Dawno Recommends Some Blogs - Photography

If you love photography, I would like to recommend following Nikon Sniper's blog. I think his pictures are simply lovely and cover a wide variety of themes.

Another blog of beautiful photography is The Smitten Image - lots of pictures of the beauties of nature up in Canada and the occasional Jack Russell Terrier named Benny. I've been watching the seasons change up there through her photo essay posts.

On Live Journal user pecunium (Terry Karney) posts about his photography, he also has a website with an image gallery.

Since most of my photography consists of pictures of my jewelry and the occasional family photo, I've only otherwise got a few flower pictures I'm particularly proud of:

Flowers at a lovely nursery I visited when I met with a friend in North Carolina:

A blooming barrel cactus at the same nursery (which was more like a private botanical garden with flowers planted all over and walkways and little streams flowing through it.

Closeup of a teal colored flower (I was amazed that there was a teal colored flower anywhere so I had to take a picture - I'm very glad I did) on a plant at the UCLA botanical gardens (this one was right in front of the chain link fence between the gardens and the street, so it must be very hardy.

I used the pictures of the cactus and the teal flower to make calendars on Cafe Press in 2007 & 2008. Didn't make one for this year, though.

Do you have a blog to recommend for beautiful photography?

Aren't you so sweet! Thank you for the kind words and the linkage. I can't tell you how much I appreciate that.

I love your teal-coloured flowers. I've never seen anything quite like that either. Wouldn't that be an eye-catcher in a garden?

I'll have to check out these other two sites. Thanks again, Dawno.

My pleasure, you're very welcome!

Aw, shucks.

I don't know what to say... I've been feeling a tad guilty that all I've been doing of late is pictures (and not enough writing, even about photography).

I guess it's nice to be appreciated.

Yes, it is nice to be appreciated! And pictures are always good - not every post needs to have text. Thank you for sharing your art.
