Back in the day, I used to work at a One Hour Photo. Good fun! It always seemed to be exciting our customers to be able to get their photos back in an hour. Now, with instant gratification at an all time high, especially with digital photography, waiting an hour seems like an eternity! No more customers standing at the window, waiting excitedly for their prints to come out of the chute and land into one of the viewing trays…

I almost had an Office Space moment the other day. If any of you have seen the movie, Office Space, you’ll probably recollect the scene when the employees get to take out their revenge on the printer that had been giving them so much trouble in the office.

The young lady pictured here, Rosa, gave us a demo of how the items were made, including showing us how all…

I really like the work of Byron Katie and I follow her Facebook page. Yesterday, she had a post that said: With nothing to compare yourself to, aren’t you perfect! ~Byron Katie Speaking of FB, there is a photographer that I used to follow. I liked his work because it was different. 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…
