The love of taking pictures

Updated on November 5, 2011

Who doesn't love to take pictures!!?

I really love to do photography!!! Who doesn't ? I mean, I think that there is beauty in just about anything. Counted... I take one good picture out of 100 but I still can't stop. So here are some random pictures that I've taken here lately. Hope you enjoy them as much s I did taking them. And no I don't think that I'm the best at it but I guess I really want to know what other people think of my little hobby other than family. Those guys are biased so I know that they'll tell me that my pictures look cool even if they're not. So be honest please. Thanks. If anyone really is reading this.....

Ps. I made the last one my background.

      Awesome imagery, I think your a great photographer, which has suddenly became so obvious to me since I ran into your poem earlier that I've read about your son, which was cuter than ever to read.

      I also love how you extended the clouds image, that was a cool editing trick :)

      I think you have a career here with the use of imagery and photographs, I'm not sure if you've went professional with it at all, but it darn sure looks like your a pro.

      Yet another awesome hub you've shared with us. Thanks.

      Voted up for beautiful as ever and lets not forget awesome too.

      I real-ly loved that sky-stretch-water just kept beautifully going...the rocks and water are lovely and intriguing also. You must live near the ocean? Great photos!

      Your photos are awesome Mikie, I especially love the third one here with the pier in the background to the right. The depth of field is fine with only the mid ground in focus as this has allowed you to capture the waves so beautifully like in slow motion. I also love the last one - the melting rocks. Well done, love your work.

      I am far from a legitimate photographer. But I've always thought one of the marks of a great photographer is the ability to take an unremarkable subject and make us see something remarkable in it. I think you have done a good job of that here.

      I liked your pictures. I think maybe you need to work on depth of field a little, but nevertheless, these pictures have a beautiful mood and feel to them. Keep up the good work!
