This image is a portent of what is coming (in fact already beginning to happen)–hard copy books sit on shelves as decoration while we read electronic text. This guy is in a transition stage though; he’s reading something on his smart phone but he’s also got a book of some sort sitting on the table next to his coffee. My Lectio series is being published in the next issue of LensWork magazine. This photo is too new to be part of what that collection of course, but it would have been a good addition.]]>

Happy Christmas/Chanukah/Kwanzaa/Festivus. I hope your holidays and 2015 go great for you. This photo features a closer view of some of the Gallatin Range just south of Bozeman. These are some of the same mountains seen in the Mountains of Clouds POTD from a couple of weeks ago.]]>
