My Short Introduction

by Wesley Daniels February. 04, 2017 3040 views

Hi fellow photographers,

This is my first post and I want to say a little about myself and show a few of my favorite pictures.

I have been looking for ways to blog and share my pictures and I think this is the best place for that as I will be sharing with people who actually want to see it.

I have been a keen photographer since school and I started my working career as a sales assistant in Jessops (a UK photography retailer). I went a completely different route though and ended up as an engineer. Anyway, lets see a picture..

One of my favorite pictures of a couple overlooking Huairou Reservoir in Beijing

I should point out now that most of my pictures will be of Asia and predominantly China as I have been living in Beijing for 7 years. During this time I have been able to travel around a lot of Asia and this has bought the passion back and helped improve my photography.

I will do separate posts on these pictures as I believe they need some story to them but for now its just a little sample.

Sanya, Hainan. A Buddhist Temple in the Hawaii of China

I will also be starting my 365 blog today (better late than never) so I will be posting something Red later. 

One last picture for now then...

A traditional house in Honghu, Hubei, China.

Ok, so I think I will leave it there for now. I hope you have enjoyed reading and I hope you enjoyed the pictures. I will provide more (and hopefully better) posts in future with more detail as to what I was doing and what I experienced in the certain places.

Hope to see you soon,

Cheers,

Wes

Hi Wes! Welcome to PhotoBlog. Great pictures. I particularly like #1 and #2.
Do you teach in Beijing or something else? I taught in South Korea for 4 years,
Japan for 1 year, and China for 6 months. Asia is a big part of my life, as I'm
sure it must be for you too. Hope to see more beautiful shots from China!
Check out my post about Guilin in Guangxi province sometime. Cheers!

Thanks Ben. I am an engineer. Yes it has been a huge change to my life. Sounds like you had a great experience too. I love Japan too but have not been to Korea yet. I will check out your pictures.
Cheers

Thank you and I have - My biggest issue for now is I only use my IPhone 6, no real camera. But one day.....
However, I am having fun and really enjoying doing this.

#1 Stunning beauty! Absolutely love the composition, colors, and focus here.
#2 Love the symmetry and the human element.

Loved reading your introduction and seeing the stories you are capturing with your lens. Something is really special about the way you compose.

Thanks @admin that is nice to hear. I hope to share some better ones soon although #1 is pretty special. I will check out the forum too. Didn't realise

Hi Admin,

I am new to this blogging thing and I am trying to understand a few things. What I dont understand is if this platform can be seen outside of Photoblog.com? I know I can share my posts but can they be searched for? Can it be reshared? Can this site lead to a blog that would have subscribers outside of photoblog?

I hope you can clear these things up for me
