Sunset musings

I’m here in Berkeley, California to get my Master of Divinity degree. A sweet irony for me is that I don’t have to be enrolled in any school to find divinity. It’s on stark display daily in this beautiful place. Tonight as I walked west from campus toward home, I was watching this spectacular sunset… Continue reading Sunset musings

You go rest. I’ll wait here for you.

I've lit this candle to do the work. You rest awhile.

Sometimes I want someone to do this for me.   Goodnight beautiful Sun. Rest. Your body must ache from all that work. Day after day you burn, always shining, never asking anything from me. Day after day, you show up Day after day, you move Day after day, you lie down knowing Tomorrow must come and so you Cheerfully… Continue reading You go rest. I’ll wait here for you.

Photography: Walk with me through a labyrinth

These photos are from a recent trip I took to an amazing conference. Rethinking Everything is equal parts Burning Man, SXSW, and TED – with the central theme being children (specifically, most attendees are Unschooling families). Weird enough for you?

It’s now the end of… Continue reading From Malaysia to Vietnam

The Leap…

    When you’re in Cincinnati, Ohio, don’t miss the opportunity to visit Devou Park. Located just across the Ohio River in Covington, Kentucky, it offers my favorite view of downtown. Be sure to get there early in the day if you’re taking pictures, as late morning light can be unkind, and the pretty view… Continue reading The Leap…

Good light and bad weather

    The best light for outdoor landscape and architecture photography  happens just before sunrise. Despite temperatures of 5 degrees Fahrenheit this morning and gusty winds, I was rewarded for going out. We’ve had gray, overcast skies for quite awhile now, so when I saw the forecast for some sun, I wanted to make the most… Continue reading Good light and bad weather

Homeschooling, Photography, and Surviving the cold

Glossy frozen business district

The DIY photography class has gone viral (at least in our family). My daughters and I are all three doing a module that will end up being at least a few months long. Right now, we’re using Karl Taylor Photography’s Masterclass series. We basically sit and watch a segment of the training and then go… Continue reading Homeschooling, Photography, and Surviving the cold

DIY Photography class continues

Still getting the hang of the new RX100 (a Sony camera that packs pro-quality components into a compact point & shoot form factor). Here’s a macro shot I took today of a plant leaf from our apartment…
