Some Great Books on Technology

God, Technology, and the Christian Life Every year I wish I had read more books. Once i get into a book I'm good, but when i finish it takes me forever to get back into that groove of the "next" book. I tend to bounce from book to book until I find that next one.…

iPhone 13 Pro Max Macro Mode

I love macro photography. True marco 1:1 magnification (or greater) has been a long time favorite of mine for many years. The butterfly in this post was one such shot I took a while back with a Nikon 105mm Macro lens. When Apple announced the new iPhone 13 received a "close focus" lens i was…

A Fresh Update for a Post Pandemic Time

Emily Hiding Under the Chair We certainly aren't post pandemic yet, but surely someday we will be, I hope. My blog hasn't necessarily been hiding under a chair like my cat, but it hasn't been far off from that reality either. Last year, among other things, we worked hard on building a backyard pond, (Deborah's…

Thoughts on Feedly, Inoreader, and RSS Readers

I love the RSS feed and think it's one of the most powerful tools someone can use to filter and currate content on the web. It's also one of the most undervalued and underused options. Unfortunately on March 13, 2013, Google announced they were discontinuing Google Reader, stating the product had a loyal but declining…

A Photo Day at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson Airport

Delta Airlines on Arrival

Like most people in my surrounding area, I have been to this airport so many times, but most of the time it’s been rushed and hectic. I finally had a day planned to just go and do some photography in and around the airport. If you are new to this site or my photography, I…

That On Again Romance with Photography

One of the first pictures created was said to have been taken in 1838 by Louis Daguerre, which shows Boulevard du Temple, in Paris. Susan Sontag in her classic 1977 criticism On Photography said “to collect photographs is to collect the world,” and as a photographer I often ask myself, hasn’t the entire world been…

Time Expired

Time Expired beams of radiance heat shimmer rising softly a watch in the night On thoughts in baseball... there’s always tomorrow, except when there’s not. Then there’s hope for what’s to come. Rom 15.13.

A Photographer’s 10 Year Journey From DSLR to iPhone

Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, 2016 With the pending announcement and release of the iPhone 8, or the iPhone Pro, iPhone X or whatever the new flagship iPhone is going to be called, the photography industry as a whole is once again going to be forced to advance to places it perhaps never considered 10 years…
