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.

I came across THIS site and instantly reawakened my interest in astronomical observations. Er . . . I don’t mean making my tremendously insightful, wise, and deep commentaries on the nature of the Universe and Humans in particular. No, I mean looking at objects inhabiting … Continue reading

So, I’ve been trying out the D7500’s video capabilities using the 70-300mm kit lens. Not too bad, I would venture to say. First, a random photo from a previous post . . .
Note: this is a long post. If you just want the photos, go to the bottom and check out the gallery sans the witty, incisive, profound, and irreverent banter. This is the first post documenting our September 12, 2017, visit … Continue reading
People may have noticed I’ve not posted many phone photos lately. Sort of understandable, what with the new camera and all. But it doesn’t mean I’ve not snapped any photos. In May alone there are 387 photos and videos I … Continue reading
Almost every day I spend time sitting outside, on the patio, camera on hand and a coffee by my side, hoping to capture something interesting. This post is about boring photos from my patio. OK, one photo is from a … Continue reading
In the previous post, I showed this photo that was generated by taking a small photo, enlarging it using Topaz A. I. GigaPixel, and then cropping it to what you see. I was sufficiently impressed that I wanted to try … Continue reading
Yes, another post exploring stuff I think about when evaluating what photographic equipment I should buy. As such, this might is probably only of interest to photographers and only photographers who know less than I do (so, like five people). … Continue reading
