I set up this photo blog in the hopes that I can inspire myself to get back into the habit of taking pictures.  I started taking photographs a few years ago and since garden blogging has taken so much of my time I've noticed that I don't really enjoy taking photos for the fun of it anymore.

Once upon a time I took a lot of photos and photography was my creative outlet. I even managed to get one published in a photography magazine. Lately I feel like it is more of a chore since I have to take photos to accompany my garden blog and I hate that I feel like this about my first love.

I'll try to label the posts with the make and model of the camera I used to take the picture because people always seem to want to know what camera is being used.

The photos here will cover anything I find interesting and could be nature-related or other things I find interesting that have nothing to do with nature. I'd add these photos to my garden blog but I notice that I'm quickly running out of storage space there. I'm not sure how often I'll be uploading photos here after I edit some I want to post. 

These photos were/will be taken in an around the city of Chicago,  IL.

I watermark all of my photos because they're mine. If you'd like to use a photo of mine ask and we may come to an understanding that we're both happy with.

Feel free to use the field below to make a comment on a blog entry or introduce yourself or your garden blog. You can always use the search box for my blog or the search engine "Google For Gardeners" if you're looking for gardening information. I've got a new blog about gardening in Chicago at ChicagoNow.com. Stop by and visit Chicago Garden. The two micro stock photo sites I currently use are; ShutterStock and Big Stock Photo. If you're a photographer looking to get into selling stock photography or a designer looking for inexpensive royalty free images, I recommend those two sites.

Thanks for visiting.
