Gimme some money, man! Yesterday, the weather was really warm so I decided to spend an afternoon in Asheville, NC. There’s always something to see there. It’s pretty much a “hippy” town. There are even a couple of head shops there were you can buy all manner of bong, er, I mean tobacco humidifiers. There are also street musicians on quite a few corners. As I was walking, I noticed this guy. He had just finishing setting up and was…

Fritz and Pedro – Frio River, Leakey, TX 1996 or so While continuing to dig through the archives, I came upon this negative, taken with my Yashica Mat 124G, back some 16+ years ago. Of course, I have cropped it because I felt that it worked a little better this way rather than square. I don’t have a lot of photos of my first Miniature Schnauzer, Fritz. I had Fritz for about 11 years (1988-1999) before he got out and…

There have been many times when I’ve been exceptionally happy that I took up photography as a bobbie; today was one of those times. Although I moved about 7 months ago, I still have a couple of boxes that have been opened, but are still unpacked. They contain film and 4 x 6 prints. Most of the prints, in my humble estimation, are complete, utter crap. LOL – They are not-so-good vacation photos. They are from that time when I…

The problem, sometimes, is that I really don’t have an idea of what the final product might look like, so I don’t even attempt; however, when I was visiting with Anita, she told me that that was her modus operandi. She’d just take an image…

During my morning walk, I walk past this house and if the sun is out, it shines right on the face of what I call, The Guardian, for it seems to me that he is guarding the entrance to this house. For whatever reason, it reminds me of part of Monte Python and The Holy Grail – The Knights who Say Nee! I’m not quite sure why, though. “We want … a shrubbery!!!”

Best seat in the house As planned, I drove down to Congaree National Park this morning. Door to gate, about 100 miles even. I arrived around 10:45 AM, or so. Fortunately, the weather was very cooperative. The sun stayed behind a thin layer of clouds during the time that I was there, casting interesting, yet not-so-harsh shadows. Initially, when I hit the boardwalk that runs through the swamp, I was moving like I was on my morning walk! I was…
