DSLR – LCD hood loupe Attachment

As I mentioned in my last article (New Found Love of Video) I was awaiting for the LCD hood Loupe to be delivered for my DSLR camera.  Without repeating too much of what I previously wrote – the LCD hood loupe is a device that mounts onto the camera that shields the rear LCD display on the camera from glare, but also adds an eyepiece with optics to allow the user to see a magnified view of the LCD

New Found Love of Video

As of late, I seem to be shifting my focus away from photography and more toward videography.  Not that video is suddenly new to me or anything like that – because I’ve owned and used a video camera for years. (Canon HF-R11).  But for some strange reason, I find myself elevating the significance of video more than photos.

Photos have, and will always have, a place of importance in our lives, but videos capture life as it moves, breathes and lives. If a photo is worth a thousand words, then a video must be worth a million.

End of Another Show Season

Last Sunday marked the end of the 2019 Mariah Meadows Horse Show Season.  Yes, other shows do continue on through out the entire year at various locations, but for me, after shooting through the winter months for one season, I decided to take winters off for a break from it all.

4th of July Tradition

The 4th of July has always been one of my most favorite holidays of the year. More so I think when I was younger and the family did more things together.  In later years however, age and loss of family members has changed the level of festivities that the family partakes in.   Now, weather permitting, the day mostly consists of relaxing under the shade tree, grilling something for dinner, and watching the local fireworks display.

Thoughts from a hipster coffee shop…

This young lady gives me great hope for the future…

My generation has ONLY seen prosperity. We have no contrast. We didn’t live in the great depression, or live through two world wars, or see the rise and fall of socialism and communism. We don’t know what it’s like not to live without the internet, without cars, without smartphones.

A Different Life?

Yesterday turned out to be one of those cold, and rainy days that is typical of a New York State Spring, and the type of day that I don’t particularly care for either.

Bored, I walked around the inside of the house, looking out through the windows watching the rain and gloom. It’s funny how you can look outside like that, and allow your mind to drift off and sometimes wish for different things. Not that where you’re at is bad or anything, but just wondering how you would perceive a different life.
