A Child's Perspective

Click for a larger view Never let the wonder of childhood pass.  If you begin to lose it, take a few moments and get down on your knees and view the world as a child.  There is an adventure and wonder everywhere you look.  Things are new and full of wonder. Even things that most people pass by without a second glance have something wonderful and amazing to be seen.

iPhone Photography

Like many people I take pictures with my iPhone and why not, it is always with me and has a very nice camera.  Add a few apps and photos can be taken and edited all on the phone in a few moments. It is a much different mindset and experience over using a "real" camera and sometimes it is almost freeing.
