One shot, two ways. Love it! This is an opportunity to see a crazy number of photos and to learn from the experience of other bloggers (I won’t say other photographers because I haven’t earned the right to be included in that category.) ,  Professional or novice, there’s plenty to be said for both.
Welcome to my home – or at least two sides of it.

It seems what makes me happiest lately is blogging, posting, and photography.  I’m one of those people that’s been looking for some kind of hobby, interest, or talent that will keep me occupied and smiling while I’m doing it.  I’ve tried Music: accordion (not MY idea!), piano, organ, guitar, mandolin – Art: drawing, painting, sculpting – Crafts: beading, flower arranging, stained glass – Do you get where I’m going with this.  I’ve tried and maybe not failed as much as lost interest.  After so many attempts, it’s become increasingly depressing, thinking that maybe I’ll never have the stick-to-it-ness to find something I could enjoy and, some day, get really good at.  Enter WordPress.  Now, I have found happiness.  Writing and photography.  I played around with stalking a – ah – stalk.  Specifically, a Black-Eyed Susan (I think), that’s growing randomly all over my front yard.  This is a slide show of her progress over the week or so that I captured her growth, each a.m. and p.m.  Click on the first Susie Q for the slide show to begin.

I hope you all find lots of happiness, just like me.  If you need some help doing this, visit Island Traveler’s Weekly Challenge to see what gets some other bloggers happily blossoming.

Thanks, Island Traveler…
