I’m going through my pictures of Paris. I’ve pulled out a few here. In looking at them, I thought: Were it not for the Eiffel Tower, you’d never have a clue, other than the title, of where these were taken … and I’m very much OK with that. I spent my first full day in France in the 19th arrondissement. Paris is divided into 20 sections calledĀ arrondissements. The 19th, kind of on the outskirts, is fairly far away from any…

It seems to happen quite often, I’m about to take a picture, and the intended subject looks up and changes the whole situation. The same thing happened here. This is Rebecca, a fellow student in my Spanish class in San Miguel. Rebecca happens to be from Akron, OH, as well – my birthplace. As you can see, she’s quite a bit younger than I, so we never crossed paths in our hometown. I was in the Jardin on Halloween, taking…

I must give credit where credit is due. Debra is my Internet guru. She scouts the Internet to see how my site is being received, so to speak. She found that the article that I wrote nearly 4 years ago is getting top honors on Google and today she found an article on WikiHow on how to take basketball photos. As she sat and read it aloud, she said: Wow! This sounds a lot like your article, paraphrased, but a…

Nature adds her own colors Tom Dills, Michael Williamson, and I went shooting this morning. We planned it over the past couple of weeks. During the exchange of e-mails, Tom added a couple of his friends. One of them, Donald Brown, whose blog can be found here, looked familiar, but I couldn’t quite place his face. Oh well, I thought, mistaken identity. The more that I thought of it, more the more that it plagued me. I really did know…

L-R: Bill, Robert, Jim, and Paul It is really amazing, to me, how we can not see someone for a really long time, say about 30 years, and just pick right up where we left off. This weekend, I am in Akron, Ohio, doing my yearly visit. Thanks to Facebook, Jim saw my post about visiting and rallied the troops together so that we could have a small reunion. I didn’t go to high school with these guys, but did…

As seen at lunch time today on the corner of Trade & Tryon in Charlotte, NC. An interesting way to advertise, but it still doesn’t make me want to be a vegan! However you have to give them credit for original advertisement effort, I suppose. The sign says: Don’t jiggle when you wiggle. Go Vegan! PeTA One thing’s for sure: There’s always something interesting going on at Trade & Tryon, smack in the center of the city!
