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. Of course, I couldn’t help myself. I was testing out a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM, rented for a portrait project which I will cover in a later post. Murphy is not one to sit idle, so there are few shots of him, unless lighting is great. Being able to stop down to f2.8...

Keep Life In Perspective

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 need not be the storms that define us, but rather our response to them. If you...

Lighted Fountains At Dusk
April 26, 2019

Murphy and I spent the evening with a photographer friend, looking for light along the riverside parks in Cincinnati. This image, entitled Lighted Fountains at Dusk, feels sophisticated. Visions of black ties, evening gowns, and champagne pass through my imagination. A wisp of Bix Beiderbecke, or Benny Goodman hang in the air. Well heeled passengers queue up to board a finely appointed Pullman rail car at Union Terminal for destinations unknown. I...

Easter Service - Sunrise Edition
April 23, 2019

Hello all, and welcome to Easter Service - Sunrise Edition! There is a special feel to the Sunrise service. I envision that quiet time before the Mary's get to the tomb. Before the trumpeters usher in George Frideric Handel's Messiah and its triumphal Chorus. Maybe even at the time when Jesus makes his daring escape, and the angels tag with him to share the story. A pause before the storm, if you will. So, what do you imagine happened the night...
