My New Tripod

In the spirit of what you should consider putting on your holiday gift wish list (family always asks), I thought this was a good time to put out a few blog posts about what I saw and what came home with me from PPE (Photo Plus Expo) held every October in New York City. I’ve been …

The Halfsies – The First Quarter

PreS (pre-script; not a postscript): Once I sat down to write this post, it became very long and clear to me that my idea of “first half of the year report” needed to be divided into smaller pieces (in half again) …  I have a favorite podcast that I listen to entitled At the Movies …
