It’s that time again. Time to list your reforms for the new year. You’re going to get healthier, thinner, smarter, more well-traveled, more compassionate, more attractive, and you’re going to increase your net worth…right? Yes, I used to criticize the annual reformers and their wishlists of proposed personal improvements composed just because the chronological odometer flips over another digit. I was way too cool for that mindless tradition.
My alternative? I just didn’t plan for any reformation…yeah, safe call, huh?
Of course, it’s easier to criticize the hopeful than to set yourself up for failure and criticism. Why do we criticize? Because we’ve all seen (and have been) people who wish for life changes but never seem to take the first step to make that happen. And even if they, we, do take the first step true reform requires long term commitment. What is the magic bullet to long term commitment? Wait for it…hell, who knows?! Continue reading
It’s that time again! What… triple-digit heat indices, astronomic electric bills, back to school vaccinations, and chiggers (parasitic larval stage of the harvest mite, for those of you not from the southeastern US)? Yes, all that and more! And…the Wilson County Fair (near Nashville, TN)!
Yeah, I know, county fairs– stifling heat, corny sideshows, shifty carnies, over-priced rides, and toxic food (funnel cake, corn-dog, or fried beer anyone?). Continue reading
Just a quick update to let everyone know what’s going on.
It’s been a busy summer and will prove to be even busier still. Upcoming are trips to Barcelona, San Francisco, and the mountains of Tennessee. In the rear view mirror this summer are NYC, Winchester, England, and New Orleans. Most were business, some were pleasure; but all have been photo ops. So I promise to have some meat for this blog in the not too distant future.
Thanks for your patience and watch for updates on twitter (@DAtterholt) and later on this blog.
Just a quick note to let you know what is going on. This promises to be a busy summer and that bodes well for photo opportunities. First of all, we have already completed a short hop to NYC (photos here…http://atterholt.com/galleries/new-york-city/). Also coming up later this summer are trips to England, and a follow up trip to Europe (possibly Italy). There will also be a brief jaunt to New Orleans in the mix. Most of the travel is for work, but I usually try to build in a day or two extra to get some photos. So watch this space for new photo galleries and blog posts over the next several months.
Why this photo? Well, because I always anchor my posts with a photo and this one just happens to relate to travel. I took it while my wife and I were on vacation in Reno. This was actually taken in Virginia City, a location with a nice quality of light. I’d like to explore this area further one day.
More to come,
