I was having a conversation with someone recently who is very nice and polite about it, but doesn't really care for my style of photography; she's more into the 'realistic' style that's a little less colorful and soft, more along the lines of how things look to your eye. This of course, is a perfectly valid opinion; my taste happens to run the opposite. She did however, point out, that for her, my pictures just didn't look like 'photography'.

I thought about this for a while and I agree with her. The only reason I call the pictures I make "photography" is because that's the medium they are created in. They aren't digital art with pieces superimposed or hand-made additions or the like, they are just photos that were 'developed' in a digital darkroom instead of a film one. They just happen to be developed to my personal taste and style - colorful and often with just a bit of sparkle.

Whatever you call it - photography, art, blasphemy (haha) - thanks to all of you for all the kind words and comments of support over the last few years, it has really meant a lot to me. :)

This was another one of a series of photos I took at Nooksack Falls earlier this year. I always love winter, but looking back at my spring and summer photos is already starting to get me in the mood for spring wildflowers and baby animals. Overeager much?
