MUDPIX MAGAZINE Website Updates Postponed Tonight

Just a quick announcement. I am not feeling well tonight. I recently mentioned that I am experiencing pain in my lower back. Tonight the pain has flared up again. With that said, the last thing I feel like doing is hovering over my laptop to make updates such as the Photo Of The Day. I will catch up with that series as soon as I can. Any other updates that I make will be strictly from my phone.

Also MUDPIX MAGAZINE is currently on sale at 50% off. Find info on the home page at http://www.mudpix.com to get that discount. This sale runs until Sunday, December 8th, 2019.

Tonight in Alabama the weather will be in the 30’s. I’m going to relax in my easy chair as much as possible and read a book and probably will turn in to bed early.

Let’s take a look at some updates from the last week. I’ve added a new Nintendo page to the website. On it you’ll find a list of all the games I own on my Nintendo Switch. MUDPIX MAGAZINE is currently on sale at 50% off until Sunday, December 8th, 2019 using discount code “thanks19”. Get it at gumroad.com/mudpix. I’m planning on starting some photo editing for Issue #2 tomorrow evening. The Photo Of The Day which normally runs at 6 a.m. each morning will be postponed tomorrow. I’ve had a very busy time over the last few days and have been dealing with some back pain and haven’t really felt like making post scheduling a priority for POTD. I apologize to everyone who looks forward to seeing those early morning posts on my website. I will get tomorrow’s Photo Of The Day posted tomorrow evening. Tonight I think I’m going to download Krita, an open source digital art software and see what it’s all about. I need to blow the dust off my Wacom Bamboo drawing tablet.

Photo Of The Day #29 Sunday, December 1st, 2019

Digging into some of my old files and going back to 2013 to a photo shot with my then current camera, the Samsung SGH-T889, otherwise known as the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. This is a scenery shot of the Lower Glass Recreation area on West Point Lake in Troup County, Georgia. It was shot on Thursday, October 11th, 2013. This is a photo of some red berries in a tree near Lower Glass Bridge. I wasn’t expecting much out of this shot when I prepared to do the editing on it, but I love all the colors and how the sunshine captured coming through the trees highlights everything.

The following passage was originally published in Photo Of The Day from this particular series of photos taken on Thursday, October 11th, 2013. It is included for viewers who haven’t read it in previous posts:

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 was my first cellphone from the Note series by Samsung. That phone and it’s camera gave me the technology I needed during that time to enjoy taking some decent nature shots around the lakes. What you are seeing here is a step back in time to when I really started “documenting” the scenery on a regular basis around the lakes. Anything before that was really just snapshots for fun mostly as I would go out and take photos, but really had no idea what I would do with them. It would be 2016 when I got my Canon SX410 that took my photography to a new level and gave me the motivation to start selling my work in my self published photo magazine, MUDPIX MAGAZINE.
