Blog Roll: Meet Mike Pirnat

This post begins a new tradition for me, introducing you to the bloggers in my Blogroll. First up is Mike Pirnat, the man behind A Leaf on the Wind. I first started reading Mike thanks to his connection to my long-time friend, Eric Meyer. (Yes, Cleveland connects us all.)

What started out as an online correspondence eventually grew into a real-life friendship. Truth be told, what initially attracted my attention was that Mike’s wife Liz was studying wine professionally. I began following her progress and soon enough we had developed a regular correspondence, which led me to act as an unofficial winery tour guide when Mike and Liz visited Washington State.

Mike and I keep up with each other mainly on Twitter and by reading each other’s blogs these days. Aside from being an easy going travel mate, Mike is a bit of a Python expert and Lego-obsessed photographer. Check out his blog to see the world through his lens.

    Thanks for the kind write-up, Jenny! It’s worth mentioning that your Mike’s 365 project (http://www.mikerussellfoto.com/blog/category/365) is what inspired me to try my hand at it this year.

    I really need to do an updated self-portrait one of these days; I think that one is probably four years old at this point! (Also, has it *really* been almost five years since that road trip? And three since my last trip to Seattle? Egad!)
