Watermark


Let me start of by clarifying why I created this watermark.  I have been thinking about it for a while now, ever since I put my first picture of the Phoenix up. Through WordPress I can see when someone takes my blog and “re-blog’s” it. That unfortunately happened with the Phoenix. I knew writing this blog would put myself out there for the world to see and possibly take, and while I was uneasy with it, I thought that no one would have interest in a no namers crappy pictures. While that still holds true, the protectiveness has come out. It may be my fault for exposing my family but I would still like to have control over what is published and shared. I created the watermark as a way to deter fake blogs from taking my stuff (I don’t think any credible blogs would). I in no way consider myself a photographer, and grappled with the “photography” on the end. While I am still uneasy with giving the impression to real photographers that I think I know what I’m doing by having a watermark, I hope that they understand, and don’t laugh so hard that water comes out of their nose.

On to the fun stuff! This picture was taken last night after playing in the mud. I am a HORRIBLE baker. I guess I didn’t get that gene from my Grandma…darn you!!!! It’s okay though, it’s still fun…kind of. My problem with baking is how everything has to be exact. Um yeah….Im more of a recipe tweaker. Needless to say the cookies are hard and a little tasteless. Like those ones you get in the giant tins with big sugar crystals on them. Oh well. The train picture was taken today, as well as the first one. The train turned out pretty good. Probably because I didn’t have to cook it, and Roman decorated it.

As you can tell I am still trying to get the hang of this prime lens and the low f-stop, and yes I am still in love.

    I struggled with using “photography” in my watermark as well. I often define myself as an amateur photographer. I really do have a long way to go in terms of learning about this art and craft.

    I’m not much of a baker either. Still, it’s fun. 🙂

    Beautiful shots.
