Smile! The world is a beautiful place (^_^)


Caleephotography is one year old today! (*^_^*)

Starting to blog and posting my pictures online was one of the best decisions I’ve made. In the past year I’ve come in contact with so many great people who’ve cheered me on and inspired me to continue. A big THANKS to you, because without you this blog would’ve lasted about one month instead of one year. I’m very grateful for all the motivation, inspiration, tips & tricks, likes and kind words in the comment field!

Today’s picture isn’t the kind I usually take, but after one year it was time to step outside my comfort zone.. So here’s a shot of the moon, taken handheld with my PS


f/6.5 – 1/160s – ISO 320 – 215mm

  3. Congratulations on reaching this milestone. A lot of folks don’t stick with a blog, but I am sure happy that you did. I have enjoyed your beautiful photos for a long time–it seems that we started about the same time, because I reached my one year anniversary a couple of weeks ago.You certainly posted a wonderful shot to celebrate. The detail on the moon in your image is amazing. Best wishes as you move forward into your second year.

    • Thanks so much, Mike! I think we started about the same time, and yours was the first blog I signed up to to follow. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m glad you’re still active, it’s a real treat to follow your clever posts with beautiful pictures. Here’s to another year for both of us *glass clink* ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • I’ll drink to that. Photography can be a solitary journey as we venture out with our cameras to capture a part of our world. It’s nice to know that there is a supportive community of like-minded folks, of fellow travelers to support, encourage, and inspire us. You do that for me and, I suspect, for countless others. Besides, we are members of the same family–we use Canons.

        • Well put, Mike! If I was as good as you are with words, that’s what I should’ve written in the post ๐Ÿ™‚ Sharing is definitely part of the fun. and yes, the Canon family and with similar interests also (bar the spiders!)

  14. They commented (on the radio news) about the moon being full — around now — and how it might affect people’s minds in a negative way. (Personally, i suspect that there are enough lunatics out there already!) ๐Ÿ˜‰

  17. I’ve watched a lot of bloggers come and go but it’s obvious you continue because you enjoy it – and have a steady hand to take photos of the moon without a tripod! Nice.
