Snitchin'

Well, that used to be a saying, but these days the slogan is “See something. Say something” ever since 9/11, The damn Patriot Act, and the constant barrage of fear heaped upon us daily through the news. Yesterday, I was at the post office. While I was waiting, I heard a “little old lady”, who was probably about 70 years old, talking to one of the postal employees: You know, I just saw a lady out there, in the parking…

Bag sized

There are plenty of jokes around about women who go shopping for shoes, but then when they get the shoes, need a new bag, clothes, and accessories to go along with them. I wonder if photographers are not similar. It seems like that I’m always in the market for a new bag, a specific bag, the right bag for the occasion.

The main focus of this multi-racial group was to be socially conscious photographers…

Both of them have some of my pictures on them; however, most of my photos are on my main computer and I use Crash Plan as my…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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…

I was standing, looking at the lake, enjoying the last rays of sun. I saw him come down the tree, to my right, circle around behind me, then stop. I wondered what would happen if I stood absolutely still, so I did. Eventually, he made a wide circle around my to my left, stopped and looked at me, came closer, and closer. As a matter of fact, he came so close that I thought that he might actually mistake me…
