It’s been more than a year since a global pandemic shut down Seattle and nearly drove me out of business. In this video, I take a moment to reflect on that journey, and how it led to some really amazing things.
I’m new to macro photography and have a ways to go. This past weekend I had some time to practice a few shots while the kids were occupied. Macro photography forces you to see things that you normally would go past.
I wanted to get my hands on more VR video and got a Lenovo Mirage for a really good deal. This is the first rough recording. In the future, I’m going to drop it in Final Cut Pro and edit.
If you can, watch it with a VR headset or Google cardboard.
I’m using the WordPress Amazon AI plug in and tapping into my AWS account to use Amazon text-to-speech, also known as Amazon Polly to generate a podcast. Let me know if the sound comes across naturally, like a real person?

A short weekend trip to Chicago to visit the city.
Took the day off to enjoy the City and to see the surrounding mountains. It’s incredible that we live in a place where we’re surrounded by such majestic scenery.
Contrast makes the world work. It brings context to a relative world. Light to darkness, love to hate, warmth to cold. Without contrast, we lose balance and take things for granted. Rhythm brings comfort but too long and it fades away to nothing.
With contrast comes change and change is hard. If you fight the change, avoid the contrast, then you’ll lose appreciation for the differences, and the impact each end of the spectrum has, for better or for worse.
Embrace the contrast.
What keeps me grounded after the election.
