Great Blue Skimmer by Fail-Avenger
Great Blue Skimmer
A new species of dragonfly for me! I spent a good chunk of time with this little fellow/lady and they were good company indeed. Let me sit right next to them with the camera.

Just dropping a line to say I've been really sick this summer due to the weather. For the same reason I haven't been out taking pictures nearly at all. The combined heat and humidity in florida basically gives me asthma attacks among other issues if I stay out in it longer than 10 minutes. I miss last summer! It was almost nice, especially compared to right now. Today though it was overcast and windy, and between those I managed to go out and stay out long enough to take some pictures. Spent time with an awesome little dragonfly and saw swarms of others flying around. These pine trees at one of my haunts were only knee high two months ago... now they're taller than me. It was interesting to see what else had changed. Anyway, sorry for not being around. It's been kind of depressing, being unable to go and take pics. But I got one or two for you all from today's session :)

I am the Loren! (Short for Laurence.) I'm a bit of an oddball, an old soul at home in the forests more than peopled lands. I'm a born idea man (head in the clouds) and a writer by habit. I write scifi/fantasy and I photograph nature, which can be as much or more breathtaking than make believe.

Just a note-- I owe a lot of my photographs (I think) to my beliefs, which are my own mixture of paganism, fairy beliefs, elementalism and earth worship. Getting close to the world with my camera, and capturing it for others to see, is part of that. So it doesn't seem fair not to mention it somewhere.

Other details: I've lately begun to sell my photos! It's a long and difficult process to put my stuff out there, but I'm getting there. I work in retail as a manager, I'm 30, though I look a LOT younger. I'm a transgender man and proud of it. I'm admittedly pretty strange and different, but I'm proud of that too! Basically I have a lot of self confidence and creativity, though admittedly not much common sense. I hope to one day work and make money with just my art (writing and photography.)

I live in Palm Coast, Florida, and spend a lot of my photography dreamtime in Flagler just down the street.
