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. Multitasking – Well, you know what that is – being in a meeting and doing other things – in other words, not paying attention to the meeting because you have too much…

This weekend, Michael, a fellow photographer, went out to take photos of Spider Lilies. While we were out, we met a guy named Larry. Larry was new to photography and he and I started chatting about places to go shoot. He told me about the Lake Wylie Dam, in Fort Mill, SC, which is not very far from my house … about 15 minutes I found out … eventually. I’d never been to the dam before, so I asked for…

The cool thing about the Internet and blogging in general is that there are always voices out there that will challenge you. Here, thankfully, is no different. In my post yesterday about the P510 and printing above a certain size, I made an assertion that one would get crappy output above 8 x 10, perhaps; however, that was a faulty assertion, I have found out. 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. The main reason was because of portability and the low hassle factor. At no point did I regret the decision…

This weekend, I took a quick trip down to Charleston with my friend James. Sometimes, I miss Charleston, especially the beach. Though I’ll be the first to tell you that I’m not a beach fan, I do miss the beach in the winter and late fall when the population has fallen drastically and the breeze is cool, rather than warm and humid. James and I spent most of the day Saturday in downtown, walking, looking around, and finally stopping for…

Yesterday was the World Wide Photo Walk. I had planned to go to Charleston, but decided to give the knee a rest, which by the way, it is doing quite excellent now! I’d say we are back to 90% and I will attend a Tai Chi class this week, but will still take it easy. As a matter of fact, Hobbs and I went for a very short walk on Friday, and I went for another one yesterday! Almost back…
