Ten Reasons to Take Your Camera Everywhere - Part 2

Are you ready for Part Two? Have you been taking your camera with you more? Here are five more reasons to take your camera everywhere, even the grocery store:

Top Ten Reasons For Taking Your Camera Everywhere

  1. The Sweet Light of Sunset - What do you do when your dog insists on walking in a certain direction? Well you follow his lead of course:) Well maybe not but sometimes it can lead to a good thing. My puppy was determined to go in the truck instead of walk around the block. Of course it may have had something to do with the fact that I had earlier driven the truck so now it was his turn. Whatever the reason we decided to go with the flow and took our evening walk at the local forest preserve. My reward was some photo opportunities I would have totally missed. Like evening sunset reflecting off the lake. And one beautiful shot of the evening sun shining on a fence. The greens and golds were absolutely fabulous. Imagine how bad I would have felt if I hadn't quickly grabbed my camera as we left the house. Thank you puppy. (Oscar, our puppy is actually three years old and a major joy in our life right now.)

  2. Flowers At The Grocery Store - Who takes their camera to the grocery store, right? Well I really don't go that far ordinarily but on this particular day the visit to the store was a side trip. We had puppy with us so I opted to stay outside and wait. And what was outside? The greenhouse selling every flower you can imagine. This was an opportunity to get pictures of flowers I may never see anywhere else.

  3. Swans at Work - There are times when I venture into the work force doing jobs for temporary agencies. It is a great way to stay in the public eye not to mention the joy of bringing in a little extra cash. One such assignment I was working in a huge corporate office. They had a lake in the back with a path you could walk during breaks. In that lake they had two of the most beautiful swans as part of their nature rescue program. These swans would breed and the new arrivals are taken to new homes each year. No camera means I only have the memory of this story.

  4. Pet Pictures at The Dog Park - A real opportunity abounds at your local dog park. When you take your puppy to the park to socialize him with other dogs why not take that camera with you. You would be surprised at the opportunities to take pictures of people and their pets. If you love animals this is also a great way to get your name out their as the local pet photographer.
  5. A Prize From Your Pet - You never know when your dog is going to surprise you with a gift. Like today I dropped my dogs leash and he was off like a shot into the nearby woods. He emerged just moments later with a ground hog in his clutches. The animal was nearly as big as he is. And he wasn't very happy after we made the dog drop him. Where is that camera when you need it?

See you next time when we explore Macro Photography. Have you ever wondered what that little flower on your camera means? Well be sure and look for Nature Tales next issue as we explore the art of Macro Photography and dig a little deeper into that little flower's usefulness.

I received a post from one of my readers that got me to thinking. He wrote:

I have never written to you before. I don't know why. I actually purchased my first SBI! in 2004, but quit about two years ago, and now I am back with another project. I keep getting your newsletter since then, and I see that you have reached # 24 in a row, which sets an example for me, and I'm sure for many other entrepreneur-wanna-bees. Two years of hard work. (Actually, I'm not sure yet if the newsletter is monthly, sorry)Just wanted you to know that I enjoy your newsletter very much, and I wanted to congratulate you on your effort and perseverance. I am sure you are, by now, very succesful. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to the next issue, best regards.

First of all, I want to say thank you for your kind words. I love to hear from my readers. And it really feels great that you are inspired in your own business endeavors.

By the way, it is no wonder you are not sure of my newsletter time frame. I actually did start out publishing once every couple of months. Then here recently I tried once a week. That scheduled seemed too frequent. So to all of my readers, the publishing frequency of Nature Tales shall be twice a month. I would love to hear from you. Let me know how the photography tips are working. Let me know if you have issues that you would like for me to cover.
