Week Seven - 2017 in Photographs
Day 43   This week begins and ends with a sunrise. And then luck and location gave me the opportunity to photograph some wildlife in the area. Deer seem more prevalent then elk currently. The elk are probably still up above me because it has been a warm win...

Dark Times Journal - Save Some of Yourself
I have discovered through past events I am the person who goes on automatic pilot and does what needs to be done until the immediate crisis is over. That is the good news. The bad news is when the crisis is over I will then go off screen and toss my cookies...

Week Six - 2017 in Photographs
Day 36   Confession. I have no photo to post for day 43. I have had issues with getting out there with the camera. And today, since it didn't snow as promised, I may do still life photography as I clean up the flat surfaces in the studio. My attention is de...

Week Four - 2017 in Photographs
Day 22 For the love of trees. As a child I was the first in my class to draw trees with branches; not the trunk with a balloon of green over the top. Or even the trunk with limbs coming off at right angles. For some reason even as young as five I knew there...

The Dark Times Journal - It Was the Worst of Times
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, ...

Week Three - 2017 in Photographs
Day 15   I promise more color in the third week of the year 2017. But this has been a strange January. Even the snow as been atypical. The weather services have not been able to make up their minds on forecasts. Wintry mix is over used and rain/snow mix onc...
