Camera vs iPhone pictures

Recently I had a conversation about why I love my powerful handheld Cannon camera. Here are pictures from last night (from yesterday’s blogpost) and the iPhone picture I didn’t share yesterday. All of these are unfiltered, taken from the same place on my balcony but as you can see the iPhone photo was taken aboutContinue reading “Camera vs iPhone pictures”

An author in the Spotlight

Tomorrow, I’m honored to be featured in the Children’s Books Spotlight Series which shares stories of authors and illustrators. You probably enjoyed the Last full moon of the decade and I’ve shared many other moon photos in my blog over the years. I’ve learned through many readers how strong an impact the moon has onContinue reading “An author in the Spotlight”

I didn’t see the moon on the ride home from the airport, but the night was illuminated so I hoped it would come intoContinue reading “Final Full Moon of the Decade”

It’s fun to watch them respond to the story and then talk about it afterwards. I also share a slide show withContinue reading “Reflections on a School Visit”

Harvest Moon

The moon brought along a friend to this photo shoot, or maybe it’s a reflection. 😉 Either way, it gave me the idea to take this picture my book, ALIANA REACHES FOR THE MOON and MOON’s FIRST FRIENDS, by Susanna Leonard Hill. A wonderful pair to celebrate the moon.

Apollopalooza

To say I’m honored to be on this list of Thought Leaders from the Apollo 11 celebration at Wings over the Rockies is an understatement. As I said to a friend yesterday, I’m a drop in the bucket in this ocean of talent. I suppose a more appropriate analogy would have been I’m a tinyContinue reading “Apollopalooza”
