OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My friend, and fellow blogger, Tom Dills came up with an idea that he wanted to try. He wanted to catch the Lynx light rail here in Charlotte, exit at each stop, take a few pictures, and then resume the journey. We’d tried to do this some weeks earlier, but couldn’t arrange our schedules. On Saturday, we got the chance. So, Tom, Don Brown, another one of our photographer buddies, and I got together, boarded the train, and set off…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I was going through some of my pictures, thinking about how I felt during the time that I was taking them. I have been places by myself and sometimes felt quite lonely – mind you, alone is a fact, loneliness is a state of mind. This time, as I walked through the desert, spent time reading, sleeping, walking, or perhaps doing nothing, I didn’t feel lonely at all … not one bit. I was great company to myself. I liked…

Well, I probably didn’t get the kind of looks that these guys did, after all, I didn’t have on a kilt, but … Last night I stayed a work a little bit late (late for me, that is). An architectural photographer had been in the area all day, taking pictures of the office space, of execs, etc. Well, a little after 6:00 PM, most everyone had cleared out except for the photographer, the lady who’d been helping him all day…

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…
