Happy Canada Day everyone!

I am a geocacher, which means that the world is my playground. I am a proud Canadian who lives in North Carolina, so my writing is full of extra u's, and oddly pronounced 'outs'. I also have an inferiority complex and a penchant for self deprecating humour. View my complete profile ...

This is a "Behind The Scenes" of a shot I did for the +Chrysta Rae Scavenger Hunt.  It is one of the most complex shots I've ever done, so I figured I'd document the process.

#Photography   #Lego  #GrimReaper #SuicideIsPainless  
For the 15th round of the +Chrysta Rae Photo Scavenger Hunt, one of the items on the hunt list was Hang In There. The idea for Hang In There came to me relatively quickly, but it would prove to be one of the most complex photos I've ever created. I figure I'd document some of the process of ...

Personal news: I have been accepted as an apprentice in The Arcanum.

Should be an exciting and educational ride.

#TheArcanum  #Photography #Yoda
No, there is too much. Let me sum up. The Arcanum is the brain child of famed photographer +Trey Ratcliff. The idea is to utilize the age old idea of the Master/Apprentice relationship, super-charge it using modern technology, and use the whole package to improve ones skills in photography.

it runs as long as I want it to.  I suspect I'll be at it for at least a year, maybe more.

Note to self:

When mixing the dog food, do not lick the spoon.  It will be unpleasant.

Was that a case of "learn from my experience"?

Day one of some of the best photography you're gonna see all in one place.  Check it out!
 
We are officially on DAY ONE of REVEALS
from the 2015 - 15TH ROUND
of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!!!

What you are about to experience 
over the course of the next 10 days is pretty awesome.
We play a game - 500 photographers and myself - a photography scavenger hunt.

What  is the scavenger hunt?
Only the most inspiring, creative and fun way to learn your camera, push your limits, experiment, and shoot things in ways you didn't think you could.

I host this event a few times a year for anyone of any level of photography to participate.
I open the game up to 500 Photographers
I give you 10 items to shoot 
I give you a period of time to shoot and enter your photos.
Then I have them judged by amazing photographers  

I then open the albums up to the public - every morning over the course of 10 days. 
There are 10 categories:
This is the first - the "*BLISS*" album.

This event is an amazing way to use your camera in new ways. 
It gets you seeing things in new ways,
It helps improve your photography skills, 
gives you a huge audience, 
and let's everyone celebrate each other's successes. 
Make new friends,
and be a part of a community of photographers who care about each other, teach each other, and inspire one another.

The sign up for the next round of the scavenger hunt will be announced on day 10 of reveals from this round.

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+. 
Support, encouragement  friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed. 
We become a family over the course of the month. 

This is a negative-free zone - I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited. 
Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images 
and put thought into them and tried their best. 
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(NONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

With that - I present to you the "*BLISS*" album,
1 item seen in 254 different ways.

Our plucky heroes have stumbled across a mysterious and devious stranger on the way to a geocache.  What will happen next?

The action is heating up, so I'm publishing the next 3 chapters of my novel: The Legend Of Dawson's Mine.  

Check out the free serialization now.  Or, ya know, not.  I am not the boss of you (unless my kids are reading this, then absolutely yes I am the boss of you).

I'm not normally, but there are a few country bands that stand out.

Corb Lund is one of em.  They are kinda addictive, actually. I suspect its the subject matter that gets me.  Not to mention pure raw talent, and a quirky sense of humour.

Story
Tagline
Geocacher, explorer, resident alien.
Introduction
It is my lot in life to resemble a cross between Indiana Jones, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, and Chewbacca (what a wookie!)

I am a geocacher, which means that the world is my playground.

I am a proud Canadian who lives in North Carolina, so my writing is full of extra u's, and oddly pronounced 'outs'. I also have an inferiority complex and a penchant for self deprecating humour.
Bragging rights
I can levitate birds. No one cares.
