Happy Boy Magazine Daily Newsletter #3

Section 1 – Introduction, Photography, and Writing From The Author, Editor, and Photographer, at Happy Boy Magazine

Welcome to newsletter #3 at Happy πŸ˜„ Boy Magazine on Friday, July 14th, 2017. My name is David Thrift, and I am a photographer, and creator of Happy πŸ˜„ Boy Photo Magazine, my personal self published magazine which will feature my outdoor photography around lake areas in East Alabama, and West Georgia. I am currently working on the first issue. This is my daily newsletter where I show you my latest photography, give progress updates on my magazine releases, and show some of my favorite photography and content from other people online that may be of interest. Thank you for joining me today.

Continuing on with my current photo series I’m promoting for my magazine (note: this series will not be in the first issue that I’m currently putting together. It will appear in a later issue and full images will be published instead of these instagram cropped/filtered, and watermarked images)…

Photo Series – Veasey Creek Park and Anderson Park – Friday, June 2nd, 2017 – I previously started promoting this photo series on my instagram @ahbmag page around the middle of June 2017. I am carrying the series over to my newsletters as well for further promotion of my photography. I am sharing five photos from this series today.

This is photo #11 of this series. It’s always a fun time for me when folks show up on boats or ski jets out on the water. I like getting the action shots as they zoom by, or perhaps are just laying on a float enjoying their day.

Photo #12.

Photo #13.

Photo #14. Veasey Creek Park is my favorite place to go shoot mushroom πŸ„ photos after a period of rain. On this day I got some really good shots of lots of different kinds.

Photo #15.

Those are all I have to show in this series for now. I will have more to come in the next newsletter. Please check out more of my photography in the previous newsletters found in the Newsletter Archive and free galleries.

Section 2 – Progress Update On My Happy πŸ˜„ Boy Photo Magazine First Issue Completion

What a pretty bird.

Another shark video I think is cool. I have never gone diving (and I don’t want to), but the ocean and it’s creatures are fascinating to me.

Inspiration. I gotta start getting in shape again.

Piglet Squid 🐷xπŸ¦‘ This piglet squid may look big- but even after it fills itself up with water to float- it’s roughly the size of an avocado πŸ₯‘ . Its skin patterns form the adorable shape of a small smiling face and its tuft of tentacles looks like curly locks of hair on its head. Because they live at such deep dark depths, a large light-producing organ (photophore) is located beneath each of its large eyes to help light the way. πŸ’‘ Little is known about piglet squid behavior, but taking note of it’s shape, it should come as no surprise that it’s a sluggish swimmerβ€” look at that grin nation πŸ™‚ πŸ“Έ: Mike Schaat #️⃣ #OctoNation #Octopus #Scuba #natgeoyourshot #diver #cephalopod #discoverocean #diving @discoverocean #octopustattoo #pulpo #teamcanon #pigletsquid #kraken #marinelife #NationalGeographic #NatGeo #ocean #blackjaguarwhitetiger @rhino18181 @wahoo_q8 @christylee787 @blackjaguarwhitetiger @feliciaecheverria @lonelywhale #stopsucking #tentacles #oceanconservation #nature #aquarium @oceana @pangeaseed @adriangrenier @discoverychannel
