Of Dragonborn

The Dragonborn arrive in Eberron and Cormyr and while they are not the normal race I would play, I must say I really do like the look of them.  They remind me of Draconians from Dragonlance.

While venturing around in Kings Forest, I was left little choice in killing a kin-race.     I’ve got mixed feelings on this one.  I was willing to negotiate;  give me your treasure and you can live.   Simple enough terms I thought.   Anyways, dead dragon it is.

Passtime

With changing lifestyle, growing family and the demands of day-to-day life; finding some personal time to relax becomes harder.    One of the pass times I still engage in, albeit less now than before, is playing Guild Wars 2 aka GW2.  This is an MMORPG, Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game.     GW2 is definitely massive.   Even today I’m still finding places in the world, Tyria, that take my breath away.    What follows is a small showcase of Tyria.

Patience

This past year I’ve been teaching my daughter more about photography.   A medium that she finds interesting and fun.

One of the things we’ve been working on is being at the right place and at the right time.  Sometimes you have a degree of control over this.  Other times you simply sit and wait, camera in hand for that moment.

I was very fortunate today to capture this photo of a bird in flight today.   A Rose Breasted Cockatoo.
