    Lightroom Archives: Ivy Creek Trail

    I remember walking through the woods on this trail deep in the woods in Colorado thinking this is the greenest-green I’ve ever seen. Looking at it years later I still think the same thing. Here is the original details with some explanation of the image above if you are interested. This is also near Bachelor Loop, which…

    Trying to Start a Newsletter in 2023?

    Can You Build Subscribers in Such a Saturated Web Space? Is this the most overused word in the Internet writing space these days, a Newsletter? I’ve kinda always hated the word. It depicts such formality. News AND a letter. It also comes with such authoritative knowledge in the chosen topic space. I had questions… Can You…

    The Making of a Raised Garden Bed for Mint Herbs

    We are starting to get into the super long hot 100° summer days here in Zone 8(b), so we are still planting seedlings. This year we started converting all of our garden beds (for veggies, herbs, or essential oil flowers) to raised beds, because of our super-sandy soil, and this time the Mint family was…

    Where Would You Go?

    If you won two free plane tickets, where would you go? Do daily writing prompts drive you to write more? I love all different kinds of daily writing prompts, sorta. My only gripe is they tend to make assumptions and generalizations in an attempt to hit the biggest audience and to appeal to the most…

    Air Force One and a Reason to Still Shoot in RAW

    I took this image of Air Force One way back in 2003 at, what was then known as, Las Vegas McCarran Airport, just as it started its takeoff roll. President George W Bush was on board and had flown in a few hours earlier for, apparently, very short meetings. It was an amazing site. His Boeing…

    Figs are in Harvest Getting 2-4 Cups a Day

    We planted a fig tree years ago hoping that some day we might get a fig. Now, this tree provides a ton of shade, but in mid-to-late July, it also produces about 4 processed cups of figs a day. And this goes on for at least a month! As the life cycle seasons of this…

    On Technology Iterations

    I just finished up a set of articles on darkness. This was a group of articles on the subject surrounding darkness. It started as we left the light of Daylight Savings Time and then walked through how to take photos in the dark, our love or hate for “dark mode” on devices, a quick look…
