Photography as Art…

Disclaimer: This post is just my opinion, and in no way is it meant to be offensive, critical, or authoritative.

Something that I have discovered about myself when it comes to nude photography, is just how much of it I’m not really fond of. All to often I see photos that, to me, don’t really offer the viewer much – other than a naked female. In other words, if the model had been fully clothed, the photo wouldn’t be much of anything to look at.

I realize that art is extremely subjective, and one person’s masterpiece, is just another photo to someone else. In other words – “to each their own”

Upgrading to Microsoft Windows 10 Professional

Performing this upgrade has been something that I had been procrastinating about for quite some time now – ever since Windows 10 was released as a free upgrade to be exact. But, back then, I didn’t have the internet bandwidth to download it (Verizon Wireless at poor transfer speeds).

However, a little over a year ago, I moved from Verizon as my internet provider, to HughesNet Gen 5. That was a huge improvement for internet related tasks and jobs!

My new, new home – MeWe!

It was just a little over a month ago that I was singing the praises of the social network Diaspora*, and those praises still stand.  However as I had mentioned in that post, I had also signed up for an account on MeWe.

My New Home – Diaspora*

A few weeks ago, it was announced that search engine giant, Google, would be terminating their consumer version of their social network, Google Plus (G+).

By all accounts, the kill switch won’t be thrown until midsummer 2019, but still, the end was announced – forcing people like me, who actually use it, to think about what our future would be.

Patches of Light

I don’t really know what it is about views like this, but I’ve always, always found them to be very appealing.  Is it the contrast between light and dark? A sense of direction? The feeling of hope in an otherwise dark world? I really can’t say. I just know that I’m drawn to views like this.

Mystery closure of observatory and FBI presence in Sunspot, New Mexico

This is one of those stories that’s fascinating and makes you scratch your head in wonder.  An observatory that monitors the Sun is closed and evacuated, as well as a post office in the area – and the FBI isn’t telling anyone anything – not even local law enforcement.

Dubious Skies

In this particular part of NYS where I live, rain has been fleeting for most of the entire summer. So catching some photos of storm clouds hasn’t really been in the works – unless I wanted to travel a few miles in just about any direction from here.  Lake Ontario is only about 8 miles or so north of me, and even in that direction, they have had more rain than at my location!

Where does the time go?

Like I do almost every evening in the summer, I now find myself sitting in the yard under the shade tree, taking in the evening joys of summer… I love watching the kittens play and grow, and listening to the birds sing…
