A cat tale

Cats are almost as bad as grandkids. Sometimes they just beg to have their photo taken. So it was with Grayson that day, with his tail just so. Sign in to see full entry.

Bad moon rising

Last weekend saw the “super moon” even when the moon was at its closest to the Earth it will be for some time. It was supposed to be 14% larger and also brighter. Most who took photos of it will be disappointed. Point and shoot cameras aren’t going to do it justice, at least as far as I know. I used... Sign in to see full entry.

When to fool the camera

In the preceeding post, the first and last pictures, while seemingly straighforward posed their individual challenges. The first photo threw the auto focus into a tizzy. First it would focus far, then near, then not at all. Finally I remembered the trick, when I got the branches with the water drops... Sign in to see full entry.

Improve a poem

I just posted this poem. As I wrote it, I had the pictures in my mind I was trying to describe. While poetry is painting with words, I just couldn't help but think it might be better with those mind photos, so, since it really is raining, when I went to get the mail, I took the camera along and got...

Sometimes tell is not enough, you have to show

When I try to explain that my grandson is "riding" a Strider at 14 months, most people have no idea what I am talking about. It's not a bicycle, but it is a bicycle in the most basic sense. Almost as soon a kids can walk, they can Stride, or so the web site says. At any rate, here is what I am... Sign in to see full entry.

More about grandkids

These shots are the ones you don't want to get away! Our little guy is pretty expressive, but you have to know when he is going to smile or gesture with his hand while he is jabbering. Just after he was dressed in his Easter outfit, he was pretty smiley. Then, at the park he was telling a story and... Sign in to see full entry.

The thousand words thing

We all know what a picture is worth and its so true. For instance, if I told you I helped my son make hour-meter mounts, that would be about as helpful had I written it in Sanskrit. For example: He takes a piece of bar stock aluminum, runs it through a two step process in his CNC milling machine and... Sign in to see full entry.

Think of the past in the future

When I saw my grandson playing with grandma's calculator, it put me in mind of a similar photo I took of his dad nearly 30 years ago. I knew I had to take the shot so once again I assumed the identity of robo photo grandpa. The results are in, sometimes the extra effort is worth much more than one... Sign in to see full entry.

Home grown photos

While professional photographers are excellent at what they do, don't sell yourself short. Those "snapshots" we all have can tell stories that no studio can in a way those studios can't. Here are a few of my favorites of my favorite subject these days, my grandson. Here he snuggles his grandma.... Sign in to see full entry.

Studio shots

Even the most avid amateur photographers can't duplicate the work they do in studios. They have props and ideas that us rank hacks just can't access. Of course, in order to share these photos, you have to buy the rights to them, otherwise you won't be able to get duplicates on your own, or even... Sign in to see full entry.
