Windows 8.1 Refresh
Started having some problems with my Windows 8.1 laptop. Troubleshooting lead to problems with some system files. System File Checker couldn't fix the problems, so I did the Windows 8.1 equivalent of the older Windows Repair, which is now called Refresh. Th...

Some Fixes for a Slow Mac
This morning I came across a post over at MacDailyNews: "When your Mac slows down, give it a tune-up" . The timing on this post couldn't be better, as recently I've noticed my own Mac displaying the beachball-of-death far too frequently. I'll give you a ver...

This is something everyone needs to know and understand.
Need to use an image but not sure if you have the legal and ethical right to do so? Understanding the laws for using images can be a bit tricky, especially because there is wiggle room within the laws. And, with the mass distribution of images on the internet, it's no wonder we're all asking the the same question over and over again: can I use that picture? Whether for your business presentation, your school project, or your organization's brochu...

A small break in the storm that is currently passing through. The water stream that was coming off the corner of the roof was about 4" in diameter. A whole lot of water in a short period of time.

Introduction
"The next time you go outside, stop and take a look around and see what catches your eye."

My daughter said that, and its an amazing truth. Photography has taught me to look at the world differently, and its given me a way to express myself. For me photography is not a job, I don't make my living at it, for me, its simply a way to share the world as I see it with others. Its my creative outlet.

I often find myself envious of professional photographers, out there doing what they truly love, but then I remember, I do get to do something for a living that I truly enjoy, and I get to save photography for that little something extra.
