History at Augusta

Tiger! Tiger! Tiger! Tiger! The roar from the crowd and the chants of Tigers name echoed across the Augusta National Golf Course Sunday afternoon, and no doubt also across the Nation via television, as Tiger Woods won the Masters and his 5th Green Jacket! This was history in the making, and a tournament that I was thrilled to watch!

Golden View Ranch – Obstacle Challenge

Yesterday marked the beginning of a new horse show season for me! I say “for me”, because technically a horse show season doesn’t really end! Most of the riders and competitors compete all year long. During the summer the events are held outside. During the winter, the events move into large indoor arenas.

2018 Horse Show Review

I’ve been messing around with video hosting services as of late. Self hosting on Zenfolio, Youtube, and Vimeo.

The self hosted solution would be ideal, simple because I’m already paying for the service to host my photos. The problem there however, it that the interface is a bit wonky – I.E. I don’t like it!

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 Interview with model, Jenifer Sutter

During my short time on MeWe, I have joined a few photography groups, and have started sharing some of my work. MeWe really is a great social network, especially for those of us who are photography oriented, and it has allowed me to meet some really great people  – photographers and models – during my short time there! 

A couple of the photography groups that I am a member of, “IFD MeWe”, and “IFD Non-Nude Model Photography” were created by a young lady, and model, Jenifer Sutter.

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.
