A frightening image.

(Translated from Spanish) Man: So, are you Cuban or Puerto Rican? Me: Neither. I’m from The United States (note, not Americano, but Estadounidense because all of North and South America are Americans). Man: I thought you were Cuban or Puerto Rican because of the color of your skin. Me: Thinking … and probably because of my killer Spanish skills! Ha! Vanessa and I were in a museum in Guanajuato, Mexico when this conversation took place. This was a nice, elderly…

Enjoy your weekend and practice using your tripod. Advanced students may mount the camera and use a long cable release. Enough said!

No. This is not a scene from Times Square in NYC, though I can see how you might confuse it as such! This is a scene from Marion, NC where Vanessa and I watched The Nugget descend from the heights, or maybe ‘mediums’, just above the tent as Marion, NC rang in the New Year.

You’ll start to malfunction for ‘no apparent reason’. You’ll endure scrapes, bruises…

I had my camera mounted, taking time exposures of the water within the marsh reeds. Suddenly, smile came across my face and a laugh escaped.
