Macro Beginnings

Due to time constraints today, I really don’t have the time to sit down and read about my new macro lens. But, I just HAD to get my hands on that baby and see what I could do just “winging it”. Keep in mind, these are “rough” and have only one point of focus, which … Continue reading Macro Beginnings

Digging Out

I need to make a correction in what I stated in my last post. There was ONLY a state of emergency in Erie County, NOT in the entire state of New York. My apologies for the misinformation.

Snow Storm Part 2

Granted the first set of photos were nothing to write home about. I did that deliberately to show you how fast and how furious this storm got. What should have taken 20 minutes to get home, took us well over one hour. Now you will see some drama. I guarantee. When we arrived home, a … Continue reading Snow Storm Part 2


Cuddles is home, groggy as all heck. The actual procedure went so quick I was taken by surprise. Tartar on those back teeth he won’t let me get, and one tooth that needed to be pulled. OUCH! And my thank you! Well! Let me tell you! Boy did I EVER get a “gift”. As Cuddles … Continue reading HE’S HOME!
