Reminders Humans are a species mired in symbology. It’s part of our collective unconsciousness, I think. I can always count on my brain to have an adventure off into the land of symbols when I’m walking and all is quiet. To most, this is a fallen tree. To my mind, at least this morning, and yesterday morning, this is a metaphor for life. Taoism says that that which is supple, is living. That which is rigid, is dead. The tree…

A friend of mine sent me this video. It’s rather cute and mentions some cool iPhone camera applications. Of course, I’m not trading in the D300 or the M9 for them, but they are cool nonetheless. Enjoy.

It was foggy this morning and, like most foggy mornings, I was like a kid on Christmas morning waiting to open my present. When I looked out the bedroom window to the assess the morning’s weather, a smile crept across my face as I realized that we were under some heavy fog.

Please see the next photo. Which do you like better? I think that they were ‘acting’ right in the first place. It was an…

I went to a photography meet-up today. The theme was wedding photography. We met at The Loft at Union Square in High Point, NC. Tim and I arrived at around 3:45 PM on Sunday. After taking a bit of time to figure out how to get into the place, we walked into the well lit loft area that was formerly a furniture making factory.
