The other day, during my morning walk, I heard a familiar sound that I hadn’t heard for a few months. A diesel engine … that of a school bus! The drivers were out practicing their routes, getting timings, or becoming familiar with the route, I suppose. Yesterday, I saw this group of people floating lazily down the Saluda River in Columbia, SC. There were a few kids in the mix. Now, it’s time to put down those summer party favors…

In reality, solar eclipses are not all that rare – for a particular area they are. The next one for North America will be in 2024, but they happen around the world frequently. If you want to know, here ya go! I had made plans to take pictures of the eclipse using the time lapse feature of my camera, but lo and behold, I had to revert to old school. You see, even the little bit of light getting around…

It’s days like this, hot and humid days, when I think of the mountains, frequently. I think of how nice and cool it is atop of Mt. Mitchell, the highest peak east of the Mississippi River – right here in little ol’ North Carolina. I was up there a few weeks ago. It was 90+ in Charlotte, but atop of Mt. Mitchell, a nice, cool 58, or so. It was lovely and a bit chilly. However, thanks to one Willis…

Its rare that I use my printer, maybe a couple of times per year. Today is one of those days. I was looking at the prints on my wall, of my various travels, and see that I have none from Cuba, this visit to Guatemala, India, nor even my trip to Europe two years ago. Time to get printing and refreshing. Instead of buying new frames and new mats, I simply print new photos, take the olds out, store them…

Long, long ago – 1984 to be exact – when I first started worked for Texas Instruments in Dallas, TX, I worked part time at a 1-Hour photo. Prior to moving to Texas, I had worked in another job doing the same thing, part time. I really liked it a lot and figured, why not continue?! So, since I worked 2nd shift at T.I. (3:00 PM – 11:30 PM), I took a job developing photos from 8:30 – 2:00 PM…

In yesterday’s post, I featured a picture of this car and Cedric wanted to know the story. Well, this shot was taken in Antigua Guatemala on Cerro de la cruz, or, The Hill of the Cross. On this particular day, there were quite a few people there. One of my fellow students, Meghan, and I walked up to the top of the hill. According to my FitBit, about 34 stories. Not too bad. While we were up there, we noticed…
