I saw these folks when I went for a walk this afternoon. The dog was pretty excited about it and stopped by to greet me before continuing with giving his sleigh ride. Everyone seemed to be taking things in stride. Even as I type this, the snow continues to fall and even increase. As a matter of fact, I hear a little sleet mixed in with it. My E-M1 performed flawlessly. I had to wipe the lens a couple of…

Good prediction, weather folks. It’s really coming down. I like it. Had fun tweaking with sliders and trying something a bit different.

Yesterday, another nice day in Charlotte. It was about 61 degrees and I was driving up S. Tryon St. going to meet my friend, James, for dinner. A few car lengths ahead, I noticed a truck spraying something on the street. I couldn’t read the sign on the truck, but I thought that it might have been cleaning the streets.

Well, the sign is not nearly 30+ years old like the towers that stand behind it. Bricks are falling off of the side. Doors swing in the breeze. Pigeons fly in and out of the building. Planes fly over indifferently. Life moves on. At one time, Jim Bakker (pronounced Baker) and Tammy Faye Bakker were at the top their game with Heritage USA. It was a good idea. Heritage USA opened in 1978, and by 1986 had become one of…

I have to say that this Olympus M. Zuiko 45mm f/1.8 lens has got my attention. I like it! Before I went to Mexico in October of last year, I’d mentioned that I was going to shoot the entire week using a rented 17mm lens. Well, of course, I changed my mind and purchased the 45 mm f/1.8 and took that with me too. I was glad that I did. As a matter of fact, most of the people pictures…
