"...birds progenerate and the sky brings clouds, rain and sunshine."
Back When A couple of years back, I received a Panasonic FX-07 in an auction I won. The camera came with two others, including an Olympus SP-500 and a Kodak Z-1015. I had no intentions of using the camera--I was only interested in the other two cameras. I ended up giving it to my daughter... Continue Reading →
Catching Up Greetings! I sincerely hope that whomever is reading this blog post is well. It has been around a full year since my last post. Sometimes the days just fly by. Not unlike everyone else in the United States--and abroad--I have been been experiencing a quite different lifestyle than this time last year. Last... Continue Reading →
The Ricoh TF-500 (T-900 in other markets) is a product of the times. And yes, this is a good thing. You see, from my experience, mid-range cameras from the 1980's (for the most part) were all solid units. By this point in the game, auto-focus and other automated systems had found their footing within the camera market. They... Continue Reading →
I believe my last blog post was published on the 19th of November. Time sure passes quickly! Since that day, I have been busy visiting preserves and natural areas to check off my list (recall the post: A Lofty Goal). In this post, I decided to take a different path (no pun intended). Instead of long-winded introspection, I... Continue Reading →
This visit to Ransom Lake was planned on the drive home from the visit the week prior (being October 1st). As of the 1st of October, the leaves on the deciduous trees had just begun to reveal their fall splendor. Peeks of reds, oranges and golds adorned the landscape. This is why I decided to...

Northern Michigan is known for its 'sudden' weather shifts. The morning may be quite rainy and humid. Later that morning, the winds can shift, causing a cold front to move in. And later that evening, the skies suddenly begin to rumble far off in the distance. All seems benign...until exiting the cover of the forest. The... Continue Reading →
Tonight's post will contain few words. Instead, this post will focus solely on a few photographs (captured with my Kodak P-880) from a recent visit to one of my all-time favorite places, Deepwater Point. Enjoy! Thanks for taking time out of your day to visit my page. 🙂 -Adam K.
The late day sun offered a golden glow to the flowing sea of grasses lining the trail. The leaves of trees rustled gently, carrying with it the honey-sweet symphony of birds hidden in the underbrush. I had come out to this trail head in hopes of capturing some great shots of the songbirds that frequent this... Continue Reading →
A few weeks back, my mother and I assisted the Grand Traverse Conservation District staff plant Milkweed plugs along the banks of the Boardman River. This section of the river, and many others, have been restored to flow along a more natural path (after the removal of the aging dam). Spring 2017 The restoration efforts entailed...

In an age when smart phones have become the camera of choice, bridge cameras have largely been put aside and forgotten. And why not? The phone camera is simple to operate, pocket-able, and captures moments that can quickly be shared to social media. Plus. phone cameras have come a long way-- I am always impressed with...

It is no secret that I am passionate about wetlands. I love everything about them. I especially love photographing them...especially wetlands with large, towering Cumulus clouds gracefully traversing the horizon. This past Sunday, I had the opportunity to do just that...photograph a picturesque wetland located just outside of Traverse City. Getting a Little Lost After a... Continue Reading →
