The Cloud Collector – Ebook Sneak Peek #1

image

Hi everyone!! I know it’s been awhile since I posted on my blog or in my social media. So here’s a quick post to share a sneak peek at a photo that will be going in the new ebook I’ve been working on. I have finally (I think) settled on a name for the ebook and I’m going to title it “The Cloud Collector”, due to my obsession with photographing clouds. I am in process of editing the final set of photos so I hope to get this ebook online before the end of December this year.

To stay up to date on it’s release (it will be a free download) please follow my blog, or connect to my facebook page at facebook.com/backwaterlakelife (please).  Also if you haven’t done so already, please go view/download (for free) my other ebook titled “Lifecam” that I put out in October this year.  It’s available at https://issuu.com/dtpiixart/docs/lifecam_0001_2016-10-04-tu_bartrams and is full of lifecam photos that were taken during a hike I took at Bartram’s Trail in Tuskegee, AL in October this year. Thank you as always for viewing my post and for supporting my work. Continue reading

Newsflash – Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

I caught some time at the library today and finished editing photos for my next ebook, except then I decided that I want the book to be bigger so I dug around on my phone and found more photos I can add to the book.

I know I’ve been saying I was working on a book, but I don’t really think I’ve said what the book is specifically… So, it’s about cloud gazing and is a collection of cloud photos I have taken along with some shots taken around Lake Harding. If you’ve followed my photography for awhile then you would know I’m one of those people with my head in the clouds all the time, so it makes perfect sense that I would put a photo ebook together featuring my cloud photography.

I haven’t decided on a title for the book yet, but I have an idea I think would work since I plan to make an ongoing series. It will probably take me a couple more weeks to get the editing done, but maybe not if I can force myself to just focus on getting the work done. I am getting anxious to finish it and get it up on my website. And…. since I mentioned turning this project into a series, I am actually out in my yard taking cloud photos right now as I write this which will be put into the second book. What can I say? I love watching clouds, and I love taking pictures of them.

About my other book project, “Fall Journey 2016″… Time is growing short for this fall season and I haven’t completed getting all the photos taken at all the locations I was planning on going to. I plan to try and get out this weekend to work on that project.

Well that’s all I’ve got for this update. Stay tuned for more of my work to be posted soon. My blog will be on hiatus for a little while until I can get some new posts scheduled. Continue reading

Cloud Gazing Post #1

image

Although it’s no secret by now I love watching clouds, I thought I would start posting some cloud gazing photos on my blog. I almost considered starting a seperate blog but I decided against it because cloud gazing is a part of my photographic interest and so it makes total sense to post my cloud gazing pictures here. I usually take several cloud photos almost every day however since my facebook page is automatically updated every day, I will only post one cloud gazing picture a day. The rest will be kept for publishing in my ebooks.

So for fellow cloud gazing friends out there here is my cloud gazing photo for today. The view is from my back yard. Continue reading

Newsflash – Saturday, November 5th, 2016

Hello! I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far. The weather is beautiful in Alabama today with temps in the 70’s and a slightly cloudy sky.

I am bringing you another quick newsflash with the latest on what’s going on with my photography and other things I’m doing.

1. My Photography – – – As you’ve noticed I have started posting new photos to my blog. These are being posted on Monday’s, Wednesday’s, and Friday’s. I chose to go from posting them 7 days a week to posting just 3 days a week because with my current and upcoming schedule I’m not able to do a new photo post every single day. This new format I’m running with will keep a fresh flow of pictures coming each week and allow me a little time to enjoy my weekends as much as possible. It will also allow me time to find other content to share with you since I like sharing things I see on the internet.

2. My Schedule – – – Both my personal and business life is about to get crazy busy through the winter months. I have really enjoyed this summer getting out and taking pictures with my new camera that I bought in June. This winter will be spent editing as many of them as I can get done when I’m not doing other things like my day job, working on my ebooks, organizing and cataloging my music collection, trying to practice some art if I can, and trying to get as much sleep as I can so I can keep up with all my work and play.

3. I downloaded a cool app today. It is the Google Arts & Culture app. I will be spending quite some time on it over the winter months learning about new artists and thier artwork. I am interested in picking out some new favorite paintings and put up some new blog posts about them over the winter and so on.

4. I blew out my hotspot limit for this month… so that will hinder me a lot on trying to get some editing done on my next upcoming Tweet Log newsletter. I guess I’ll have to keep my twitter activities down awhile so I can catch up as quick as possible when I am able to go to the library for wi-fi since my newsletter is built off of my twitter timeline. I’ll just have to focus on any editing work that I can do that doesn’t require being able to get online for content until my mobile phone service provider replenishes my hotspot limit.

Well that’s about all the news (rambling) I have for now. See ya in the next newsflash. Continue reading
