1st Photos of the Year!

I don't have my camera with me all the time, so when I am taking pictures/photos, it is usually a planned event.  Today I went to one of my local favorite spots "Palma Sola Botanical Park" in Bradenton, FL.  Everything is not in bloom due to it being Winter, but I did find some interesting sites nevertheless.  


Please comment and let me know which photos you like the most.  At the end of the year I usually put a calendar together comprised of "the favorites".

Photography Goals - 2013

My mind is going in so many different directions. I need to get my thoughts down on paper before I lose them. I feel like, so many things to do, so little time. 

My ideas come from Click It Up a Notch. It is a wonderful blog for all types of Photographers. Check it out of you have time. 

1. Clean my PC of 2012 photos that I will never process 
2. Complete Project 52 - a photo a week. These photos will be posted to my new Facebook Photography Page - Goal #5
3. Learn to use the Back Button Focus feature a better. I love the concept, just don't know how to set it. 
4. Photograph people better - portraits.  
5. Create a Facebook page for just my photography 
6. Learn to use natural lighting better

Leffis Key Photo Outing

Today I tried to focus on something other than my usual flowers and birds, landscape.  As you can see, it was not an easy task.

Enjoy today's photos and please feel free to comment.  Would love to know what you think.

A Bird Outing

Finally a nice warm day today, so I took a short stroll around my complex.  I didn't think I captured anything good as the clouds were starting to roll in, but to my amazement this is what I ended up with.  



I love this one!

Today's Photos

These were taken on my walk through De Soto National Memorial.  Not a long walk today, nor was there a lot going on.  I can't wait for Spring.
