Welcome to my photography blog, Picture Day. Here you will find an eclectic mix of photos from landscapes and macros to anything Disney. I began my journey in photography in the summer of 2011 with the desire to create better images of my trips to Walt Disney World. Those initial steps were the beginning of an obsession that is a very satisfying addition to my world.

I never dreamed that my desire to know more about my old point & shoot camera would lead to an activity that I enjoy so completely, even as I fumble through learning about exposure, composition, equipment and software. Β It has become a creative outlet for a technical ‘geek’ who thought his best creative moments were writing code and solving manufacturing problems.

This is the third blog/website I have created to help me record my journey/growth as a photographer. Β I do not have a specific topic or style so the posts will be random. Β I hope that as this site grows you will see improvements in both my photography and my writing.
