Today’s quote is the third verse from “April Come She Will” and is a track from The Sounds of Silence album released in 1966. The tune was just sticking in my head. I don’t know what it means. It probably means something different to all of us. I think I was in 7th grade in 1966.
I’ve been told to write compelling headlines if I want people to read my blog. But this morning I am experiencing “headline block” similar to writers block. So my ask today is that if you are inspired, leave a suggestion for a headline in the comment section below.
On The Techy Side
As a professional photographer I have to calibrate these expensive lenses and cameras to get the best results for my clients. Shooting wide open at f-1.2, you can see my 50mm prime lens was focusing a few millimeters behind the target. On the right you can see the calibrated image. Don’t forget to calibrate your phone (wink). And there is your “On the Techy Side” moment for the day.
I was at a meeting recently in a fairly large room attended by over 50 people. The organizer had a much needed microphone so everyone could be heard clearly. But then there is always that guy or gal who insist their voice carries and don’t need no stinking microphone because God gave them a voice that carries, so I get to hear them yell. Actually, they don’t know how to use a microphone and are insecure about using one.
It’s similar when it comes to headshots or portraiture. Some boys and girls claim they don’t need no stinking professional headshot, because their service or product is so great it will instantly overcome a crappy photo. Actually, they just don’t like having their photo made and possibly afraid of the way they really look.
Recently I noticed Patty’s headshot on LinkedIn was outdated, so we went to work and made this respectable image.
Feel free to contact me if you are looking for a respectable headshot.

I like the way Tim Ferriss closes many of his podcasts,
“Be a little kinder to yourself, and to others.”
