Photography Efforts

First of all, let me tell you that I have a Fuji Camera that I bought a few years ago at Walmart and it was under $160.00. I love it because it is simple. I am not now, nor ever have been a "professional photographer" but do like trying to take photos that are pleasing to my eye - and yours. I don't have a "smart phone" either, so what I have is what I use - no fancy lenses, no attachments, just a hobby.

Last year I submitted about 15 or 16 of my photos to our local TV station for a weekly slide show of photos from area residents. WNEP covers 20 counties in the northeast and upper regional area of Pennsylvania. The station receives around 100-150 submissions a week.

Much to my surprise, through 2019, I have had 12 of mine chosen to be part of the shows. THEN, just today, there was a review and 3 of mine were again featured. Talk about an ego pump... yes, I have one today.

I started submitting a couple once in a while several years ago, but only a few were ever used.

Here are today's selection. They are my screen shots from the 2020 January 4 lookback shows. Parts 1 through 3 were gardening, crafts, and foods.

I had a Snapfish soft cover small photo album made of the 12 that were used in 2019. Just a memento from me to me. 
As you can see, the change of seasons thrills my eye!


  1. Congratulations! I would be thrilled to have photos chosen for this honor. The album is a well deserved little prize!

    1. I feel like an old hen with her chest puffed out! Suck it in, Gere, suck it in!

  2. Wow, awesome! Great shots and good for you for submitting them.

    1. I don't think great but pleasing and I'm lucky to have eyes to see them.
