The value of humor in the life of the photographer

I’m greatly enjoying life back in California’s photographically rich environment and connecting with fellow photographers- they are a great bunch of people!

 It is said that laughter is the best medicine. It is in that vein that I submit the following. :)

I learned a few lessons on my first beach photo walk a few weeks back that might prove helpful should you find yourself with such an opportunity: Continue reading »
