I was just looking back through some of my photos from Raj’s wedding. As a friend, I had the privilege of getting a behind-the-scenes look at the preparation. For the most part his nephew, Sid, helped him to get dressed, getting his hair just right, and whatever else he needed. He was a big help. 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.

Working from home I have a slower connection and smaller monitors, so lower throughput, but people aren’t asking for updates every 10 minutes! Today is one such day. I enjoyed a walk in the brisk morning air. It was about 10° C (48° F), a bit chilly and quite to…

It’s nice outside. The backdoor is open. The iron is heating. It was my intention to grab my pants and shirt, iron them, and continue to get ready to go to work … but, then I looked outside, saw the light shining across the neighbor’s yard and into mine, right through this old bird feeder that now seems to be a haunted house. Redirect! Grab a camera, take some shots, write a short post. This is sure much more fun…
