Photog Ave

I'm Avery and I am an amateur photographer, 15 to be exact. And yes, my name is also Avery!

I have a blog that I update every weekday. Avery began following me, and I began following him. Then he invited me to post on his blog. So here I am.

I took this picture in Venice, Florida, during a sunset, and this happens to be one of Avery's favorites.

I look foreword to many more contributing posts,


Interesting Edits

So I was just messing around with some i-photo settings/edits and I really like these four images. The first two, I put the exposure at its highest and then raised the contrast which makes the sky very white and the raven on top of the roof very black.

Anyways enjoy~!

A Long Bike Ride = Some Fishin'!

My friend and I biked a bit to get to a place called Silver Lake, Brighton. Located at the back of Big Cottonwood Canyon, Utah. I really enjoyed the nice reflection of the sky. I didn't enjoy the bugs that were attacking me.

Moose sightings are common here. We got about 10 feet from a bull, but he was hard to see because he was in some bushes, but still a great experience.

The Dock

There is something about this marina that I love. I had such a great time shooting here. The 4th is my favorite though. I love how the sky just changes from a dark to a light. I love all of these though.

Catching, Not Just Fishing

Typically, when we we do it, we call it "fishing" as there isn't a lot of "catching." Nice when it goes our way. Few things more satisfying to a little boy. Captured with iPhone.

I'm trying to make a calm, relaxing music playlist. Any ideas?

When my friends saw this picture they said "Why weren't you wakeboarding on this perfect water?" I laughed. Some of these were taken at 4:30 in the morning.

Lake Powell

I have been in Lake Powell for the last week with family and friends. What a blast! And I have arrived safely (thank the heavens.) Wow, what a trip. Lots of tubing, water skiing, wake-boarding, and jet-ski riding. But I have to tell you this story. Friday morning we all wake up, and my little brother has a swollen cheek. We look at it and examine and play doctor and realize he has a tooth issue. We make an executive decision to head back to the marina and get some help. We traveled on back towards Antelope Point Marina in Page, Arizona. We parked across the bay on an open, sandy beach. All was well, they took my brother to the doctor's, gave him an IV, got the color back in his face. We were all so jolly and decided to hike a bit up the sand. Then, we turned around and saw the storm coming. Across the bay, sand was coming straight at us. We all ran towards our house boat, grabbing more anchors to attach to the house boat for safety from the wind. We dug whole and put the anchors in them and hoped and prayed that they would work. It didn't. The wind and waves were too strong and our house boat ended up horizontal on the beach instead of the vertical. But all was well because we were safe. But then our ski-boat was drenched in water and stuck on the sand too. If you have ever been to Lake Powell, you know the sand is very, very, very "sucky" (pun intended.) And that's enough for today. I'll finish my story tomorrow. In the mean time enjoy these pictures of my story.
