Those Other Moments

Do you ever wonder what drew you to photograph a particular image? I’m not a big believer in taking photographs only for the sake of my “portfolio.” Instead, I find myself cataloging moments that make me pause, take note, evaluate, or often just scratch my head.

 

Moments that make me pull over:

Ennis Mortuary

Simplicity

 

…that make me shake my head:

Overflowing garbage, moments that make me shake my head

Wasteful Symmetry

 

…when I think I’m clever :):

Reflections in the tub, moments when I think I'm clever

Reflections

…that remind me why  I only have two pairs of shoes:

Just for kicks :)

…that are missing something, such as the wind:

Ennis Flag Pole

Where’s the wind?

…when nature inspires me:

Ice Trees formed by the lake

…when people inspire me:

But mostly there moments when I’m just thankful to be able to share my images with others.

    Great moments John.
    Love the Ice Trees.

  2. Really nice “moments” photos. :)
    I also enjoy taking photos and strike anytime I feel like I could get a good photo. It could be any theme and at any time.
