This is the third in an irregular series of random musings by this ol’ photographer/artist.
“REALITY. What a concept!” I remember George Carlin using that line in his stand up routines must have been back in the 60s.
And yes, what a concept reality is. I have alluded to some of my conversations regarding reality [...]
As I scan back over my “recent” posts, I realize that the way I opened my last post could just as easily be the opening for this one. I started my last blog post by saying:
“Sometimes things just happen and the next thing you know, two weeks have gone by without a blog post. [...]
Sometimes things just happen and the next thing you know, two weeks have gone by without a blog post. And I find myself wondering… what was I doing the past two weeks. Well the answer is at once simple and just a little bit complicated. A series of events transpired within a very short period [...]
I had the pleasure of getting together with some real HDR heavyweights this past Friday and shooting at Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia. All totaled there were seven of us – Tony Sweet and Jason Odell (of the Image Doctors) who have just published an e-book on Nik HDR Efex Pro; Rick Walker, the other [...]
This is really a continuation of my last post here. Same trip to Longwood Gardens (Kennett Square, PA). Same camera – my Canon 30D. Same Lensbaby Composer but with the Soft Focus Optic rather than the Plastic one and using the +4 Macro filter from the Lensbaby Macro kit. I might add that while I [...]

So it was [...]
Barb and I spent Sunday morning in the conservatory at Longwood Gardens (Kennett Square, PA). This was the first weekend of the annual orchid extravaganza, an event we have visited and photographed each of the past four years. While orchids are the focus, they are by no means the only show in town. As always, [...]
We’re half way through January already. I keep reading posts from friends saying what a great start to the year it has been for them and I feel jealous, envious, and somehow cheated. This year has started off very slowly for me. Knock out a week when I was laid up with a respiratory virus [...]
Good Morning Everybody!
Before looking forward, let me wrap up a quick look back at the past two months or so which has been a period of change. First I changed the name of my business from “It’s My Nature: Photography by Ed Vatza” to the much simpler, much more direct and I hope more [...]
