I remember when I first picked up a wide angle lens to use. I hated it, absolutely hated it. It made everything look so small. I had visions of seeing these wide-open spaces portrayed elegantly with my new fangled lens. I got rid of that lens. The problem, of course, was the photographer, not the lens. After I learned how to use one, many years later, I always made sure to have one in my kit. For the last few…

As Google is prone to do, it’s discontinuing a well-used piece of software, Google Reader. I need to find a new ‘home’ to host my RSS feeds. I’ve been using Feedly, but sometimes it seems quite ‘wonky’. Sometimes I cannot log in, other times my feeds don’t show up, still other times, it works. I’m not exactly so confident that it will still work on July 1st, after Google Reader bites the dust. For those of you who are using…

So, in preparation for some more frames, I printed out a number of prints that I intended to hang. Printed them on 13 x 19″ (Super…

Well, I finally figured it out. I’ve been wondering what the hell was going on with my gravatar. Sometimes it would show up when I would make a reply to a post that I’d written, other times, it wouldn’t. I tried changing settings and all sorts of things, but couldn’t get it to be consistent, unless I logged into my blog. That was not ever necessary before … that was then, this is now. That email address is associated with…

I generally only head over to Google Analytics when something on my dashboard catches my eye. I noticed this the other day, a spike in the number of visits. I was curious what was the cause. I looked at the post that I did on February 10th, the post after the day of the spike and saw nothing much of consequence. I had done a post about making backgrounds from muslin and dye. No biggie. Usually I get these spikes…
