52 Weeks of Photos: Week 1

As a wannabe photographer, I will probably always be a work in progress.  I am always made very aware of this when I go out on photo walks and take pictures specifically for an intended purpose.  I am much better with the candid, unplanned shots.

The theme for week one of the photography challenge I am doing is Look Ahead and it is from the Vision Category.

Vision: This category is designed to push you to go beyond sight, to insight; to take inspiration and make it a reality. Developing a Vision for your work is showing to others what you see in your mind’s eye.

My vision for Look Ahead was to look beyond what is in front of you.  Beyond the pier, if you will.  I took pictures of piers that just so happened to be on a frozen lake.  Another thing to look beyond, the present cold conditions.  I am looking forward to warmer and brighter days to come.

Picture taken at Natchez Trace State Park in West Tennessee.  This was the boat ramp at Pin Oak Lake and it was a sight to see so much of this part of the lake frozen.  A beautiful sight really!  I didn’t dare venture out much on the ice though.  You can say I am a chicken if you want.  I did throw a rock or two, and a big stick.

My biggest problem with taking pictures is keeping a steady hand.  I was trying to be mindful of this as I was out taking pictures this day, and noticed how tightly my hands were holding on to the camera.  I loosened up some and tried to be more aware of my grip.  There really is no need for a death grip on a camera when you have a perfectly good strap around your neck, right?

I have one after thought on this picture now that I am looking at it on my post: I could have done a better job with my cropping and left out that bit of dried weeds on the left.  I’m a work in progress, remember?  🙂

Thanks for stopping by today.  My plan is to be back with week two, Color Harmony, next Tuesday.
