WordPress congratulated me a little while back on my 5 years of blogging. An automated nod for sure. Ordinaryhiker was my original title for a blog that was to be a nature journal. It is still the underlying identity of this blog. My original blog featured my writings to camp directors and staff; from that came my blogger identity as “making camp”. Ordinaryhiker never took off due to circumstances unforeseen. Primarily recovering from the misadventures of lung surgery.
In March, I decided to blog again as a way to share and get some feedback on my photos, as a new photo hobbyist. Looking for a blog title that sounded photo worthy, I choose Snap Shot. It took off more than I would imagine. In the process, I realized that while I take on a variety of subjects, I am primarily a nature photographer … the ordinary hiker.
So, with the start of the new year, I am reverting back to being the Ordinary Hiker. Snap Shots by Wm. Roloff Photography. Changes will be on the way, a new gravatar etc.,. Thanks to you all who have made my photo journey such a joy and contributed to my growth.
As my first post of the new year I’m choosing 20 (if I can 🙂 ) of my favorite photos from last year. They are in no particular order but I would be curious to know your favorites.
Happy New Year. Looking forward to the journey. – Bill

So great photos, the one were the boy isw
Oi, excuse me, the comment jumped. The boy walking on the bridge is amazing, walking to a new year.
That’s the sentiment. I took my grandson on a photo hike. Now he is captured, an always ready to go hiking buddy.
Love them all, but my favorite is the waterfall. Lovely capture. Blessings to you in the year ahead.
And blessings to you! I’ve decided to enter an exhibit, so now to choose 4. Thanks for your input.
Beautiful Bill…have a Happy and Healthy New Year!
Blessing to you in a new year. Keep looking up!
It is difficult to choose one, I love most your close up photos though. I remember the photo “Iron and wood” for Cee’s photo challenge and it is an amazing one. Happy and creative 2016! ☺
I’ve come to believe if I put 20 photos in front of 20 different I will get 20 different favorites. Thanks for sharing and taking a closer look.
You are most welcome! ☺
Thank you for visiting my blog. I love all of the photos.
Thank you and your welcome, I enjoyed your picture and history sketch.
