Friday night bonus drop! What better way to spend a Friday afternoon and evening by editing and publishing another batch of photos. A few notes from me…

July 8 is a special one to me. Throughout 2020 and 2021 there are a lot more compositions like this where I’m standing in the water, sometimes neck-deep with Delilah. After ten days without seeing the sun at sunrise, I’m eager for these summer mornings swims at sunrise.

March 4 shows Marquette’s famous Picnic Rocks, where alumni of Marquette Senior High School paint the rock with their class year. In the spring or summer of 2020 it was painted to read ‘71, and has been that way for almost two years now.

Perhaps my favorite from the batch is November 27, where I happened to be in the same vantage point at the second time of the year when the sun shines between these trees. I did my best to match the same wintery composition from January 31, 2019, a favorite which was one of the coldest sunrises to date.

You’ll also find some site updates, including new living room mockups for each photo, additonl print purchasing information, and a few behind the scenes updates for a quicker loading website.

This one took about 8 hours to edit and publish, with a few breaks for food and what not. Thhis is going to pay off one day, right? I sure hope so. Would appreciate your patronage as a BugsyLand™ membership to help justify this time and energy. Have a look around…
