Schools out. The kids have waited for this time probably since starting school late last August. The school bus stops are empty. The streets are quiet, now. The smell of diesel fuel from the school buses no longer permeates the air. I don’t miss it. While working from home, I can hear their voices build as the morning goes on. Around 10:00 AM, they start to appear outside, ready to play the day away. It brings back memories of the…

Lord willing and the creek don’t rise … I’ll be in Sydney, Australia on July 15th. My flight leaves on Wednesday evening, going to San Francisco. I leave there Wednesday evening, have a 14 hour flight, and arrive in Sydney on Friday morning at 6:00 AM thanks to a 14 hour time difference between there and Charlotte, 17 hours difference between Sydney and San Francisco. On the way back, I leave on Saturday and arrive here on Saturday, quite jet…

I say that if I let Hobbs stop and smell everything that he wanted to smell, we’d never complete our 90 minute walk in less than, say 600 minutes! Today, there was just something about the light that was very appealing. So, our normal 90 minute walk took about 2 hours almost … and it wasn’t Hobbs’ fault. The blame rests squarely with me.

While Chris consulted his iPhone for something, I took a moment to take this photo. Chris is an interesting guy and can talk, in depth, on a number of subjects. I particularly enjoyed when he talked about the ins and outs of his work, trying…

When I arrived in Pittsburgh, Chris and I talked about all manner of things photographic. As Chris is very well traveled, he spoke of some of the places that he has been and of the different cuisines that he has sampled, noting that each area and culture had their certain dish that one might find memorable. Naturally, I wanted to know about Pittsburgh. He started this topic to, in effect, warn me that Pittsburgh had no such food items. I…

Not a bad iPhone camera shot! In honor of springtime, I thought that I’d do a cleaning up around the place and change the theme. In visiting the blogs of my various blog buddies, I have really come to like the posts summary style of blog, similar to what you see here. The new theme is Suffusion and it has about 18 bizillion ways to configure it, so, over the coming days, or weeks, as I have time, I will…
