MUDPIX OUTDOOR PHOTOGRAPHY (MOP aka MUDPIX MAGAZINE) is photography by David Thrift – yes the same guy who makes your favorite beanies here at DudeCapz Beanie Store.
I have not been actively promoting my outdoor photography a lot for quite awhile. I am putting a change to that hopefully by integrating this new photo series here at my crafts and store site (DudeCapz.com)
MUDPIX OUTDOOR PHOTOGRAPHY gets it’s roots planted in time as far back as around 2003. I began regularly spending a lot of time at some of the parks around West Point Lake. I would go walking, or hiking.
Some few years later as cellphone technology advanced, and cameras started becoming mainstream features built into them, I began taking photos with my cellphones. That’s what sparked my interest in digital outdoor photography. Back then however, digital cameras, especially those in cellphones were not high quality, so I only took a few photos here and there, but I didn’t really start saving photos until 2013 when more focus was starting to be put on higher quality cameras. Finally in 2016, I bought a nice Cannon bridge zoom camera, and over time I have taken thousands of outdoor photos with it up until 2020.
A lot of things happened in 2020 from the Covid pandemic, to a job change which took up all of my time (no complaints – I made good money). Not being able to get out on my day trips to the lake like I was doing so regularly, and taking up interest in other things, is why I haven’t been promoting my photography so much as I mentioned.
Now in 2021 during this summer I have decided to try and make some effort to get myself out to my favorite outdoor locations and get back into my photography.
Starting this series out, I have 1 photo for viewing. I will add 1 photo each time I make a trip to this location.
Sunday, July 18th, 2021 @ 8:30 AM EST (7:30 AM CST). My trip out on this day to Long Cane Park was a spur of the moment thing. I needed gas in my truck. So I went to a service station, grabbed some breakfast at a BK drive-thru, and then the urge to go to the lake took over me. I went, but didn’t stay more than 20 minutes. But the lake was beautiful, even though it was very cloudy. I took about 50 photos and went home. I will have to put some planning into going out to the lake on one of my off days so that I don’t have to rush home so fast.
Another photo coming soon.
