OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As I was looking through a few of the photos that I took while I was in Ohio, recently, I came upon this one. I thought about how simple and complicated cameras have become. In one manner, they can be point-and-shoot. In another way, they have have menu systems that are so complex as to enable one to become quite lost. I remember this young lady wanted to take a photo of a couple of people that I assume were…

This handsome fellow is “Baby Dale”. Anyone who is a friend of my niece Venus knows who this is. She posts, it seems, every minute of his life on Facebook. Vanessa has a thing for him too, but I’m not jealous … well, at least not much. This morning as I was out walking in the wonderful temperatures of a northern Ohio August, I was noticing the light, specifically the soft, diffuse quality of the light. By 9:00 AM, the…

Nope. It’s not a typo. I realize that the b and v keys are right next to each other, but I assure you, it’s sailor talk rather than fancy fingers. This weekend, I got to participate in one of Vanessa’s passions: Sailing. You see, a few weeks ago, she bought a Sunfish, a small sailing vessel. Since that time, I’ve learned of such terms as: tacking, jib, jibe, and that a rope is called a line when it’s attached to…

I don’t know why, but from the time that I was a child, I heard that when it is raining and the sun is shining at the time time then that meant that the devil was beating his wife. Well, I guess that he was not too happy with his wife today because for about 10 minutes the sun was shining and the rain was falling. I hope that she’s OK. OK – My first bilingual post! It says the…

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…
