Grilling Chicken for Dinner

Tonight for dinner I’m grilling a simple skin on bone in chicken breast. I like leaving the skin on and bone in so that the chicken is real moist. We’re at our Ironworks cabin so we almost always grill.  The spice I use is Boswell’s Blends – Fowl-n-Feather Seasoning.  I bought it at one of […]

One Photo Focus – Robin Kent’s White House

I didn’t do a great deal of editing to Robin’s already great image. In Lightroom, the image was sharpened and a few changes made to exposure. I tried to bring down the yellow cast in the building and did so a bit. Mostly I cropped the image and removed the people from the foreground grassy […]
