Why the start of the blog??
Well honestly, I get tired of taking so many photos and having them sit on my hard drive with no one to see them but me. Maybe this will be motivation to just take more photographs altogether. I really love it.. documenting my experiences. Sometimes my photos are not even technically correct, but I have captured the moment and there is something that I just love about that.
So I will start with a photograph that I did not take today, but it is a picture of a moment that I captured this summer, a moment that I am missing very much right now.
I took this photograph at the Augusta Rodeo in Montana. I traveled to Augusta with a group of friends from photography school. We all had the same intentions I think.. we just wanted to experience Montana at its fullest and practice some photo skills that we had been learning so far. Wow! Places like this still exist!?! It was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. I have been to a rodeo before in Pennsylvania.. but that was nothing compared to a true Montana rodeo.
The streets were dusty, the smell of barbecue was in the air, and if you weren't wearing a cowboy hat you stuck out like a sore thumb! Montana is full of precious places like this... The reason I call them precious is because of how rare these places are in the world now. I felt as if I had traveled back in time, and I got to take my camera with me!
