Today I launched a new blog called Bilbo's World in pictures. I am very excited and proud of what I have put together. It is a collection of some of my best photographs that I have taken over the years. Many of these photographs have appeared on this blog from time to time but I have decided to put them together in a one place for others to observe and enjoy. I was inspired by fellow blogger Julie Bogart who launched her own photography bl. og project last year called Julie Unplugged 365...Thanks Julie...I will be adding new pictures on a regular basis. I currently have a rather extensive collection of photographs I intend to post in the days and weeks to come...and...I will adding to my old pictures with new pictures whenever I take a photograph that I consider worthy of my blog. Also, because I am excited and inspired about what I am doing I am also thinking about purchasing a new camera. Right now I am considering either purchasing a Canon Sure Shot SD87V15 with 8.1 pixels or a EOS Digital Rebel XTI SLR. The Rebel model is much more expensive but I feel ready to move up to the big boys because I really do enjoy taking pictures....so...if you are so inclined check out Bilbo's World in Pictures and let me know what you think....

You are so awesome! I've always loved your California nature shots. You have a wonderful eye (and gorgeous subject matter). I'm excited about this journey for you and have added Biblo in pictures to my google reader.

Hi Julie,

Thanks for the encouragement. I also got some encouragement from another unexpected source. While checking out a local camera shop I was told by the owner that he thought some of the pictures I brought in to be developed were absolutely incredible and he told me he thought they were good enough to win first place at the fair...and...when I asked him why he thought that to be the case, he told me he was one of the judges!...and...my pictures were better than the ones he has seen over the years. This has been very, very, encouraging and I may have stumbled into something I can sink my teeth into. Tomorrow I am going to out to buy a new camera and am planning on taking some classes. I believe I have a wonderful eye, now I need some instruction to go along with my raw talent. Thanks, for playing a part of this new adventure for me....
