The Roving Photographer


Some thoughts on tablet computing

I’ve been fascinated by tablet computers since they first started coming out, by which I mean back in the days when Palm Pilots were the closest we had. When Dell came out with their Axim Pocket-PC line, I ended up with three versions (the oldest of which is still kicking around as a sort of functional paperweight). […]

Interesting Links

It’s one of those weeks where I’ve sat down at the computer pretty much every day, ready to write, but nothing good has come.  It happens.  Writer’s block, outside distractions, other projects…or all of the above. So instead, here’s some interesting links I’ve come across in the past couple of weeks, starting with: Thomas Czarnecki’s […]

Lost my mind

Today is Parade Day in Scranton. If you don’t know what that means – and honestly, if you’re not from the greater Northeastern PA area, why would you? – it’s the most sacred and holy day of the year, when the city of Scranton swells with an influx of revelers all here for the annual […]

Pecha Kucha Night Scranton

Pecha Kucha Night Scranton was a HUGE success and a heck of a lot of fun!  My presentation, complete with narrative, is posted on my professional site – click the image above to jump over there and take a look.

Pecha Kucha Night Scranton

Some shameless self-promotion – I’ll be presenting at Pecha Kucha Scranton on Saturday, January 28th. If you haven’t heard of Pecha Kucha before (and I certainly hadn’t), it’s a series of presentations, each exactly six minutes & forty seconds in length and composed of 20 slides. Think TED, but rapid-fire. The Scranton event will include […]

September Update

Not much personal photography the past few weeks, due to a mix of work and play.  Well, work and work is more like it…business work and at-home work.  In the wake of August’s Ikea run, Mandy and I decided to refinish some of our existing furniture, which as resulted in minor power tool purchases and […]

Queen Bee

Overlooking the fact that this is a terrible photograph, it’s still something I wanted to share, for it’s naturalistic importance.  This is from the bee hut at the Harford Fair, where a hive is on display in a plexiglass enclosure to show the whole social aspect that most of us never get to see.  It’s fascinating to […]

I’m on a horse!

Yep, that’s me, on a horse.  Second time in almost 26 years, which is rather sad for a kid who grew up watching John Wayne movies.  At any rate, this was last Saturday night and I’m just now able to walk normally again.  (If you’ve ever ridden a horse, you know what this means.) Which […]

A Day Late and a Dollar Short

Missed yesterday’s post, so I’m trying to make up for it today, with this lame ramble.  Sad truth is that I’m in the midst of a creative block these past couple of weeks.  There’s been far too little camera time, and a decided lack of motivation.  The blame falls on a mix of elements: too […]

Wyoming Valley Airport Fly-in

In the past decade, the wonderful tradition of airport fly-ins has become almost mythological, fading out of the world.  It’s a shame, one that saddens me personally, because I have such fond memories of attending fly-ins as a child, at the little airport I grew up around in Vermont.  From the time I could talk, […]
