Over the counter

There is an epidemic that has caused 18,893 deaths last year and this epidemic is heroin, and this number does not include deaths from prescription opioid abuse. There is a war on drugs but like most wars the body count only increases. Ohio based Kroger stores have made the decision to make Naloxone an opiate blocker that is used by paramedics and first responder across the America to save lives available over the counter.  “We want families dealing with addiction to know that they can count on having the drug available in the event that they need it,” Jeff Talbot, Kroger vice president of merchandising, said in a statement. I applaud this company that decided it was time to take a stand..  7 4 13 a

Albert Einstein is proved right yet again!

 

One hundred years ago Albert Einstein hypothesized gravitational waves, ripples in space and time.  Scientists said they first detected the gravitational waves last Sept. 14. They said the waves were the product of a collision between two black holes 30 times as massive as the Sun, located 1.3 billion light years from Earth.  The scientific milestone was achieved using a pair of giant laser detectors in the United States, located in Louisiana and Washington State, capping a long quest to confirm the existence of these waves. The two laser instruments, which work in unison, are known as the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO). They are able to detect remarkably small vibrations from passing gravitational waves. This usher in a new way to explore our universe to hear the cosmos.

They heard two black holes go bump in the Night.      einstein-big-idea-merl

There are times

I have a business that involves photography, and at times I take photographs with nothing but that in mind. I see the subject and in my minds eye I see a product. The only way I am even able to be even somewhat successful at that is that I forget about that part of it. And I remember that photography is about light, and shadow, and color that simplicity is the answer. Thee are times when light and shadow and a dash of color is all I need. 245_2112 copy

While the left coast suffers through the worst  drought in fifty years  we have had an amazing amount of rain here in the Midwest so the yard as gotten out of control. so after an attempt to bring it back to manageable state, now hot and sweaty. I came inside to cool off. looking for something refreshing I came across this photo of a frozen bubble from a few years ago. It didn’t work I am still turning the thermostat down.frozenbubble3 copy

simple

wfeels  The size, power, and complexity of steam as always fascinated me. You stand near them and you feel small and lite. the workings of the machine is exposed so as to see all of it’s parts. They are from a simpler time. So a simple image

Low Light and Chance

The light was low and I had 100 speed slide film yea some of us` still use it ,    when I saw these two Native American dancers  This Pow Wow was being held in side  and as with most pow wows the use of flash was prohibited  They were waiting there turn watching the current dancers surrounded by spectators and other photographers and there was just no good composition to be had.  Their turn had come and they started into the circle, I twisted the aperture ring to f-22 that brought the shutter speed down to just over one second.   Two weeks later I saw the slide for the first time and that is what I loved and hated about film the waiting , but sometimes it’s worth it.Spirit walkers copy

Beautiful World

green shiney 2As the weather cools with the changing of the seasons some of the small things that are just to fast to even get a good look at slow down a little. Little colorful chrome blurs that dart threw the garden never landing at one place for any length of time in the warmth of summer. The chill in the air and the scarcity of fall flowers and these little jewels will even slow down enough to pose for a photograph. Nature teaches me and makes me practices patience with the reward being to experience the beauty and wonder of the small things
