Winter Aspen

Hi,

Winter is definitely here. For the last several mornings it’s been 23-25 degrees (-5 to -3.8 C) in the morning. This stark and bare aspen always reminds me of winter.

Old Studebaker

Hi,

I’ve always liked this Studebaker at the Gold King Mine & Ghost Town, which is next to Jerome, Arizona. The Gold King is filled with great things, big and small, from the time when mining went on in Jerome.

Comments Off on Photo Magazines Closing

Photo Magazines Closing

There are two more casualties in the changing photography industry.

Photo District News (PDN) magazine just closed after 40 years of publication.

Rangefinder magazine is going to digital only. I’m not saying this will happen, but it seems that when a print magazine goes to digital only, it closes in a year or two.

The publishing markets for photographers gets smaller every day.

Have Fun,
Jeff

Hi,

The Granite Dells in Prescott, Arizona is an amazing place. There are all kinds of strange rock formations, two nice lakes and great hiking trails. I saw this formation and thought it looked like a person reclining on their side, which is why I call it “Rock In Repose.”

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

Comments Off on Ebook Sales Still Dropping

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.
