Good Morning

Last night I posted my Photo 101 assignment. It wasn’t fun or happy. But it was where my head was. This morning, I want to assure you that my head is not always in that place. My life is full of joy! I don’t sit around my house grieving or thinking about grief.  If you…

For my long time readers, there are only two more days of this class. I hope my daily posting of pictures hasn’t bored you. Today’s assignment is: Today, show us an edge — a straight line, a narrow ridge, a precipice. Today’s Tip: To make sure your edge packs a punch, use a photo editing…

The round wall makes an interesting element. Changing to monochrome looks even more interesting! While out about town today, I shot a picture of this little castle. In…

Ron is demo’ing in a parking lot of a large commercial office complex. Not…
