  • The Rainbow Bridge

    July 25, 2012 at 7:51 am

    Back in May, I wrote a post called The Circle of Life. It was a reflection on birth and death and all the interesting bits in between. In that article, I spoke about taking care of my 13-year-old Siberian Husky dog, named Kika. She just passed away on Monday, so this is a tribute to […]

  • Gardening on the Cheap

    June 27, 2012 at 10:48 am

    I would like to reclaim the word cheap. To me it does not mean stingy, miserly or of poor quality. In this post-recession era I believe it now signifies resourceful, ingenious, grateful and green. I love to garden but don’t relish spending hundreds of dollars on it. I prefer splitting plants in the spring or […]

  • Holy Hydrangea!

    June 13, 2012 at 11:00 am

    I love hydrangeas! They have become synonymous with early summer for me. This blog post is an ode to this incredibly beautiful plant. There are several types of hydrangeas but my favorite is the mophead (hyrangea macrophylla) variety. Most have blooms of blue or pink. Part of what fascinates me about this plant is that, […]

This last happened in 2004 and will not happen again for another 105.5 years. Observers in North America will see the transit during the evening of June 5, 2012 from 6 p.m. […]

  • How to Photomerge

    May 9, 2012 at 11:00 am

    When I first started photographing seriously in the late 1980’s I was shooting film. I had a 35mm camera and also had a medium format, twin lens reflex Yashicamat camera. The medium format film was very attractive to me because the print quality from such a large negative was amazing, when compared to little, old […]

  • The Circle of Life

    May 2, 2012 at 11:00 am

    Recently I took a long bus ride for a two-day, whirlwind trip to Washington, D.C. with my daughter’s 5th grade class. To keep the children entertained the teachers played all three Lion King movies so I have had “The Circle of Life” song in my head ever since then. It got me to thinking about […]
