My Favorite Cup

We all have them, that thing that is just right. It fits. It makes us feel good and fills us with joy. This is the cup that does those things for me. There is a story behind the cup but that is for a different time and space. Right now I will enjoy some hot tea with locally produced honey and rest in this moment my favorite cup.

A Study In B&W

I love black and white photography. Something about the color being removed that makes the character of the structure, subject and person come through.I follow a few sites the have wonderful B&W photos. Almost all the sites take the shot in color and convert it to B&W. Since most of my stuff I take with point & shots I usually take the shots in the cameras on-board B&W mode. My Canon Powershot’s (SX10is, S3is and SX260HD) do a really good job of shooting in B&W. I do not shot in RAW since my Canon only shot jpg but maybe the magic is the processing of pictures from color to B&W in RAW. None the less I tries a conversation today and want to see if anyone can tell which I in B&W and which I converted from color to B&W.

2013 In Review by WordPress

I am a pretty clueless guy so I did not know really how many photos I uploaded and shared, nor how many visitors and views I had. I checked to see what was working and to challenge myself on the things that were not. After viewing my annual report I am amazed that so many people dropped by my place and commented on my stuff. It humbles me I am very thankful for you all.

I want to Thank WordPress, and their dedication to bloggers of all shapes, sizes and flavors, for the vehicle with which I have shared a sliver of my world with quite a few folks. The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared this 2013 annual report for my blog. Thanks again and here is to a wonder-filled 2014!

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 8,400 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
