I don’t run a lot of road races, but I like to run a half marathon each year. For me the half marathon is the perfect distance on the road. It really hits the sweet spot. Just the right amount of challenge no matter how you are approaching it. Apparently Skunk Cabbage Classic by the Finger Lakes Running Club has become my annual tradition. It is not a particularly easy course and… Read More

Herring Gulls are large but not the biggest of gulls. They are still impressive birds. Large white bodies. Black wing tips. Bright colored beaks, often with a spot of color on them. Herring Gulls seem to be less afraid than other birds. The Herring Gull will get close to you and allow you to get close to them. It is fun to see these birds interact with their natural environment. This Herring… Read More

One of my favorite things about running is that there is really just about endless variety and options available if you are open to it. I love to do new things. There are just so many aspects of running that one can tweak or change to shake things up differently. Add in more joy when things are getting a little stale by doing something different.   Ran first 12 hour timed event As… Read More

I have been working towards photographing the 200 waterfalls in this book that I have. Today I was able to make it to a few more. I went to the village of Honeoye Falls in the Finger Lakes region of New York. The first subject I wanted to photograph there was the waterfall, Honeoye Falls. I wanted to share a before and after photo series here. The image straight out of the… Read More

Over the course of 2021 I did something I have never done before. I took at least one photo every single day. Often many, many more than one photo. Then I took one of the photos I just created on that day and I shared it here on my blog. 2021 One photo a day project: One reason I wanted to do this is there are many times where I feel stuck,… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 365. Well We did it. 1 photo a day for 365 days. That was quite an experience. I was hoping that this Gerbera Daisy would be in full bloom for the final photo of this project. And while it wasn’t quite in full bloom I was able to create some interesting photos. The petals had opened up farther than they were previously. I was able to… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 364. The other day I shared a photo of a Gerbera Daisy I was growing. The flower blossom was jus tin the beginning phases of blooming. Today I have an update to that photo as the flower continues to develop. The flower petals are starting to open up. It is possible to look in and see the yellow center of the flower now. Maybe by tomorrow… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 363. Pet portraits are always fun. They can be very interesting. And challenging. Sometimes results may vary. The outcome is often completely reliant on the pets. This is especially the case when there has been no training and no food inducements involved. Today I set up my lights and tried to convince one of my cats, any of my cats to approach me so I could… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 362. So, I have planned out most of the races I want to run for the 2022 season. I have them all on a calendar. Now just to register for each race as registration opens up. I am already registered for one race in March. Today I just registered for one race that isn’t until June, but I figured I might as well register for it… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 361. As fall and winter progressed her in upstate, New York I decided to move some of my potted perennial flowers indoor to try to preserve them for next spring. The hope was to at very least preserve the plants in a dormant state over the cold months. Then assuming they would still be alive, put them back outside in the spring for them to return… Read More
