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.

This is a really short post. Enjoy. Last night and tonight I stepped out again to shoot the moon. Again, hand-held and at 2000mm (83x zoom). This next shot is a stacked image from four sequential shots taken last … Continue reading
This is an uncharacteristically short post. Enjoy. On July 28th, 2010, 5:28 am (Colorado time) I shot what is probably the best of all the moon photos I’ve taken. Here are two versions of the same photo, shot with … Continue reading
Yes, I’m still playing around with the camera. Between videos and photos, I’ve done about 1,200 captures, probably a few more videos than photos. Yes, I know you, my readers, are tired of hearing about it. By the way, for … Continue reading
As promised, sampling of videos . . . but before that, a couple of links and a photo or two or more. There will be a gallery at the bottom of the post with more samples. That’s not a bad … Continue reading
Sure, the Nikon P900 can focus from here to eternity (hey, that would make a great movie title!) but how does it handle and perform as an everyday camera? Well, I’m here to tell you a bit about it. No … Continue reading
Pay attention; there’s a questionnaire at the end of the post. The majority of people do not click on the images I put up in my posts. If they did, a new window or tab opens up showing the images … Continue reading
I was reading another blog and ended up leaving a long comment . . . which I did not want to waste. Ergo, this post. By the way, there is only one photo in this post . . . repeated another … Continue reading
Yessiree, boys and girls! Step right up as I try sounding like I know what I’m talking about! OK, I kid . . . I have no idea what I’m talking about, and I’m not about to pretend I do. … Continue reading
Warning: this is one of my marathon posts; it might load slow and it will take some time to read. It takes little time to skim. It will take no time at all to just read this paragraph and look … Continue reading
Those who follow my blog have read a number of posts documenting my recent trip to Florida. If not, that’s OK . . . I only mention them as a reference. All of the photos on those posts were taken, … Continue reading
Note: this will be boring for them who ain’t passionate about their photography (and maybe even for them). I opened the blinds, and looked out at a frosty landscape . . . I grab my camera, check the settings, open … Continue reading
This post is about how I process and present my photos. Prepare to be bored . . . Some of us share our photos in a number of different venues. I even occasionally print mine. In each case I take … Continue reading
So . . . in the comments section of one of my recent posts, there was a short discussion about shooting RAW versus JPG images. I gave a brief description (probably confusing), and linked some articles (they will be at … Continue reading
Readers might note an absence of illustrative photos . . . For one, I’m not at home. For another, the stuff I talk about in this post does not lend itself to photographic examples. If still interest, read on. This … Continue reading
“How do you take such mediocre pictures that fool people into thinking you are a talented photographer?“ In response to frequent queries, such as the above, I recently wrote a post about the photography equipment I use (click here), complete … Continue reading
