Been in need of Vitamin D, this has been a crazy Winter! Granted, not the crazy mid-West winters, it's all relative. I'm healed up, just can't hear from all the gunk from the ear infection. Finishing up some obligations before I head out on my next adventure. The last few days I've been playing with … Continue reading OMG SUN!!
The problem with getting older and being a half-ass photographer is that to keep up you have to upgrade your equipment every few years. I upgraded a few months ago to a Sony a7ii with a 28-70mm lens.

One really long day is good here, that's exactly what I did. First stop was the coffee shop/book store, something I so miss.
