Thankful for Art and for Looking at the World with an Artistic Eye

How to Edit Mobile Photos Quickly & Without Expensive Software

As you know, I have been doing the 365 project. And although I stopped posting the photos here without any fanfare, I have done really well capturing every day this year but one with a photo that is representative of the day (the one day I missed featured a whoops).

#AgNerd Recommends: Mobile Monopod for Vlogging

We were focused on buying a variety of things they and family members need but have trouble finding or affording in Turkey.

Getting a Good Farm Photo Shoot (Tips for Farmers & Photographers)
