Going Shooting

This is the daily morning scene outside my office window. The Toms are strutting their stuff. The hens are pretty much ignoring them. This photo could have been better. You can see my flash bouncing off the window. The whole thing could be sharper, but you get the idea.

Wouldn't it be great if you could share your photos with me, too. Because these days, everybody is shooting. Ha! You didn't think I was going to shoot my turkeys with a gun, did you?? No way. When I go shooting, it's with a digital camera. Unfortunately, Blogger doesn't have an application for photo sharing. Yet.

Which reminds me of several years ago, when I noticed how popular picture taking was becoming and suggested a photography mystery series to my publisher. The response  - We've tried that in the past and it didn't do well.

Okay, but times change. Interests evolve. Themed series are big right now. Sure, the technology, the mechanics, cameras themselves change, but light, composition, subject matter, all stay the same.  What do you think as a reader?  Would a mystery series about a photographer appeal to you?
