Yesterday, I went to the Mint Museum here in Charlotte. I’d never been before. The work of Sonja Handelman Meyer was on display. Who is she, you might rightly ask. Well, she’s 93 years old, lives in a retirement home in Charlotte, and the show at The Mint Museum was her first show ever. In the 1943 she was introduced to a group called, The Photo League. The main focus of this multi-racial group was to be socially conscious photographers…

Spring cleaning! I decided to buy a new theme. It’s highly, and I mean highly, customizable. Hang in there with me as I tweak and make changes to suit my tastes. What I found most appealing about this particular theme was the home page, the slider at the top, and how you can completely customize it for whatever you want. Eventually, I think that I’ll add a custom header, etc, but for now, it’s coming together nicely.

“Carve your name on hearts, not tombstones. A legacy is etched into the minds of others and the stories they share about you.” ? Shannon L.

The other day I spent a pleasant couple of hours with my niece, Sara. She was in town visiting from Dallas, TX. She’s an excellent musician and is trying to get a scholarship to one of two schools in the area. While we were riding in the car as well as talking during dinner, she told me that she wanted to be the absolute best mellophone player that she can and that nothing gives her greater join then participating in…

I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about how to improve my photography, honestly. Most of the time that I even think about it is when I think of how much fun that I have doing it, or perhaps wondering where I’ll turn my camera the next time. Occasionally, I will think, though not often: How can I improve? What does improvement even mean? Or, what if I’m at the top of my game? What if this is as…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Even though I own both the Olympus E-M1 and E-M5, I still shoot with both. I’ve simply my 45 mm lens on the E-M5 and the 12 mm on the E-M1. Now, as long as I don’t get 3rd lens, I’m set. Yesterday, I was out the E-M5 taking pictures around the lake. I noticed a number of seagulls doing what I assume was a bit of fishing. They were flying hither and yon, dipping into the lake very briefly…
