Well, I’m in San Miguel de Allende again. This time on an adventure of a different sort. Of course, a lot of photography is taking place, but so is a lot of Spanish. Any conversations that I speak about in this post were done completely in Spanish! I was surprised at how much I actually understood, but then again, Marina and Ernesto speak slowly enough that we can understand. Out on the streets, I still cannot follow a conversation, but…

This is Geordi, Vanessa’s dog. On Sunday we went for a walk, the three of us. I thought for sure that we could tire this little bugger out just a bit. We went to a greenway in Morganton, NC. From start to finish, we walked about 9.25 miles. I had taken my shower and was sitting on the bed. Geordi had made himself comfortable and was relishing the comfort of the bed and the nice, indirect light coming from the…

Suit? Check! Power tie? Check! Glasses? Check! Watch? Check! Shoes? Check! Good to go! A couple of years ago, Tony told me that he was about to start changing his image. He’s always cared about his clothes, the way that he dresses; however, he wanted to take the next step and move from nicely dressed, hip, high school fellow, to someone who would be taken seriously – a businessman.

The downhill ride the the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. This summer I had some work…

“A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.” ~Maya Angelou Every once in a while, I feel the need to take a retreat. This usually happens after lots of activity, like travel, work, Spanish classes, day-to-day – particularly when I haven’t taken time to do much photography, just for the sake of photography – photography only. What I mean by that is doing photography simply for the joy of it, getting up…

With so much rain, it’s been rather dreary; however, the flowers seem to like the situation. I decided to head out into the backyard, grab a few of them, and bring them inside to brighten the interior a bit. I’m glad that I did. They’re quite the bringers of sunshine. It’s nice to see that splash of color sitting on the dining room table. Have a great weekend!
