I photographed sunflowers over a period of several days. My goal was to capture this landscape at all hours- morning, evening and under the stars. I spent many hours atop a ladder-stand with camera mounted on a vintage 10 foot tall Gitzo tripod.

Business Insider Magazine polled 1603 respondents asking which state in the Union has the worst scenery. Map above illustrates the results. I felt compelled to respond! Many don’t realize Kansas is in fact a destination state and I personally know several people who travel across the world each year to experience The Land of the South Wind. I love Natural Kansas. It provides the perfect canvas for my storm chase adventures as well as general recreation and photography. I’ve learned that every part of the world is interesting and indeed exciting when you take the time to have a closer look. Let me show you MY Kansas!

I’ve been practicing the Paleo Diet for 8 months. As a result my weight has stabilized 40 pounds below previous. I eat my fill 3 times per day. Exercise is moderate at best. So, what is the Paleo Diet? Essentially it’s a diet based on our evolutionary past. Primarily it recognizes the diseases of civilization resulting from eating a diet designed by our modern methods of farming and industrial food production. By nature a skeptic, I’m always looking for good science. Modern food writers tend to parrot each other perpetuating memes and here-say. The organic chemist Mat LaLonde resonates with me, he is interviewed below. Mat is an advocate of the ancestral diet but highly critical of claims that cannot be supported by evidence. The following podcast helped shape my nutrition philosophy. I invite you to listen to the link provided below.

Battery life on my iPhone dropped to a paltry 1.5 hours. My phone, which is also my primary camera, died during a visit to the Missouri State Fair. Thus, this photographer was unable to take pictures! In addition, general speed and performance (video playback) was very poor as well. Apparently my phone had apps running in the background. I did not even know they did that! Also, there were several operations taking place that I never need or don’t need all the time. I’ve collected three videos that explain what I’ve done to increase speed and lengthen battery life. These tips are working for me!
I’ve also purchased this portable power bank for emergency charge-ups in the field. $24 at Radio Shack.
