If you have spent anytime around the QH you know this is my favorite subject…
“The Little Red Lighthouse and The Great Gray Bridge” It is a wonderful book

And how more opposite could they be? Then add in the large ship and small boat…?


8-8-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture

This weeks challenge is: Texture. (You knew that)

A little change in ISO and a little change in shutter speed certainly changes the texture of the water in Blackfish Creek.

ISO 6400 – f/5.3 – Shutter: 1/2 second



ISO 140 – f/5.6 – Shutter 15 seconds


A world of textural difference

3-31-14 Made It 25% Around The Sun, Again

Yes, indeed we did.

I needed to prepare a portfolio for the last class with Amy Arbus tomorrow, 50% work from the class and 50% work of our own. While putting it together I fell back in love with this picture. This image and I have a very dysfunctional relationship. I love it then I hate it and refuse to even look at it. I printed it out today and fell in love again.



If you were eligible and needed it, I hope you signed up for the Affordable Care Act Health Insurance and didn’t let the negative Nellies and people of bad faith scare you off. Before you blow up at me, what exactly are they offering you in its place? The old system we all agree is awful? What is the definition of insanity again?

Will The ACA work? Damned if I know but I am sure it won’t if people insist on sitting in the corner, kicking their heels and holding their breath.
