Hiking along the Metolius River this week we came upon this abandoned cabin. Old sites such as this one are favorites of photographers as we know they might have a limited lifetime. Not too many years ago this walkway did not exist. Now one can take a 1/2 mile hike into the place where the […]
Bullish Percent Indicator data has not been published for a few weeks. With the nice upward move on Friday I was interested in viewing how that move, and the entire events of this week, impacted the PnF graphs. I anticipated many O’s would convert to X’s and that is exactly what happened. All but the […]
Have you ever created a photograph when you knew in advance it was highly likely it would end in a failure. Such was the case yesterday when we were at the Dee Wright Observatory located just west of Sisters, Oregon. Not only was I faced with a dark foreground, the background was blown out even […]

There is also the challenge of trying to match master photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson and Ansel Adams. While the photo below is not even close […]
Since there are a few readers of this investment blog also interested in photography, this post illustrates how one can improve an image with a few minor tweaks using Luminar AI. Here are some specs for this image. I used a full-frame Canon 5D Mark II with a jpg setting. I now make all images […]
