May Contest Entry

As part of getting back into using Daz Studio more I decided to enter the May Freebie Challenge over on the Daz 3d Forums ( I mean the theme was pulp sci-fi/world of tomorrow, how could I not.   The pulp sci-fi idea reminded me of a site that I had seen linked a while … Continue reading »

Hint of Spring

I finished my photo book, Hint of Spring, last month and got the copy from Picaboo just before we left for Atlanta at the first of the month.

A Picture Book

I’m not sure how it happened but I somehow ended up with a Groupon account. About a month ago the daily deal was $35.00 for $100.00 of goods from Picaboo. Since I was starting to get into photography and I had a couple of pictures I liked already I decided to bite. This morning I … Continue reading »

First post

I’ve attempted to start this blog numerous times over the last several years but I’ve never really had anything to blog about on a regular basis that I didn’t have a better spot for. Now, however, I’ve been getting into photography more and more (since Michelle insists I need a hobby to replace the woodworking … Continue reading »
