2016 Update

It’s been a long, snowless winter here in Northeastern PA.  As in, really no snow – not a single day that I could grab the camera and head out into a winter wonderland.  Instead we had rain and bizarre temperature fluctuations; it was 70 on Christmas Eve, and it was in the 70s again for several days at the start of March.  April dove back below freezing.

The cameras haven’t come out of their cabinet in weeks.  Months, really.  It’s sad, and I’ve missed their company, and the excuse they give me to go out and explore.  But in the meantime, I’ve kept busy with other projects.  Lots of woodworking, a good, warm indoor sport for the winter months.  I’m working to learn HTML/CSS as well.  It’s been a fascinating journey.

I’m still editing the wolf photos from my birthday, back in December.  The sheer volume of them overwhelmed me for a while; I’d go to work on them, and having 1200 waiting would be too much to handle mentally, and I’d close out Bridge and say “I’ll work on these this weekend.”  Well, I finally am, and they’ll be complete soon.

But with spring now established, some updates:

  • I’ll be returning to a regular posting schedule as soon as possible, so don’t give up on me yet.  Instead of the Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday pattern I’ve followed for the past few years, I think I’ll move to a Wednesday/Saturday schedule.  More signal, less noise, to borrow from David Hobby.
  • Kayaking season is beginning soon, and I’m raring to go.  No new boats, but I am looking at a new scientific project with them, and some new equipment to make it possible.  More on that as it starts to progress beyond the research/planning stage.
  • I’ve got a really, really cool portrait series on the horizon for this summer.  Again, more info as it starts to happen, but for now it’s under wraps.  But if all goes as planned, it will definitely be worth the wait.

And of course there’ll be more of whatever random adventures I stumble upon.  Stick around!

  1. It was so long since you last posted that I was beginning to think you might have cut off your shutter finger on your fancy new table saw. Good to see that didn’t happen.
