Testing. This is the third time that I’ve tried designing this post. It doesn’t help to save your work because it is saved in some other format. So, you start over, And, over. Some comments. Anyone who has taken the time to reply to my WordPress-based rants has nothing good to say about the Block […]


Simple. I kept it simple. I saw it. I filled the frame. The pressed the button. I made the photograph. I did almost minimal work in post production. And, I was done. Simplicity is often how you know that you are headed in the right direction. Often they say that anything that is worth doing […]

Discussions. Between friends. Friends who are photographers. We talked about this and that. Then, we started talking about how we move from the photographers that we are to the photographers that we want to be. We are all photo veterans. We probably have about 175 years of experience between us. We all seem to want […]
