October 2004: Tony attempted to make the middle school basketball team and was cut. January 2005-Sept 2005: Time for a lessonTony was playing on a competitive basketball team. Subsequently, he was cut from that team because the coach thought that Tony wasn’t dedicated to improving. This was true and I had no hard feelings with the coach because he was right. It was just one of life’s hard little lessons that need to be learned.Sept 2005 – January 2006: Training…

This, unfortunately, is a memorial for a student, Travis Davis, that was murdered. From all accounts, he was walking to the bus stop after having his hair braided at his girlfriend’s house, chased into the woods, and then shot. This young man, who was just starting his life at 18, was gunned down, in cold blood, by a 17 year old, A.J. McMullin. This thug had a previous record of possession of a stolen vehicle and hit and run. The…

Sometimes I impose constraints upon myself. For example, this evening I wanted to shoot, but didn’t really feel like going anywhere, so I decided that I would come up with something interesting inside of the house. Naturally, this limits my nature shots, save Hobbs. So, as the sun was waning, I observed the many different patterns that it left on various pieces of furniture, mini-blinds, the floor, etc. This gave me more than enough material to work with. It can…

I went to Reedy Creek the other day and noticed that most of the flowers had gone dormant. There were a few that are still flowering and, to my surprise, a few bees that are still on the job. I did notice, however, that these bees are moving awfully slowly these days. This one, in particular, I observed for quite a few minutes. I didn’t know if he was dead or alive because he didn’t move! I took this shot…

Alas, it is the last day of Daylight Savings Time. Not that one has to do with the other, but this morning, Hobbs and I did our usual walk through the neighborhood. We didn’t get a chance to go yesterday because we had rain for the entire day, well into the evening hours. However, it has been nice, since the sun is rising much later, to be able to go for the walk before the sun begins to rise and…

Hey! This is a G-rated blog! Get your mind out of the gutter! I’m talking about lenses! Since April of this year I seem to have been on the upgrade path. I got my new camera in a kit that had an 18-70mm f/4.5-5.6 zoom (my favorite lens) and a 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 zoom. Not much later, I bought a used 500 mm mirror lens, which I used for a few months and was quite happy with. Well, the bug bit…
