OK, my 365 photo project didn’t quite work out. Actually, it was an epic fail. I admit and accept responsibility. I guess now is the time I’m supposed to start making excuses for why the project failed, but I’m not going to do that. The problem wasn’t the project, it was me. So what went wrong and why should anyone … Read the rest
OK, so today I ran out of time so I had to cheat. It sucks being the head of the family sometimes, when everyone has something that “only you” can do. And of course it needs to be done TODAY. By the time I got home, it was already getting too dark inside for the Canon’s ISO range. So… I … Read the rest
I’m running into the limitations of my iPhone’s built in camera, so I’m trying a different one. This is a Canon PowerShot I’ve had for about 8 years. It’s nice and small so it’s easy to slip into a pocket. The main reason I’m switching is for the zoom lens. Should help a lot with getting “closer” when I’m out … Read the rest
Went for a new walking route today. My old routes were 3 to 3.5 miles, mostly on pavement. The new route is a little over 5 miles with about a third of that on dirt trail through a regional park. On one side of the park is the last remaining farm land in our area. I took this picture of … Read the rest
Today was super windy, so I didn’t go outside much. It finally calmed down around 17:00 so I went for a walk and got this sunset. About a mile from my house on a favorite walking trail.

Found this little guy on morning walk through my AO. Even with all the new construction going on there’s still some wildness to be found. Wish I could have gotten closer. Maybe I need a better lens.

OK, I’m officially bored out of my skull. Two days ago our governor governor announced that starting today, masks would be mandatory for everyone in a public place. Whatever. It’s too hot, too humid, and too damn windy to enjoy my back yard. My wife is bored too, and she’s decided it’s MY responsibility to keep HER entertained. Again, whatever. … Read the rest
A couple days ago I talked about cheap guns and why they’re not as good as more expensive guns – at least if you’re betting your life on one. That doesn’t mean you need to spend $1500 on a Daniel Defense or $2500 on a KAC SR-15 to have a reliable weapon. I decided to try my hand at a … Read the rest
I’m not a gun snob. I own my share of cheap guns. Heck, I even wrote a post extolling the virtues of cheap guns. But if you think your cheap gun (or whatever) is just as good as more expensive (dare I say better?) guns, you’re probably wrong. What really got me thinking about this was the Wuhan virus … Read the rest
Ever since this Wuhan virus crap started I haven’t been getting out enough. I went for a walk the other day though and came across a Great Blue Heron. He was standing next to a pond at a golf course close to my house. When I first saw him, he was so still I thought it was fake. As I … Read the rest
