Welcome to PaintedSpur Photography's Blog Spot! 

 

 

 

      We've added this blog to our website to share our outings and photographic adventures with you. We love taking our mini trips, to see what we can see and photograph what we can photograph, within a day's drive of our home. Sometimes, more often than not, we come home empty handed, but have had a great time anyway.

 

"Every other artist begins with a blank canvas, a piece of paper… the photographer begins with the finished product."
