OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It seems that now every weather system that comes through needs a name. I remember when only hurricanes got named and when all of those names were names of women. On Monday night, in came Winter Storm Octavia (sound ominous, no?). She stumbled into Charlotte, dropped some freezing rain, a little sleet, then went on about her merry way. Hardly a “storm”. One of my coworkers who just moved from New Jersey said that it was cool that he could…

Sometime last year, in the summer perhaps, Vanessa and I were walking through Uptown Charlotte. I was showing her the various buildings where I had worked. One of those buildings was the Bank of America Corporate Center. The lobby of the Corporate Center is quite sumptuous containing nice leather chairs, live plants, plenty of marble, and some lovely murals painted high upon the walls. I would show you a picture of one, but B of A security has this policy…

I’ve been following the Facebook Page, Humans of New York for a while now. I love it! I love it so much that I bought the book of the same name. The name of the photographer is Brandon Stanton, who, according to the book, set out in the summer of 2010 to photographic census of New York. I don’t think that he could have even imagined where this would go … First, a little side trip: I love pictures of…

My friend, and fellow blogger, Tom Dills came up with an idea that he wanted to try. He wanted to catch the Lynx light rail here in Charlotte, exit at each stop, take a few pictures, and then resume the journey. We’d tried to do this some weeks earlier, but couldn’t arrange our schedules. On Saturday, we got the chance. So, Tom, Don Brown, another one of our photographer buddies, and I got together, boarded the train, and set off…

Each time that I come into my office/study/computer room, there it is, my bag that contains my Nikon D700 and its complement of lenses, nice glass indeed. I took exactly 97 shots with it last year. Yep. 97. I’ve had my OM-D E-M5 since January of 2013, which I can hardly believe! The OM-D E-M1 since November of 2013, so just over a year. Both of these cameras see plenty of use. They’ve been to the far reaches of North…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I was going through some of my pictures, thinking about how I felt during the time that I was taking them. I have been places by myself and sometimes felt quite lonely – mind you, alone is a fact, loneliness is a state of mind. This time, as I walked through the desert, spent time reading, sleeping, walking, or perhaps doing nothing, I didn’t feel lonely at all … not one bit. I was great company to myself. I liked…
