The Ramble Tamble; Up Close

When I was in college I had a cinematography class. We didn’t shoot one inch of film. Instead we spent our time shooting still photos, learning the craft of exposure, film speed, of our assignments was to shoot several photos of the same object. I of course shot pictures of my bike. Well, I […]

Ahh, Spring

Ah, Spring. From seventy degrees to forty, and back again. That is Spring on the Wasatch Front. But the schizophrenia is not limited to the mountains.
