David Mathre Photography

Welcome to my Images of the Day Photo blog. My goal is to post images from each day of the year going back to 2006 when I got my first DSLR camera. Images I post on Google+ are also forwarded to this Photo blog. I am a retired chemist that worked nearly thirty years in the Pharmaceutical industry. I took my first DSLR camera on a road trip across the United States, and became hooked, with my new passion becoming a photographer. I now spend all my time traveling and taking pictures. Since then I have visited over 50 countries, many on Semester at Sea voyages. My photographic interests include travel, the natural world, landscapes, and photographic techniques. I always want to learn something new and the only way to become better is to learn from mistakes.

  1. Nice images, David. BTW, in my new home in Virginia; progressing well at unpacking. Hope to get out and do photography in the next week or so. Take care.

    In early October going on a trip to Maine (ANPAT) will make some stops on the way up. I could swing by and say hello, perhaps.

      Thanks! I have been taking images every day, but get tied up with the home renovation project so end up not posting as many images that I would like. I am so happy that three of the sections I planted as wildflower meadows have been a success. Three other sections not as successful. Glad to have you stop by in October. I am hoping the kitchen is done in a couple of weeks. I will be letting my Nikonians membership lapse. It was prepaid for several years before my last ANPAT trip where I ended up on the wrong van… There is a chance I get to pass through Maine on the way to Canada in three weeks.
