Crooked Cross

Moseying across Nebraska near its southern border, a beautiful white church caught my eye. It was a mile north of US 136 in Jefferson County, but shined like a beacon against the cloudless azure sky. As I approached the church from the south, I noticed the cross was leaning to the west. Not much, but … Continue reading Crooked Cross

New Perspective

Perspective Two people looking at the same object or scene from different angles might see two different things; a disagreement or argument may ensue because of different points of view. Just like in real life, a photographer needs to look at the subject from another person's perspective to better understand the "issue". What do you … Continue reading New Perspective

What Is It?

Five kids on a dock, looking into the water.  What do they see?  A fish, a frog, a dead fish, a log, a dead frog, a pollywog, a wet dog, part of my blog,  ground hog, bottle of grog, ( Geez, sounds like Dr. Seuss)  a toy boat, fishing tackle, seaweed or just another  lake … Continue reading What Is It?
