This is my first posting. It seems that time just gets away from me. In the morning, I think now I need to write. It is after 6:00 in the evening and life as a photographer has been in the way and it is time to cook dinner. Yes, I am the family cook, trying to put a gourmet dinner on the table most evenings. Earlier this summer, yes that seems a lifetime away as snow is falling, I led a photo workshop. Naturally it was one of the hottest days of the summer. Yes, it can reach over 100 degrees in Maine. The subject was photographing nature. I tried to have all the participants use a macro lens (they had been forewarned) to be close to the subject. It could be flowers, veggie plants, grasses or an object of their choosing. From the comments, besides being too warm most had a good time. I look forward to leading more workshops.
