Yesterday morning it snowed, the first snowfall of the year. The temperatures plunged below zero, and in one night some trees dropped all their leaves in a panicked attempt to keep up with the temperature change. It was amazing to see the blankets...

The Joy of Printing

This past weekend I took a class on fine art printing at the Minneapolis Photo Center. The class was two afternoons, Saturday and Sunday, and covered everything from adjustments in Photoshop to make your photos look better in print to different types of paper...
