Snow Squalls



Now this is street photography. Very brief snow squalls rolled in strangely form the northeast across the city today.  The snow was just enough to barely register as a lighter tone on the asphalt surface of Morse Road.

And We're Back from New York City



We experienced an amazing, fun-filled, and busy weekend in Manhattan meeting Megan's long lost cousins from the island of Lifou.  We didn't have much time to spare, but we did find time to make it to the American Museum of Natural History, Times Square, and Rockefeller Plaza.

Happy Christmas!

In the Winter....



....my photographic attention turns to our backyard bur oak.  I can stretch the camera outside our upstairs bathroom window for some amazing perspectives.  This stiched panorama did the job of portraying just how massive and gnarled the limbs really are.

Took Many Pictures, but Produced Very Few Photographs

We live right next to a big,  gnary, 100+ year-old bur oak. 

Have you ever come back from a photo shoot thinking you took a bunch of great pictures? Maybe you didn't put everything you had into each picture, but you took so many, there had to be a few good ones in there?

That's the story of my weekend.  Lots of pictures, very few photographs.  I struggled to find something to share with you this evening.  Simply put, quantity does not equal quality.

What I've Gained from the North Side Fix



When the massive "North Side Fix" project began here in Columbus, I was not excited.  I have a reverse commute, and the fixes to the massive interchange just north of our house would actually increase my commute time.  But the silver lining?  At this time of year, I'm sitting in traffic with a stunning view of the sunset.  Just a little change has resulted in an entirely different point of view for my camera.
