Black Water Dragon

According to Chinese astrology, 2012 is the year of the Black Water Dragon. Supposedly the black water dragon symbolizes big changes. So far this year, for me, that seems to be the case. Be that as it may, my personal water dragon is a soap dispenser on the kitchen sink.

Roses while I reboot

I’m currently on day 5 of a 15 day “green” juice “Reboot” –that means I’m only consuming raw fruit and veggie concoctions made in our Hurom juicer or, occasionally, blended in our Vita-Mix blender. Why? Because I’m crazy, and I like a challenge. My goal is to shed 25 lbs and get my body back into “fighting” shape. So far so good, but I am having a hard time motivating myself to get out and shoot. I’m hoping that will change in the next few days. In the meantime, here’s one of the first shots I took with my 70-300mm mounted on the 5D Mark III.
