• Single frame: Eaton’s Sugarhouse

    It was my first time visiting South Royalton, Vermont. My friend drove me around the town and we were returning from Cockadoodle Pizza Cafe in Bethel. As we rounded the corner heading back into South Royalton on Route 14, I saw Eaton’s Sugarhouse’s rustic exterior wood slats for the first time as he spoke about […]

  • Yellow-orange sky

    I’m borrowing a Fujifilm X100S camera for the week to see if I like it. I want to try Fuji film simulation recipes on it and understand if I like that process. Here’s a few photos from the sky this evening without any adjustments. I had stepped outside with my smartphone to catch the light […]

  • Single frame: The Exclusive Shot (color)

    Pulled out a file from 2015 in Capture One Pro after upgrading my license. I had edited this into a monochrome at one time. This was from one of my first road trips with photographer Michael Hutchinson down to Gaffney, South Carolina. I wrestled with the colors, balance, and cropping to finally arrive at a […]

  • Exploring the great outdoors

    I went up to Boone to hike three miles over a mountain and around it. It was supposed to be a two and a half hour drive up but I somehow made good time and arrived in two hours. My friend and I just returned from having brisket and pulled pork for lunch at Pedalin’ […]

  • Update to PHP 8.0 on Ubuntu 20.04 on Digital Ocean for WordPress

    I followed my previous tutorial until I had to use these additional commands to continue. There was a DOS installation that I chose the default/recommended answers wherever I was in doubt and I chose to keep my original configuration on one of the DOS pages. The packages below I found by using the commands in […]

  • Flowers from the garden

    It’s 77°F outside and working in that heat made it feel like 80°F. I was sweating when I finished fixing the pickets on the deck. I walked about the garden while the sun beat down on my black cap.

  • Where to put it?!

    In my high school years, my friends introduced me to the many aspects of owning an amateur radio. The first time I saw my friends the Hunters they were holding these small handheld Kenwood radios, and it interested me, but when they told me about them it just went over my head. They told me […]

  • Walking down the driveway

    Finally getting out of the house this afternoon after working on a website redesign most of the day and going out early this morning on an errand. It’s another sunny breezy cloudy day. The wind is knocking the metal pipe chimes about.

  • Spending the week outside

    My work has been slow coming in for a week or two and I’ve taken it as an opportunity to step outside and enjoy myself in the summer weather. To date, I’ve planted two Fashion Azaleas, two Trouper Azaleas, six Daylilies, three Lenten roses, five Knock Out red rose bushes, and three tubes of Gold […]

  • Single frame: Felicia Post

    It was a bright day when we stepped outside for the photo. The weather was between 40 – 50°F and five foot snow banks covered by mud were slowly melting away. I had just finished live-streaming seven sessions and workshops in the South Royalton, Vermont church. I didn’t want to miss an opportunity to photograph […]

  • Single frame: Out on a Limb

    I visited the outskirts of Clover, South Carolina with Hutch and we found many good locations to photograph. We had looked up the hill from the road as we drove past and saw Joe and Curtis, the land owners, getting out of their trucks. They were clearing a large expanse of land. Hutch saw them […]

  • Mud season

    It’s mud season in South Royalton, Vermont. I went outside to pick up two cold unsweetened reduced decaf black teas at R.B.’s Deli. It was 49F degrees with no wind chill. I like the texture contrast of the muddy snow mountains to the gray fog and heavy cloud cover.
