New photo apps that heavily process photos get me almost every time! I have to try them out. I’ll never understand the digital magic under their hoods. Perhaps that’s the reason I feel so drawn to them?
In my previous post, Exploring the Backside of the Tracks, I talked about my finding a specific photo location near some Atlanta westside railroad tracks. In this post, I want to talk about what’s by those tracks: The Goat Farm Arts Center. What a very cool place to discover!
The area consists of several buildings built back … Continue reading

So, even though it still requires a lot more work, I’m declaring the job done. I need closure, and closure has … Continue reading
Those who know me know that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday by far. This past Thanksgiving1 was an extended holiday.
Steve spent about a week out on the west coast and cooked his best Thanksgiving meal ever! Delicious. In our typical fashion of trying to minimize waist2, we did’t cook a turkey—just a ham. He cooked on … Continue reading
