Last year, I started a YouTube series called the Camera Roll Vlog where I take photos and video clips from my camera roll and turn them into a montage. I started the series as a way to stay creatively active and put my massive 100,000 photo library to good use.
I’m always taking pictures. I take photos of everything, but my photos from Canyon Lake I particularly love. It was a gorgeous day; blue skies, placid water, stillness in the air, and perfect weather.
My friend Charles had a day off from work and we decided to take a day trip. We hopped into his Jeep and took off to an unknown destination. After driving for awhile I asked Charles where we were going, he said that he had intended Enchanted Rock, but forgot they were closed. We came to Canyon Lake and made the impromptu decision to spend the day there.
It was a great decision. I took lots of photos and video clips of the waves breaking along the shoreline. When I look at these pictures, I feel happy. There’s something about nature that relieves stress. I probably shouldn’t spend so much time on the computer.
I should post these photos on a stock photo site someday and earn a few cents toward more camera gear. Speaking of which, I have posted some stock video clips and photos in case you’re interested in supporting my work.
