Welcome to Mark Sinderson dot Com!!

Lift Off!

Welcome to the new blog for everything me, Mark Sinderson.com! Better known as "On The Mark".

I'm glad you're here and I hope you come back again and again to read and learn about all the things that I do with my spare time. My plan is to make this site the clearinghouse for my experiences as I go through life (outside of work) enjoying all the things I can, particularly Photography, Health & Fitness, Food & Drink, Music, and Technology.

After several years of blogging about my varied interests on several different sites I decided to combine as much as possible in one site, and this is the result. Here at "On The Mark" you will find all the details on my somewhat hyper-active approach to life. My primary distraction is Photography, both the digital and film varieties. I re-discovered photography in 2011 and haven't looked back. I find it challenging and relaxing all at the same time. Many of the posts here will be photography related and you will also be able to follow my images on Flickr, 500px, Google + as well as my own portfolio. I'll discuss the various techniques I learn as well as share my experiences with the wonderful world of analog (film) photography. I plan on sharing a number of my images and give you some insight into how and why I made the image

Outside of photography I will toss in posts about the other distractions/passions I pursue. Expect to see some craft beer & food pairings, my latest BBQ recipes that I cook on my beloved Big Green Egg, reviews of the music and books that I'm currently consuming, my take on the world of health and fitness, and reviews of technology/gadgets/audio equipment.

While I plan on generating a lot of content on my own I am hoping to get a lot of input and feedback from all of you. To help that happen I plan on adding as many opportunities as possible for reader input. This could be through polls and surveys or even contests. Stay tuned for more information on this once I get settled into some sort of routine. As the blog develops I'll post updates and provide information on how to participate.

My initial plan is to post 2 to 3 times a week on average. I will share the posts on my Google+ page as well as through Twitter. So, if you are on either of those networks be sure to follow/add me to your circles.

Thanks for stopping by. Please bookmark the site and if you let your friends know about On The Mark I would appreciate it. The more the merrier!
