I was quite entertained following this discussion on Chris’s blog, in particular, the discussion between Ray and Chris about pre-visualization and art. On one side, you have Ray K. saying that in order for it be art, essentially, it needed to be pre-visualized, with Chris countering with exploration-as-inspiration. As I do a fair bit of exploration, I wholeheartedly agreed with Chris. I remember writing a post, nearly 6 years ago, it was called: Avoiding First Impressions. I remember mentioning that…

Mark Graf ‘highly encouraged’ me to do this list, so here it is. I went back through the 7500+ photos that I took this year. Many of them were just walking-around photos. Photos that I took while on my walk through the neighborhood. Overall, I didn’t travel to many places this year, but I was out and about a lot. I went to: 1. Ohio – 3 times. 2. Mexico – 2 times. 3. Seabrook Island, SC – 1 time…

Rather than to post my favorite pictures of “2013″, or come up with some list of things, I thought that I’d just talk about the construct of time a little bit. A boy was walking along, found a shiny penny, picked it up, showed to his father and proudly exclaimed it to be his lucky penny.

The normally placed, just above a trickle stream was quite energetic and there were several new ‘tributaries’ that had formed as the…

Tony’s home for the holidays. This year, he’s in California. Next year, who knows … not even him. He’s been staying with his mom because he has full use of her vehicle, and her’s is newer than mine. I’ve seen him 3 days in a row, now. He appears randomly. I never know when he will show up. I’d been putting off raking leaves, hoping that some good samaritan would happen buy and do it for me. Guess what –…

Though, technically, it’s not yet winter for another week or so, mostly all of the trees have shed their leaves and it’s sure giving a great impression of winter. Yesterday, I went to the lake. At this time of year it’s pretty frequent to see fog rolling across the water as the sun rapidly warms the air. Also, you get to view scenes that wouldn’t be visible at other times, such as the one above. Normally, the light is not…
