Things I Like – Week 2 Photography Class

Getting back into the swing of things for school has been a difficult transition for me.  I feel overwhelmed and wonder how I did five classes at a time.  The thing is, those classes were all easy for me, because they did not challenge me to learn something new.  Instead, they built upon things I already knew.  I know that sounds funny, because I love to do photography.  However, this is the difference between self taught and an actually class that demands specific performance. I am operating my camera on manual mode more and more.  This is the requirement in …

Views and Angles – Week 1 Homework Digital Photography

School is officially in session.  The Digital Photography class has started with full force.  Each week I will post some of my shots. Week 1 brought in lessons about angles and views, as well as a beginning primer to get to know the camera.   Our weekly competition was based off of the term “Lock”.   The following are just fun pictures that I took, playing around.  I have this thing for dead flowers.  Even in death they are beautiful, fragile and ever lasting.  Nothing makes me happier than my Angel.  She is absolutely adorable.

Success is One Step At A Time

  Day 3 of 2017 and the first day back at work, after the holidays.  The day was somewhat like a firestorm as everyone has started going through all of their projects and catching up to tasks.  I have quite a few major projects to complete as well.  I know that I am not behind, but today left me with the feeling of being behind the gun. This evening, I was reminded during a team meeting about the SMART concepts of accomplishing goals.  Be specific, have the goal be measurable, be something that is achievable and realistic and time based. …

Momentum: Feeding the mind, Growing the soul

  Day 2 of the 2017 is quickly coming to an end. I have spent today in this funky kind of planning-creative hybrid mode that actually does not feel rather pleasant.  It is uncomfortable.  I feel like I have been wasting the day away or struggling too hard to get something done, but I am not sure what that something is that I am trying to do.  Is this an ADD disco or am I not listening when I should be?  Time will tell. Our values and behaviors we are working on daily are: Discipline – doing something each day …
