Deviseth - He whose practice it is to contrive wickedness. Swift - Such as greedily execute their wicked designs.
And every one that heareth these sayings... shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand... And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
The Storm of our own making...
Will we learn this time?

I got a take down notice for this video because I used the song "Swing that Music" by Louis Armstrong. Now, I did this after getting the song from a Pubic Domain Music site and was under the impression that I was ok to use. For all I know that is still probably the case. In any event, I've replaced the song with something of my own that I mixed up.
Moral of the story: Trust no one and nothing! And always try to use ALL your own content.

They like to move around and the environments that they live in are full of contrast, lots of sun, lots of shade.
You need to be prepared and really work with the animals. And take lots and lots of shots.
Time and practice will bring you better results.

Thank God I can find some solace in the beauty of Nature.
It's just hard to top a peaceful and serene sunrise.

This is why, if your interested in Stock Photography, you need to have several sites selling your work.
It's time consuming and a lot of work, but like anything else, the more you put into it the more you get out of it.
Planning helps too! Most likely any seasonal shots you take now won't sell for close to a year from now, so try to work six months or more in advance. Yes you can take Christmas themed photos in June.
With more and more publishing being done on the internet the lead time won't be so crucial in the future, but the print media isn't going away anytime soon. So, shoot accordingly.

For some strange reason, there was a band across the top of this image. It's like the pixels weren't written to the CF card correctly. This forced me to crop this image. I'm not sure the crop works as I had something different in mind what I took this.
Missing the top portion of the surf boards bothers me. I'm not sure the picture is as strong without more of the surfboards.
That's why it's always good to take several pictures of your subject. Digital insurance. I'm glad I've got other images of this shot.

As fun as it is to do some creative things in Photohop with my images, there's not much use for them.
I have some fun, and either delete them or burn them to disk when I'm finished. These types of images have no stock value that I know of, nor is there anywhere to submit them.
Their value is in the fun playing with them.

Besides cleaning off the hard drive of old images, fall is just around the corner. Time of some change of seasons photography.
Around here those changes are so subtle, you have to seek them out.

I hope it's not just all hype.
Update: I've installed Google Chrome and played with it a bit. My first impression? eh, I like Firefox better. That's not to say it's bad or that it won't become my browser of choice, it just doesn't seem to fit well with the way I work.
I'll play around with it some more and post a follow up.
