I suppose we become spoiled bit by bit, without really being aware of the process. When we repeatedly experience something marvelous, and are even acutely aware of how extraordinary the experiences are, we still seem somewhat unaware that our expectations for this new, higher level of perfection are also growing. I recently had this expectation […]
Have you ever had a company you really wanted to succeed? They just provided a product that was so needed, or at such a value, or both? Webpass is one such company, and I had never heard of them before yesterday! When we first moved into our new apartment in San Francisco, I connected the […]
Following Steve’s example, here are a few photos in a bonus round of the 7 day photo challenge.
When I work out, admittedly only about 4 times a year, I attempt to view my photos on the AppleTV. The new Photos app now lets me share all of the photos in my Lightroom catalog! Today was the first time I tried it, and it worked. The TV just pulled random photos from a […]
The road dead ends at Milford Sound, New Zealand, which opens out to the Tasman Sea. The rough mountains drop straight down into the depths of Milford Sound. As a result, our small ship could go right up to the rock’s edge. Everything about this place feeds the soul.
O dear! Today was so busy, I almost forgot! I’m getting my Day 5 photo posted just before midnight! I chose something entirely different: a partial panorama in that this photo is really many photos stitched together spanning about a 180º view. The actual completed image is over 25,000 pixels wide by over 3,000 pixels […]

Every time we drove by this place it looked strikingly different. For a map of the area, see this prior post […]
They say that the best camera is the one you have with you. It had just stopped raining (an incredibly rare thing at the time) when we stopped at the old submarine (now fishing) pier at Fort Baker. The air was clear with a bit of a nip from the strong and consistent breeze from the […]
Just on the outskirts of a tiny quaint mining town on the South Island of New Zealand, protected by the mountain behind it from the brutal winter elements, sits this small house from a time gone by. The HDR brings out the rich textures in the wood slats1. The sun had disappeared behind the mountains casting […]
With heavy and relentless marketing efforts, it’s no wonder we easily get things confused. I came across a stenciled sign in San Francisco that contained only the words in the first 2 ideas presented below. The sign got me thinking about how we easily substitute something in our minds for something it is not. We actually make […]
