I would like to thank the person who created this award: Okoto enigma. You are an amazing and an inspiring blogger. This is really a great idea to introduce this award. It’s fun and helpful too!
This is my third nomination for this award. Thank you so much My Friend Deepika for the nomination. She is a a fantastic blogger! Her comments and posts are thoughtful and honest. My favorite thing about her blog is how many topics she can cover. Please visit her site you will love the inspirational and thought inspiring stories.
What the Award is about and why you should do this:
There are a lot of amazing blogs out there that haven’t been discovered, yet. And, most of these blogs deserve recognition. For that reason, I decided to create my own award; and nominate people who can also nominate others; and so on. This is one of the best ways to create a friendly community and build a link between bloggers in the blogosphere; as everyone gets nominated and they too can spread the fun by nominating more people for the award. I decided to call the award “Mystery Blogger Award.” Why? Because the meaning of my name, “Enigma” is “mystery.” So basically, it’s named after me; the creator. Plus, I think it’s cool because there are so many blogs that are still a mystery to us; and when we get to know them, it’s divine! And we find friends where we least expect.
WHAT IS MYSTERY BLOGGER AWARD?
“Mystery Blogger Award” is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion.

As for Nominations, whoever reads this post is nominated!
Tonight was such a fun night. I had a great dinner with my family then went into my workshop with the idea of finally doing something with a chunk of burl wood brought back from Maine. The burl was pretty small, but had some wild patterns. Because it was small I had time to make another bowl. It’s a rewarding feeling being covered in wood shavings or as I call them man glitter. ✨
I hope everyone had an awesomely amazing day!
I love the movie Horton hears a who. The idea of a microcosm living in a subatomic world. It’s made me dream about our earth and solar system existing on something like a ball of lint.
Maybe that’s why I love macro photography. It allows me to see something in a different way then I’m used to.
If you have a camera phone get something like an ollo clip and zoom into the unseen worlds of macro.
Wow, I have started this post about 4 times. My goal was to say something clever and show my art project for tonight. I think I ran out of clever. Laziness is kicking in pretty hard. Ummmm soft bed is calling…. ok my next post will be clever. So here’s what I did tonight.
Goodnight and stay Random 👾
With the holidays approaching at blistering speed, my wife and I decided this year we’re going to send out a family holiday card, instead of the usual nothing we send out. We always want to send cards, sometimes we even buy them but I usually forget to mail them.
But this year will be different! For the last week we’ve been planning to hike up to an overlook called the King and Queen seat. We even put thought into our outfits, the backgrounds, the “look” and then a few days before the shoot, Mother Nature flips us the bird. What was supposed to be 60 degrees (f) is now going to be 40 degrees and windy. Argh!
We had a plan B! The thought was to wake up and go to an arboretum and set up there. However we slept in and weren’t ready to walk out the door until it was noon. Now we’re all hungry. So instead of driving for an hour, doing the shoot and then getting lunch, we’re eating nasty Burger King and heading to a local park so my son can still attend his soccer awards.
At this point I know we should just cancel. Too many things have changed and the likelihood of finding a place with a pretty background, no wind, good lighting and and and… will be hard to find. If this adventure was with a paying client, I would of suggested we postpone, but you’re with your family, you’re super dad, you helped an old lady across the street, surely Karma will be smiling down on you. Wrong!
We get to the spot I think will be nice. Not too much wind. I find a good angle and realized my tripod isn’t in my car but at my office. (face palm) But wait! I have my small Jobie tripod. Oh wait the part that connects camera to tripod is on top of the washer because you put it in your pocket. (double face palm)
Pissed at myself, I reluctantly look for a stump to place my camera on and press the 10 second delay (my cordless trigger is dead) just to run back and try to look as calmly as can be. As you probably guessed by the lack of pictures from the family, that didn’t go well. In the back of my head I hear a mantra that I’ve lived my entire life by. (PPPPPP). Proper Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance.
Opportunity can come from failure. So we spend a bit of time just walking through the state park. We didn’t find another location that would allow us to get the shots we were after, but it was nice to spend time with the family. Having the sun on my face, feeling the wind and smelling the water was a good trade off for a photography session gone wrong.
Maybe karma knew all along that I just needed a recharge. At the end of the day we still got the project completed. We used pictures from this last year of adventuring. So all is well that ends well. Here are some of the pics I snapped from yesterday.

Christmas is my favorite time of year. The lights, the sounds, the smells, the season seems to be all around us. From the Peppermint Mochas in every coffee shop to the twinkling lights in our neighborhoods, it is a time to rejoice and reflect on not only the passing of the current year, but the hope for the year yet to come. It’s a time for families to come together and celebrate.
It’s also the time of year that is easiest to forget why we celebrate Christmas. In between stressing over finding the perfect Christmas gift for our loved ones and decking the halls just right, we often forget that Christmas is also about families, being thankful for what we have and finding ways to spread the love of Christ to others. We are pulled in a million different directions all year-long. And if your family is anything like ours, we tend to be connected to electronics more than we connect to each other. It can be hard to pull the kids away from their phones and computers to spend time together as a family.
A couple of years ago we started a new family tradition, “25 Days of Christmas.” Starting December 1st, we have one activity a day to do as a family. It doesn’t have to be something big, but it has to be something that brings us together. Even something as simple as enjoying a cup of hot chocolate around the tree or visiting the community Train Garden, it’s a chance for us to reconnect as a family and to capture a little more of the holiday spirit. The kids enjoy having a new task to do every night and we have started a tradition that I hope they can pass on to their kids.
NOW YOUR TURN : )
See how many you can do and I challenge you to come up with some of your own.
Rules are made to keep us safe, but you have to know when not to follow them. If you always follow them you will never know the secret of what’s on the other side! In my life, the sweetest fruits have always been on the thinnest, most rule guarded branches. There have been times when I have been detained because stopping on the side of the road to photograph a bridge draws attention from the authorities; but so will scaling a building to capture an amazing sunset over the city.
Yesterday we went to a National Park that had so many rules on where you could go. I’m sure they are thinking about safety for the masses, but I’m not a mass. I am a person, a person who wants to show what’s on the other side of where you should be.
As a photographer, the best shots are always, without a doubt, in the places that are hard to reach or uncomfortable to get to. It’s like nature demands a test to get it’s treasure. Sometimes it’s a long walk in bramble bushes, boggy moors, bug infested swamps or smooth as silk rocks with a long drop down. Other times it may be a small ledge that holds the perfect shot if only you can repress your fear of heights to capture the sunset you’ve been after.
While I’m not suggesting we should be careless in our adventures, we only have one life and body. I am suggesting that sometimes you should take a chance and break the rules, color outside the lines, hop the guardrail to get that shot. You might be surprised at what you discover both in your art and within yourself.
Here are some of the photographs from yesterday. I will be uploading a montage video to my youtube channel. If you haven’t yet subscribed to my youtube channel please check it out and if you like short art videos, please consider subscribing CLICK HERE to visit my channel.
