Weekly Photo Challenge: UNLIKELY

This week’s photo challenge is: “[S]hare a photo of something¬†unlikely. An object or person in an unlikely place, an unpredictable experience, a serendipitous accident…” * So this is a vaguely depressing take on the photo challenge (sorry about that!!!) Let me preface it by saying that I get that crows (and hawks and whatever else) […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: LINES

This week’s photo challenge: “…[P]ay attention to lines.” * This was meant to be a shot of my daughter’s bubble (you can kind of see it if you look closely, straight out from her feet, toward the fence.) That didn’t turn out so well! It IS a nice shot though, if what you’re focusing on […]

My February Reading List

As previously noted, I decided at the beginning of this year that I would log the books I read each month of 2018 – just for fun! I’m interested to see what a list like that looks like at year’s end. The January list is here. Before I get in to February’s, let me just […]

New Old Music

I’ve devoted a lot of time over the last couple of days to working through a photography tutorial (this one, on photo compositing.) I like it! I’m learning a lot. I’ll definitely have some things to say about that (about photo compositing, and about the tutorial itself) when I’ve gotten all the way through the […]
