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 for a limited time period. The first issue is being uploaded to PAYHIP today. I’ll update soon when it is available for purchase.

2019-05-29-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.
