I’m on an old version of the iPhone … well, old version as far as technology is concerned, iPhone 6. I know! Prehistoric. During my time in Guatemala, I took about 1/4 of the pictures with the iPhone. As I look through them, and others that I’ve taken with that phone, I’m impressed. They seem to be very sharp, have good color, and all that I can ask for. The featured image, a picture of the falls in Falls Park…

One morning, in Guatemala, there were 5 of us sitting around the breakfast table. Kayla was sitting to my right, Adéle directly across from me, Meghan to her left, and Pablo, one of the residents of the house, to my immediate left, at the head of the table. We were having a conversation about something. As normally happens with conversations, there was a lull in it. Everyone became quiet. 3 … 2 … 1 … I like tacos!!! ~Kayla Suddenly…

In George Orwell’s book, 1984, about a “future” dystopia, the main antagonist is Big Brother/The Thought Police/The Government.

Cameras are strictly prohibited in the courtroom as photography endangers the lives of court employees! The other day I went down to the main courthouse in Charlotte.

One day, I noticed a group of surveyors with their tools, marking here and there, taking measurements, a sure sign of changes that were about to happen. I’ve seen it several times before! Within a few short…

Some of my friends, and coworkers, will ask: When are you going to post pictures of your trip? Now, that’s a good question. Of course, I post them here as I write blog posts, but, as my fellow photographers know, selecting pictures to post or print is a process. I’m still going through the photos that I took in Guatemala, some 2 weeks after my return, and I’ve found exactly 3 that I may want to print. The rest, good…

Well, not really, but pretty darn close. Both taken with the same camera, but on different days, different times. One taken at 6:30 AM, the other at 7:00. One at 35 mm, the other at 24 mm. Kind of outlines the importance, for me, to visit the same place multiple times. You never know when the light will be your favor!
