Captain America Bow Tie

For our anniversary, Laura made me a Captain America bow tie, and I proudly wore it Sunday morning. But only because I didn’t have an occasion to wear it before then. Knowing that I was interested in bow ties, Laura found a pattern on the internet, and then she found …

Olympus OM-D E-M10

A Review of the Olympus OM-D E-M10

I am always interested in a camera that will meet my needs, although sometimes figuring out what those needs are can be a challenge. Right now, I mainly shoot landscapes and an occasional people portrait or two, and my main audience is right here on Burnsland, although I do upload …

I’m calling our recent trip to Florida our “Non-Disney Disney Trip.” Sounds confusing, doesn’t it? That name comes from the fact that we were right there at Walt Disney World, but we didn’t actually go to any of the parks. For most people, the theme parks ARE Walt Disney World, …

World Cup Logo

What’s Up With the World Cup Logo?

Okay, first it is confession time. I am not much of a soccer fan. I will occasionally go to the soccer games of a friend of ours, and I enjoy those well enough, but mainly because I know one of the participants. All of these World Cup games really don’t …
