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.

Photo Of The Day #26 Thursday, November 28th, 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. The view you see in this photo is looking out across the water on West Point Lake from Lower Glass Bridge. I was standing in the middle of the bridge when I took this photo. You can’t tell it in this photo, but in the far distance is where West Point Lake Dam is located. This view point is the farthest view away from the dam that I know of where you can see to the other side of the lake where the dam is located. Some spectacular photos can be taken here during the right conditions throughout the day if you have time to spend there. It’s one of my favorite places to take my camera. It was shot on Thursday, October 11th, 2013.

Relax At West Point Lake – Video #1

Here it is, the first video I’ve produced. It’s a compilation of 4 video clips I filmed with my Galaxy S8+ on Monday, May 6th, 2019 on West Point Lake at Long Cane Park in Troup County, Georgia. I have in the past tried to get into filming and editing/producing outdoor videos, but never really spent much time at it. In 2019 I hope to explore filming more and bring more of these videos to the internet for your viewing enjoyment. This video is intended to give you a chance to zone out and enjoy a view of nature at one of my favorite locations where I love to do my outdoor photography.

Day Trip – Friday, April 26th, 2019

Thanks for viewing my first Day Trip post. If you aren’t already familiar with my content on this site, here’s a quick intro…

I have been into photography for a long time and my primary interest with my camera work is outdoor candid photography which includes nature, wildlife, and people around the lakes in Georgia and Alabama. I bought my first “good” camera in 2016 and using it pretty much solidified my interests in photography. Before then, it was basically just cellphone photography that I did (mostly for fun and because all I had was my cellphone cameras). This site is my “journal” of photography served in the form of my self published digital (pdf) magazines. The magazines start from the very beginning of my photography with my “good” camera (which is Canon’s SX410 bridge camera for those interested to know). Since the magazines are focused on my older photography (for now until I catch up on all the editing of thousands of photos that are going into these magazines) I thought it would be nice to start these Day Trip posts to highlight my more recent photography that would be coming up in later issues of the magazines.

So how this will work is with each Day Trip post, I’ll provide the date, maybe a few short paragraphs about my photography on that day and then show you a few photos taken on that date. I think you’ll enjoy the work I have to show you.

So let’s get started with this first Day Trip post featuring photos I shot on Friday, April 26th, 2019.
