I’m 51 years old. I already have so many unprocessed bird photos sitting on my hard drive that I doubt there are enough years left in my life to process them all, and add them to my website or blog. It’s easy to take photos! It’s FUN to take photos! It’s much less fun to process them all and DO something with said photos.
And now my son and I have a new hobby that we started last summer…rockhounding in the incredible areas near the Badlands of South Dakota. We certainly have found some beautiful pieces of agate, jasper, petrified wood, and other stones over the last year. The wonderful and variable patterns and colors just BEG a photographer to get out the camera…I can’t resist! As if I needed more unprocessed photos cluttering up my hard drive, now I’m also taking macro photos and photos of rocks and minerals, many of which will likely never see the light of day.
I’m trying! I’m trying to be more selective in what I shoot, both for birds and for rocks! And in an effort to at least get some photos of my favorite pieces out on my website, I have just recently updated the “South Dakota Rockhound” section of my website. Click on the following for photos of some of the pieces we’ve found over the last year. There are also some cool macro photos of other mineral assets we’ve acquired over the past year (for now, just a batch of Mexican Crazy Lace agate). As with the birding pages on my website, I’ll try to continually update the Rockhound site as I have time! For now, enjoy the new photos.
