Web Browsers and the Internet

Millions of people use the Internet every day and most don’t have any clue how it actually works. Back in the day when AOL was in its prime some people believed AOL was the Internet, and I’ve even heard people refer to the Internet as that little blue “e” icon. Now days most people probably [...]


Washington Photo Safari

On Halloween night I attended the “Cherry Blossoms in then Fall!” safari through Washington Photo Safari. It was just a bit early for colorful fall leaves on the cherry trees but David Luria made the safari worth while. David started off with a basic lesson in travel photography covering topics like shutter speed, f-stop, as [...]

“Gone Fishin’” by Adele Enersen If you haven’t seen this already, photographer Adele Enersen came up with a unique and creative way to capture a recent new addition to her family. While on maternity leave she started a new hobby creating scenes around her sleeping daughter during nap times.  Every scene is like a little story [...]


Welcome Fall!

This seems like an appropriate time to welcome fall.  Fall has begun, and what better way to welcome it than to dig through my collection and pull up a few colorful fall photos.

It’s [...]
