Every once in a while, on a slow day, I’ll do what I call link hopping. That is, for those of you bloggers who visit my site, I’ll visit yours and see who you have on your blogroll (that reminds me, I need to do a better job of keeping my up-to-date). If you don’t have a blogroll, then I’ll read comments and click though to some of the commentators’ sites. Then, I’ll visit a site or two, see if…

I am following, with great interest and admiration, Ove’s 365 project. That is, one photo a day for the entire year. No small undertaking, from my point of view, yet, there are a few who do that and more, like Andreas and Juha. I have great admiration for their stamina and dedication. I imagine that I might be able to do it, physically, go out or stay in and take a photo a day, but mentally, I don’t know. I’ve…

We take our time to do the personal work, say in the morning while everyone else is sleeping. He doesn’t like…

The impending storm It’s been a long time since I’ve used a desktop. When I went to Charleston to work, back in August of 2008, I started carrying with me, a laptop, and started using it exclusively to process photos, etc. In February of 2008, I bought a MacBook Pro and never looked back. However, recently, I’ve missed having a desktop. A place where I could sit and work, plug in my Wacom tablet, which I’ve not used in years…

A snack for the taking! During my walk this morning, I noticed quite a few of these little caterpillars, or perhaps worms spinning webs from the branches of the tree, to the ground. I see them most every spring. They are called Spring Canker Worms, or inchworms, more commonly. They hang out in oak trees. This morning, I was going to try to photograph one that was hanging in the sunlight. As I walked down the sidewalk, I noticed one…
