Smoky Skies

For the past few days, the sun shine hasn’t been quite as bright as it normally shines. The sky has been covered with a milky haze, and it’s not because of thin cloud cover, it’s because of smoke from the wild fires that are burning on the west coast.

Lost Perspective. . .

I’m not really sure where everything went wrong, or what changed, but over the past few weeks and months, I’ve slowly come to the conclusion that somewhere along the way – photography stopped being fun, and it became a job.

Silver and Gold

Well, I met an old man walkin’ down the street
His clothes were torn and tattered
With sandals on his feet
And I stopped to help him
And lend him a hand

August is like the Sunday of Summer

I first came across this phrase today on a Facebook post, and boy, if that isn’t the truth! Once August gets here it’s pretty much downhill from there…

If no one is around to witness something happen, did it happen?

Like most people I think, when I turn in for the night, no matter how tired I am, I never fall immediately to sleep.  Instead, my mind wanders around to various thoughts and things – often times about things going on in my life, sometimes silly stuff, and also quite often – things that are mystic and philosophical (I think that’s the right word?).

Popcorn, anyone?

I’ve been struggling trying to find something interesting to write about, and thought, even though it has absolutely nothing to do with photography or art, why not do a piece about harvesting this years corn crop? It’s a change of pace at least.
