I tease the family with examples of how my (our) Frisco home is haunted with mysterious light reflections and apparitions appearing within the house. Of course, I believe none of that is real haunting. It’s just normal visible phenomena that could alternatively be explained using the same creepy format of all the “bad science” programs shown as popular entertainment on video media channels.

Bad Science is a rant for another time. Let me just say, fake science and science fiction is at an all-time high. Creating an all-time low in real science.

Back to my story…

Wife Gloria is away on a “Quilting Sewing Retreat”. It’s a type of sewing club […] Continue reading » Kenny Keyboard

What I Am…

Where I spent my “allowance” in the 1950’s.

Read a comment made by an old (youngish 66 year old) dude about his involvement with 3D printing. He said he is a retired engineer. The reason he loved 3D printing wasn’t from what he made. It was the complexity and constant challenge to learn and understand the technical process. The CAD; the item design; the CNC; the process; the hardware; the mental stimulation. It had to be complex and difficult or he wouldn’t be interested.

I realized I was reading my own mind. It isn’t about what I make at all. It is all about mastering the […] Continue reading » What I Am…

Mama and Ducklings in the Sky

Not actually in the sky, but it looks that way. We had a very heavy rain in the morning. Not a lightning and thunder, but a good hard rain.  The lake actually flooded and overflowed the banks. It was temporary and in less than an hour the lake was back to normal height. 

The day became very bright and clear and you can see the clouds that remained. I went to the edge of the lake to survey what the flooding may have done. Nothing of importance.

But mama duck brought her 5 ducklings over to introduce them to me. I assume she thought I was going […] Continue reading » Mama and Ducklings in the Sky

I looked out my window this morning and I noticed The turtle lineup on the far side of the lake. As you can see the water is very low and it exposed this concrete buttress where street storm […] Continue reading » September 18th

Through The Lens

I have a small digital camera, the Sony NEX-5 which was one of the first in that NEX series of mirrorless exchangeable lens cameras. It is no longer the latest or greatest camera body but great pictures are made by the photographer, not the hardware.

The only thing the tool (the camera) has to do is accurately capture the light for the image. The NEX-5 does that well.

Would I upgrade the body of the camera? Maybe someday, there are some user features I would like, but the real work in photography is managed by the lens and the skill of the photographer.

I have five lenses I use […] Continue reading » Through The Lens
