Dear Canon S90: We had a good run. Thanks for the thousands of photos that you provided during your two years of active service. Now, I send you on a mission, a mission impossible, if you will. You’ll be going to stay with one Mr. Tony Lester. This, my friend, will be an arduous journey, the likes of which you have never experienced. Things will ‘happen’ to you. You’ll start to malfunction for ‘no apparent reason’. You’ll endure scrapes, bruises…

Saturday morning at 2:20 AM, I noticed a different ‘sound’ in the house. Quiet. Gone was the sound of the ear flowing out of the vents, the distant hum of the refrigerator motor, the sound of the movement of the blades of the ceiling fan. All that remained was the sound of crickets from the open window. I awoke to find the house in total darkness. The power had been interrupted. I was without electricity. No mind, it was early…

Now that the weather is cooler, I find myself at Lake Wylie in the evenings. I’ve noticed that there are a lot more people there as well. The bugs are quite under control now. I noticed what I assumed to be a father and his boys fishing along the bank. Well, the father was casting the child-sized fishing pole, then handing it to his son. I stood, watched, photographed, and had memories of my father teaching me to fish as…

Well, if you came here looking for a few leaves changing colors, sorry to disappoint. This is how my hallway looks at the moment. What you cannot see is that around and corner, in the guest bedroom, there is 2 or 3 times as much stuff spread out on the floor! My son, Mr. Tony Lester, as I am wont to call him, is off on another adventure. You may think that I travel a lot, but this guy does…

It has been more than 30 years since I’ve been fishing with my brother. That would put us at about 21 and 34. My brother just celebrated his 64th birthday last week. We’ve been trying to connect with each other when I’ve come to Ohio or he comes to/through North Carolina; however, he’s a busy and and, seemingly, so am I. The last time we attempted to connect was a couple of weeks ago when I was in Texas. He…

Not Tony, but I like the shot anyway. I just finished reading Cedric’s blog post, The chip off the block. In the post he talks about his daughter’s photography and shares his obvious joy about her art as well as well as sharing a few pictures. If you’ve not read it, it’s certainly worth a stop by to read about it. After reading his post, I thought about my two guys. Neither is interested in photography, particularly, or any other…
