Photograph of a desk with a leather rest and writing area

For a long time now I’ve been using a piece of 16″ x 20″ black card on my desk as a rest and writing surface. It had begun to look a little the worse for wear, with water stains, cat snot, ink spills, and whatever on it. Rather than spend another $5+ on more card, …

Finished for the weekend – It’s been a busy two months, and that’s (hopefully) the last of my big events finished until November. One-minute read, 2 pictures

Keystone 8mm Home Movie Camera

I needed a stock picture for an advert promoting a Facebook Live Video event. Rather than buy something, I took a quick picture of a movie camera in my collection.

Vacation Days 3-5 – Working. All I had to do was create the artwork and then upload it all to the printer’s website — That was before we rented two weeks display time on an electronic billboard. Three-minute read

My Preferred Technology … contrasted with the technology I actually use to get my work done.

Today I was off to Carthage first thing to grab a couple of interviews on video. While I was there I took a couple of pictures of the YMC and Diocesan Council. It made a nice change to be there just to take pictures (okay video) and not be attending to talk or take part. …

Maine Coon, Blue Kitteh sleeping on the edge of Gary Allman's office desk.

Watching my work companion I’m thinking it might be worth my while switching allegiances to Buddhism. After all, from what I’ve seen, the possibility of being reincarnated as an in-door domestic cat seems to be a pretty good option.

Christ Episcopal Church Springfield, MO - Stewardship Poster

My idea this year was to emphasize just how much the church does and what is at stake if we don’t maintain a healthy level of giving of our time, funds, and experience (time, treasure, talent to use church-speak).

Many years ago I managed a video/software production department. What the team would have given for access to the technology on show here. Back then cameras were big and expensive, and edit suites bigger and frighteningly expensive. 2 videos, 13 minutes total

Stock photograph (not mine) selected and purchased by the customer. Edit for revised aspect ratio, insets and text added.

I’ve always liked the Ozarks Walkabout logo. Recently we updated the website design so some slight reworking on the logo font was needed. This is the result.

Nice and simple logo. I wanted to stick with the red of the Davis-Allman logo because it is easy to spot in a pack of business cards. Red is not supposed to be a strong business color, but sometimes it pays to stand out from the crowd. The foot idea is overused but something was …

I was looking for a good idea for my Flickr cover image and remembered an old Film Strip Template I had. So I got it out, brushed it off and tidied it up. What better set of images to use it for than these? This is a series of pictures we took in my car …
