Ellicott City is full of angles. I liked this one because it was right out the back door of an office on Main Street we used to have. It’s one of the few angles you can get this shot without wires in the way. That town is full of angles that I love.

I’m finding it’s good to look at life from different angles. I think it’s helping me prioritize better. I know it’s helped me this week. And better decisions seem to be leading to a better life. Who would have thunk it?

I’ve started working on photographing with different angles more than in the past and I like it. Especially low angles but for this questionable mainspring in my back, I have to choose carefully where and when. I’ve started to take my small flexible/bendable tripod with me. It works well with that older digital that is still refusing to give up the ghost.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • You are capable of doing beautiful work even without the optimal tools.
  • Yes, I heard and felt that earthquake last night. I don’t know how people live on the west coast.
  • I’m making better progress this week but I still need to step it up.
  • Take the time to have a meal with each of your children individually every so often. It’s a wonderful way to strengthen the bond.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
