Trayson Conner | New West Pop Photo Artist
It's May 17, 2020. My last post was longer ago than I hoped. We are in the middle of a worldwide virus pandemic and very few people have been out or to work or much of anywhere since the middle of March. Here in Oklahoma, restaurants are starting ease back open but with half capacity. I have been "working" from home since March 13th. Sounds great, except, on April 6th, my wife and I were in a pretty bad car wreck and I was limited on what I was really able to do. Bed, couch, recliner, try to walk a bit, bed, couch, recliner, soft foods and no pain killers. I am about 95% now. Today, I walked about 3.5 miles. That's the most I have done in months. Just gotta keep moving.
I have been real antsy to get out and go camping, although, I still barely get comfortable sleeping on nice soft surfaces, even with an air mat, sleeping on the ground might be challenging. During all this "work" from home time, all the campgrounds have been closed due to the virus, oh and gas is as cheap as it's been since high school ($1.25 /gal). I want to get out soooo bad!
Since we have been relegated to the house, I have been shooting around the house and our neighborhood pond. It has been nice to go out for walks in the morning with my camera and just see what I can find. We've had a mated pair of mallard ducks, turtles, a rabbit, egrets, blue herons, a green heron, geese, a dead rat on the side walk (very strange), snakes, great sunsets, and thunderstorms. I did some night photography along with some long exposure shots with panning too.
All of the spring/ summer art festivals and shows have all been canceled so I have been working on the Etsy shop. I have added new note card packs and a bunch of new art. Now through the rest of May, most everything in the shop is 25% off and free shipping!
Thank you for staying with me. I hope everyone is staying healthy and practicing proper social distancing.

About This Blog
I have had a personal blog for years that while some of it pertained to my work, some of it was more personal than I wanted to share on my photography site. Here is the new blog. I may carry some of the stories over from the old, but this page will be about photography, exploration and adventure. I hope you enjoy this journey with me.
