T4T: J. Azure & The Toad

Two for Tuesday - our time to pass along the two websites that caught our attention this week. We hope you enjoy these links and encourage you to visit these sites.

As always, we have written permission to post and take a screen shot of these websites from the owners. So onto the picks - here is our Two for Tuesday sites for you to devour tonight...

The West Coast of America has some beautiful photography locations and a variety of weather to match.  J. Azure Photography have captured this part of America with a spectacular sense of purpose, vision, and composure.  From photographs of the Golden Gate Bridge emerging from fog to monochrome photographs of old, decomposing docks emerging from the misty waters, each photograph has a purpose and story to tell. 

The San Francisco Seascapes gallery is our favorite.  In each photograph of the sea, you can almost feel the waves push & pull you, while staring at the many aspects viewable to the human eye.   As a native Alaskan, you can tell that Joe is in touch with nature, light, and the weather from A to Z.  Great job, Joe!

Our friend, Sir Toad a.k.a. Scott, has published his first ebook, The f-stops Here, and WOW!  He nailed it!  HDR is Toad's speciality, and is the main focus of the first release, of hopefully many, to his ebook.  His focus of camera tends to be real estate, architecture, historical artifacts, and machines - oh, those wonderful machines.  His HDR has been honed with great mentors and study, and now that knowledge is being passed on to others as he begins his journey to mentor others.

His blog is part educational, part personal & emotional, and part photographic journey.  You may also recognize him for his "Best of..." series that he writes for Lightstalking.com.  One of his latest articles can be found here...  Great job, Sir Toad, we are proud to call you a friend!  Keep up the great work, and we can't wait to read your next ebook release.
