Kimberly took me up to Nebraska/Iowa to meet her family. It was my first trip up to that part of the country and I had a wonderful time. Her family is just great. Spring hadn’t arrived yet, so it was pretty brown and overcast for most of the trip. There still were a few hints of winter snow. I only pulled out my DSLR at her Dad’s farm near Sioux City. Never been on a farm before. Lots of interesting stuff. Porter the cat, who is in a lot of the shots, was more dog than feline. He followed us all around just like a farm dog.
Some photos from today’s playgroup! It was a surprisingly hot day! Read more
I have literally spent weeks trying to fix a flooded brine tank in my Kenmore water softener. It took me a while to understand how the darn thing worked, but once I figured it out, my problem and, more importantly, the fix seemed obvious. NOTE: I’m pretty sure that most water softeners work very similarly, so even if you don’t have a Kenmore, the information here should be helpful. Read more
This will only matter to a handful of folks, but SlyDogPhoto.com is now part of SeriouslyTrivial.com. Don’t worry! All of the photo posts on SlyDogPhoto are here and the domain name will still bring them up for you. Things may just look a wee bit different.
Let me know if there are any problems.
Was out driving on Marquardt Rd in Boerne, TX and saw this!
Mission Miracle K9 Rescue was doing evaluations and running playgroup last Sunday at Kirby Animal Shelter. Lots of people and dogs showed up! Here are some pics! (Note: The people looking at their phones in many of the shots are videoing the dog interactions. They aren’t looking at their FB page ;-) ) Read more
Didn’t do any serious shooting this trip. Weather kinda sucked and left my good glass at home. Shot these with my Nikon D500 and my 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6. It’s just a gut feeling, but I think my D750 has better dynamic range and is better suited for landscapes. Still, the D500 is no slouch.
My very first attempt at an animation in the style of the YouTube public accounting ones that I love. I set up a special website for them called SlightlyDumb.com. Enjoy!
Some shots near Wimberley, TX. Got engaged this weekend too! :-D Read more
