I took a drive down to Lake Placid today (the Adirondack Park is South from here) and hit some of my favorite photo haunts along the way. I started under clouds, went through snow flurries, back to cloudy, on to sunny, back to cloudy, to fairly heavy snow and back to clouds by the time I got home. Typical NNY weather. I shot 157 photos along the way including a series of the rapidly changing sky over Barnum Pond. I think this is the best one of those. I haven't entirely made up my mind but it is tentatively number one so it gets posted.
If I'm to be pigeon-holed as anything I'd have to say "I'm a photographer". I didn't make my living that way (retired from a civil service job in the Dept. of Labor) but photography is the thing I have done the longest (56 years and counting) and most passionately. My degree is in fine art ceramics and I continue to have an interest in art and crafts. On a political scale I'm in the same neighborhood with Mahatma Gandhi according to politicalcompass.org but mostly politics annoy me. It seems to be about pushing your views on others. I wish we could find a way to live without politics. I am a student of religion but not a church-goer. I like being out in nature either hiking or in my canoe.
