Autumn Trees


I am absolutely bummed that not a single person has responded to my offer for creating Fall Portraits! Please see offer by visit this link – Lunchtime Photo Sessions. Well actually, one person responded saying it was a good idea, making it seem like she might be interested. I contacted her with more details but I never heard back regarding. I’m absolutely devastated about this missed opportunity, and the missed opportunity to work with others to find some great images during this Autumn Season. I mean, I absolutely love conducting photo sessions, but I seem to never get the opportunity.

Fact is, I’m not getting very much response at all regarding any of the blogs I post? I’m really trying to figure out where to go from here. Any feedback would be appreciated? I mean, here on WordPress, from other WordPress members, I receive a small number of likes on my posts, but nobody ever visits? The total number of visits to my blog on a daily basis averages around 10. The average number of “likes” I receive could be somewhere around twice that. And, nobody ever “Shares” my blog posts. I’m trying to figure out how one can like a post if they’ve never been there to see the post? Maybe WordPress isn’t the best place to facilitate a blog? I’m not sure? My blog just seems to have gotten lost in the WordPress fodder.

I’m convinced that I’m a fairly decent photographer, definitely not the best out there in the World, but aren’t I better than to be subjected to an average of 10 viewers per day? Any feedback that can be given that could shed some insight would be greatly appreciated. Would love to become a featured blog on WordPress, but I guess the chance of that happening are fairly slim?

Well, that’s my rant for the day! These days I’m outdoor finding images of Autumn. In my travels I’ve created some pretty interesting images of trees and leafs changing colors. Today I want to feature some trees I’ve come across. The images above are of a Paperbark Maple Tree, a Red Oak Tree, and a Birch Tree. Hope you enjoy, sorry for my rant, and please share.

Peace

Tree Comparisons


In my last post I featured some abstract images of a pool of water that I created a few Summer’s ago along the Eagle Creek Trail in The Columbia River Gorge. With this post we travel a few miles South, about 60 miles South to be exact, and feature an organism for which water provides sustenance. The two images in this post are of the same tree, in two different seasons – Winter and Summer. I like the comparison of this mighty Oak Tree fully dressed in it’s Summer outfight and completely naked. This tree grows in a field, and while it’s somewhat alone (if you look closely, there’s a second tree behind the first). And actually as part of the illusion that I love about photography, these two trees are actually part of a whole grove of might Oak Trees that grow on both sides of this tree. While, the whole scene is very beautiful and serene, this tree captured all by itself still encompasses some of that beauty.

I hope you like this Tree Comparison too? Vote in the poll above or comment/like below. Thanks for stopping by this week.
