Wish You Were Here

What an incredible storm we happened upon yesterday!! We were only looking for the mini yellow sunflowers out at Monahans Sand Dunes park but found this storm, watched it build, watched it turn into an incredible sunset and then...of course, Mother Nature gave us a light show that was not to be beat!! It was amazing!

Wish You Were Here

It was amazing!


Some information about Self Portrait Sunday (which you all should join in on!!)

Taken from +Lotus Carroll because she says such things best...
"Everyone is invited to share an image - join us in capturing a current self portrait!

Theme: No theme this weekend, so you can do whatever you want! :-D

Please read this post for the guidelines and FAQ for Self Portrait Sunday: http://goo.gl/yKA6x9
(For “old school” participants, please note that this has been recently revised!)

We are no longer using Events, as they are being phased out and we need to keep this working for everyone. We have a Self Portrait Sunday Category in the ASP Community, and going forward, we’ll make all posts and entries for #selfportraitsunday to that category, which can be found here: http://goo.gl/HJuATd (If you are not a member of the Community, please request to join so that you can participate - it’s easy to join and we are happy to have you!)"

So here is the deal on the Self Portrait Challenges and Self Portrait Sundays.... Make sure you check it out and join in, even though we are working out a new way to do them without the events here on G+. It is too bad those are going away.
SELF PORTRAIT CHALLENGE & SELF PORTRAIT SUNDAY - NEW SUBMISSION PROCESS

Google+ is doing away with Events as we now know/use them, and so we’ve been trying to find a way to keep running our Monthly Challenges and our Biweekly Self Portrait Sundays.

Going forward, I’ll be publishing a Public post on my personal account with details about the Theme & Rules for the Monthly Challenge which I’ll also share to the appropriate category within the Art of Self Portraiture Community so it can be easily found and referenced there. I’ll also send a reminder to a limited circle that I used to invite to these events (if you ever want to be removed from or added to that circle, just tell me and I’m happy to oblige).

If you’d like to enter our monthly challenges, just post your entry to the “Challenge Submissions” Category in the Art of Self Portraiture Community (can be found here: http://goo.gl/VbVTm4). If you’re not a member, you just have to join the Community to post, which is easy and we are happy to have you! Art of Self Portraiture Community: http://goo.gl/M7XTQ

We do have a public Event published already for this month’s Challenge, which you can find here: http://goo.gl/xaay5y and you are welcome to enter there. We will also be accepting submissions in the Challenge Submissions Category starting this month.

We also have a Self Portrait Sunday Category in the ASP Community, and going forward, we’ll make all posts and entries for #selfportraitsunday to that category, which can be found here: http://goo.gl/HJuATd I’ll be sending out reminders for those in posts, as well, to a curated circle. As with the monthly challenge circle, just let me know if you want me to add or remove you.

We are going to keep at all of this for as long as we can on Google+, but you should know that we’re also doing these events on FB in order to provide access to as many people as possible. Any and all of you are welcome to participate in both/either places.
FB Page: https://www.facebook.com/artofselfportraiture
FB Group: https://goo.gl/WBnqpB

You can also circle +Art of Self Portraiture for information and updates, and subscribe to updates from our website to keep yourself informed about what’s going on. http://artofselfportraiture.com

Time Fell Away

I haven't taken a self portrait like this in about 13 months or so... and I haven't posted here since February. I lost my inspiration, my mojo, my get up and go just got up and went without me. Lately though, I have been feeling it again.

This wasn't inspired by a song, more of a feeling... Serendipity actually. I think of Serendipity as a female "something"...like a muse or a goddess type of chance. She told me to tell you hi. ;) And if you haven't heard the song before, take a listen. It's worth it.

Song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHlFwfoO4K4

Lyrics:
All of my regret
Will wash away some how
But I can not forget
The way I feel right now

In these small hours
These little wonders
These twists and turns of fate
These twists and turns of fate
Time falls away, but these small hours
These small hours, still remain
They still remain
These little wonders
These twists and turns of fate
Time falls away
But these small hours
These little wonders still remain

Storm chasing is so awesome... I got my hubby hooked on it!  :D

I can't wait to check out the storms across the midwest in a month!!!
I don't really have any new photos so I am going to start posting some older stuff until I get a chance to go out and take some new ones.  If you've seen them, I hope you enjoy the rerun.  If you haven't seen them before, then I hope you enjoy them for the first time.  

One of the things that really got me hooked on photography was chasing summer monsoon storms with lots of lighting in Arizona. At first, I would go with my wife, +Tamara Pruessner , and sit in the truck counting the minutes while she took photos.  Then one time I decided to try it out and I was hooked from that moment.  Every since then I have really enjoyed going out and trying to capture photos.

Slip Away

Sooooo... I figured I should show some more photos.  Or something.  Maybe stay a while here at G+... I miss all of the friends I've made here.  I should definitely dip my toes back in the water.  (LOL!!)

CONTEST CONTEST!!!!!!!!!!


Ok, I am resharing this and sharing directly - so some of you might actually get this twice.  If you do, I am sorry (it just means that I doubly love you and you're in more than one circle... LOL!)

Anyways... today is the last day to enter a contest for one of my prints, an 11x14 print.  Please check out the Instagram post and join in!  I would love for everyone to get the opportunity to win a print.  If this first contest goes well, I will do another one...only hosted here on G+ (that way my G+ friends who don't want to mess with Instagram, get a chance too!)

Hope to see you there!!!

Did I get your attention??  I hope so!! (I am also notifying people because, dangit, G+ seems to have me on some sort of blacklist.. guess I should stop by here more.)
