The Stories Behind My Three Most Popular Images

My three most popular images - based on views - probably don't have a ton of views or likes in comparison to some of the more established, well downloaded images you can find on this site. Some of the photos here absolutely blow me away, and make me want to find great shots like them. But, with only about a month of solid trying behind me, I have had a few images that got a good number of views. I'd like to share with you how each of those images came to be. Young Girl With Vivid Orange Flowers... continue reading

What I love about photography

When I go out to take shots of nature, I try to look for the unusual, strange patterns in dirt or sand, the roughness and patterning of bark that has peeled away or wood that has been marked by water or weather and strange bugs.

I often see ladybugs... continue reading

A few days ago I uploaded a few pictures that I took in the Stirling Range National Park, Western Australia. And was surprised that they were already sold after just one view.

Probably the world's strangest border!!

 Ever seen those famous pictures of a nice café lying just right to the Belgian-Dutch border, noted by a row of crosses? Well this place is no hoax and is located in the Dutch province of North Brabant but is a bit more complicated than simply the "Dutch-Belgian border".So inside the Netherlands there are a few pieces of land that are actually Belgium (exclaves). Most of them are located some 5km from the Belgian border but a few are further inside. They belong to the Belgian Baarle-Hertog... continue reading
