Some random thoughts on images and pictures . . .
Images are certainly something that attracts me to blogs. I like to see pictures of where the blogger is or has been. I also love pictures of classrooms. I like the colorful, elementary ones and the more “boring” secondary ones. I really love the pics of kids working with technology to do new, exciting things. I think images are a way to give my blog a KICK in the pants.
I think I have had a camera since I was eight years old. My first one was a simple Kodak Instamatic; I imagine that I took lots of “bad” pictures that my parents got developed for me. I also remember having a Polaroid and loving the instant prints. I had a 35mm during high school and college. Again, I took lots of pictures, not all of which turned out very well. I was, however, learning to be a good photographer by taking lots of pictures in the hope of capturing that one spectacular image.
Then, the onset of digital photography rocked my world. I could take an almost unlimited number of pictures and decide which to print or keep BEFORE spending any money. I absolutely loved this new development in photography. In fact, I love digital photos so much that I have almost crashed my HP laptop with all the pictures I have loaded. And I also have both a Picasa and Flickr account. Here is a link to my Fowler's Fotos 365 blog that made it until May 2010 and then I went back to work and it fizzled. Not that I have quit taking pictures, but I have quit posting them. I might need to pick that habit back up again. Here are some of my favorite pictures from 2010 that I have stored digitally on a computer that I can get to at the moment. Family, travel, and work are represented here.
