As a graphic designer many people think that designing a web site and getting it Up and Running should be a piece of cake for me. Print media is far different from Internet design as I never found a passion for it. As I was learning a new area for each thing I wanted to accomplish, it became quite clear to me that those that do this for a living are worth the money you pay them. There knowledge on how each piece fits together and creates what you want your sight to look like is amazing. If you have no experience with this don’t be afraid to hire someone.
I managed to suffer through with many hours under my belt now and I think this site represents me quite nicely. I hope it is as easy to navigate through as I was intending and that you can enjoy looking at the photography and fill inspired, relaxed, hopeful and joy as I did when I took them. As I was adding new images I realized I was laughing at certain ones because of how that animal acted or how the wind would knock a poor flower around making me think I would never get a clear shot.
I will be adding a blog post with the story behind each piece so that you can share in my nightmares, joys and laughter too. I’m going to start with the image you see above of the Frozen Dik Dik. First off, the name is funny in and of itself, so God must have a real sense of humor just based on how He named everything.
This little one found a place upon the rocks to watch those moving about but stayed completely still. The area was hidden on the path so unless you were looking for it you wouldn’t have noticed this beautiful animal. I stood there for some time waiting for it to move, blink, do something but no, didn’t budge. I wanted to see more things so moved on but can’t help but laugh at just how still it was and how it made such a great photograph.
Various animals always make me laugh at their expressions, what they do and how they act. What makes me laugh the absolute most is when I go to take a picture of an animal and they turn there back to me so all I get is the back and the butt. In my house we laugh and call that the ‘butt’ shot. When that happens I have a good laugh, attempt some type of photograph and then move on thinking it just wasn’t the right time to take that shot. My house cat Midnight, use to do that to me all the time. That’s why my logo is of his back.
I’m happy that I now have a few pieces in each of my three galleries available for those that really enjoy my photography. If you find something that isn’t available you can always shoot me an email to get further information.
Have a Blessed Day!
