Hi! Thanks for checking out my photo-and-text “day in the life” blog! I appreciate you stopping by.
In case you’re wondering, that dog in the header image was my white boxer, Casper (good name for a white dog, don’t you think?) Sadly, he died in mid-December, 2011. What a dog he was!!! Best dog in the history of the world…and I’ve had lots of fantastic dogs. But, enough about that!
While this blog was started as a way to force myself to take more pictures to get better at this thing called photography, I’ve added a couple of things to it over time:
1. I love trivia myself, so I started including a bit of trivia to each post;
2. I also find history fascinating, so a snippet of history is included for each day…something that occurred on that date at some point in the past.
I hope you find these interesting and good additions. Comments are, of course, welcome! To be sure that you don’t miss out on any of this FASCINATING stuff, you can subscribe to this blog so you’ll know when something new has been posted.
A bit about me: I am married and have 3 terrific grown kids who are all married to wonderful folk! I also have 5 incredible (soon to be 6) grand kids. We have a dog (Lucy – a yellow lab.) Where is home? Wherever we happen to be!
I’ve been seriously interested in photography since about 2006. In the past, I’ve used regular 35mm film, 110 film, a twin-lens reflex camera in a 3.25″ format, a Nikon digital (4 MP) a Sony Alpha 100 DSLR, and now I use a Canon EOS 7D DSLR as well as my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to take pictures. I used to do my photo processing in Photoshop, but have recently switched to Skylum’s Luminar and Aurora products and I like them a great deal. Simple, yet capable photo processing!
I hope you enjoy my life as told through pictures and my ramblings as much as I enjoy my life. It’s been a GREAT life – I wouldn’t trade any of it (well, OK, maybe a few small things!) I’m a happy man!
If you are interested in buying some of my pictures (not why I’m doing this!), you can see selected images here: twolfgcd.redbubble.com on the RedBubble site.
‘Nuff said. On with the show!!!!
