Photography Bucket List .... Started.

bucket-list.jpg

Lists are good for a lot of reasons. A photographer’s bucket list of places, people, events, and things to photograph is important to help keep us inspired. Seek out new places. Explore.

I will be publishing blog posts in the coming weeks and months from this years trips which included Smith Rock State Park, Crater Lake National Park, Silver Falls State Park, and other trips are still being planned before the end of the year.

I started writing down my bucket list a couple weeks ago and its just going to keep growing. I will be starting with focusing on some of our great National Parks in the U.S. and then expanding out from there.  The goal is to cross off at least 2 or 3 items from the list each year and to keep adding to the list at the same time. Suggestions welcome.
