Planning my first shoot for the year.

It looks like – against my better judgement – I’m meeting a friend (hi, Steve!) and going over to Fort Monroe at o’dark thirty next Sunday morning for a sunrise shoot. If the weather is decent, i.e., dry. It will be bad enough being up at that hour without lousy weather, too. Cold is ok;…

Who knew WordPress provided an end-of-year report?

I said I wouldn’t post anything until January, but I wasn’t expecting WP to write a post for me! The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,300 times in 2014. If it were…

I’m over Etsy.

I’ve tried my best for a couple of years, but it’s time to face the truth: my shop on Etsy is going nowhere. I’ve put it in vacation mode and will be closing officially on New Year’s Eve. I’m still a photographer; nothing can change that. This blog, and, will remain active. I don’t plan on…

That feeling when you realize that, during a computer overhaul, you accidentally deleted 200 fall photos… So I decided I needed a little photography break, but now it’s over.

Fall Leaves – Peaking Soon

I’m trying to merge my schedule, peak fall color, and the weather report to find the best day to head up to Williamsburg and the Colonial Parkway to shoot some fall color. Tomorrow’s out, as I have two meetings and there’s a 90% chance of rain. Friday through Monday, however, with forecasted temps in the low 60’s…

Rocket Launch

I’m going over to Norfolk tonight to photograph a rocket launch. It’s another chance to break out the 80-200 and see what it can do. I don’t know what to expect; I’ve never seen a launch. If I get anything good I’ll post it here tomorrow.

Fall Photography

Here in southeastern Virginia, the leaves on a few trees are starting to turn color here and there. It’s pathetic. It’s fall! I want to see fall color! I’m thinking about heading up towards DC later this week. It might actually look (and feel) like fall up there.   As always, comments are welcome. I’d like…
