This week we are asked to show what “path” means to us – the journey we’ve taken this year and/or where we hope to go in 2017.
January 1, 2017 is Photography in Pearls’ first birthday! I had just completed my first photography class and found a new passion. I took my camera everywhere and filled up countless memory cards saving all of my photos. I thought each was a work of art just waiting to be appreciated! And so eager to share, this blog was born.
I’ve been going through my memory cards and USB drives the last few weeks trying to organize them all and can’t believe some of the photos I saved! I still love them all (even the ones I deleted) but I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who took the time to visit my blog and offer encouragement. Each “like” is special. And I apologize for all pitiful posts!
For 2017, I’ll continue to carry my camera everywhere I go and share photos that are special to me. And I’m signing up to take a couple of photography classes this spring.
Today, while doing some last minute Christmas shopping, I was near Myrtle Beach State Park. I hadn’t visited since Hurricane Matthew so I made a quick decision to stop in and take a few photos. (Part of the pier was damaged due to the storm and is still closed off.) I was so surprised to see this egret walking up and down the pier! He had his eyes on the folks fishing – hoping for an easy meal and some obliged by tossing him a bait fish from time to time. He also did a lot of posing for me and I’ll be posting more of those photos here and on photographyinpearls.photoshelter.com
Sometimes you plan your path and sometimes luck guides you.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
