How can I write a critique of something that I find to be nearly perfect? The photograph is painted with nearly every color of the spectrum, from deep blue to bright yellow, with greys of the backside of the clouds to the fuzzy white of the water spray. Look at the scale that fades to the west, of t...

This is, unless I've missed my mark, a slight departure from your traditional style. It sure catches the eyes. Shadows and lighting are good, especially the filtered sunlight that is streaming through the hay loft above her head and dapples across the arms, tail, and hay. The foreground field of vie...

Next time you find this car, shoot low, and either move more towards the rear , straight on from the side, or shoot into the sun from the front -right quarter. Shoot high from the front-left quarter and down with the fill flash, or stand by the left-rear tyre and shoot a frame with wide aperture and...

The geologist in me wants to hunt down the mystery of how this landscape was created. Is it a big stratified layer of dolomite, tipped on end through the process of crustal folding, or perhaps are those fissures the result of compressive stress from some incoming tectonic plate long ago, like when t...

Hello Deviantart!

Summer is over, and I am back in the swing of college. It was a fast summer, with three college research trips, a lot of software development, a few weeks in Russia, and ten days in Armenia. So the summer went fast. We still managed to fit in a little bit of camping up north. In fact, we pulled the camper our longest distance yet, up to Houghton, Michigan, which is about 550 miles from our driveway in order to drop our oldest son off at Michigan Tech University, where he is starting his first year as a computer science major. In-between all that, I attempted to study for my comprehensive examinations. 

So, if you follow me here and actually read these journals, perhaps you might forgive me for the lack of updates since June. I haven’t been slacking – just very busy. I have tried to fit some fursuiting in as well, but the schedule even made that difficult, so I have less photos to share with you than normal. However,  the few I have, are really, really good, I think: One of the newest things I tried was fursuiting within the country of Armenia, amongst a hundred Armenians and Russians. The response was amazing, and if I wasn’t afraid of AIR FRANCE LOSING MY BAG AGAIN, I wouldn’t hesitate to try it again. The people of Armenia have been terrific.

So sit tight, and I will attempt to get some of these wonderful photographs from summer uploaded, along with the back story of how they came to be. I hope your autumn is enjoyable, and please wish me luck on these comprehensive examinations, because I really need to pass them in order to continue my research!
