Everyone keeps saying that photography on Instagram is dead and that videos made using Reels within IG is the only way to get noticed. I’m testing this theory by posting an original photo and a slightly modified version of the same photo as a reel just to see what happens.
Did I mention that yesterday at C2E2, I met Michael Rooker, the actor from The Guardians of the Galaxy, The Walking Dead, The Belko Experiment, Cliffhanger, and Mallrats, among sooo much more.
Yup, we finished the costume. He looked great. And he and I had fun. Tons of it.
It’s so effing hot in Arizona. Gorgeous, but hot.
Nathan’s school had a Fun Run today. Basically you could run a lap around a park or a full mile which was four laps. Nathan opted for one. We’ll work on that.
A longtime resort fixture in the next town north, Pheasant Run, of us caught on fire today. Nobody knows the cause but it was pretty huge.
Spend this Friday the 13th with someone special.
On Saturday, April 30, I got catfished over on my @yonduonterra Instagram account. A guy I thought I knew asked for help with something and, in the process of helping him avoid a scam, I fell victim to one.
I really need to break out my old Sony Alpha D-SLR and try out some of these tricks. This guy (CrimsonViper1138) has some really simple ideas that look fantastic.
Our second day in Seattle, and last full day of our vacation, we spent at MoPOP and just generally wandering Seattle.
This was our first of two true days of all Seattle and nothing but Seattle. Total tourist stuff. Seattle Aquarium, the Great Wheel, harbor and locks boat tour, Chihuly Gardens and Museum, and the Space Needle.
Day 3 from the Emerald City, yo! Actually, this was our driving trip outside Seattle and down into Oregon. We’ve got Mt. Rainier, Alder Dam, Mt. St. Helens, and sites from Twilight, The Goonies, and 10 Things I Hate About You.
Some shots from day two of our Seattle family vacation at Funko HQ in Everett, the Bruce and Brandon Lee gravesites, and the Jimi Hendrix Memorial…
Some shots from our drive into the Olympic Peninsula, the Bainbridge Island > Seattle Ferry, and around Pike Place Market.
It was a good weekend. I mean, of course it was Halloween, which can improve the outlook of any say, however bleak. And we had great weather pretty much all weekend after what was pretty close to a week or two of rain.
I just thought I’d share some random photos I snapped this weekend with y’all. Just ‘cause.
It’s always interesting to see what happens when Nathan decides to play with the selfie camera on his iPad.
Happy Friday the 13th, y’all! The holiday that can happen several times a year or… never! But it’s the inconsistency that I love.
I snapped this photo in downtown Arlington Heights, IL, around this time 11 years ago. We were stopping off to buy a gift card for one of Katie’s family members when I saw a broken skateboard ditched on a sidewalk outside a store.
Man, that post-vacation crash is real, isn’t it? Brutally so. Now I know why so many of my coworkers took the final two days off this week. Recovery. So important.
I don't have nearly as many photos for you today. It was a slow, relaxing day and I tried to stay off my phone as much as possible save for driving directions.
I can’t believe we’ve already hit the final full day of our vacation. Where did the time go?? Well, enjoy these photos. I may have more tomorrow from our departure. We shall see.
Here are some photos from day 4 of our trip. Enjoy!
I'm really not sure what to title this post. I chose “LA01/03” because it’s my first generic post about days 1 and 3 of our trip to the Los Angeles area (Disney was day 2).
I’m gonna make this simple and just post some photos from our trip to Disneyland today. Sound good?
Do you remember that post about early morning walks and sunrises? Sometimes, even when it's dreary, it's still beautiful...
I got a pop-up on my phone about an hour ago of a like on an Instagram photo I took from a name I didn't recognize. About 15 minutes ago, I received another notification of a comment on a photo from another name I didn't recognize. Both were attached to the same image in my account.
Early morning walks are the best. Few people. Little to no traffic. No construction sounds. And views like this.
For the last several weeks, I’ve been making it a point to go out nearly daily for walks or bike rides.
There was a time when we could get dozens of photos of Nathan in a single session. Then he started moving and didn’t stop. Or, if he does stop, he doesn’t give us a photo friendly face.
Has anyone else noticed that you can no longer actually take photos within the Instagram app anymore?
As I’ve got nothing much else worthwhile to say right now, I’m just going to take a moment to point out that I have surpassed the 5,000 post mark on Instagram! WOO!!
...Junction, what's your function?
Hooking up phrases and clauses that balance, like.
Okay, sorry, no more Schoolhouse Rock. Though the temptation be mighty! This is about the great Conjunction in the sky... the alignment of Jupiter, Saturn, and Earth that happens every 400ish years and is theorized by Johannes Kepler as being the celestial event that guided the wisemen to Jesus' birth manger in Bethlehem.
I’m really struggling right now to come up with a photography idea for 2021. I don’t want to do more macro cassette covers. I’m not sure I want to do regular macro photos. I failed miserably when I tried to do short stories based on a photo.
