Nope. Not the country! I’ve not be there just yet, but, it is south of me: Columbia, SC. After Tom Dills mentioned Roadside America, I figured that I’d download the app to my phone and see what was up. The app is $2.99 and you get one free region with the app. Each additional region costs $1.99. At first, I was going to select the flyover states that I plan to visit as my free region, but then thought better…

When I awoke this morning, I made a quick check of the weather app on my phone. As I viewed the information, a small groan escaped my lips. This groan was similar to the groan that “happens” in the summer when I see that it’s 82 degrees and 100 % humidity. I know that it’s gonna be a sweat fest from the first step across the threshold. However, a sweat fest was certainly of no concern on this particular morning…

Well, not actually, same old camera, just updated to the latest version of the firmware 🙂 Happy New Year! The Olympus OM-D E-M1 (Mark 1) still lives and provides service! All of those ideas that I had tossed around about a new camera, etc, have faded into the background. Those were just G.A.S. cramps. You know, Gear Acquisition Syndrom. 🙂 After I started putting $$$ to it, I thought: That money can be well spent on my “flyover” project, visiting…

For me, it’s been a great year. Like in this picture, who knows what’s around the corner, but I hope to be able to handle it with gratefulness. A big thanks to all of you who still visit, whether you comment or not. I appreciate the fact that you still read! If you’re out partying tonight, have a good time, be safe, and we’ll see you on the other side. Cedric! You’re already there, mate! You Aussies are ahead of…

That’s about the way that I see the early morning and early evening light in the winter time, milky. To me, it’s kind of like a light shining through water with a bit of milk mixed it, diffuse. As the suns rays are hitting the earth less directly, the shadows are longer, the light softer – it also means that I can shoot the “golden” light at about 3:00 PM, instead of waiting until 7:00 and getting the full-on assault…

If I’m being honest, I have to admit that I’m a middle of the book kind of guy as far as technical books go. I like to dive right in, figure the good stuff out, and then work my way through the book, using the index, to cover the bits that I need to know right now. I think that they might call that impatient, but I’m not sure. 😉 Rarely do I read a technical book, especially about cameras…
