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.

A not-so-quick post . . . Those are leaves just under the water surface (some are poking through the surface). I picked a photo at random from a group of similar shots. I had planned on a quick post, but … Continue reading

In case anyone forgot or didn’t read Part 1 or Part 2, this and the two previous posts are about software (Aurora HDR 2019) geared toward processing scenes shot with bracketed exposures. The software is by Skylum and some might … Continue reading
