I am tired

Life is behind (as per usual!) but when isn’t it? A new job for me. A new career for Paul. A new household member  (Selena). Our 5 year anniversary together / 2 year wedding anniversary. The good news is we’re settling back into a routine just in time for my 39th birthday.  How the hell …

My Precious

Working on photography processing tonight and I look up to see this photo hanging on my wall .. I can honestly say this is one of the top 3 pictures I’ve ever taken.  I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of looking at it.

Where in the world is Mike?

Well I’m in San Francisco, obviously.   Or perhaps not so obviously?  We travel around a lot so it can be hard to say where we are on any given Sunday.  Today though?  I’m sitting at my desk, Cat firmly ensconced in my lap with a stunning view of our high rise neighborhood behind my …

Storytellers

I’ve always been fascinated with the concept of storytellers and how they’ve evolved over time.   I’ve been a heavy reader since first grade when I taught myself the basics.  I never really learned how to sound out words, I’d point to words and get someone to say them and I learned to recognize the shape …

Why do I take so many damn pictures?

Good question! Glad no one asked. It’s definitely not to make money. It’s easy to assume that no one can make money as a photographer anymore with the proliferation of tools that lower the bar of entry, but photography has almost never been about the technical prowess of the photographer.  Instead it’s about telling a story …

I really need a shower. And a nap.

After a 3 day weekend camping it’s looking like a quiet week this week. I’m looking forward to having tons of time to work on my backlog of photos to process and develop as I’m already 2 trips behind and if I’m not careful it’s going to get even more out of hand at the …

Memories

So tomorrow closes out my first week living in the Bay Area- coincidentally enough my cable is hooked up, furniture delivered, and my first delivery of groceries also hit tomorrow. I also want to go on record as saying that grocery delivery is the SHIT. There is no part of me shopping online and having …

This never fails to make me laugh

This never fails to make me laugh

Seriously though. This pic is a bit of an oldie- I took it about two years ago. The lion laying there with one foot in the air is somehow the epitome of laziness. I gotta say some days I’m jealous.

It’s been a year already?

I was playing around with updating my site layout when I noticed it’s been over a year since I’ve posted anything. I didn’t think its been THAT long, but apparently my temporal awareness is as bad as my spatial awareness (ie, I’m a clutz). So let’s post something(s)! Something #1 – something old I’m turning …
