25 PM CST – More of my recent photography has been posted in Day Trip – Saturday, May 11th, 2019.
2019-05-11-SA @ 10:37 AM CST – I have some new recent photography posted in Day Trip – Sunday, April 28th, 2019. Go check out the photos.
2019-05-11-SA @ 9:40 AM CST – My YouTube Channel is coming along now, complete with it’s first video post, a channel art banner, and a new channel icon. I may start using the icon as my official logo all around on my site and all social media, but for now I’m happy with it representing my work on YouTube. Go check out my channel and subscribe.
2019-05-11-SA @ 8:54 AM CST – My latest list, Featured YouTube Channels And Videos has been added to the blog. Currently it features a few new favorite channels and videos I’ve discovered since starting my YouTube Channel. I’ll be updating this list as time goes on and I discover new favorite content to link to.
2019-05-11-SA @ 7:20 AM CST- Now that this site is growing, I think it’s about time that I start maintaining a new updates list so that you can keep up with the latest updates. The latest update on site today is my first video posted to YouTube. It’s called Relax At West Point Lake – Video #1 and was filmed on Monday, May 6th, 2019. In the video you can see one of my favorite locations in Georgia where I love to go do my outdoor photography. I’m planning to film more videos over this summer from various locations. Follow this site to catch my upcoming videos. Also please subscribe to my YouTube Channel.

This Website Is Growing!
This month in November 2019, a lot of work is going on to expand content for you to enjoy. While I’m certainly focused on completing the first issue of MUDPIX MAGAZINE and getting it available for sale, I’m also adding lots of new pages to the website. Some of the pages are relevant only to this website’s content specifically, and other pages are basically link lists providing access to some of my favorite articles from favorite websites I like to explore personally. In this process of adding new pages, I’ve also been working on cleaning up (moving) some miscellaneous content around the website to make it easier when browsing on mobile devices (smartphones and tablets). Head over to the Updates page to see what all the new pages are that have been added recently. Keep your eyes peeled throughout the next few months. There’s bound to be tons of pages added for you to check out.
