Winter Wonderland 

In which our hero snaps pictures with his definitely not fancy camera

As I’m sure you’ll be able to tell by the unprofessional quality of these pictures, I am by no means a photographer. I have a few photo-savvy friends, with hundreds to thousands of followers on Instagram, with their fancy, expensive cameras and lenses, which they edit every night on their computers, making sure every inch of every photo is flawless (picture-perfect, you might say. Ha! …sorry). I don’t have any of that stuff; no fancy camera, no crazy editing program, and certainly very little knowledge on what makes a photo “good.” But, I can appreciate a beautiful photo when I see one, even if I can’t take many myself.

So, for that reason, I want to post a few photos I took today of the beautiful snow coming down in the little Illinois town where I currently reside. I’ve mentioned in a previous post that I appreciate nature immensely. I can appreciate a dark, stormy day just as much as a clear sunset over the ocean. And I don’t care if you hate driving in it, you can’t deny snow looks super purrrrty. I’m a sucker when it comes to pretty-looking scenery.

  1. Wow! Honestly would not be able to tell you don’t have a fancy camera! I love these! It makes me want to step through my computer and into this land (You know thats what makes a great picture!) I recently did Nanowrimo (writing a novel in a month) and it made me get back into writing again after I quit many years ago and I am so happy having it back. Seeing your pictures inspires me to start photography again because I also did that and quit! So thank you!

    1. Aw, thanks! Yeah, I remember you mentioned your Nanowrimo before – I’m happy that you followed through with it! I’m happy I could help spark a reinterest in photography for you, even if I don’t know the ups and downs of it myself. I truly hope your writing and photography brings you joy!
