We’re enjoying spring here in Adana
On my parent’s recent visit, my father and mother visited the university where my sister works. As my dad was going for a walk around campus, a foreign teacher walked up to him and said “You look like a fish out of water.” It was one of the great quotes of their visit. I thought this photo from our visit to Syria expressed that sentiment even better.
I loved this graffiti that I noticed the other day. It combines the international symbol for anarchy with the Turkish word Çar?? (pronounced Charsha), which means “downtown” or “city center”. I thought it was hilarious.
I saw this truck driving down the highway this morning.
Ya think they coulda fit any more bundles of cotton on this truck? You really can’t appreciate how big of a load this truck had on from this photo. It looked like the load was 4 times the size of the truck.
Have you ever wanted to learn more about how to take good photographs? You know, the kind of photo that people notice as actually having artistic value. I don’t believe I’ve come to that point yet, but I will say that everything I’ve ever learned about how to take a good picture has come from this website featured on BBC’s website.
This short tutorial by Tom Ang gives tips on how to position a shot,lighting, color, landscape, photographing people and being ready to shoot. I’ve taken time to read one section of this site at a time, and find that the tips are extremely helpful. It’s helped me on a small scale to think like a photographer and to start developing it as a skill.
Coming across this page reminded me of how much I miss having my camera with me. It’s been out of town for repairs. Hopefully I’ll be taking pictures, and learning as I go, again very soon.
