Fresh and yummy! I’ve lived in Charlotte since June of 2004. I heard about the Farmer’s Market when I first got here and made myself a promise that ‘one day’ I would go to the market and pick up some things. Well, time has a way of marching on and when I woke up this morning, Saturday, September 24th, I decided that today is the day that I go to the market! I looked outside and it was dreary and…

A bit of sunshine I looked at my blog and saw that the last time that I posted was about a week ago, on the 15th. It happens every once in a while. I just don’t have anything to say. This also coincided, almost to the day, the last time that I had taken any photos. That is unusual. I usually take at least a picture or two. The last 10 days, it seems, have been unseasonably cool, and, for…

I attended my first Worldwide Photowalk in July of 2009, in Charleston, SC. I didn’t attend the one in Charlotte last year; however, I do intend to walk this year on October 1st. The only question that I have this year, is which one to attend. Within a ‘reasonable’ driving distance, of say about 2 hours, I have my choice of Charlotte, Greenville, SC, Asheborro, NC (NC Zoo walk), Asheville, NC, or Spartanburg, SC. So many choices. I think though…

Edited in King Camera As you know, I’ve become quite enamored with the capabilities of the iPhone 4’s camera. I think, though, more than that, I’ve become impressed with the application offerings and their low cost. At between $0.99 and $4.99 it makes them well within reach of most anyone, certainly more in reach than $299, or even $69.95 for that matter; however, that is not comparing, as they say, apples to apples. In my trials of various applications, I…

Every once in while, I’ll hit upon a photo that I really like. I’ve been tagging them with the tag: favorites. So far this year, I’ve tagged 3 photos, including this one. Not bad! James and I were walking down the beach on Saturday evening, heading towards the Morris Island Lighthouse. The sun was heading down, to the left and slightly behind us as we walked. When we got to this particular patch of sand, I stopped. James stopped. He…

I was just over at Andreas’s site and read his post, I took a trip on a Gemini spacecraft. In the post he mentions the fact that he has a 2 terabyte drive, almost full, and another new one 2 TB drive. Wow! When I read this, it evoked memories from my days working for E-Systems in Garland, TX. At the time, around 1990, they were talking about a futuristic storage systems that would store data, using tapes, robotic arms…
