My Favorite Photo Blogs

Do you ever wonder how some people consistently take phenomenal photographs where the color is superb, the focus is so crisp and the subject is very eye captivating? I know I have! There are some blogs out there that I go to just to see the photos. My first experience was with a fellow blogger Le Nightowl. Now Le Nightowl is no longer with as a blogger but I still become captivated by her photography at her own website. I am sure that Lone Grey Squirrel remembers her as well as many other bloggers do from back about a year ago and all would no doubt remember her as a great photographer from France.

Currently, one of my favorite photo bloggers is Becky. Though she has not been taking very many photographs recently for reasons she has explained in her blog, I have always been amazed at how she has consistently taken great photos. One of the newer blogs for me that comes to mind is Sandy's blog. The creativity she puts into her photos are stunning!

There are a number of other photo bloggers that I regularly visit as well and I am constantly amazed at how beautiful their posts are. I must admit that, though I would never use them or pass them off as mine, I often copy them to my hard drive for inspiration on my desktop.

So... Maybe one day I can consistently come up with outstanding photos myself but none-the-less, for the time being, I do try to take some fairly neat ones. Though not consistent, I do have a few which I am proud of.

I have recently transferred from Flickr to Photobucket (not because I wasn't satisfied with Flickr) and decided to experiment with uploading my photos to my blog. So... if you have a few moments, please check them out.

Another blogger I visit is Andfre from Andreville. He lives near Banff and takes some amazing pictures. Check out his link sometime and let him know I sent you.

I remember Le Nightowl. I loved her stuff, both both times that she disappeared and I clicked on her site, my computer crashed. I love your slideshow stuff on the last post! That's great photography.

I think you take excellent photos!
By the way, I posted 'my' bench today!

My pictures are seldom great, like the pictures I took on my new years trip. But that doesn't stop me from taking them and posting them to show others what the area is like.

Ah, Squirrel misses the late night chats with Le Nightowl. But Dave, your photos aren't chicken feed either...they are pretty good. I like the amber colored night shot you have in the slideshow.

Hey you put wonder and curiosity in my head then never answer the how and why! Come on I wanna know how DO they get them colours so brite/etc

I know sometimes it's as simple as livin' in the tropixx and picking up good ole tropical sunshine!

There are some very talented photographers out there that's for sure.

Sandy said...

Dave, thanks so much for the thumbs up from you. That is so great. I am so glad you listed those other blogs cause I will bookmark them and take a look.

I haven't been photographing as much as I use to because I am trying to draw/paint an image a day so I'm not getting out as much with my camera. But, I am so appreciative of your comments.

I enjoy your blog too and you know why? You write such thought provoking posts, from the heart. One can recognize a wonderful soul. I love your photos but it is your writing that keeps me coming back.

What a wonderful compilation of photographers you have here! Thank you for sharing. I must say though, your pictures are often as stunning as any. I hope you will link to your photobucket account somewhere on your sidebar...hint,hint:)

It's amazing what some can do with even an average camera. I can't seem to get the hang of indoor pictures at all. Most of my favourites though are outdoor anyway.
I'm not blog tech-savvy and don't even see where I should click to see your pics!

Thanks for visiting Country Captures, perhaps someday I too will join your list of mustsee photoblogs :)

I'll be back to have a look around when time permits.

I did check you photos out, and they're wonderful. I remember some of them from your previous posts. Very nice, Dave.

I take a lot of photos, but I need to get a better camera to post hi resolution pictures on my blog.
