The Path of Light


Or should I have called it “The Path of Life”?  But notice that it is deceiving.  Looking at the static picture it looks like a straight path into the distance; but scroll down the page and it appears to be moving sideways.  Sometimes life is like that.


Signs of Winter Coming

This first picture was taken at 2:30 yesterday afternoon.  The second was taken at eight this morning.  The changes in the sky along with the leaves dropping, the frequent geese flying, and with the 45 degrees F. temperature this morning with a brisk breeze, are all signs of winter’s approach.

Calm Before the Perfect Storm

141016-130355_Plum Creek

I don’t mean a weather storm.  I am more concerned from an economical, financial, climate, social, political, or religious fundamentalist perspective; but primarily from some combination of these factors.

Flight of the Heron


I was out before sunrise this morning when a Heron flew over.  I only had the Olympus E-PL5 with the Panasonic 20 mm lens on it with me but I got a picture.

Thoughts about Publishing Frequency


On some days I just take pictures because I like the colors and then put them away for possible future publishing.  I try to have a few of these waiting on my hard drive so that I can continue posting almost daily, even when I haven’t made any new pictures recently.

I am conflicted about publishing as soon as I get a picture or about spreading them out to fill the no picture days.  One of the reasons I’m conflicted is that my pictures and articles sometimes get out of sequence; i.e., I may take the picture and say something about it and then store it for future use but find that in the interim I have posted other things that moved beyond the stored article.  One solution has been to produce time-less articles and pictures, but I don’t always like to do that.

Another conflict I have is that some days I am on a roll and am more creative than on other days.  Sometimes I am anxious to publish pictures even though it means multiple posts on some days; but I rarely do that because I am afraid that I will need it another day.

In addition there is the opposite concern.  I feel I often publish a poor picture or write some dribble just because I don’t want too many days to go by without publishing.

I haven’t decided yet, but I am now changing towards publishing as often, or not, as I have a picture of interest or something to share.  If this means multiple posts on some days and gaps of many days with nothing, so be it.  I don’t know, but I might also slow down and go for better quality or interest.  Since most of my viewers now subscribe and get an e-mail when I publish, this shouldn’t affect them too much.  I am afraid that it might affect me more in that I will slow down and see and find fewer pictures without the pressure.  But maybe not.  Not having any pictures or articles “in-the-bank” might drive me to taking a camera out more frequently.  In either case, it will be the real me and will still result in my hodgepodge of subjects around my diverse interests, activities, and viewers.

PS … I had this article stored and waiting for when I had a gap.  Yesterday I did take a lot of pictures but they were of an event here at Homewood.  I have turned them over to the staff to use as they wish in internal documents.

I had to go out to Hillside Medical Building for some routine medical tests and while walking through the building I noticed these views.  Since I am a sucker for reflections, I pulled my pocket camera out of my rain jacket pocket and took these two images.  I was in a hallway with windows on both sides (the source of the reflections).  These are the views out of both sides of the hallway.

Floating Leaves & Thoughts

Lately I have been pondering over some changes in my photography and blogging, but I am coming to realize that little will change … or that it will be slow to happen; except for the economy.  I am afraid that when the people wake up and understand the world environment better that the changes could be drastic.
