Michigan Protest Photos – Beautiful, Caring People!

It was so awesome to be amongst the thousands of protesters in Lansing today. I have to say with all sincerity, liberals and progressives are the kind people in our country. I’m not saying there aren’t any kind Republicans…misguided as they may be, but whenever I get a chance to hang with fellow democrats and independents at these sort of events, I’m always blown away at how polite and nice people are. They are genuinely concerned for their fellow humans and I didn’t experience a single rude person.  Whatever the case, progressives and liberals are great people. Here are a couple of photos from the event, if I get ambitious later, after work, I’ll put up a clip or two. Peace, Love and Understanding…

photo of the day

I absolutely love barberry bushes, I’ve posted another photo of this same one before. I just read that it has been used for medicinal purposes for 2500 years. I wish we had more sunlight on our property, we have thousands of trees all around us so shade is about all we have, with a few exceptions. This one was at our old house, where we had plenty of sun. I have this photo linked to the high resolution version, this plant is a work of art and is really beautiful close up. Download it (right-click and save) or click on it and zoom in, it’s amazing. At least to me, but I told you already…I absolutely love them.

Happy New Year And Happy One Year Anniversary Of This Blog!

It’s been exactly one year since I launched this blog and started spreading my thoughts around the “internets” a little more efficiently. It’s been a lot of fun and I have enjoyed being able to put my spin on the stories of the day. I will continue to blog as much as I can in the new year, but my success as a documentary producer and director has created some bigger and higher profile opportunities for me and the amount of time I will have to blog during certain points of production may be less. Here is a photo I had to get up very early for – on a brisk fall morning here in Michigan. Notice the deer checking me out in the background. That morning of photo taking yielded me many great shots and of course when a couple of deer walk into your shot as if on cue, it’s a good day for a nature photographer.

I wish all of you, even the trolls, a peaceful, loving and prosperous New Year.
