My name is Mike. I love being a stay-at-home parent because, most of the time, I have no idea what I'm doing. Each day, I'm learning something new, I think (or I hope).
I put up a new photo gallery, End of Summer. I appreciate a visit—and do let me know what you think.

Let me know what you think. And happy Thanksgiving to you.
I've redesigned my my photo blog at mikeleonen.com. Three reasons:
- I had nothing else to do
- I drank too much coffee and can't sleep
- I wanted to focus on sharing photography and Photoshop tips and tutorials.
I start by sharing 12 Photo Ideas To Try This Summer. I post (or share a new photo idea) Tuesdays and Thursdays.
If you have the time to try any of the ideas I've listed or will be listing, let me know by posting a link to your photo in my photo blog's comment section. If you have a photography- or Photoshop-related question, send me an email.

Let me know what you think. If you are interested, come back Tuesday and I'll show you how I created this image.
"Wow, Daddy," my 4-year old said after I showed him the image. "I like it."
"Thanks," I said.
"You know what I like about the picture?" my 4-year old asked.
"The dog," he said.
Hmp. That was supposed to be a cow.

Any parenting advice this pumpkin-carving season? I have one—
Never tell your kid the biggest pumpkin is the greatest pumpkin, especially if you've been designated to pick and carry that pumpkin from the pumpkin patch.
