A couple of weekends ago, we set out to visit our friends and fellow kayakers Alex and Jean, who are also fellow bloggers at 2 Geeks @ 3 Knots (check out their lovely blog!). They live in New Rochelle, just outside New York City, and just off Long Island Sound.
Heading out to the Sound on a summer weekend is pretty typical for New Yorkers.
What’s a little less typical is getting there by kayak.
But hey—we’d been there quite a few times before and knew the route pretty well. And this time we’d have the luxury of spending the night with our friends—so we’d have the chance to explore more than we usually can on an out-and-back trip. We’d been eagerly anticipating this trip for several weeks.

In our last installment of the Photography 101 series, Matthew George at Photo Lord introduced us to the fundamentals of focus, including depth of field and aperture. Today, photographer Lynn Wohlers at BLUEBRIGHTLY walks us through the basics of point of view, or POV, building on some of the big ideas Ming Thein introduced in his photography overview at the beginning of this series. Lynn illustrates how you can take photographs that show your own perspective — and unique way of looking at the world.
Wanderings, observations, and visual treats — that’s the essence of what I try to provide on my blog. I’m a visual person and I’ve had a camera handy most of my life, using it to document my observations as well as experimenting with it as an artistic tool.
