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…

It was only a few weeks ago that I was sitting on the porch in Guatemala, shivering, wishing that I had brought some long pants and a jacket. Oh well, I’ll know better next time. However, I was able to get a blanket and warm up a bit and, as an added bonus, was able to keep the mosquitoes off of me! In the mornings, during my walks, the temperatures were in the upper 50s, quite nice for walking. Well…

I’m on an old version of the iPhone … well, old version as far as technology is concerned, iPhone 6. I know! Prehistoric. During my time in Guatemala, I took about 1/4 of the pictures with the iPhone. As I look through them, and others that I’ve taken with that phone, I’m impressed. They seem to be very sharp, have good color, and all that I can ask for. The featured image, a picture of the falls in Falls Park…

These piles of mulch were formerly a wall of trees that lined S. Tryon St. I passed them every day. Occasionally, I saw a hawk alight on the telephone lines near the street or saw several deer as they bounded through the brush. One day, I noticed a group of surveyors with their tools, marking here and there, taking measurements, a sure sign of changes that were about to happen. I’ve seen it several times before! Within a few short…

Some of my friends, and coworkers, will ask: When are you going to post pictures of your trip? Now, that’s a good question. Of course, I post them here as I write blog posts, but, as my fellow photographers know, selecting pictures to post or print is a process. I’m still going through the photos that I took in Guatemala, some 2 weeks after my return, and I’ve found exactly 3 that I may want to print. The rest, good…
