Look around. I’m sure there’s plenty to see where YOU are.
May the force be with all those watching tonight. I suppose I’m off social media now until I see it, huh?
Small Business Saturday
Just another option for those of you who like to decorate your walls. Although, products aren’t limited to wall decor. The playing cards are pretty cool, too.
Makes you completely disregard the fact that this is actually a cemetery, right?
I don’t think I’ve shared this. I remember posting an image of this incident, but never the full video. If you pay close attention at about 45 seconds you can see the quad level out (it’s so very subtle) and that was my fatal mistake because it didn’t clear the hill and I still had legal room to climb. Once the forest starts to appear in the shot it’s not long before it happens, but I end this video before that point. It won’t take much imagination to figure out what happens next. A shout-out to my brother and son for heading off after it. After all that, I still got the shot!
Alright, so here’s the obligatory Spring Break photo…
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.
If you don’t have one, you need to get something that is a solid head leveler. You know, one of those things that can be your go-to activity that takes you away from it all and can really get your head back on straight. A head leveler. Mine is my bike. There’s nothing like a good bike ride for me. I’ve had cycling in my life now for over 30 years. Through all of my ups and downs, I still have my bike. I don’t know what I’d do if I couldn’t ride. And a year ago I wasn’t so sure about it. Glad I have it. It take me places.
I was being rolled back to the OR exactly a year ago. What a difference one year makes, huh?
Did You Miss It?
With all the commotion going on with the super storm of 2016/Snowmageddan/Jonas/Storm of the Year or whatever you want to call it, did you miss the full moon last night? We saw it while we were watching The Shining on our sun porch which was surrounded by the blizzard. Cool.
Leap Of Faith
I don’t really feel too bad about it. After all, he’s been in snow before. You’d think he’d have learned his lesson.
How else should you spend the first bright snow day than with a visit to the eye doctor and massively dilated pupils?!
#TB (Insert Day of the Week)
Wow, it’s been a long time. Not that I’m lazy, but I’m going back through all my photos to see if I can dig up some good ones. Someone recently gave me a great quote about what separates a pro from an amateur photographer. Basically it come down to size matters. Now, get your mind out of the gutter…
The size of their “trash can.” Pros take a crap-load of photos and most are never seen by anybody. In 2015 I shot 6478 “general” photos. This figure doesn’t take into account all the paid gigs that my studio handled. That would bump the number of images up to 29,925. Still not an enormous number compared to a lot of pros, but when you factor in the fact that I only considered 90 good enough to post here, that’s a lot. A mere 3 tenths of a percent were deemed decent enough to represent my studio.
Wow, long story short, here’s one of those images that never made it here (at least I don’t think it did).
I’m in this edgy mood these days.
Got a chance to shoot at a firefighter training burn today. Very cool. I’ll be doing a volunteer recruitment video with the footage I shot today and I’m pretty stoked at how the footage turned out.
I made it. Well, almost. I still have to post an image from today, but it was cool looking back on my year of photography.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 22,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 8 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
The season wouldn’t be complete without a production of The Nutcracker Suite.
Not much else to say…
I clearly didn’t know what I was looking for this morning during the lunar eclipse. Instead I got to see a pretty awesome sunrise with some low-lying fog. It made for some great scenery. I’ll take it.
