WordPress weekly photo challenge: Thankful

Zazzle online shop If you enjoy my photos and would like to purchase some, I want to thank you! Simply visit my Zazzle online shop and browse the product offerings. If there’s a photo you would like to purchase but don’t see it in my shop, please contact me by using the Contact form at the bottom of my home page and let me know which photos you are interested in purchasing, and in what format / medium.

As a photographer, I am thankful for my two digital cameras, both Canon Powershot models. If I had plenty of money at my disposal, I’m sure I’d have a few more cameras, along with tons of accessories. But for now, I’m thankful for what I have because these two cameras allow me to capture a few glimpses of the nature around me, such as the images below. Make sure you click on each image to see a larger photo.

I’m thankful I can take dozens of photos of sea jellies and actually get a few decent pictures. If you’ve ever tried taking photos of jelly fish, you know what I’m talking about!

I’m thankful I could take a photo of this beautiful blue dragonfly. Do you know that dragonflies can fly for hours without resting?

I’m thankful I was able to take a photo of this very cute pigmy goose at the San Diego Safari Park last week. Look at its beautiful colors!

Finally, I’m thankful to once in a while be able to spot nature’s life cycle, in this case a mourning dove sitting on its nest and not moving a feather.

Finally, I’d like to add that I’m thankful for WordPress allowing me to display my photos to the whole wide world for free, with just a few clicks of the mouse. That’s pretty awsome. Thank you, WordPress!

  1. I thought of you while I was in Colorado over Thanksgiving, because while I was at Red Rocks, I had to snap photos with my iPhone. It didn’t do the place justice. 🙂

    • The camera sensor in the iPhone isn’t that bad but it still doesn’t beat using a real digital camera where you can adjust a few settings. Better than nothing, though!

  2. Yes! And you take beautiful photos! I am a storyteller, but found myself so drawn to photography that through WordPress I have found new ways to tell my stories, with visual aids! I too am thankful for that. You have a great talent!

    • Thank you very much! I love how the right picture can enhance a story. One great example is the book The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick (the movie Hugo is based on it). It’s a very unique way to combine pictures and words to tell a story.

      Thanks for stopping by and feel free to come back anytime.

      • My son is a graphic artist, and he says he has heard of that, even checked it out from the library, but didn’t have a chance to read it before it was due. You have renewed his determination to be sure to read it. I will keep in touch.

        • I bet your son would love it. Selznick alternates between using words and using images to tell the story. When they tell me pictures are worth a thousand words, you really understand it when you read this book. You should read it too, it’s a beautiful story!

I'd love to hear what you think about my photos. Please leave your comments below.
