Hobbs: October 31, 1999 – February 15, 2013 My heart had been heavy, for quite a few weeks, my mind laboring intensely about what was the “kind” thing, the “right” thing to do. I’d read so many articles about euthanasia, understanding not only what it was, but when it was appropriate, and, like most things, everyone has an opinion. Actually, I had probably already made the decision as I watched the decline of my good friend, Hobbs; however, I wanted…

Georgetown, SC is just up the road a little way from Charleston, about 90 minutes or so. This weekend, I was in Georgetown. Initially, I thought that this was the first time that I’d been there, but when I got there, started walking around the historic boardwalk, I had a distinct feeling of familiarity. I discounted it almost immediately because I was pretty sure that I hadn’t been there. I would have remembered it, right? After walking around a bit…

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…

Well, the count says 8,503 photos, though in truth, I have no idea how many I shots I took this year. After my massive clean up, there’s no way to tell. It doesn’t matter. I had a great year this year. I traveled a lot. I met Anita, Bill, and Ibarionex in California – that was a nice threefer!. Went to Joshua Tree National Park. Visited my friend Richard in Texas. Went to The Grand Canyon, Mexico, and The Bahamas…

Combat Chuck! Regarding some people, I guess that you can just tell by their steely eyed glare what adjective you should put in front of their name! More of how he got that name, shortly. I spent a fantastic Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning with Combat Chuck, or CC for short. Chuck, of Chuckography, lives in Charleston, SC, my old stomping grounds. I first met Chuck back September of 2008 when I attended his meet-up group called: 21st Century Photography…

A shot from one of the original LensBaby lenses This was the question that my guys asked me the other day and this year, for about the first time, I had a good answer for them, one that they could afford and one that I will like – no need to have it exactly on Christmas Day, either. I’ve been putting my office together in my house and it most certainly has a photography theme to it, so to add…
