This is what they remember! ~~~I promise you that I’m a good mom. I love my kids to DEATH!! But I admit they are just a teeny bit spoiled, and last Christmas they drove me crazy with the “I want this…”, “I want that…”! Ughhh! I want to give them everything, but I want them to have a little perspective too. So when the I-want’s got to be too much, I made them look at this website. The photography is…

Yesterday, I was in Border’s Books waiting for my wife to chose a couple books. So, I went over to the section called, All Things Local, which has books containing North Carolina history, photography, important people, places, etc. I picked up a couple of photography books. These were your typical picture books, containing ultra highly saturated images made to invoke a “Wow!!!” response. None did. Don’t get me wrong, they were good, but a bit over the top in color…

I’m not usually into taking pictures of dilapidation. I prefer to take pictures of things that are in a state of good repair. However, this wall caught my eye.

He said that now he comes to downtown Savannah on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday…

OK, yesterday I took my son, Tony to Lowes Motor Speedway to do his volunteer work. The road leading to the speedway is basically a bunch of campgrounds. I saw more confederate flags, beer bellies, barbecue grills, and short-shorts in one small stretch than I’ve seen in my entire life! This first picture is just an example. C’mon, four guys, 3 beer bellies, 3 confederate flags, a grill, a couple of racing flags and sign above the whole thing saying…

This weekend, I’m in Dallas, TX, which is where I used to live. I’m here to help a friend of mine, Richard, who has a great interest in photography, but is getting somewhat lost in all of the details with shutter speed, aperture, depth of field, yadda, yadda, yadda. So, I flew to Dallas (and boy are my arms tired!) to spend the weekend with him in a sort of boot camp. We started with a discussion about depth of…
