Welcome!

Linda JeffersIn a world of so many great photographers and writers, I am venturing into some unknown territories, leaving comfort zones, finally very willing to practice the art of seeing. By maintaining the practice of posting daily photos, I hope to continue learning about the possibilities that I trust are out there for the taking.

Come join me on my journey!

Interesting read.

Butterflies are difficult to shoot unless they are positioned exactly (head to rear) laterally, equaly distant to the camera plane. Even then the depth of field is so minimal I either get the legs in focus, the head in focus, the large eye in focus, or body in focus.

But when I go out to shoot, something always shows up…..if I’m present.

    Exquisite. Beautifully balanced composition, sweet, vibrant colors, spot on focus. Congratulations.

    • Thanks for checking out my blog Susan. A couple of my friends who have followed my blog in the past, who are not on FB…where I’ve been posting lately and not posting here, helped me see my selfishness. It feels good to be back on MY page, as opposed to the no-man’s-land of FB:-) Love you!

  2. JJ, you are always so kind and generous complimenting my photos. You are my artistic compass as to the direction I am headed:-) Thanks for giving me the nudge to travel back home to my blog.
