Jerome Winter

Hi,

Nothing says winter like a snow storm… in a cemetery… in a (former) ghost town. Hello, Jerome.

Ford Hood Ornament

Hi,

This image of a 1930’s Ford hood ornament was taken about forty years ago. It’s a scan of a Kodachrome 64 slide. The green tint is from overhead fluorescent lights, and the soft focus is from a Cokin soft focus filter. The scanner I use is an Epson Perfection V800 Pro Scanner

Be Careful Who You Do Business With

Be careful who you do business with, even if they are a big name company like National Geographic. Check out this article about missing payments and questionable business practices.

Ebook Sales Still Dropping

Hi Everyone,

If you’re like me, and write books, You should know that the sales of ebooks keeps dropping. In 2015, ebooks accounted for 27% of book sales, by 2016 it was 23% and 2019 saw it drop to 20%.

As of today, all of my books are ebooks. (You can see my ebooks here www.CreativeCauldron.com) Like most independent writers it made sense to go this route instead of printing hundreds of copies of each of my seven books. Then having to store, and eventually ship them.

But after finding out the above statistics from this article on Writer’s Weekly, I see that I must make some changes. Over the past few years the Print On Demand industry has grown, allowing independents like myself to offer books in print and ebook versions.

I’m still checking out some details, but in the near future I will be offering printed versions of my books for photographers, writers and children. I’m looking at doing this through Amazon.

I will let everyone know when printed books are available. I just have to set everything up in my copious amounts of spare time.

Have Fun,
Jeff

North Rim – Red Wall

Hi,

Here’s another shot of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. The red rock/dirt wall in the foreground reminds me of the red rocks in Sedona, Arizona.

Have A Happy, And Slightly Twisted, Holiday Season.

Following are some of my favorite Holiday music videos. You’ll find the entire spectrum from traditional to shall we say, unique. I hope you enjoy them.

Lindsey Sterling, an amazing hip-hop violinist with some great moves. Listen to her perform Carol of the Bells, Hallelujah and Santa Baby.

Next is Pentatonix, an acappella group whose voices blend beautifully. Listen to their versions of Hallelujah, Little Drummer Boy and God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

I’ve always been a big fan of Jewel’s music and poetry, and was fortunate enough to see her in concert once. Listen to her amazing voice as she sings Ave Maria.

There’s always someone who thinks Christmas us just a bunch of Bah Humbug. This video is for you. I hope you enjoy Carol of the Old Ones.

My favorite irreverent Christmas song is The 12 Pains Of Christmas. Have a listen.

Karen Carpenter was an amazing singer, and left us all far too soon. Listen to Merry Christmas Darling by The Carpenters.

I’ve always liked Gloria Estefan’s voice and music. I was even a member of the Press when she dedicated her statue to the Wax Museum in Buena Park, California. I have some great pictures of that event too.

Christmas is more than presents and parties. It’s about reaching out to those in need, righting the wrongs in the world and putting the Christmas Spirit in all we do, all year long. In this video you’ll see wrongs that need to be righted, and successes that have been achieved. We can all do something, big or small, to help others. Go out and help others. Hear Silent Night by Gloria Estefan.

Many years ago there was a great Christmas special called “A Claymation Christmas.” It shows the amazing things that can be done with this form of animation. I hope you enjoy these videos, and remember, it’s all done with clay. Rudolf The Red Nosed Reindeer and Joy To The World.

The Piano Guys make some great music. Check out Carol Of The Bells and O come, O come, Emmanuel

Another great piece of Christmas music is the Christmas Canon by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

Is it really Christmas without hearing Madonna sing Santa Baby?

And finally, if you think you have a great light display on your house, check out this and this one too.

Have a Great Holiday Season! Party on!!!

Have Fun,
Jeff
