An entrepreneur is always hesitant to complain about being too busy. After all, the alternative can lead to difficulty putting food on the table. That being said, I would have to confess that I’ve found this fall to be a bit busy for my liking. I’ve had workshops of one description or another almost every weekend.

My wife is a fantastic gardener and in addition to a few vegetable crops we have tremendous wildflower and sunflower gardens.

This summer I managed to slow myself down a little more and now I’m seeing all these little critters who I previously…

After the workshop was over I spent some time reviewing some of the images my students made during the course and it was very exciting to see the marked improvement in their photography…
