I grew up in Florida and lived most of my adult life in New Orleans.That means that my life can be measured in hurricanes.Growing up, we never had to evacuate.Since we were in Palm Beach, we hosted about twenty family members for Hurricane Andrew. I was a college junior the year Hurricane Katrina hit and I sheltered with 15 friends in the attic of another student's family home in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.We watched as our city, our home, and our life as we knew it all... continue reading

Fresh fruit smoothies every day. Etc. I saw Key Lime Pie on every dessert menu, though I did not eat any while I was down there. Perhaps on my next trip south, I may try some. Back home in Maryland, I saw this particular... continue reading
Before leaving on our spring break vacation to Florida, on kind of a whim after some of the Micro 4/3 banter on the Dreamstime blog, I bought myself a fisheye lens to bring along.Doesn't every photographer have a secret wish to use a fisheye lens at somepoint?There is something so exotic about that superwide effect.For most situations its not a very practical lens to use but for those special occasions it provides the perfect effect.Especially with interiors or when you need to get really... continue reading
