Macro Photography - Ball of Yarn
May 25, 2019

Don't sweat the small stuff ... and it's all small stuff, is a book I read early in my career. The advice was sound and it dovetailed with my experiences as a cancer survivor. Today's adventure will be going against the aforementioned advice to look at a macro photography view of this Ball of Yarn. Small stuff indeed! Actually, these are two different balls. One is currently morphing into a sweater, and the other has aspirations to become a hat,...

Murphy In The Morning
May 16, 2019

Always excited to go outside, but rarely happy to have his photo taken. This is a shot of Murphy in the morning giving me the business for shoving a camera in his face.

Over 36k are expected to take part in the festivity’s...

Keep Life In Perspective
April 27, 2019

Life, like art, can change dramatically by the way you look at it. To keep life in perspective, I find it useful sometimes to step back from a situation and examine the larger picture. It can also be just as insightful to move in for a macro look at circumstances causing angst in your world. Storms Will Come A quote from Year of the Flood: "Storms of life will come. It need not be the storms that define us, but rather our response to them. If you...
