Saturday morning, I wanted to go out and run a couple of rolls of film through the Mamiya 645e before going to Charleston for the photo walk next week. As it turned out, Saturday was overcast and drizzly pretty much all day. All that I had were two types of film to work with: ISO 100 and ISO 25! I opted for the 100. I went to a place close to my house, Anne Springs Greenway. Now, the standard lens…

I saw these chalkboards, posted on the side of a building, on the way to work. I stopped, read both boards fully, took some pictures, continued to work. I smiled at many of them. Some where cute, others funny, others personal, a few sexual. My favorite of the bunch was: Find out where Carmen Sandiego is I’ve made the photos large enough, hopefully, so that you can have a look and choose your own favorite!

Last night, I was browsing Google Earth, seeing what was around my area. I noticed a small like that I’d never seen. So, this morning, before going to work, I set out to see what this lake was about.

As I drove back, circling around Lake Wylie, I noticed that there access to the lake was almost exclusively through some piece of…

When things are not too hectic at work, I will work from home on most Tuesdays and Fridays. There’s still work to be done, but top speed is not essential. Working from home I have a slower connection and smaller monitors, so lower throughput, but people aren’t asking for updates every 10 minutes! Today is one such day.

So there it was. A nice scene before me – a cool evening, kids playing soccer in the grass, the light topping the trees and painting the top of the mountain in the distance, a girl sitting on the fence watching the same. Perfect. I got my Mamiya 645e out of the car, framed up this photo, pressed the shutter … and, click – the camera locked up! Crap! Earlier, I had taken the camera off of the shelf, literally…

Well, it’s that time again and, as usual, time is slipping right on by. I think that the last photo walk that I went to was in Charlotte, two years ago. There, I met Michael, fellow photographer. He and I have been on a few shoots and had a few lunches since then. This year, on October 3rd, I plan to go to the one in Charleston, SC. The last time that I went to that one was in June…
