OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This morning I decided to hang out in the backyard for a bit, taking a few photos when I remembered that there are grapes along my neighbor’s fence. Before I started photographing them, I had to have a taste. It was good! Instantly, from that single taste, I was transported back to childhood, remembering when my friends and I would be in competition with the birds to see who could eat all of the grapes off of the vines. I…

For the most part, I come out of the house at around 6:00 – 6:30 AM, or so, go for my walk, and want to be back in by 8:30 at the latest.

It was fun watching Raj prepare for the wedding, get immigration papers ready, give directions to friends and relatives, etc. Normally, he’s pretty quiet –…

On another one my posts, Chuck said: Paul, because I carry ONLY my latest P/S Canon sx280HS, I am traveling light yet have many options. Took 4,000 shots in 18 days in Portugal and Spain. Have spent more than 18 days at the computer – so far – making selected shot exactly how I pictured them when I pushed the shutter. ~Combat Chuck My reply to that, before looking at the actual number, was that I doubt that I would…

This toadstool was positioned so perfectly in the sun that I don’t think that I would have been surprised to see a toad lounging, taking in the morning rays, but unfortunately, there was no toad. 🙂
