"Use those talents you have. You will make it. You will give joy to the world. Take this tip from nature: The woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except those who sang best."

"Emotion is ‘recognition’. When treasured moments are identified in the jungle of our personal history during a visual or aural encounter, we capture magic sparks from our past, arousing flashes of insight and revealing an inner flare. These instants of recognition may kindle enthralling emotion and fulfilling inspiration."

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).

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.

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.

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.
