WordPress (on godaddy) Breaks again

In the eternal struggle that is WordPress development, I finally updated to the most recent version of wordpress. I like this version a lot. One really cool new feature is that it has photo gallery widgets and feature images as part of wordpress itself. Very cool. The only problem is that GoDaddy doesn’t seem to […]

My New Favorite Lens Vivitar Series 1 28-90mm F2.8-3.5 Macro Lens

Every once in a while you get a new favorite thing. Today, that favorite thing is a Vivitar Series 1 28-90mm F2.8-3.5. Holy hell do I love this thing. I got it for like $15 at an antique dealer, and it’s now one of my goto lenses. You may ask? Why Lee? Why is this […]

Whoops! Hiding password protected posts.

I love WordPress but sometimes it truly hurts me when the thing you love does something to some completely nonsensical. Seriously, if you can’t display the content, why even advertise that it’s there? I use the Robo Gallery plugin to manage the display of photo galleries that I have. In this case I wanted to […]

Madison CT 19-DEC-2018

I walked around Madison today carrying only prime lenses. They’re all manual too. I’m not bragging or anything, I think I would have killed for a zoom lens by the end of the day. Zoom functionality was either provided by my feet or by swapping lenses to get wider or narrower angles. I’m using photography […]

I even suffer emotional trauma when I see people opening the gifts I gave  in front of me. Who knew that my mom wouldn’t enjoy a Bob Dylan Christmas album, or that […]

Coldest Day of The Year

Took a few photos of these hardworking roofers working on the coldest day of the year. Of the photos I took, I think my favorite is this one. I really like my camera. I’m quickly finding out that noon day light sucks to work with. Everything becomes a silhouette and it’s difficult to compenstate for […]

Living in Harmony with WordPress

I love me some WordPress. Initially, I started with a WYSIWYG editor and pure HTML because I didn’t want to spend that much time working on web development. After some tinkering I discovered Bootstrap and I thought it made web development incredibly easy. It didn’t take very long to get rolling with Bootstrap (several days […]

ISO9001 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It’s awful, but what can you do?

I’m helping Volunteer Research Laboratories LLC become ISO9001 certified, and later I will be getting Volunteer AS9100 certified. These things are probably meaningless to you, and rightfully so. They’re meaningless to some organizations that implement them. For the last four years, I’ve worked in an ISO9001 facility and had no idea what ISO9001 was. After […]
