Updates at my main website.

Huge changes are in the works at markhoffmanphotography.com, If you haven’t been there in a while it’s worth the trip. New design. New layout. Just new. There used to be around a thousand images for viewing/sale. Things have been trimmed. A lot. Some of the images will be returning to the various galleries and albums. […]

The Power Of The Print

Somewhere I read that information is being amassed and recorded at a rate so prodigious that no single human could read even a single day’s record in his/her entire lifetime. This assertion seems reasonable to me. So what of the historian of the future? Humans, if they still exist, many hundreds of years from now […]

Rattlesnake! Not again.

Prairie Rattlesnake

Having just added a post about the scarcity of rattlesnakes and encounters with them, I find I must amend that post. Yesterday, on a trek up the side of a hill I’ve been up hundreds of times, I happened upon two Prairie Rattlesnakes within 40 feet of one another. This particular hillside and I have […]

Jewel Thieves

Thought for the day: The precarious human predicament owes its existence to thieves. Jewel thieves. Good ones. Except that “jewel” is misspelled. The word is joule. A term describing energy. That’s important to humans because we use joules all the time. We use them every second of every day our entire lives. Without them we’d […]

Sea of humanity

I was looking at some photos today on the weather channel’s website, of all places. Photos of the most crowded beaches on earth. The photos showed throngs of people, packed together like sardines in a can, arranged along ocean beaches at various places throughout the world. These photos were taken from an elevated position and […]

Caution! These things can hurt you.

That’s a rattlesnake. In the title phrase the operative word is “can”, meaning,  they are able. In other words if they are provoked, cornered, threatened, or attacked they believe in reciprocity and they’re equipped to back it up. But, THEY WOULD RATHER NOT. Given a chance, they will avoid encounters with humans. Dealing with rattlesnakes […]

Train in the garden

Using a high-end DSLR to shoot videos doesn’t interest me at all. But making videos out of strings of still images shot at a very high frame rate fascinates me. You might argue they are the same thing. You’d be correct, sort of. But it’s like comparing true videos to time -lapse. Different, but not. […]

Cave Spring, Utah

Trundling around the American Southwest again, happened upon a very short trail to Cave Spring in Utah’s southern Canyonlands. The place has an other-worldly creepiness to it. I half expected to peer into a darkened rock alcove and find some thousand year old wild animal or possibly a prehistoric human lurking there. Didn’t find either. […]
