Is anyone else missing spring? I haven't been able to go shooting since I put my night pictures up. I was looking through some pictures and found these flowers. I hope they remind everyone of warmer times.
I promise, though, as soon as it gets warm, I'll start putting up current pictures.

Sometimes, the best shots are on the other side of a street. No problem, just cross the street. But when something like glass comes in between you and the ideal shot, things get a little more difficult.
Here are some of my attempts at shooting at an aquarium.
*These pictures were both taken at the Chattanooga Aquarium over the summer

This picture is from the Grand Tetons in Wyoming. The only thing that could be better would be if the left mountain was moved in to be in line with the bridge. But that wasn't how it was made. I think this little detail makes the picture more interesting.
John Loengard once said, "A Ming vase can be well-designed and well-made and is beautiful for that reason alone. I don't think this can be true for photography. Unless there is something a little incomplete and a little strange, it will simply look like a copy of something pretty. We won't take an interest in it."
I think that's very true. If the picture were exactly perfect we would skip over it. The little imperfections are often the things that make photos seem most beautiful.
