Like the world’s tidal waters, photographic creativity ebbs and flows for many of us. Sometimes creativity can use a jump-start, an artificial method to get the photographer to start looking at the world in a new way in order to facilitate, restart, refine, or improve your photography.

But I don't think I've ever been charged tax on a digital item.

I've been reading short stories since I finished Ready Player One. I think I have found my next novel.
 
I'm excited to announce the release of my first novel, The Last of the Ageless. To celebrate the launch, it's only $0.99.

Three centuries ago, humans and aliens fought for control of the Earth, ending in an apocalyptic disaster known as the Catastrophe...

Dalan is a shapeshifter
He hails from a tribe of mutants dedicated to preserving fading species by taking their forms. To become fully recognized as an adult, he must pass a trial in the wastelands far from home.

Nyr is a killer
When her lust for bounty yields an ancient artifact of mysterious origin, everything she knows is turned upside down. Once a hunter, now a pawn, she must learn to rely on others to survive what’s coming.

Korreth is a slave
Without any extra talents, he depends on nothing more than his strength and wits as he flees the army of mutants that enslaved him. He must return home to warn his people before the swelling ranks of monsters threaten his family.

...but in the shadows, a new threat rises—one that could end what little remains of civilization: The Last of the Ageless.

I once had a dog whose father was a black and white Border Collie and mother was a white German Shepherd.  That dog was so uber smart!  As is this Border Collie who knew the dying lamb needed help for its blood circulation.  Dogs are amazingly kind, aren't they?

<p> In an attempt to revive the newborn, Germán brought him inside and set him in front of the fire. Upon seeing the lamb, Dino, Germán’s Border Collie wasted no time in coming to lend a hand. Or rather a paw…</p>

 *This made me giggle*
The flying spaghetti monster exists in a more believable universe than one in which the OnePlus 2 ends up being the clearly superior device among 2016's new phones, let alone current 2015 devices, which I also think it truly does fall short against in multiple respects.
OnePlus is easily the world's most controversial smartphone company, and that's for good reason: they actively bring that controversy upon themselves. And... by David Ruddock in Editorials, News

I've decided to refocus certain things in my life, starting with paying attention to my creative outlets. Especially my blog. It's my main creative outlet and I need to core dump more often. Are y'all ready for that? Of course, I don't expect any of you new readers to be, but there are some of ...

Under the Stars
Summer is more than halfway over and I haven't gone camping at all. Zion and Arches are still on my list of National Parks to visit, but after the temperatures drop. Definitely after the temperatures drop.

If you needed to 'scrub' your social media then you really need to sit in front of the mirror and ask why you keep doing stupid things that you are embarrassed about.

Story
Tagline
"Genius might be described as a supreme capacity for getting its possessors into trouble of all kinds." - Samuel Butler
Introduction
All around Jill-of-all-trades, mistress of a few. I translate tech into English. Android enthusiast. Browncoat extraordinaire. You can ask me anything. 

What I'm Into
My tastes are constantly evolving. But I'm passionate about: 
  • STEM education
  • Android
  • Photography
  • Women in tech
  • Travel
  • 90s music
  • EDM
  • all things geeky - hardware, software, and entertainment.
  • Disney
I flirt, sometimes dangerously, but if you creep, you will be blocked. There, you've been warned. Proceed at your own risk.


"I think you mustn't tell your body, you mustn't tell your soul, 'I'm going to retire,'" Dee told The Associated Press in 2001. "You may be changing your life emphasis, but there's still things that you have in mind to do that now seems the right time to do. I really don't believe in retiring as long as you can breathe."
Bragging rights
"If you were any more of a super star than you already are, the world would end from the heat coming off of you igniting the air." -- Hank Yeomans
