The great part of yesterday? Getting to explore a little bit of Hetch Hetchy, a part of Yosemite that I have never been to before. The bad part of yesterday? Spraining my ankle on the trail. Some of the trails were super rocky!
I love the color but, I also planned on doing this photo challenge in just black and white (using the Acros film simulation). I couldn’t decide which to post so, here is both. Part of the micro.blog October Photo Challenge.

Looking for a way to “jumpstart” myself back into taking pictures regularly, I decided (last minute, as in just this morning) to participate in Micro.Blog’s October photo challenge.
This morning, it seemed that she was an hour ahead of our normal routine. As my wife and I were finishing breakfast, we noticed that our cat wasn’t in her normal place (watching us eat). After some investigation we realized that she had already made her way back upstairs for her ahead-of-schedule mid-morning nap.
Yesterday was such a beautiful day out, with the sun shining and it neither being too hot or too cold. I spent part of the morning cleaning the grill, which I ended up using for both lunch (hot dogs) and dinner (halibut and asparagus).
I caught the end of the sunset, yesterday. I would have missed it but, thankfully, a friend sent me a text telling me to “Get your camera!”.
If you have a cat, then you know perfectly well that working remotely doesn’t mean that you no longer have a supervisor looking over your shoulder while you work.
We hadn’t been here before. But we worked hard, prepared ourselves (and our dough), kept our focus… Learned and worked as a team. Formed a game plan and executed it. And all of those other clichéd sports hype sentences that you may have heard leading into and throughout today. The game plan? This King Arthur […]
The afternoon clouds and sky were enough to stop me in my (work) tracks to go outside to grab a picture (or two).
This weekend gave us a very nice break from the wind and the rain that hovered over us throughout the week. I had a few herb starts that I was able to get into our raised beds. A couple weeks ago, I planted some green onion roots (cuts from bunches that I bought at the […]
It was a little difficult to concentrate while this scene was occurring in my peripheral vision. Just one of many distractions while working from home.
I knew it… I just don’t like the project. I don’t like photographing that way. Of course I know that I can spend some more time on it, be a little more creative, perhaps even “mold” the project into something that works for me. For example, weekly themes seemed to help a little. But it […]
Throughout 2020, I worked on cleaning up and organizing my photos from time to time but didn’t make the progress that I needed to, at least not enough where I could ever envision completing it. It wasn’t until I started writing things out (in a notebook, with a pen) that I started to get some […]
Not a good start to the year, missing the focus on the chili egg puff. Thankfully just the picture was messed up and not the actual dish, which was delicious (as always). The camera was set to aperture f/2.8 from me shooting something else (a few days ago). And I was in such a hurry […]
Some more randomness, from around the house, this past week. I not only need to find a way to get out more during the week days but, I also need to get back to establishing some themes for the coming weeks to give myself a challenge. These everyday photos are pretty mundane.
