Celebrating ten years of “On the Cork Board”!

Ten years ago, I told my wife: “When I retire, I want to start a blog like the one Carl Weese has.” Her reply was: “Why wait? Why don’t you start it now?” So, ten years ago today, I created “On the Cork Board” and made the first post. I’ve been at it ever since.

The purpose of “On the Cork Board” is simply to let you see where my art is going by seeing what I’m taking pictures of. That’s all. Please continue to visit. I hope you see something you like.

This spring, my brother Tom bought himself a new telephoto zoom; so I now have his old zoom on permanent loan. I don't find it very useful for "art", but it is kind of fun for taking pictures of the birds and other critters in the back yard. Here's what passes for wildlife photography around here.

I wanted to fix the converging verticals in this wide-angle shot. But that ended up cropping off too much of the picture (if I wanted to keep the picture a rectangle). So we now have a non-rectangular picture, which I find to be oddly pleasing.

Lake Conestee Nature Park is in large part a silted in lake. That means you will see lots of swampy wetland there, as well as quite a bit of mud and muck. I get fascinated with the muck from time to time. So, for a bit, we'll have muck pictures. Lake Conestee Nature Park, Conestee, SC

As I mentioned in a comment, this picture and the previous five posts were taken in my back yard within about a ten minute period. I wasn't even "seriously" shooting; just taking some snapshots of a rare snow. Then, when I took a closer look, I realized I had some good pictures. You never know.

Pansies in the snow, Greenville, SC. By the way, these snow pictures are from January of this year. It is definitely not snowing in South Carolina in April.

We don't get much snow here in Greenville, SC. So when we do, we try to take advantage of it. We'll now start a short series of snow pictures from the back yard.
