Well here we are 2 months into 2014 and I have been dealt my first large dose of change. I can’t say that I am entirely surprised, there was a part of me that knew this could happen any moment for the last 3 years. However, surprised or not, it is hard to be fully prepared for change…that’s why it’s called change! The best I can do is be as ready as I can with how to process a life blip.
Different can be scary, and right now it is scary.
But, there is this other part of me, deeper inside me and not in my moment to moment thoughts, that knows this is good.Why? Because I value personal growth, rebirth, newness. Not in theory, but in reality and practical terms. I know that from this tearing down of my once manicured routine, I have the opportunity to reshape and rebuild – to grow. Sure I could have done this on my own before, but I didn’t. Now, I have been lovingly ‘kicked out the door’ to make this happen, ready or not.
Well, I’m ready.
This is not a crossroads. Full steam ahead into my great unknown.

Today I sold my first photograph and I couldn’t be happier! I was curious if the day would ever come when I would sell photos, well, that began on a small-scale today! The photo below is the one the customer bought, not a bad choice! 🙂 He purchased a digital copy, but through my portfolio (www.andybucknerphotography.com) you can order prints from professional print labs in varying shapes, sizes, and applications too. If you are interested in a digital copy, contact me directly.
Today is a good day! 😀
I have previously posted a different version of this photo in my set Adventures in Colorado.
I was looking for a photo to touch up tonight when I came across this shot. I love this shot but thought I did a poor job making it stand out in my previous efforts. I knew I could do a lot more with it than I originally did, so I took another crack at it. I think this version is much more interesting than the earlier version.
My day job recently took me to Colorado. During the down times in between appointments, I was able to take advantage of the beautiful surroundings I was in to snap some photos. Colorado is a beautiful state with amazing mountain peaks and rolling hills. I made it briefly into Wyoming for a few hours and was also impressed by the natural beauty. While in CO, I was able to travel around a majority of the state, which is why this post has some very differing photos – but that is also one of the reasons I like this group of photos quite a bit. The air was so crisp and fresh and I feel like I can take in a deep breath of the same when looking back at these photos. Enjoy the natural beauty!
