I’m the kind of person that has to get outside and go for a little adventure at least every couple of days or I start to go a little crazy. It doesn’t have to be a big thing, matter of fact it’s doing lots of little things that start at my front door: just closeContinue reading “Everyday Adventure- Putnam Park”
Normally, I like my chocolate dark and bitter (like my soul!). But, there’s something about Christmas time that changes that. Come Christmas time and the special displays in the stores I can’t seem to walk by without grabbing a bar or two of the Cadbury fruit and nut variety. They don’t last very long onceContinue reading “‘Bout That Time Of the Year”
I got to goofing around with the sunset shot I posted the other day, no real idea with where I was going with it just goofing off, and I decided I liked what I came up with.
The The Acoustic Cafe is one of just about everyone around here’s favorite places. The Acoustic serves up wonderful sandwiches, soups, and baked goods- their cinnamon rolls are The Bomb. Back in The Before Times they also had a concert or two a week. I always get a little nostalgia buzz when I show upContinue reading “The Acoustic Cafe”
In a normal year snow would have ended my days of bombing dirt roads on a road bike by now. But, it seems even the weather can’t be normal in 2020. The current forecast has a couple of 40 degree days in mid December in it. This is just strange.

As is usually the case on days like today I took a spin around town on my bike and as is also usually the case IContinue reading “Blowing Out The Sunset”
Got an idea for a new photo and decided to do a couple test shots before actually trying the real shot out. And I thought this test pic of a paraffin oil lantern in my apartment turned out good enough to share. Hope you like it.
Have I mentioned I live in farm country? Eau Claire’s at the northern end of the Driftless area, which is mostly small small towns and small (by modern Midwestern standards) farms. And lots of rolling hills. This was taken about 10 miles south of town.
This was just me playing around trying to see how slow of a shutter speed I could use and still get a sharp image. But, I thought it turned out kinda cool and worth sharing,
Brown Season can turn into Snow Season any time now. I was going to go on a bike ride today, but it turned out to be one of those damp days in the 30’s where no matter what you do you can’t stay warm and then suddenly you’re over heated, so today’s ride turned intoContinue reading “Brown Season Continues…”
