OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I really like the work of Byron Katie and I follow her Facebook page. Yesterday, she had a post that said: With nothing to compare yourself to, aren’t you perfect! ~Byron Katie Speaking of FB, there is a photographer that I used to follow. I liked his work because it was different. However, he was always about comparisons and how someone else’s work didn’t measure up, never pointing fingers directly, but as a group, and how they “should” do this…

Well, spring is upon us. The weeds are blossoming in the yard. The daffodils are showing their colors, and the winter has left behind quite a few branches on the ground as it helped to trim the various trees in my backyard. One of my favorite trees used to be the river birch. I loved the curly bark on the trees; however, now that I have a couple of them in my backyard, I’m not so excited about them. They…

I still enjoy photography and writing, but haven’t had much to say of late…

It seems that now every weather system that comes through needs a name. I remember when only hurricanes got named and when all of those names were names of women. On Monday night, in came Winter Storm Octavia (sound ominous, no?). She stumbled into Charlotte, dropped some freezing rain, a little sleet, then went on about her merry way. Hardly a “storm”. One of my coworkers who just moved from New Jersey said that it was cool that he could…

Sometime last year, in the summer perhaps, Vanessa and I were walking through Uptown Charlotte. I was showing her the various buildings where I had worked. One of those buildings was the Bank of America Corporate Center. The lobby of the Corporate Center is quite sumptuous containing nice leather chairs, live plants, plenty of marble, and some lovely murals painted high upon the walls. I would show you a picture of one, but B of A security has this policy…
