365 Day 20-22: Just Post It Already

365 Day 20-22: Just Post It Already

Ok this is a cheat post. I’m a little behind because of last minute busy work prepping for our quick family trip to the Great White North. This post will have three images, and it titled as such in homage to that person who said it. (I told you I’d use it!) D300s || Nikkor [...]


365 Day 19: Yellowjacket?

365 Day 19: Yellowjacket?

I’m really not that adventurous. I am admittedly scared of wasps and will flail like a madman when they buzz around me. I was about an inch away from the bad boy for this shoe. Here’s the kicker…its actualy dead! This wasp somehow managed to die away in this exact position after its nest was [...]

365 Day 18: Last Concert

Sammy’s last orchestra concert for the year, she come a long way! She is very much enjoying playing the strings and will likely be taking acoustic guitar lessons this year to further her learning. Any reccommendations for schools? D300s || Micro Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 G || 1 /100s @ f/2.2 ISO 800 || Capture NX2 [...]


365 Day 17: Real Beauty

365 Day 17: Real Beauty

Took this shot on my iPhone- at this time, while other parts of the Southern US are getting ravaged by storms and tornados, we are treated to this. One of the many beauties of life; a vibrant sunset. I used Camera+ with the Clarity and Vibrant filters


365 Day 16: Juss One of Them Days

365 Day 16: Juss One of Them Days

Finally caught up on this project. It’s such a gloomy day today; dark, wet, and rainy- a recipe for laziness. I’m out on lunch with the wifey, a welcome change from my cubicle and the gloomy mood. Can I just go back to bed? Normally I’m a huge fan of quiet storms and the calmness [...]

My son Atraiu was wearing this old school Run DMC shirt. Made me happy to see him wearin it after a long day of work yesterday. I took this shot exclusively with Instagram for the iPhone, I used the Gotham filter.


365 Day 7: 12 Weeks 1 Day

One of  many surprises that life has thrown at me. Can’t believe its been 12 weeks already. This shot was lit with window light camera left. Converted to JPEG with Capture NX2, exported with Adobe LR2. D300s || Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 G || 1 /80s @ f/2 ISO 200 +2.0EV || Capture NX2 + Adobe [...]

365 Day 5: The Clan

Late nights make for a late post. Hung out with the entire clan yesterday at the house of Henny. My kids wanted to sleep over with all their cousins so the wifey and I had a nice quiet night alone. I thought about how different it will be when the youngest of all our buggers [...]

365 Day 2: The Little Things

365 Day 2: The Little Things

Macro Photography is one of my favorite types of photography. The ability to see things on a much smaller scale is an experience that never ceases to amaze me. Simply stated, Macro Photography is close-up photography, usually of very small objects. Imagine looking at an image of a tiny spider so clear and close-up, that [...]


WI Will Not Go Silently Into the Night!

WI Will Not Go Silently Into the Night!

The granite statehouse in Madison is the only one of its kind. Rising up between Lake Mendota and Lake Monona, it is the only State Capitol built on an isthmus – a narrow piece of land that separates two bodies of water. Over the past several weeks, thousands of people have flocked to Wisconsin’s Capitol [...]

The Notion of Motion

According to Newton’s Laws of Motion, the tendency of a body in motion is to keep moving, while a body at rest has a tendency to sit still. With momentum, it’s easy to keep moving, more so than it is to start moving from a dead stop. By melding the laws of science with our [...]


Good Coffee and Musings

I woke up this morning groggy, from only a few hours of sleep. My saving grace was the perk of French pressed coffee to keep me sensibly awake. The smell of fresh grounds is too irresistible, and unlike any Starbucks / Tim Horton’s / Dunkin’ Donuts brew; the taste is richer, and the effect of [...]


Where’s My Reset Button?

Way back in time, when I could spend hours upon hours honing my video game skills, I remember playing a game for days that provided countless hours of frustration. The game was “Battletoads”.  It was developed by the now famous developers, Rare, Inc. It all started with a classmate of mine bragging that he played [...]
