Doing what he loves

I wasn’t able to catch the whole conversation between this gentleman and the lady standing next to him, but it had to do with a previous job or jobs. He was saying that he had really gotten tired of working 40 hours/week, the day to day grind and decided, one day, to just give it up. Now, he works, sometimes, part time, but for the most part just comes down to Riverfront Park and plays his guitar for tips. I…

The shirt goes here

The three young men pictured here are from The Citadel, a military college in Charleston, SC. This was a very fortunate shot because, as they walked by, I heard what they were talking about. They were having a debate, of sorts, about where their pants and shirt should fall on their respective bodies. As you can see, all three are pointing to their waist area and one of them is even unbuttoning his jacket to demonstrate.

In the end, Charleston received about 3-5 inches, but had numerous areas that were flooded, roads along the way too. This weekend, my friend James, and I went for a day trip to Charleston. The days…


There’s no riot of colors, nor are there any RV drivers holding up traffic along the 1 mile drive in McDowell Nature Preserve. All was quiet yesterday morning when I went for a walk amongst the leaves, the trees, and of course, the squirrels. The temperature was in the low to mid-50 range. It felt quite good.


This toadstool was positioned so perfectly in the sun that I don’t think that I would have been surprised to see a toad lounging, taking in the morning rays, but unfortunately, there was no toad.
