I just love this time of year. There are more good days than bad.  Blossoms are budding and things that lay dormant are emerging from the ground.  I got a head start on tomatoes this year by buying patio size.  In an old whisky barrel I planted some corn seeds.  The deck is refinished and a new 5 burner grill is in place.  I’m reading to put in some heavy relaxing.

April 23, 2016…From this date forward,  this site will only be about photography and my vision of the life around me.  The political world will have to carry on without me.  I spent just too much time railing about things which I could not control.  From now it  will be a mixture of video and still photography with each item telling a story.  There will be links to My Online Store  where if you like you may buy what you like and bring them into your homes or places of work.

As I was thinking about how we dodged a major blizzard today I found this shot from 2008 which reprocessed using the tone curve and some cropping.   These small iris are among my favorites and they are very prolific in Maine. We have had a very easy winter so far and each day brings us closer to Spring.

appleSo another year has gone by and we are a few days into 2016.  A few words about what was.  I am a little wary about what I should and shouldn’t say.  Politics is always such a touchy area and I have picked up a lot of new people who follow my page on Facebook and I don’t want to offend anyone.  So I will let that area slide.  Lets just say that politically 2016 promises to be a very interesting year. 

One of the major things I did in 2015 was to become an Uber Driver.  It has been very interesting and I have gained a lot of freedom.   I have been able to do is shoot a lot of pictures around Portland and came up with a new video.   The reason is that I set my own hours.  I have driven a lot of interesting people and I can make extra money.  In 2016 I decided not to set any New Years Resolutions.  There are some things I would like to do in the photography field.  Primarily it involves getting more proficient in portrait photography, timelapse and street video.  I wish everyone a Happy and healthy New Year.
