Welcome to my photo blog!

My name is Jonathan Harold, and I'm just discovering my life for the very first time.
The purpose of this blog, originally, was so I could speak my mind. But I realized that I never needed my own page to do that, just the courage to speak up.

For awhile this blog was totally empty, and I never added to it; since, I didn't have anything to say! But now I think that I could talk and talk and never be as clear as the thing I picture in my head. So then I got a great idea! Why not turn it into a place to share my pictures? :)

I started taking pictures a couple years ago, with black and white film...but...I just had too many lab disasters and I couldn't get into it! Black and white is nice but, my world revolves around the axis of color. (I have a bad habit of grabbing the "saturate" tool in photoshop and making my picture look like a truck full of bright finger paints crashed into a skittles factory.) I thought photo-taking just wasn't for me until I discovered digital about a year ago! I love it. Finally I found something I enjoy that I'm good at! :D

When people ask me if I'm a "photographer" when they see my camera on my shoulder, I kind of smirk and wonder "...what separates a normal guy taking pictures, from a 'photographer'???" Personally, I prefer to think of myself as a "sharpshooter." I exhale, look through my scope, and pull the trigger.
