Book Review #9

(I found this image here)

I have done a book review before about field guides (Mushrooms Demystified, which I wrote about here). I am doing another one (and will probably do more) just because learning from field guides is one of my favorite things to do. Being unemployed, I have plenty of time when not looking for work, to learn new things. I'm basically doing everything that I would do when I retire some 45 years from now.

I have been photographing some rocks that were my grandfathers, drawing them, and attempting to identify them. I've always been interested in rocks and minerals, and having lots of rocks around as been a definite push.

These rocks are also going to push me into doing more macro photography. I'm working on a project right now that is in black and white, but as soon as that is finished I will be macro-ing my time rocks!

In what ways do you teach yourself new things? With books? From friends? College?

That's such a neat project. How cool your grandfathers rocks with a new hobby and with your photography. Awesome. :)

I learn things all sorts of ways. I like taking community classes (knitting, art, etc.) when I can and am always reading books about something. College teaches me a little now and then. :)

p.s. So glad you stopped by my blog so I could find yours too! I plan on sticking around to see more. :)
