OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The featured image in this post is probably one of my favorites that I took while in Guatemala. It all just worked, for me. The light, her expression, the moment. This was taken in at a shop named , Casa Flor Ixcaco, located on a the shores of Lake Atítlan in the town of San Juan La Laguna, Guatemala. The young lady pictured here, Rosa, gave us a demo of how the items were made, including showing us how all…

About 2 1/2 years ago, I made a commitment to learn another language. I chose Spanish because it is easily accessible. The path started with a local school, Carolina Language Academy. That was fine; however, after the beginner’s class, they had trouble having enough for levels 2 and 3. So, I looked for an alternative solution, and found Language Convo, an all-online school. I signed up with them in July of 2013, or so. My first teacher was Vidal Valle…

“Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.” – Ray Bradbury I’ve not rented from LensRentals.com in a little while. I figured that this would be a good time.

However, he was always about comparisons and how someone else’s work didn’t measure up, never pointing fingers directly, but as a group, and how they “should” do this…

Well, spring is upon us. The weeds are blossoming in the yard. The daffodils are showing their colors, and the winter has left behind quite a few branches on the ground as it helped to trim the various trees in my backyard. One of my favorite trees used to be the river birch. I loved the curly bark on the trees; however, now that I have a couple of them in my backyard, I’m not so excited about them. They…

I looked at the number of posts that I’ve made this year and it’s about the same number of times that I’ve been out with my camera to take photos. 9 times out with the camera, 11 posts. That used to be how many times I posted in 11 days. However, it’s nothing for me to worry about. It’s just where I am at this moment. I still enjoy photography and writing, but haven’t had much to say of late…
