OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

On Ashland Ave, nearly due south was Firestone Park. Each year, on the 4th of July, they held a pretty good fireworks display. I don’t remember that we ever went to the park to see the display, but I do remember that I get to see bits and pieces of it every year by looking down towards the end of the street, over the treetops. This was a pretty special night for us as most of my friends had to…

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been able to accomplish a couple of things in the morning simultaneously. I’m able to have a walk that looks quite impressive because of the copious amounts of sweat that my body sheds, even though it may only be 68 degrees, as well as moisturizing my skin. The humidity level has been frequently in the mid to high 90% level! I’ve enjoyed going to the dam, too, now that I know where it is…

I’ve always had a thing for cone flowers. So, last year, I bought some, planted them in the backyard, and this year, they have returned and are quite showy. I used to have to drive to enjoy them in other gardens, now they are just a few steps away. I enjoy looking at them every morning. The other day, I decided to go out and take a few portraits. I’m no gardener, for sure, but theses plants are hardy and…

I have to say, after reading this story, I am impressed by this young man’s restraint and foreword thinking when this lunatic woman attacked him on the beach for exercising his 1st Amendment rights of self expression. Yes. He was taking photos! Imagine that. She called 911 three times, and, when they didn’t show up – because he was doing nothing illegal, she decided to attack him and teach him a lesson about taking pitchers of people in public. She…

Ping! Ping! PingPingPing! Ring! Ping!Ping! “I see that you’re in a meeting or are busy, but can you IM right now?” Ping – The sound that the computer makes when someone is trying to send you a Microsoft Office Communicator Instant Message, or IM, as we call it. Multitasking – Well, you know what that is – being in a meeting and doing other things – in other words, not paying attention to the meeting because you have too much…

This weekend, Michael, a fellow photographer, went out to take photos of Spider Lilies. While we were out, we met a guy named Larry. Larry was new to photography and he and I started chatting about places to go shoot. He told me about the Lake Wylie Dam, in Fort Mill, SC, which is not very far from my house … about 15 minutes I found out … eventually. I’d never been to the dam before, so I asked for…
