Until this point I had not written a post in this the new year of 2016. There are a lot of reasons or excuses I could make about why I haven’t shared anything yet this year. However, the most important reason that I haven’t shared anything yet this year is because I have been thinking about you my audience and I want anything I write to be good. want it to be good. I don’t want to write something and share it just to do it. I want it to be something that is worth reading and looking at. I want this page to be interesting and I do not want it to be a waste of time for people.

So what I really want to do with this first post is share with you what I have been doing when I am not sharing information, stories or photographs here. As I mentioned above I have been thinking a lot about all of you. Now that might sound a little creepy and to be perfectly honest it felt a little creepy just to type it. The reason why I have been thinking about you is that you are the reason I do this.

I write and create photographs for you. I share them with you because I hope to bring something into the world that you can enjoy in some way. I want what I do to provide some little thing that you can take from it; a smile, a moment of happiness, some new information, or some new artwork.

For me to do this I have to do what I do well. So I have been spending a lot of time working on getting better at what I do so that you can have a better experience when you visit my site. Sometimes it is hard to balance all the new influx of information I am trying to download to my brain with creating some output for you. And like I said before I don’t want to put out anything that I do not feel is my best work, so I wanted to wait until I felt that I was at a good place to share something. And here I am sharing it now.

A few of the takeaways I have learned: I have learned to share more about myself, share more about what I am doing, and send out what I am sharing in ways that will better enable you to find it and have an opportunity to see it. I have been trying to grow in the way I approach what I do in both my art and business and that is all so that I can better serve you.

I have been trying to learn how to better engage my audience in a way that you will enjoy. So if you have any comments, tips, or feedback on what I can do better please feel free to share it with me. That is how I get better at what I do.

Brynn at the Dog Park

I wanted to share a little bit from our experiences on our #OptOutside not #BlackFriday day after Thanksgiving.

My wife and I took one of our dogs, Brynn, up to Ithaca for a hike and a visit to the wonderful dog park they have there.

This is a series of photos of Brynn trying to chase down a ball someone threw at the dog park.

She always puts in full effort but she does not always successfully catch the ball. Check it out.

Brynn puts forth maximum effort on every attempt to catch the ball but on this one she just missed the ball and wiped out when trying to turn back to grab it. So sometimes Brynn has crash landings, but it never deters her. She gets right back up and runs full out again the next time.
