One of my favorite things to do, now, is to go for a walk in the early morning with Hobbs. My percentage of hand-held shots used to be extremely low. I always used a tripod. However, now I’m getting into a different phase. I really like walking around with my camera around my neck. The downside to this is that the camera weighs in at about 2+ pounds without a lens, so it can seem quite heavy at first. I…

Although the sun sets much earlier, I love the light in the late fall and all winter. It’s at this time of year, that no matter the time, the light is friendly and inviting. Today, I went to lunch with my wife. Of course, I had my handy Canon Sureshot A530 with me. We were to meet at 1:00, but she was slightly delayed. So, in the mean time, I decided to just go and take a few pictures. Wachovia…

Hobbs and I have several paths to choose from when we go for a walk. Actually, I do the choosing, as he will just go wherever I go. 1. The short, we’re in a hurry walk. About 3/4 mile. This is a brisk, 15 minute or less walk. I do this one when I have a lot of other stuff to do, but just want to get him out to stretch his legs.2. The medium or normal walk. This one…

It’s been a long time since I’ve had cause to say that! But, I am glad that it is Friday. My first week back at work was, to say the least, uneventful! Even though the bank (Bank of America) had 3 weeks to prepare for my arrival, the only thing that I had when I arrived was a desk, laptop, and monitor. I have no access to anything. As I cannot log onto the system, there is nothing that I…

Wow! After having 148 consecutive Saturdays, it’s odd that I have to prepare to go to work tomorrow! I kind of feel like this plant! Nah, not really. I’m a bit tired though because I spent the day preparing lunch, dinner, and snacks for myself for the week. Gotta stay on this lifestyle change. I was rather proud of myself in that in the last 2 weeks, I’ve gotten out for some type of exercise 12/14 days. 7 of 7…

When I start back to work on Monday, it will have been 149 days since I have been to work. Being away from work for 5 months has opened new vistas. New ways of thinking. I understand, now, the need for a sabbatical every once in a while. When you are in the heat of the battle, there is little time to think about what you really want to do. I worked so much the last 2 years that I…
