Photography ~ What it Means to Me

This post means more to me than any of you will ever know.
It may not get the most views or be the most popular post on my blog.
But, for has been a long...long...long time coming!
I have taken the plunge into becoming a big kid.
Yep, no more point & shoot for me.
I finally have purchased my very first DSLR.
I am absolutely extactic about it!!!
I purchased the Canon Rebel T4i.
For as long as I can remember photography as had a special place in my heart.
One of my favorite childhood memories was of my Dad & I going to shoot photos on one chilly & brisk Autumn morning just before the sun came up, as the fog was lifting from the river.
I will always cherish that day.
Some things just come to you, almost naturally.
On that day I realized that I too had a gift & I knew just who I got it from.
Now, I am not a professional photographer or anything like that.
I have studied a bit, mostly on my own.
Truth be told , I just know what's in my heart.
{Photography is my Passion.}
It's one of the reasons I love to blog.
I get to share three of the things I love the most!
{Home, Smalltown Lifestyle, & Photos}
I have been really trying to improve my photography on my blog over the last year or so.
Especially in the last few months.
I have also taken back to rising early in the morning just before dawn to shoot,
just like Dad showed me many years ago.
It is one of the most resilient feelings in the world for me, completely at peace.
Over the next few weeks & months, I will share with you as I learn all I can about my new DSLR.
I hope you enjoy following my photography journey.
