I have been incredibly busy of late, with more things to do each day than I have time for, it seems. Whoever said that when you are between jobs that you have more time, in my mind at least, had no idea what they were talking about: it simply isn’t true… [the] trip to DC created a ton of photographic and video work for me to do, and I barely have time to get it done… there are 170 photos in the series, plus another 50 or so from the funeral, and another 30 or so from puttering around DC for 3 days.

The biggest eyesore in the world is right here on the North Coast. You want conventions here with this staring at every visitor we have?

So are you thinking green yet? It’s April… and next week’s Earth Day… so why not? Here’s something for you to think about.
