I’ve always been fascinated by the sky. At night with the stars. During the day with clouds, the sun’s rays, and rainbows. Sunrises and sunsets are uniquely beautiful. It’s like an artist took a giant paintbrush and painted the sky like a canvas. Sunsets are my absolute favorite. I’ve been photographing them for years. Why? Because I need the reminder to slow down, reflect, and look up. Continue reading Look Up
My recent escapade to the capital of weirdness brought about an epiphany. I wonder when I last used a film camera…. Believe it or not – my first camera was NOT digital. Soon after I hit my one year anniversary with Walgreens, I got promoted from the customer service rep position to the photo lab tech spot. I touched film quite a bit. It always intrigued me. I never experimented with my own film, just the customers’. So when I left the lab, I basically lost all connections with the film world. After being so heavily involved in the digital … Continue reading remember when…?
Back by popular demand is another round of photo safari goodness! *hooray!* I had 4 major goals for this evening: spend “be still” time with the Lord run eat at Stubb’s BBQ fulfill a sweet tooth fantasy at Amy’s Ice Cream I’m happy to say I accomplished ALL of my goals…and even walked away with a bonus feature – a vintage treasure, if you will. (Comment for a hint. Yes, I’m going to be vague again. If you read these side musings of mine and actually comment, then I must know you and love you dearly. I see so many … Continue reading Bonus Blog Friday | nothing beats going there
So, I had a change of plans. I decided to postpone my running until EARLY tomorrow morning (SO incredibly rare for me since I’m a night/midnight runner at heart.) I would rather not be attacked or kidnapped on the poorly lit (due to nightfall) 4.5 mile track between the hotel, river, and downtown. (Some of you follow me on Twitter & Facebook, so you should recognize the kidnapping reference from earlier…yeah….) This wicked cool photo safari happened due to a wrong turn. Seriously. This is yet another time where I am amazed at God’s providence, even in the “little” things. … Continue reading come on, baby! photo safari! (Austin style…meaning weird)
Ginny Corbett is my sistah. This post would not happen if it weren’t for her. I have a short list of power inspiration people and she is definitely on it! The RENEW Workshop has changed my life. I have gone the last two years in Dallas and both times I have learned so many valuable business & photography techniques. Check out the official RENEW website for more info and reviews. CLICK HERE Here they are folks – the fabulous models, divas, and rockstars of RENEW 2012. (RENEW sisters, did any of y’all capture a shot or two of me in … Continue reading RENEW 2012
I passed THE mile marker recently. ONE THOUSAND Instagram posts!!! 😀 (Shameless plug – follow me on Instagram: @jmhansen) Here is my very first IG post (according to Statigram). I’d say the timing is basically perfect because I’m about to make a trip to Austin. Of course, this means I shall be making a very necessary stop in Waco at my favorite coffee house on the planet – Common Grounds!!! As I scroll through the now 1,000+ IG posts I’ve made over the last year or so, I am amazed to see where the Lord has taken me. So many … Continue reading 1k | one glorious journey
