 USA: OLYMPIC NAT'L PARK...

PHOTOS COME AND GO IN A HEARTBEAT
... DON'T GET CAUGHT NAPPING!
 

I LOVE COLLAGES. THEY SOLVE A BIG PROBLEM FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS... IN THIS TIME-PRESSED WORLD, YOUR PHOTO VIEWERS WANT TO SEE YOUR BEST PIX, LIKE, RIGHT NOW!


USA / OLYMPIC NAT'L PARK: I FIND MYSELF, I THINK LIKE MOST OF YOU, IN NEED OF CALM IN OUR BUSY, CONFLICTED, CONGESTED WORLD. ON A RECENT MAY, 2019 CAR CAMPING TRIP TO THE USA WEST, WE SPENT A WEEK EXPLORING THE NORTHWEST TIP OF THE USA - THE OLYMPIC PENINSULA. LOOK ACROSS THE STRAIT OF JUAN DE FUCA - AND THERE'S VANCOUVER ISLAND, CANADA.

ONE MORNING WE TOOK OFF ON A HIKE ON THE PACIFIC BEACH OF THE PARK. LOOKING WEST IS HONG KONG! (OK,OK, OF COURSE YOU CAN'T SEE IT, BUT EVEN RIGHT NOW I'M THINKING POSIITVE THOUGHTS ABOUT THE DEMOCRACY PROTESTERS RISKING THEIR NECKS FOR...FREEDOM. YOU KNOW, THAT WORD WE ALL TAKE FOR GRANTED - UNTIL WE DON'T HAVE IT.) IT WAS SO INTERESTING, JUST EXPLORING AND EXAMINING A NATURAL LANDSCAPE SO REMOTE - THERE WAS NO CELL RECEPTION. GOOD GRIEF, CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT?

PRISTINE. THAT'S A WORD AND AN IDEA THAT'S INCREASINGLY HARD TO EXPERIENCE. BUT HERE WERE CLAMS AND CRABS AND... SAND DOLLARS (MIDDLE INSET PHOTO). OFF- SHORE WHALES WERE SPOUTING IN THE DISTANCE - AND WE FELT AT PEACE. THE 
DAY FINALLY ENDED 12 HOURS LATER WITH A LONG, LINGERING SUNSET - AND A SILHOUETE SHOT OF DEAD SNAGS...

EVERY DAY, I  HAVE TO SHARE PIX AND TELL STORIES WITH MY CAMERA HERE AT SAPHOTOSAFARI. I DO THIS PROFESSIONALLY, BUT IT'S NO DIFFERENT FOR AMATEUR SHUTTERBUGS. WE ALL WANT TO GET AS MUCH OF OUR WORK SHARED WITH FRIENDS AND INTERESTED PARTIES - AND COLLAGES ARE A BRILLIANT VEHICLE TO ACCOMPLISH THAT IDEAL. IF YOU DO YOUR COLLAGES WELL, PEOPLE WILL SMILE AT YOUR SKILL - AND MAYBE RELAX A LITTLE AS THEY WANDER INTO YOUR... REALITY. I MAY NEVER GET BACK TO THIS WONDROUS OLYMPIC PARK NATURAL SETTING... BUT I'VE GOT THIS COLLAGE FOR MY MEMORY BANK!

A FINAL TIP: MAKE SURE YOUR COLLAGE HAS A TIGHTLY SCRIPTED THEME, NOT JUST RANDOM SNAPS SEEMINGLY GLUED ON THE SAME PAGE. THEN YOU'RE AN ARTIST, NOT JUST A PHOTO JUNKIE, EH?



ALWAYS KEEP YOUR CAMERA READY, INCLUDING NECESSARY ADJUSTMENTS TO YOUR CAMERA SETTINGS... GREAT SHOTS ARE OFTEN GONE IN A HEARTBEAT!
