Come On…

Come on Spring – kinda tired of riding my bike inside all the time.  Need some variety.

Poll for the audience…

…how many of you had a Disney song going through your head just now?  Just curious.

Check out the pattern that the freezing rain made.  Fascinating.

Anniversary

I was being rolled back to the OR exactly a year ago.  What a difference one year makes, huh?

Has nothing to do with the surgery, I just like the image.  #iphone #olloclip

 

Meanie

We put a birdhouse right outside our kitchen window and it’s been fascinating to watch the action and interactions.  Turns out that the woodpecker is a big ole meanie!

I know it may not look like it here, but that woodpecker started it.  I saw it.

Wildlife

Enjoying some quality time at the beach.  I figured I’d shoot the sunrise a little differently this morning.

It’s been a while since I did a video here so enjoy.

In My Name?

The flowers in church last Sunday were in my name.  It’s was a crazy overwhelming feeling.  I’ve always heard them mention that the flowers were in other names, but this time it was me!  Thank you.

On another note, it’s weird to hear what people are saying in terms of my recent surgery.  On some levels it’s become a bit over-exaggerated.  I think, in some circles, I almost died.  It’s a bit Ferris Beuller-ish.

I can say, without hesitation, that the reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.

Click and Go

I’m really trying to be more efficient when it comes to editing images (and everything else, for that matter, to do with photography) just to improve my workflow.  I can honestly say that I’ve spent upwards of hours editing a single image.  I have to get more efficient with that.  Lightroom can do some heavy lifting when it comes to editing and I’m trying not to always end up in Photoshop because not every image needs it.  So I’m trying to create single and, possibly, multiple single one-click presets that can get the job done.  This is a photo from back in the Fall of 2012 with two “stacked” presets (2 clicks) in Lightroom.
