This blog is dedicated to finding the fantasy in everyday objects and scenes.
I am a graduate of the New York Institute of Photography. I also spent four years as the Community (read, Assistant) Editor for a small-town daily newspaper in Iowa several years back. During this time, I won a first-place National Newspaper Association quarterly photography contest. I also won first and third place Iowa Newspaper Association photography awards. Now making my home in Missouri, I spend my nights delivering newspapers for two large newspapers. Kind of ironic, isn’t it? Life does have its twists and turns, doesn’t it?
Update: I have since retired after nine or ten deer and one black cow have mangled my car throughout the middle of the night when I made all my runs. Hard to avoid two black cows in the middle of the road in the middle of the night. Also, I was starting to get very sleepy and didn’t want to wind up like one of our carriers who fell asleep at the wheel and didn’t make it. It was getting that close.
So, now I am a part-time volunteer for the local library (10 miles away) and work in a local family history center at the LDS church (9 miles away).
Sometimes I just get out and drive around looking for different things to photograph. Once, after taking some photos of an old barn, a pickup truck cut me off as I was pulling up to a stop sign and the two guys in it got rather ugly, but all turned out well enough. You just never know.
I’ve been devoting a bit more time to my two writing blogs, as well as this one. Sometimes being retired can make one just plain tired and I get lazy.
I’m also getting more involved in doing genealogical research. I’ve actually found some thing online that I hadn’t come across before. So, that’s been fun.
So, this is more or less where I am today, December 14, 2013. Thanks for stopping by.
