Post em when you have em!

A quote from Ansel Adams:

The snapshot is not as simple a statement as some may believe. It represents something that each of us has seen -- more as human beings than photographers -- and wants to keep as a memento, a special thing encountered. The little icons that return from the photo-finisher provide recollections of events, people, and places; they stir memories and create fantasies. Through the billions of snapshots made each year a visual history of our times is recorded in enormous detail.

Rules and/or suggestions....

No minimum number of posts but try to keep it to no more than one a day.
No carefully set up set-up shots or studio portraits.
No well-calculated and executed landscapes.

DO enter everyday snapshots of your kids, your pets, your friends, your flower garden, your neighbor drinking beer, your vacation, your trip to the grocery store. Bonus points for stuff shot during the death hours of 10-2 outside, in full sun. DO remember that the lowly snapshot is the birth of modern affordable (more or less) photography for the masses. If it weren't for the lowly snapshot, none of us would have the nifty toys we have today. If you have a point and shoot, get it out and carry it everywhere. Snap away!

Editing rules - no editing rules. Resize and submit, or edit the crap out of it. All up to you!

Comments? Sure - we all love getting comments. But kindly relax the tendency to correct the technicals in this one. Feel free to react ("reminds me of my Aunt Grace's back yard when we were growing up"). No need to comment on every shot, of course, but do kindly try to at least VIEW every shot. Snapshots really do like getting a little attention, you know.


Tentative list, and it may be a running July/August theme we will see how it goes and how much interest there is.

Took my son out to my dad's tonight and set off some fireworks for him. They are illegal in the city limits and unlike the hoosiers around here we actually follow the law. LOL

I've been shooting the sports events for the YMCA where my wife works. Covered some 10-12 year old baseball last weekend. This one stood out to me.
