My photography journey...
From here in April 2020 -------->
Wasn't sure what the chosen composition was, but felt cool about it when I clicked the camera button. It was a bad composition.
Every weekend (rain or shine!):
Took pictures in the sun, rain, snow, and frigid winters (-20 F) on various composition topics
Over 5,000 pictures in a year
Practice, practice, practice
95% of the pictures I took were within a 10 mile radius of where I live
Watched over 200 hours of photography videos
Spent close to $2,000 on the camera equipment and gear
--------> To here in April 2021
Now, I get lots of positive comments from friends, relatives, and traveler blogs. I assume this is a better composition than the one from last year.

Some quotes from the people I learnt various photography topics from!
"Your worst pictures are your first 10,000 pictures"
"I shoot in aperture mode 98% of time "
You know me ,I only shoot in manual mode"
"Don't spend money on camera but spend it on lens"
"Its all in your mind and not in the camera" ;
Huge thanks to all these people who inspired me with their own photography:
