From the 13th floor, if I look west (to my right), I can see BB&T Stadium, new home of the Charlotte Knights minor league baseball team. I hadn’t realized that it was so close to where I worked. On Tuesday, I decided to go for a walk during lunch. It was a beautiful day, about 80 degrees or so. As I headed towards BB&T Stadium, I had to pass through a park that I didn’t even know existed. The name…

Yesterday, as I was browsing through my Lightroom catalog, looking at photos from different times, different subjects, I noticed how the number of photos that I take per year varies greatly. For example, in 2010, the number is 1789, while in 2012, 8427. The number of photos varies according to time constraints, mood, and even stress levels. Yet, the relationship remains a solid one. I remember when I first started photographing when I was about 17 or 18, I believe…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So, here we are, spinning at just over 1,000 MPH, circling the sun at some 67,000 MPH, our whole solar system circling the center of The Milky Way at 559,234 MPH, and finally, our galaxy moving through the universe at some breakneck speed of 1,342,161 MPH. Say what??? Let’s just say that we’re not standing still!!! Don’t believe me? Ask an astrophysicist! It’s quiet obvious to anyone who points a camera skyward and makes an exposure longer than a few…

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been able to accomplish a couple of things in the morning simultaneously. I’m able to have a walk that looks quite impressive because of the copious amounts of sweat that my body sheds, even though it may only be 68 degrees, as well as moisturizing my skin. The humidity level has been frequently in the mid to high 90% level! I’ve enjoyed going to the dam, too, now that I know where it is…

I’ve always had a thing for cone flowers. So, last year, I bought some, planted them in the backyard, and this year, they have returned and are quite showy. I used to have to drive to enjoy them in other gardens, now they are just a few steps away. I enjoy looking at them every morning. The other day, I decided to go out and take a few portraits. I’m no gardener, for sure, but theses plants are hardy and…

I have to say, after reading this story, I am impressed by this young man’s restraint and foreword thinking when this lunatic woman attacked him on the beach for exercising his 1st Amendment rights of self expression. Yes. He was taking photos! Imagine that. She called 911 three times, and, when they didn’t show up – because he was doing nothing illegal, she decided to attack him and teach him a lesson about taking pitchers of people in public. She…
