Well, actually I don’t really enjoy the 95%+ humidity of summer mornings in Charlotte. Nope. Not at all; however, I must admit that sometimes it can lead to nice pictures that are unavailable in drier air. I’m glad that my cellphone doesn’t mind a bit of humidity and sweat. 🙂

I’d been thinking about this for nearly four years, finally, I decided to pull the trigger. I had Lowe’s install some wood (bamboo) flooring. The guys from Service Pros came out and made short work of this project. It took 3 guys, about 14 hours, or 42 total hours, to remove, prep, lay, and finish about 700 square feet of flooring. As I watched them work, seeing the tools that they used and the obvious expertise that they displayed, I…

I looked at my U-Verse modem, and…

Visiting this blog, you might be tempted to think that a DXP is the hottest new camera around, or maybe has something to do with photography, but you’d be incorrect. It has to do with being hot, but in a different way. Last weekend, I saw this car parked on the sidewalk in front of a Dominos Pizza Store. At first, I thought that it was a tricked out Smart Car, but upon further investigation, found that it is a…

This morning I decided to hang out in the backyard for a bit, taking a few photos when I remembered that there are grapes along my neighbor’s fence. Before I started photographing them, I had to have a taste. It was good! Instantly, from that single taste, I was transported back to childhood, remembering when my friends and I would be in competition with the birds to see who could eat all of the grapes off of the vines. I…
