Hometown Project

For the last handful of years, I walk around the downtown of Elkhorn, taking pictures on Christmas day. I was not born here but I consider Elkhorn to be my home town. Christmas is the only day that everything is closed and I have a good view of the city without many cars parked...

Winter Storm

Late Winter in Wisconsin can bring some intense snowstorms. This last Sunday was one of those storms. The snow started lightly and then around mid morning it started coming down hard. It wasn’t a lot of snow but enough to make the roads difficult to drive with all the ruts before the snow plows...

Winter Leaves

For what ever reason, I often enjoy hiking by myself. Finding trails and areas that are not being highly traveled. This can also be achieved by hiking in extreme weather or early or late in the day. When hiking during the winter extreme low temperatures of around 10 degrees Fahrenheit or less starts to...

Foggy Morning

This is one of my favorite images. On a warm March spring day in Southern Wisconsin. I was building a home on the shore Pleasant Lake. The fog was moving ever so slowly obscuring the lake from time to time and the geese kept teasing me, until about 9:00 am when the sun poked...

Transportation

We take for granted the ability to freely travel and move around. It wasn’t so long ago that traveling a hundred miles would take a day or two, 24 plus hours. Today we can travel the same amount of miles in a couple of hours and be completely rested. I found these buses at...

Frisco 1630

Recently I visited the Illinois Railway Museum in Union Illinois. I hadn’t been to this museum since the late 1970’s and my memory of it wasn’t very strong. Fifteen dollars is the cost of an entrance fee for an adult under 62 years, it was money well spent. Exploring the trains, parts piles, street...

Summer Fireworks

I found myself hiking some local prairie, specifically Kishwauketoe¬†Nature Conservancy in Williams Bay Wisconsin. With all the rain we have had, the wild flowers were growing extremely well. These Purple Prairie Clovers were all over the place, lining the trail. They looked like fireworks, which caught my eye. I’m sure they also catch the...

Looking Out

When summer finally finds its way to the Midwest so does the heat and humidity. When this type of weather comes, sometimes I need a break. Making an escape from the humidity and also the crazy amount of insects that savagely feed on you as you try hiking trails. One area I can always...

Peak Design Capturepro Clip Review

As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. I wrote this review of the peak design capturepro clip, a couple of years ago but since I am still asked about this clip I thought that I would update it. They no longer make the clip that I have, the new one is the...

Flickr Pro

Over the 8 or so years, I had pretty much given up on Flickr. I joined in 2009 and had a couple of accounts under various names, unfortunately I made some poor choices in naming the account so I tried combining them and lost everything, but that was my fault.  After competitors such as...
