My photography

Evolution

Who invented the camera? Johann Zahn designed the first camera in 1685. But the first photograph was clicked by Joseph Nicephore Niepce in the year 1814. It was thousands of years back that an Iraqi scientist Ibn- al- Haytham made a mention of this kind of a device in his book, Book of Optics in 1021. Courtesy of; Google and whenwasitinvented.org

I am opening this category with the evolution of the camera, for obvious reasons. It is mind boggling how the camera went from something so large, bulky, and awkward, to end up in a small rectangle screen that fits in your pocket. The possibilities of any type of modern day camera are limitless and with a good editing program you can turn a mundane picture into a classic work of art in a matter on minutes. All of my pictures that I will post here are taken with my Canon EOS Rebel T6. I may from time to time take pictures with my iphone 7 plus, but if that ever happens, it will be marked as such. 856EFD40-284F-4B8C-9397-F5CBACD24C8A

When it was coined; “A picture speaks a thousand words”, that couldn’t be more true. With every picture I take I always ask myself, “What can this one moment in time say or what can this spark in the mind of the person who is looking at it?” If I can answer those questions, that is when I know the picture is perfect for the taking. Granted I am an amateur photographer, but my heart and soul go into every picture I take so that has got to count for something.

History behind this picture;

Located in the middle of a ordinary neighborhood, in Spring, Texas right outside of Houston is a place called Wunderlich Farm. From the moment that you step out of the car, it is as if you are transported back in time to the late 1800’s. On the property sits 6 buildings, all of which are a museum within themselves. Wandering thru each building smelling the old wood rotting, the creaking of the old floors, the dust in the air, the musty remnants of what use to be come rushing over you. The picture above was taken in one of those museums located on the farm property, open to the public, and we are encouraged to take pictures, so I was in heaven. Each camera tells such an amazing story of what “use to be”, who used it, how many great family memories were captured with it, or how many heartaches were captured with it. The possibilities are endless and so are the questions, and that is why I love photography, there is no end, no finality, it goes on forever to make people smile, to make endless people happy.

Hi there! I'm Beth and this is my life and my little corner of the world. Some would call this a "lifestyle blog" and it is to a point, but it is for all who struggle with the daily whirlwind of life. The ones, that just need a someone to identify with. Someone that understands when all is against you, maybe even a place for a quick escape, even if only for a moment. This blog will cover such a wide variety of things that at times it won't make sense, but in the end it all will tie together, maybe not "perfectly" but it will all tie together. I am a mother of two amazing, grown boys and a Nana to the best little 6 year old boy anyone could ask for. I am also a wife of over 2 decades....TO THE SAME MAN! 😂 He is one of the most wonderful and most brave man I have ever met....and the one who will put up with me. I struggle sometimes, life gets hard, life is depressing, overwhelming, and sometimes everything seems to go all wrong, but in the end it's all about your attitude and how you deal with it. Nothing is perfect no matter how bad you wish it to be. I am not perfect, neither is my life, nor is this blog, but I hope along the way that you find at least a moment of peace within my writings. Please feel free to contact me, leave a comment, or just follow along and read at your leisure, whatever makes you comfortable. Thanks for visiting and happy reading. ❤📕
