Papercuts

Video: 28 December 2020 Slow Motion Wave Crash

Everybody around me seems to constantly be going, going, going. Looking at their phones. Talking non-stop with no pauses or thoughtful reflection. Working on and off the clock. Even sitting at the table or on the couch in the evening, television turned on the big screen and the little hand-held devices powered up… In The […]

Nature Photography: Sunset Edition

As We Close This Year 2020

Dear friends, Here we are again, at the end of another year. For some it has lasted forever and for some it was *blink* and it’s over. Personally I fall into the latter category. This year I have accomplished so much making my dreams a reality. I’ve strengthened a few friendships, and had to walk […]
