Happy Mother's Day to you +Kari Johnson​!

This is from Kari's most recent birthday, back in December. Taken with my Nexus 5.

Love, your husband. :-)

PS My apologies to the other 5 children who didn't get picked to be in the photo with you. ;-)

Mammatus Clouds

Caught this on my smartphone before my walk this past Wednesday. Big storms eventually passed through, but all they brought to our property was some much needed rain!

Hope everyone had a terrific weekend! :-)

My friend +Roger Albani​ is such a gifted photographer and I am soooo grateful G+ was created, because I met him here way back when it started up. And I have been enjoying his lovely photos and his friendship every since. :-)

Watchers

My wife does not like this tree. The crows love this tree. My wife wants it cut down, NOW. Sooooo, crows please enjoy your perch while it lasts. She who must be obeyed, must be obeyed (why? Because I love her!!). ;-)

I also wanted to drop a quick comment in here for everyone who was kind enough to comment on my post.

I "obey" my wife, because I love her and I want to please her. We joke around here on G+ (mostly about color vs black and white photography) and joking can certainly be taken out of context. So if I in anyway left you with the impression that Kari is "the bad guy" here, my apologies to her and to you. Truth be told, we will ultimately make a rational decision together regarding this tree at the appropriate time. Have a great week everyone! :-)

I caught this on my smartphone a few days ago. Haven't touched my DSLR in weeks. :-( Caught the busy bug at work!

HOPE EVERYONE IS WELL AND THANKS FOR THE BIRTHDAY WISHES!!

Butterflies - My Photography Nemesis

Yesterday I was not feeling very happy towards butterflies. I went out to see if I could get a shot or two of the many that were flying around the field next to our house. I came back empty handed. Most people think of them as a happy thought. To me, they meant futility. 

Don't get me wrong, I am very grateful for the pollination that they do. And they are very beautiful to look at. But they are really hard to photograph. If I got close enough to them (which was rare,) they would fly away just as I got my tripod set up.

Apparently the time to shoot them is when it is cold (which was the case with this little guy.) or when it is windy. Having captured a few shots of butterflies today, I am feeling kinder towards them.

Okie Thunderhead

Nexus 5 quick capture. Every time I take a smartphone shot, even if it turns out, I feel like I should have used my DSLR.

Does anyone else have this happen to them? And I mean no offense to smartphone photographers by way of this question!!

*Grilling"

Got some yard work done today! Now I get to sit back and check out this view to the east of our house, while I grille some burgers. Ahhhhhhh! :-)

PS I wish I could take a photo of the smell I'm smelling. LOL

+Walter Gawronski​ Just think what a smartphone could do with this lens technology! ;-)
A team of Harvard physicists is developing a completely flat lens that receives light with complete accuracy.

Okie Skies

My son +Dylan Johnson​ captured this beautiful sky a couple nights ago! I was driving home from work and glancing at it in my rear view mirror, so I was glad he got this shot, as it was gone by the time I got home.

Hope you like it! I decided not to change it to monochrome, since it's his photo and all. LoL

The eleven year old brother fires back and lands a direct hit on the retreating fifteen year old sister.

All the while, the five year old sister manages to stay out of the battle entirely. ;-)

Trying to see the world differently, through my camera's lens
Introduction
Personally

My wife Kari and I have been married for 25 years and we have six wonderful children.

I enjoy photography, sports, music and reading. I am also a newbie tech geek, especially as it relates to photography and social media for business and personal use.

Professionally

I worked for the same insurance company for 18+ years before departing in 2007. It was a tremendous experience, but alas, it was time for me to move on!

From 2007 until the present, I have actively served in two nonprofit organizations. Volunteering with these organizations has taught me a lot about interpersonal relationships and the demands of running a small business. But even more important, these opportunities have taught me that there is much more to life than earning money.

I have also been providing consulting and expert witness services for plaintiff attorneys and insurance companies when property and casualty claims disputes are litigated.

Most recently, I have been working for a company called Hyperquest.

Google+

I have met so many wonderful people here on G+! My primary interests on this platform are photography, technology and business. And oh what a wealth of information this amazing platform has to offer on each of these "subjects"!

I don't post a lot, but here's the schedule I will try to follow when/if I do post content:
Monday - A b&w photo for the Monochrome Monday theme
Wednesday - Participate in the WordlessWednesday theme

I will also randomly share some of my favorite posts/photos throughout the week.
