Things 04-20-2017 An Old Dog and His Tricks

People often remark that I look as though I couldn’t possibly have graduated from high school. Or they ask if anyone has ever told me that I look like a young Mark Zuckerberg. Either way, I can handle being told that I look young or like a genius billionaire. In fact, I appreciate it. Though …

Places 07-19-2016 A Detour to the Milky Way

My throat stung as though I’d swallowed shards of glass. My knees buckled a bit from weakness. My eyes wanted nothing more than to close up shop for the night and rest. And yet there I was, dragging my camera and tripod out to the shores of New Hogan Lake at ten o’ clock at night. Foolishness.

Places 03-16-2016 Rising Waters and a Quick Trip To Ireland

Sure, that famous Windows XP wallpaper was pretty, but I’m of the opinion that it could have used a few more trees. So when a rollicking rainstorm somehow transported me to the rolling hills of Ireland, I reckoned I’d better hop out of the car with my camera and get into action.

Things 03-08-2016 Oxbow the Flamingo
