I had intended to go to FedEx, pick up my new computer, come back home, move all of my stuff around and then relax; however, the boys and girls at FedEx didn’t have my package yet because the driver was late getting back to the depot. So, since there were some beautiful clouds around, I decided to take my D40 and do some shooting. There’s a place near my home called University Place Boardwalk. Why I hardly ever go there…

Switching over to Lightroom required that I add keywords back to most of my files. I’ve been doing about 1,000 or so images/day. I’ve only 1,500 left to add keywords to. Naturally, while adding keywords, you have to look at each picture and make a decision as to where to ‘place’ it. I see that I have a lot of different types of photographs, which got me to thinking about this post. At times I wonder about my own personal…

OK, sometimes I don’t have such good ideas. Today’s idea was one that was in that category. I decided to take my dog, Hobbs, with me on a photo outing. Bad idea. I was planning to shoot some more macros of the ladybugs and various insects that I find in an open lot. However, Hobbs had different ideas. He decided that wherever I was, he wanted to be. Instead of roaming freely among the grasses and deserted streets, between the…

Saturday Tony and I spent time in the yard working the earth, or more like it was working us over! 🙂 We tilled and raked and cut and scraped until we were tired. I’m convinced that the land upon which I know live was either covered by an ocean or a river. There are so many sandstones buried right beneath a thin layer of topsoil! It makes for hard work! I ordered myself a small compost bin, made plans for…

on the corner of Red Vulcan and Stubb where the grass has been allowed to go to seed. No, this is not a famous corner that you should know about, it’s just an, as yet, undeveloped street near my neighborhood. Formally, it had no name. It was simply a place deep in the woods on some farmer’s land. It’s a place of wonder and magic where each day the sun comes up to start the day alerting all of its…

I’m curious. I’ve been reading other blogs and see that some photographers subscribe to multiple magazines, read, look at other photographer’s works, go to art galleries or museums, etc. I just consistently go out and take photographs and attend a workshop or two. A long time ago I took a New York Institute of Photography ‘class’ where I had to mail in my assignments, they were critiqued,etc. I thought that it was worthwhile, but after a point, doesn’t it come…
