I’ve been doing all of my work on a 13″ MacBook which eventually slogged into near-retirement; when I updated and upgraded, I did it in a major way. I have gifted myself with a 27″ iMac.
Wonderful machine! I am truly blessed to have it.
However, the images that looked pretty darn good to me on my little laptop screen make me cringe when I open them on this big beautiful blessed screen. It’s humbling and I am not so quick to throw pictures up on my blog anymore. (Maybe I’ll get over that.)
Since I feel the need to include an image or two in every post, for your amusement, here are two I did as a study in depth of field. I won’t bore you with every shot from f/18 to f/4 … just the beginning and the end. These Willow Tree figurines (Father & Son and Mother & Baby) represent my life…my family’s life…30 years ago.
And if you’ve followed my blog for any length of time, you might have figured out that the TRUE BLESSINGS in my life are my family, beginning with my two sons.

I think it might be interesting to use this as a metaphor for the people in our lives. Sometimes strongly with us. Sometimes fading into the background, but still there.
