Paean to Webs

Looking back at my unfaithfully maintained and updated Flickr image gallery, first started in 2004 when a blog buddy offered me a free Pro account–there have been quite a few webs to find their way this time of year onto…

The One That Got Away

This was almost a good shot, only five seconds too late. The good one got away. Gandy has calmed down around the chickens. Her first encounters of a former batch in her first year she only delighted in terrorizing through…

Creek Jots 2 August

â–¶ Distracted earlier in the week by the now-pleasant-memory of the Warm Hearth event, the Panasonic Lumix LX7 that came Wednesday has finally had a field trip. I’m a long way from comfortable with this camera, but it’s macro capability…

Streaming the Ordinary: Small Pond Video

Just to indict myself and vindicate the folks at Vimeo, and since the link was not interesting enough to click, pig-in-a-poke, I put up the little garden clip I couldn’t get to work yesterday,. I’d not tweaked a permission in settings…

Aging Gracefully: Old Churches #3

I realize now, as if it mattered, that a better title for this short series of church images would have been “Amazing Grace”, but it is what it is. This shot, like yesterday’s, is not mine. Not exactly. I took…

Falling Waters: Nameless Creek Gorge

Summer’s not the best time to get a feel for any piece of these mountains. So much is hidden behind a wall of green. Even so, I carried the camcorder with me on our walk a bit farther up Nameless…

UnSeasonably Early Webs

We’re promised rain by this evening, so on the off-chance that Lucy the Meteorologist won’t pull the football out just before we put everything we’ve got into that one spectacular game-saving extra point, I’ll not go out after all to…

Baby Henry Update

We are on the move, so not much time for writing before getting on the road again. I’ve had questions from those who remember the events around our grandson, Henry’s birth in September two years ago. How is baby Henry,…

Snowed In ~ But One Escaped

It promises to be a beautiful snow, briefly, after the sun rises and before temps do the same and the winds pick up. We got something like 8″ of powdery snow after expecting WET, and there is a big difference.…

Peaks and Troughs: Alpha-Beta Canine Relations

I apologize to those who have heard enough about our trials and tribulations, our thrills of victory, or the more-common agonies of defeat in the attempt to rear this not-a-labrador-retriever puppy into a beast we want to have with us for…

Another Photog in the First Fam

It’s another one of those mornings when I have a long batting list and not enough time in the game to even have a single at-bat–except to post an image that belongs to my daughter. It was on the strength–literally–of…

Photographer’s Eye

My daughter called from BestBuy in her hometown. She was camera shopping. As in her first serious look at cameras beyond her iPhone. Me, I would research and compare and agonize and second-guess and anguish over such a decision. Not…
