So now that the winter is ending and spring is in the air, I’m getting out in my wheelchair (the flying turtle) more, strolling around the neighborhood taking pictures of growing things, interesting human structures and things that make wheelchairs inaccessible. In the past I’ve just kept these photos to myself or shared on facebook. But from now on, I’ll be sharing them on my Patreon page. I’m giving you a preview here, but in future it will be an exclusive Patreon benefit.
I am not a great photographer. I wouldn’t be a photographer at all if digital photography didn’t make it so easy and affordable. I rarely print up my photographs, though I add some to my Redbubble shop for cards and postcards. I take inspiration from the writer Eudora Welty, who took amazing photos with a simple Kodak camera.
Patreon is a membership platform that runs a subscription service. It helps creators and artists earn a monthly income by providing rewards and perks to their subscribers. Subscribers pledge a small amount each month that is automatically withdrawn from their credit card. My Patreon is pretty democratic. I try to provide original art to my supporters no matter what the donation level. So for as little as a dollar a month, you can get all the special content I provide for my patrons.
Today I’ll provide everyone the first post in this photo series but afterwards, it will be a Patreon only publication. These are photos from my walk yesterday. Today it’s raining buckets and we’re having thunderstorms. Therefore, a cat nap.
Thanks for reading my blog. Feel free to share it, if you’d like.
