Dusting Off The Blog
Hello! If you’re reading this, and I assume that you are, you’re probably wondering what this is. This is my newly resurrected blog, which has been gathering dust for the past two years. Two blog years equates to 273 normal years, or 5 minutes at the dentist. Approximately. Regardless, it’s been a long time.
Things that have happened since the last post on this blog:
- Bloglines was sold.
- Charlie Sheen’s meltdown happened.
- Bloglines was sold again.
- Yahoo continues its downward spiral and, continuing a 12 year trend, has still done nothing with Yahoo Groups.
- LMFAO’s ‘I’m sexy and I know it’ happened, which may or may not make up for the above items.
A new focus of the blog will be on photography. I’ve always enjoyed taking pictures whenever I’ve travelled, but I was not at all serious about it. For our honeymoon last year, I purchased a new camera, a Panasonic GH2, and since have started to think about photography more. I’m really just starting to learn about photography, and the plan is to post more of my photos here. Lucky you, you get to watch me try to improve my photography skills.
Photo – Moonlit Leopard in Botswana
We went on safari last year and it was an amazing experience. We saw all of the ‘Big 5’, Elephants, Lions, Leopards, Rhinos, and Cape Buffalo, along with many other animals. A big part of what I’m trying to learn with photography is how to process a photo after I’ve taken it. The original of this photo was not very good; the colors were washed out, the leopard wasn’t lit well, there were a few tree branches in the way. Hopefully I’ve improved it.
A note on photos: To grab full-sized versions of the photos I post, just click on the photo and you’ll be taken to my Smugmug site. It would make me happy if you would use the photos on your blog, Facebook, or whatever, for fun and the like, just please link back to this blog if you do so. For commercial use, please contact me.
