Broski the Dog

Broski was super excited when I went out on the back porch to hang out with him. Last April when I was visiting him we would spend many hours out there with me brushing away an enormous amount of his fur as he shed his winter coat. We would sit there and watch the forest.

So when I went out to hang with him this time at first he was very hyper. Then suddenly he calmed right down, lay on his belly, and we went back into our normal routine of watching the forest. I spend about 10 minutes with him just hanging out.

This image is an excellent example of how cool it is to have image stabilization on a camera. While this image was taken with a Sony image, I could also have used my 40 year old Leica 35mm lens and the image stabilization would have worked just fine.

The image was processed using Lightroom for the major edits. Then I used Macphun’s Noiseless CK for the noise removal. Photoshop was also used to remove an ugly blotch on the post in the background.

Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at and writing about my experiences at
