This is freakin cool!

I've been doing some 'junk drawer' culling (OK, so about 4 junk drawers ... don't judge me) over the past couple of days and have found a dozen or so old photos which I didn't really know what to do with. I downloaded this app and within minutes I was able to scan about half of them into Google Photos. So far, it seems to work great.

Great idea. Recommended.

+Terry McNeil you're welcome. There are hundreds of photos of the girls, from when they were little, that I don't have available to me. Like you said, this might give me a chance to easily capture them without too much effort.

A couple weekends ago, +Cilla C took me to her favorite new place for experiencing, and shooting, the sunset in north-east Alabama.

Guntersville is about a 30 minute drive from homebase so we hit the road about an hour before sunset to give us time to find a decent location and to set-up our equipment. Cilla, unfortunately, forgot her camera's SD card so pouted a bit ended up taking some great shots with her phone and also acted as my assistant (I truly am spoiled).

I've been struggling with the technical aspects of photography of late so it was nice to spend a bit of extra time to frame the shot and to make sure that I had my camera settings the way I wanted them. I also experimented with exposure bracketing and using the remote shutter release that Cilla bought for me (see above re: being spoiled rotten).

This is one of the shots that I captured.

Happy Monday.

Oops.

Or perhaps it's akin to how many of us pretend to not be home when the Johovah's Witnesses ring the door bell. :-D

shhhh If we're really quiet, they'll think we're not home and move on to the next house.

Just kidding ... "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Eh?"

Dad takes daughter trick-or-treating on plane so she doesn't miss Halloween

Do yourself a favor and take a 60 second break from the <social/political/humanitarian outrage du jour> and read something that'll make you smile.

If, on the other hand, you believe that stories such as this are planted in the media with the intent of distracting us "sheep" from focusing on the <social/political/humanitarian outrage du jour>, might I suggest that you keep on scrolling.

How is it that it's November already?

Pictures of the girl collecting candy from passengers on her flight went viral.

Generations

Francis Joseph, Robert Francis, Sean Robert

Frank
My paternal grandfather, Frank to his friends and family, lived a good and modest life. Along with my grandmother, he raised my dad and my aunt in Kitchener, Ontario. He was quick with a joke, a smile, a laugh, and always had a story to tell. As a little boy, I liked to sit on his knee and watch the 'mmercials drinking my shlockit milk.

He was a salesmen. And his natural, easy charm afforded him the opportunity to sell high-end wood veneers to the furniture manufacturers that once dotted the small towns in and around southern Ontario until the day he retired.

While my grandmother was not, having lost her battle with cancer in 1991, he was around to meet 4 of his great grandchildren. They called him Grandpa Grandpa. He'd light up when they did.

In early 2002 he lost his battle with cancer, including prostate cancer. He was 86.

For the 7th straight year, I'm participating in Movember to help raise funds for and awareness of men's health. Not only am I growing a cheesy moustache again this year, which I'll be sure to post a picture of before I shave it off, but I'm also doing the MOVEmber challenge, which encourages men to get physically active and exercise throughout the month (and beyond).

If you're so inclined, you can donate to the Movember Foundation via http://mobro.co/heff. This year, I've teamed up with +Isabelle Fortin​, who is once again leading the charge with her Ladies of Movember campaign (https://plus.google.com/+IsabelleFortin/posts/V7DtgHWB6Hs?sfc=false).

Spent a couple of hours down by the lake (Ontario) earlier this evening, hoping to catch the #supermoon. Lots of other folks there too, many with their cameras and tripods at the ready.

As a Canadian, I've grown up in the shadow of US media. I spent many hours as a young lad watching ABC, NBC, and CBS broadcasting out of Buffalo. My father was a US resident (and Canadian citizen) who fell into the abyss of Fox News in the final decade of his life. So knowing what's going on in American news, politics, and popular culture has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. And now, living both next to and, increasingly, in the US, it's difficult to not be exposed to it all.

So as much as I've tried not too, I have, on occasion, succumbed to the rubbernecking instincts elicited by the train wreck that has been the 2016 US Presidential election. That my Google Now and Google News "suggested readings" reflects this, isn't a surprise.

What is a bit of a surprise however, is that along with the typical coverage I'd expect, some of the content that Google is now suggesting to me is from sources heavy influenced by conspiracy theory and government/racial paranoia.

Which makes me wonder ... Does a [reluctant] interest in US politics correlate with an interest in conspiracy theory? What do the folks that intentionally immerse themselves in US political news get exposed to as a byproduct of that interest? What role do Google's algorithms play in bringing stuff like this to more susceptible members our society?

(Also ... I find it humorous that this article's author seems to think that our smartphones tracking our location is some sort of secret that he's just now exposing to the world.)

I listened to this interview on the CBC the other day about why people believe in conspiracy theories and what type of person is more likely to believe in conspiracy theories.

In conversation with +Cilla C last night, I joked about my dawning realization that I seem to enjoy taking the photos far more than I do the process of importing, culling, sorting, editing, and creating the final image.

In this particular case, we were exploring the countryside in the mountains of southern West Virginia last weekend when Cilla spotted a couple of roosters up the road. I went to investigate. As I approached, the two of them got skittish and hid in the brush beside the fence at the side of the road. I stalked them for a bit until I was able to capture a few shots. I enjoyed the challenge of finding an angle through the grasses while they spent their time keeping an eye on me and keeping their distance. Having the BAL (big ass lens) attached definitely helped.

If you're into photography, which do you enjoy more .... the capture or the post capture? How do you stay motivated to work on the part(s) that you might struggle with?

Story

Son. Brother. Father. Friend.
Introduction
I am a son. I am a brother. I am a father. I am a friend.

I am the father of two strong and dynamic young women, just now emerging from childhood. Just over a decade ago, I decided to be a stay-at-home dad. They were 2 and 4 when I started, 4 and 6 when I finished, and it was the most fulfilling two years of my life.

Outside of a short stint in the southern US when I was 19, I've lived my entire life, born and raised, in Canada.

Went for a quick lunch and really enjoyed the food. New ownership seems to be working hard to attract an adult crowd, which is great.
