Fresh Pressed Apple Juice

We have two apple trees in our yard. The apples have come on early this year, requiring that we harvest as much as we could before a storm shakes them all onto the ground. Today, a neighbor and I chopped and juiced them (and apples from his yard) using his press. It’s fun, messy business: ...

Pixelmator 3.5 Canyon Review in Macworld

Looking for an image editor on the Mac but don’t need the full power (or cost) of Adobe Photoshop? In Macworld, I just reviewed Pixelmator 3.5 Canyon, a great $30 alternative.

Valley of Light

My wife and I spent the weekend near Leavenworth, Washington at a cozy cabin with this as the view. Although I didn’t know if there would be much of a sunset the first night, the sun shone horizontally down a nearby valley for a wonderful show. Having a glass of wine at hand didn’t hurt, ...

Sunflower Sunset

Usually when I visit my mom at the farm, I take it real easy. And I certainly did that on this week’s visit. But I also told myself I would try to do some photographing while here. One evening, my mom and I headed to a field of sunflowers in time to catch the sunset. ...

Independence Day

Happy Fourth, my friends! This year’s Independence Day seems to carry more weight, largely because it’s an election year (make sure you vote! It’s important), but also because I’ve spent the last eight months being captivated by Hamilton, the Musical and, in turn, the stories of the people who founded the United States. I’m still ...

Late-Night Affogato

Sometimes an idea gets into your head and you have to chase it down to get rid of it. And sometimes you also get ice cream as a bonus. Friends in Portland alerted me to a new Tillamook ice cream flavored with Stumptown Cold Brew Coffee. (Tillamook and Stumptown are local Oregon brands that have ...

The 9.7-inch iPad Pro Color Gamut

I was working late one night a few weeks ago and saw a tweet by Craig Hockenberry that immediately piqued my interest. The new iPad Pro 9.7-inch model had just been announced, with an intriguing new True Tone display feature that adjusts the screen’s color temperature based on the ambient light in the room. And ...
