Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #121-Focus on the Subject

It turns out that one of my favorite Subjects for picture-taking is my black cat, Kikyo. She follows me everywhere around the house, so I can take her picture in all sorts of situations. However, isn't it true that it is very tricky to photograph a black cat (see what I did there? Happy Halloween!)? …

Are We Citizens? Or Are We Subjects?

This is a very pertinent question these days, when we hear daily of transgressions against us by our Intelligence Services, the Tax-collecting agency, and our own Justice (?) Department. When the powers-that-be on all levels of government are delegating more and more quasi-legislative power over us, to un-elected bureaucrats. When even the federal Department of …
