Snapshots of a self-taught photographer's photographic journey and process…"I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round, I really love to watch them roll… People asking questions lost in confusion, Well I tell them there's no problems, Only solutions…" –John Lennon
Hi Polly, I like your studies of rain…. especially the wet steps and railings. Nice perspective. It’s been like a monsoon here today.
Thank you so much! We sure did need the rain over here! It has been WAY too hot.
I found you! Considering a phone app, full site app, new technology and new blg space. Im getting it. Catching on. Working on my site, crunching in little bits of time. Here and there! I enjoyed the effect of your rain photo… I love foggy windows and foggy fields. Not that we had much of that lately. Right now we have dry crunchy grass! Looking forward to more photos!
Hey thanks! Sorry for the late reply! I couldn’t find where you commented! I knew it was here somewhere! I thought it was on my About page… so now, I found you! Thank you for taking the time to figure all the phone app stuff and for stopping by! I hope you will come back again. It is a pleasure to meet you!
You have a wonderful photostream, looking forward to future uploads. I have now subscribed to your blog.
Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog. Your Friend Lee
Hi! I stopped by as a result of your “like” on my post of the Fountain. If you’ll forgive an old man giving advice; you keep doing what you obviously love. It shows. Never quit or give up. You have both a talent & a unique “eye” for the image and telling the story. Do whatever you have to do to preserve that & you’ll never regret it no matter whatever else happens professionally. Looking forward to seeing another Georgian succeed.
I’m not going to forgive you because that was wonderful advice! Ha. Thank you so much for your kind words and support. It helps to hear encouragement because I don’t come from a family of artists or photographers who relate beyond the subject matter and “pretty” images. Thank you so much for your comment and feedback. I will keep on doing what I do :). Please come back agin!
Thanks for being my first “Like”. I like your artistic approach to photography. The camera is one of the great unsung tools for creating great art, and I’m glad you’ve recognized that. I’m based in Cincinnati but my fiancee lives in western NC and I visit the area every month. I’d love to know more about the great photo ops between Franklin, NC, and Atlanta on 441 (besides Tallulah Falls – I’ll get there one of these trips!). Thanks in advance for sharing.

Thank you so much! I have traveled to and from Franklin, NC so many times… When I was a little girl, I went a camp in Sapphire, NC. Tallulah Falls are wonderful… and so is the gorge :). Brasstown Bald… the highest mountain in Georgia. Helen, GA is a great place for photo-ops if you haven’t been there before… it’s like a little Germantown… very touristy but hilarious… and beautiful scenery surrounds the area. The North Georgia Canopy Tours, north of Gainsville, GA… is a great place where you can go zip-lining or just walk the trails… it is on an old farm but it is so beautiful there. I hope that helps some… if I think of anymore places I’ll let you know :). Happy travels! And thank you for the feedback!
A Dewy Abyss. .. Love it!

Hey – thanks so much for liking my ‘Seagull at Circular Quay’ post on thetravelmaverick.com!
Sure thang! Great post! 🙂
Thanks for liking us at Karma Creative. All the best with your photography. See if you can find a way to experiment with resin surfaces on your pictures. We find resin can really enhance a photography in sometimes surprising ways.
Great advice, Alex Williams! RIght along the lines of advice I shared on other post. Polly, I’m moving ever closer to opening my gallery… and I’m going to look you up.
WOW! Thank you oh so much for your kind words again! How incredibly awesome to open your own gallery… I took a look at your blog and website and was really impressed by your work and humanistic spirit. I hope you will look me up 🙂 Please come back soon!

thank you for dropping by my blog! i share the same story, i also hope to go professional someday.
your pictures are beautiful! i could immediately feel your sense of style, with just one look i was taken in.. 🙂
Hi – I enjoy that you are looking at the world with a naked eye. The photos of workers bring forth an interesting topic and one I hope you continue. Although you could get closer? I loved the broken window works. I intend to look at your work a lot. Glad you enjoyed my rambling 🙂
Thank you so much! I agree… I definitely could get in closer bit didn’t have a zoom because I was out of town heading to a tournament. Had to think fast :). I appreciate the feedback and thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you will be back 🙂
Love the work great job and wonderful blog. Glad you are continuing your studies…enjoyed the informative critique.
Polly, thank you so much for being my first ‘like’! You have a wonderful eye-keep up the good work!
Polly, thank you for taking a look at my Boyer Gifts. Since this is my new online store, I am hoping to network with a number of people who might like my photography, art and collectibles . If you have contacts that you think would like to shop online, please send them my website addres. http://www.boyergifts.com
I also have Boyer Writes on WordPress. http://www.boyerwrites.wordpress.com This may be where you found me.
I looked at your site. It is lovely and about you…It seems that you have a wonderful family and still working hard at your degrees. I had teenagers when I finished my Masters. It is no easy task. Keep up the good work.
Be careful about your children’s pictures online. I am protective of my grandchildren as I know you are…but heard recently of some new technology that can take a photo from a website and track a child’s location. You may want to look into that. Our children are precious to us.
Best wishes and blessings at Christmas. Nancy
Thanks so much for liking my post on the artwork of the incredibly talented artist Holly Farrell. I also love photography so I will stay tuned to your site. Learning how to take great photographs is on my list for 2012, but there are so many cameras out there!
