keeping organized for low cost

white sticker letters to label your gear


I was trying to think of a way to help me keep more organized lenses in my camera bags when I’m working.  Instead of paying the money for those Lensbling things, I found a simple set of white letters/number sticker sheets at Staples for $2.50, and put them on my lens caps.  The white letters show up perfectly against the black lens caps, and I can very easily see which lens is which when I’m going for one in my bag.

A great idea and solution for very little cost.   Organization for the win!!


Washington DC!

Korean War Memorial, Washington DC • Petzval test

(Korean War Memorial, Washington DC)

Back in March, Sara and I took a week and headed down to Washington DC.  It was the first time either of us had been to Washington, and we both felt it was high time we visited our Nation’s capital and took in some of the museum’s and memorials. Plus, it was our first experience using Airbnb, a service that lets anyone rent their home or room to travelers.

Leather camera bag/satchel, Canon 5DMkII, Petzval lens


I’ve been carting the Lomography Petzval lens with me every where I go when I bring a camera that isn’t job-related.  This lens is a finicky little piece of brass and glass, but I’m getting the hang of it.

I love this bag.  I’ve had it for a while now, and the goat leather is getting very soft to the touch.

This little bag shot was taken at Saint-Gaudens in Cornish, NH

Graced with some gorgeous weather lately, my buddy Mike and I took our scooters out for a ride.  I took this portrait of Mike during our stop at Woodmont Orchard in Hollis NH.  Taken with the Petzval lens.
