Picking through Picasa

As instructed, I began searching through the images on Picasa to find pictures that jump out at me. This was a LOT of fun for me because as a photographer myself, I spend a lot of time looking through other's photos. I'll limit myself here to only a select few, as I can literally spend HOURS blissfully browsing through photos.
I have a soft spot in my heart for photographing flowers (which I spend a great deal of time doing), so instead of searching through everyone else's favorites I decided to click on the tag "Flowers" and see what came up. This image grabbed me almost immediately. The composition is very interesting. Instead of shooting the flowers that most people normally would (from the top, of one of the flowers) this person chose a different angle.
Another incredible flower shot, and in a format that I love and intend to work on myself (black and white photography). This shot, to me, is very reminiscent of Ansel Adams.
Then, there's this one. What can be said about this that the picture doesn't already say for itself. Incredibly powerful journalistic/editorial style image. Something that I strive to achieve more of myself in the future.


  1. thanks for pointing out the incredible flower photos! The last one is very interesting and kinda haunting. You're doing a fantastic job@!
