I’ve been following the Facebook Page, Humans of New York for a while now. I love it! I love it so much that I bought the book of the same name. The name of the photographer is Brandon Stanton, who, according to the book, set out in the summer of 2010 to photographic census of New York. I don’t think that he could have even imagined where this would go … First, a little side trip: I love pictures of…

My friend, and fellow blogger, Tom Dills came up with an idea that he wanted to try. He wanted to catch the Lynx light rail here in Charlotte, exit at each stop, take a few pictures, and then resume the journey. We’d tried to do this some weeks earlier, but couldn’t arrange our schedules. On Saturday, we got the chance. So, Tom, Don Brown, another one of our photographer buddies, and I got together, boarded the train, and set off…

Each time that I come into my office/study/computer room, there it is, my bag that contains my Nikon D700 and its complement of lenses, nice glass indeed. I took exactly 97 shots with it last year. Yep. 97. I’ve had my OM-D E-M5 since January of 2013, which I can hardly believe! The OM-D E-M1 since November of 2013, so just over a year. Both of these cameras see plenty of use. They’ve been to the far reaches of North…

This time, as I walked through the desert, spent time reading, sleeping, walking, or perhaps doing nothing, I didn’t feel lonely at all … not one bit. I was great company to myself. I liked…

See those mountains out there? They look pretty small, don’t they? Well, I figured that they weren’t but a couple of miles away that I could easily walk to the base, or get close to see the detail. (What a rookie!). As I continued to walk and walk and walk towards them, no more detail was resolved. There was nothing but an unspoken promise that if I kept walking, I’d get there. Eventually, I gave up, realizing that they were…

One of the things that I did at the end of the year was to get a new phone and, more importantly, switch carriers. I had been with Big Red, or Verizon forever – since they were PrimeCo, and GTE, and whatever else they gobbled up to become Verizon. I was impressed with their coverage. Of late, T-Mobile has become the un-carrier, dropping prices, getting rid of contracts, etc. I had a look at their coverage map, considered how I…
