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…

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…

Well, the calendar indicates that we, here in the northern hemisphere, are at the beginning of winter. However, I had a bit of a different experience this morning, a bit of “fall”. I decided to walk through the woods yesterday evening, enjoying the long shadows and the the diffuse light common in the wintertime. That was great, so, I decided to do it again this morning. It was a bit chilly, 25 degrees F with a bit of wind, giving…

Boxing Day in the UK and Canada is similar to our Black Friday where retailers place lots of items on sale, but happens the day after Christmas! That said, though, the huge discounts combined with the large crowds could lead to a bit of the type of boxing depicted here! I saw that widget first! Now, gimme!!!

Usually, when I think of Christmas, I think of it as a time for family gatherings, sitting around chatting, laughing, drinking a bit of eggnog or whatever is your “thing”. This Christmas Day has been a nice, quiet, laid back time of contemplation. Time to think, consider, and of course be grateful. I was looking through my various files, seeing where I’ve been on different Christmas days. Two years ago, I was on a house boat in southern India! Last…

I, for one, will be glad to see the sun set later and later. I have a difficult time staying up during the late fall and early winter. Yesterday was the winter solstice. I took a moment to admire the sunset from my backyard, being grateful that in the coming days, it will be lighter outside a little bit longer each day. With that thought, I thought of a trip or two that I’d like to take. I’d like to…
