Welcome to the blog. Here you will keep up to date with what is going on with Pam and me and see pictures we enjoy from around Northern Indiana or wherever the Airstream and pickup truck takes us. Or just see what is the latest creation from our corner of the world.
Please take a moment and leave a note.
The platform that hosts this website and blog is making changes. Those changes are significant and I'm forced to move my work to another platform / website.
I won't be doing a blog and instead have returned to Facebook where I will be posting images, video, etc. (And I won't be sharing my opinions on anything because that is what got me in trouble with them.)
The new website is...
I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
Please click the link and check out the new site. It will take a while to repopulate it with the same content... in fact it will be impossible.
Maybe some of the things that needed to be "culled" will be now.
In our area are canals. These are man made waterways that funnel water to old, abandon turbines that once produced electricity.
I think in another post I mentioned that at one of our local parks they have a mill... Bonneyvill Mills. According to one of the people who work there at one time in addition to milling grain at one time they generated electricity for a good number of local residence.
With all the push for "green" energy, why not hydro? It worked once, would it not work again?
So this video is through the window of one of the abandon hydro plants. The only one I know of that still stands. The others are just foundations.
I'm not sure sometimes that we are progressing. Maybe we are regressing?
This week I took a picture with my phone. It was just to show someone this really awful fence.
They responded, "is this computer generated".
So that is where we are. People don't know if something is "real" or not. And we are just getting started down this road.
My computer generated images are on this web site and are also at
The website above is pretty progressive in terms of how it presents AI images. Take a look.
Two Amish people are riding a bicycle built for two to church. Is it brother and sister? Did a boy stop and get his girlfriend to ride with him?
It is a hazy summer's day and the corn is tall.
Life is good in Northern Indiana.
Two women stand on a cliff over looking the ocean.
Tell me their story.
How do you market images?
That isn't a rhetorical question. If you have a good answer let me know!
One of the things I tried was "dry erase boards" as message boards. Below is one effort.
I sold very few. One went to a lady who loved hers. She works and she leaves messages to the family about who is to do what, what's for supper, etc. Ideal use.
How about you? Have an application for something both beautiful and functional?
I try to ride the Pumpkinvine every day on my bicycle. This year I'm not doing so well. Last year was a little better. The year before that I was really good.
On the particular morning I shot this there was fog and the sunlight filtering through the trees made sunbeams. The light was really interesting.
I started the camera to pan to the Pumpkinvine sign hoping the sunbeams would be visible and obvious. Then I saw this blinking light and worried it would be very distracting, but the rider turned out to be a welcome addition to the shot.
The sound was removed because he (the passing rider) said "hi" and I said "hi" back and that wasn't good sound.
What do you think?
In the gallery (folder) on the website proper are 644 images and 12 videos (I think) of Amish Buggies.
That's a lot of images.
As you can see I really like photographing Amish Buggies. You might think these are "best sellers" where my images are sold. To my surprise they are not. On Adobe stock, my best seller is a waterfall in a rainforest.
But that doesn't change my "obsession" with photographing buggies.
I hope you can find your favorite. Which one might that be?
