Caddo Lake

  • Caddo Lake Sunrise

    When taking images of sunrises, you will need something interesting to capture the attention of your viewers. In this case, the beautiful clouds, the moss in the trees, the reflection of the trees, the sky, and the clouds on the water make this image light up!

When taking images of your pets, they can be candid, staged, or formal. Usually, you will need an assistant to help you with keeping your pet in place so that you can get a crisp, clear image of your pet. Treats and/or squeaky toys get their attention so that they are looking in the right direction.

“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” ― Ansel Adams


And it begins... 

Today is Monday, December 7,  2020

I am going to start my blog today - Out my window - will appear at least once a week.

I will share photography tips, nature images, and life lessons I have learned. 

Today is also a day of remembering. 

On December 7, 1941, Japanese planes attacked the United States Naval Base at Pearl Harbor External, Hawaii Territory, killing more than 2,300 Americans. The U.S.S. Arizona was completely destroyed and the U.S.S. Oklahoma capsized. A total of twelve ships sank or were beached in the attack and nine additional vessels were damaged. More than 160 aircraft were destroyed and more than 150 others damaged.

The following day, in an address to a joint session of Congress, President Franklin Roosevelt called December 7, 1941 “a date which will live in infamy.” Congress then declared war on Japan, abandoning the nation’s isolationism policy and ushering the United States into World War II.
