Yesterday morning, as is my habit every morning, I looked out of the window into the backyard. I noticed this hawk camped out on the fence enjoying a few tasty bits of what looked like a mouse. He was very vigilant. He’d shred a bit, eat it, have a look around, then repeat. I guess that he knew that even though he’s a predator, there are others higher up the food chain than he! 😀 I went and got my Nikon…

Saturday morning, around a little after 7:00 AM, I spent about 30 minutes sitting on a boat ramp near the edge of the water, watching the sunrise. It was quite, cool, peaceful, orange … perfect.

Ping! Ping! PingPingPing! Ring! Ping!Ping! “I see that you’re in a meeting or are busy, but can you IM right now?” Ping – The sound that the computer makes when someone is trying to send you a Microsoft Office Communicator Instant Message, or IM, as we call it.

After reading comments I thought: Certainly, this could be pilot error; after all, I would…

Tombstone, AZ As I review my photos, I get a laugh sometimes. Before I went to Arizona, I got into the same ‘conversation’ in my head about which camera to take. Finally, I squashed all of that chatter and decided to take the Nikon P-510 and my Olympus 35 LC, a circa 1967 film rangefinder and that’s what I did.
