A little hiatus

A little hiatus

I started this post right before Halloween but it looks like I never finished it. ¬†So hey! I was gonna do a tiny hiatus ūüôā Hiatus is over! In quick summary of the last two months: – We moved to San Diego. .. Oh I guess that’s it. ¬†I gotta tell ya doing Christmas at …

My Precious

My Precious

Working on photography processing tonight and I look up to see this photo hanging on my wall .. I can honestly say this is one of the top 3 pictures I’ve ever taken. ¬†I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of looking at it.

Not my normal Saturday

Not my normal Saturday

So I spent most of yesterday staring at a computer screen which is definitely not how I prefer to spend my weekends. When you work in technology there’s an understanding that some portion of your nights and weekends you’ll spend ‘practicing’ for your day job. ¬†If you’re in a startup there’s the added fun that …

Where in the world is Mike?

Where in the world is Mike?

Well I’m in San Francisco, obviously. ¬† Or perhaps not so obviously? ¬†We travel around a lot so it can be hard to say where we are on any given Sunday. ¬†Today though? ¬†I’m sitting at my desk, Cat firmly ensconced in my lap with a stunning view of our high rise neighborhood behind my …

Why do I take so many damn pictures?

Why do I take so many damn pictures?

Good question! Glad no one asked.¬†It’s definitely not to make money. It’s easy to assume that no one can make money as a photographer anymore with the proliferation of tools that lower the bar of entry, but photography has almost never been about the technical prowess of the photographer. ¬†Instead it’s about telling a story …

I really need a shower. And a nap.

After a 3 day weekend camping it’s looking like a quiet week this week. I’m looking forward to having tons of time to work on my backlog of photos to process and develop as I’m already 2 trips behind and if I’m not careful it’s going to get even more out of hand at the …

It’s been (almost) exactly 2 years…

Since I’ve posted anything here. I could have held off another 12 days and made it exact but that seems overly arbitrary and a bit OCD. ¬† ¬†I’ve fallen into the easy trap of using FB to power my little life stream, but the format there for deep thoughts just isn’t there. ¬†Plus old content …
