Writing forces me to examine my views as cold words on a page.
My views are borne out of my experiences on this world.
My experiences are slowly adding to the short story that is my life.
While I still can, I choose to share some for anyone who might find them useful, or perhaps just entertaining.

Occasionally, I do stuff for Halloween. I might do a picture, or write a story, or both. Once again, this year it’s both. But, like last year, I’m not doing a photo. Rather, again I used a free action from PanosFX. … Continue reading
My last post was all about videos . . . as much as I want to get into the motion pictures business (lots of money in motion pictures), practicality and lack of any videography know-how will likely have me stick to still-photos, … Continue reading
This post will show two versions of videos; one version captured with the Nikon P900, and the other captured with the Samsung Note 8. One quick note about the Note 8 videos: they were shot in the default mode. There … Continue reading
A few people (none I can think of, but it sounds better than saying “no one”) noticed my blogging absence. Well, I’ve suffered a digital loss. Sunday morning had me waking up to an unresponsive phone. Pretty much all morning … Continue reading
Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness — a weekly offering of monochrome images submitted by multiple photographers — has a theme on the first week of each month. For the first Thursday of November (MM 4-26), it’s “In The Open?” This isn’t … Continue reading
The Coneheads were a joke that ran much too long on Saturday Night Live and even spawned a movie. But, this post is not about them; it’s about this: Don’t see it? How about now? Still don’t see it? Let … Continue reading
I’ve written before about one of the joys here in Hawaiʻi . . . bugs. By the way, THIS is a bit worrisome of an article. As much as I don’t like bugs (don’t hate them, either) I know they are of … Continue reading
I occasionally get bored . . . wait, check that. I occasionally have things on my mind and need to indulge in mindless and yet engaging activities. Some people might remember the October Flowers posts, one in color and one in B&W. … Continue reading
It’s been one month since we returned from our cruise to Alaska an in that time I’ve only done a couple of posts from our trip. One about using the P900 as the main travel camera and one giving a … Continue reading
Depending on who you listen to, you have definite ideas as to what is wrong with health care in this country. Depending on who you listen to, you have definite ideas about who is to blame. Depending on who you … Continue reading
Last year around this time I wrote about the Ironman triathlon held here in Kona each year. Well, it’s that time again, and tomorrow some few thousand men and women will jump in the waters of Kona bay, swim 2.4 … Continue reading
This will truly be a short post . . . a couple of photos and a gallery at the bottom of the post. I’ve added the B&W shots to the original SmugMug gallery HERE where one can get down to the … Continue reading
On any given year, readers of this blog would be treated to a slew of flower photos in posts that span the timeframe between June and October. That was the case for most years of this blog’s existence with the … Continue reading
Just a quick (ha!) post about random stuff. Let me begin with a sunset. I still don’t think the P900 captures sunsets as well as my D7000. I think at issue is the fact that I’m getting JPGs out of … Continue reading
