Vanessa has shown me a number of wonderful places in her neck of the woods, near Asheville, NC. She’s shown me Linville Caverns, Linville Falls, and Catawba Falls. All of which are now on my list of places to return to with my D700 and my tripod. She loves the outdoors and so knows quite a few places of interest. As I live in the city, here in Charlotte, the views, or things to do on the weekend are a…

The chicks above my door are growing. I’m sure that they’ll be gone soon and I don’t have a really good photo of them just yet. This is the ‘best’ one that I have. I like it because it is somewhat abstract, but shows their activity. Momma comes and feeds them many times per day. She stays quite busy! Whenever I hear them cheeping, I grab my camera, try to get a shot; however, the angle is such that it…

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…

I’ve been to Mexico a few times. I stay in Cancun, many years ago, about a week. I’ve crossed the border a time or two, and I stayed in San Miguel de Allende, back in March. Each time that I went, I knew a tiny bit more of Spanish. For years, I’ve been saying to myself that I was going to learn another language. This year, starting in January, I finally committed to it. I’m learning Spanish, or should I…

As a kid I used to raid my mother’s cupboard and plant all manner of things: beans, popcorn, any type of seed. I just liked to see things grow, I suppose. I decided to plant a few things this year, so I went over to Home Depot, got a little planter box, some soil, and made plans. I told my neighbor, Reesa, about it, and she donated 4 tomato plants. I planted them, along with one cilantro plant, and the…

Vanessa I have a tag, favorites, where I add some of my favorite photos. I’ve not had an obvious favorite in a while, but this one qualifies. Vanessa, my girlfriend, and I spent this past weekend at Seabrook Island, SC. On both Friday and Sunday mornings, we woke up early, went for a walk on the beach to take in the sunrise. We saw a couple of dolphins, some small sharks, and lots of birds. I had taken my Olympus…
