Photographic Excellence will be posted regularly on the third Friday of every month. Featured in this series will be awesome works by great photographers, but unlike Poetic License which only features poets who have blogs, Photographic Excellence will showcase any photo found anywhere on the Internet. I will do my utmost to only showcase the best of the best. Credit will be given to the photographer, the page and site the work came from as well as any other relevant information about the photo.
Still it is my desire to get their permission so that I can ask the photographer some questions. Poetic License only has a theme once a year. Photographic Excellence will have a theme or category and only one photograph from one photographer will be featured. This month the theme is Blue.
For me to say it was difficult to choose a theme once I saw all the amazing images Florent has captured through his lens would be an understatement. You will see for yourself when you visit his website how hard it was to pick just one photograph but to go with the Blue Theme, you will agree I made the correct choice. Enjoy his Creeping Mist.

At the end of a rainy day, the sky finally clears and mist appears in the valleys and woods at dusk,
immersing the land into a dark eerie atmosphere in Puy de Dôme, France.
Florent is a self taught, 19 year old French photographer. Mr. Courty can be found on both WildScapes and DeviantArt. Go see for yourself why it was so difficult to feature just one image. The equipment he uses is the Canon EOS 7D, the Canon 17-40 L and a Sigma 70-300mm lens. If interested, most of the images on either site are available for purchase.

Yesterday I came across a new blog on my reader. If you have never used your reader to find new blogs to read or used the topics or tags pages to find content on blogs you might be interested in, you are missing out.
My daily ritual involves looking for and commenting on at least ten blogs I have never visited before. I came across Kyle Mews blog as you can see below. Kyle created a post for his 500th follower which involved a prize of sorts. I was not the 500th follower but I was at the same time. Another blogger beat me to it but then somehow someone unfollowed Kyle’s blog making me the second 500th follower. Confused yet? Of course not because you are all brilliant!
There was nothing in Kyle’s rule book saying there could not be a second 500th follower so I won the prize too. The prize is a post dedicated to the follower on any subject. The subject I choose was for Kyle to either do a review or a critique of Morning Erection. When he lets me know the post is live, I will let you know! Fair? Fair.
In other news tomorrow will be the first post in the series Photographic Excellence. This series will be similar to Poetic License but will only feature one image and one photographer. One very extraordinary photo! Please come back tomorrow to support someone who in my opinion is an excellent photographer. Thank you.
