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 …

2017 and what not.

I’m typically not a New Year’s resolution kinda guy. I don’t typically wait until a specific time of the year to set my goals and announce them to the world- seems artificially constrictive to me. That being said I do have some goals to set for once and it’s the start of a new year …

A little hiatus

I started this post right before Halloween but it looks like I never finished it.  So hey! I was gonna do a tiny hiatus 🙂 Hiatus is over! In quick summary of the last two months: – We moved to San Diego. .. Oh I guess that’s it.  I gotta tell ya doing Christmas at …

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 …

I might not agree with myself in a year

But I probably will. If you’ve known me for any length of time, you probably know I’m a big Aisha Tyler fan.  Not literally big; despite what the picture here portrays she’s VERY much taller than me.  Very much.  She crouched down to make me feel better.  The title of my post is a quote from …

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 …

It’s been (almost) exactly 2 years…

Since I’ve posted anything here. I could have held off another 12 days and made it exact but that seems overly arbitrary and a bit OCD.    I’ve fallen into the easy trap of using FB to power my little life stream, but the format there for deep thoughts just isn’t there.  Plus old content …
