Experiment Number Two


A little bit of something.

A little more experimentation. A little more trickery in post production. And, a lot of red.

Once again, I combined something man-made with something found in nature. The component that was found in nature is easy to identify. It’s a tree. I’ll let you guess about the man-made object. It’s fairly common. But, I doubt many people think about it.

I’ve been wondering about something lately. I was talking to a new follower in comments. She said something about when she was “into photography.” I asked her why she stopped. She replied with the usual reasons which came down to “life got in the way.” This started me thinking about bloggers I haven’t read or seen in a long time. I went to my follower list and sure enough… about half the people that I follow haven’t posted anything in a six months to a year. That likely means, that they won’t blog again. I’m on the fence about removing them. One one hand, what does it matter if they are there? On the other hand, if they aren’t posting at all why not do a little spring cleaning?

What do you think? Obviously if you are still reading and still posting, you haven’t dropped out. Fair enough. But, why do you think others do? Or, don’t?

I get it.

This is kind of hard work. As much as I’ve streamlined the process, it’s still hard to post every day. This post is a little late today — my self-imposed deadline, not yours — not because I was busy with something else, but because I just didn’t feeling like doing the work today.

That’s happening more and more.

  1. I have wondered the same thing about going through my blogroll and making some changes. Every now and then someone I haven’t heard from in many months pops up. I admire the daily posting, Ray. I really enjoy blogging, both the sharing and the reading others, but it really is a challenge.

    I love the photo. Is the man made object a mirror or piece of glass? I can’t discern the white lines unless they’re a reflection. It’s a cool effect, whatever you used. πŸ™‚

    1. If I remove a blog for lack of posting, it usually has to be dark for 6-9 months. Sometimes if I really enjoy a blog I just leave it and hope it returns. I know that it’s hard to post daily or even weekly. Some days, it just about kills me. Luckily, I make pictures almost every day. The man made object is a car’s tail light.
