Random Non-Sequiturs & Photography

Every viewer is going to get a different thing. That’s the thing about painting, photography, cinema.

I am a photographer and information security professional who has the luxury (curse?) to travel around the world as part of my “day job”. Both the art and science of photography have been an interest of mine for over ten years, as well as the various digital post processing techniques and tools. The majority of this blog is related to photographs taken while traveling for business and while on vacations, as well as my other hobbies including motorcycling and geeky things that tickle my fancy. While I may also post things related to my profession – Information Security & Risk Management such should not be seen as my company’s opinions, nor to have their blessings.

But wait … there’s more!

If you are interested in more about my gear, tools, software, the sounds of one hand clapping in the forest and the other Random Non-Sequiturs that are my life, head on over to the requisite “About” page … fairly boring stuff, but there if you are interested, or suffering from insomnia and out of ambien or melatonin 😉

Please do leave comments on photos and posts – knowing what people like about them (or conversely hate about them for that matter) really does help me and others learn from different perspectives. I’ve learned quite a bit asking an odd (or dumb) questions on other photographer’s and coding sites, so really, don’t hesitate. You can also follow me on the various social media and photography sites shown above.

Astrophotography and the curse of clouds

NEOWISE – Chasing the Comet
Not unlike other amateur astronomers and photographers, I have been outside every night trying to capture images of Neowise (a.k.a. C/2020 F3). Unfortunately, like most I've chatted with, I've also been fighting and frustrated...

Don't burst my bubble! Due to COVID-19 I've not been able to get out much to shoot new photos, but I have a hell of a backlog. This image was captured last year while...
