Dispatches From Dublin

Wow, it’s been nearly a month since my last update!  The main reason for this post is that I’ve completed my photos from Dublin, but I realize for anyone who doesn’t check Facebook, you may not know I ever got back!  It was a … Read More

Extended Stays

So, last Friday was my final day at Equifax.  I’ll still be back and forth to Atlanta for a bit until I move my stuff in storage and won’t entirely cut ties until I manage to sell my house, but soon, I’ll get to … Read More

Life is a State of Mind

I guess you could say a fair bit has been going on in my life this year.  After a decade working with the same company, I’ve decided to cut ties and try something new.  When I figure out what that is, I’ll let you … Read More

Back To Nowhere

Ah, about to head off to another anonymous island in Lake Nicaragua.  After Ometepe, I think I´m over the middle of nowhere now, but maybe this stop will surprise me and be stellar.  But after getting into Granada and getting to be in an … Read More

On The Horizon

I’m still working on photos from England in September and my next trip is literally on the horizon.  I’ll be in Costa Rica just a few days after Christmas, and in Nicaragua when the New Year rolls around.  I’ll accumulate more photos, so I … Read More

Is It Midnight?

Okay, for weeks, I’ve been hating how dark it was in the morning.  The late sunrise made it seem even harder to rise and shine.  Okay, I never shine, but I do rise.  Now the sun is going down too early.  There is no … Read More

Where Lands End

Day 3 in the UK.  I wandered a lot my first afternoon. Bright and early the next morning was my meeting with the Haggis Tour bus for my Cornwall tour.  It’s a relatively small group of 10, which I think is fairly good as … Read More

Trip More Or Less Sorted

All in all, when I travel, I like to stay in a given place a few days.  Much of my selection of the Intrepid trip I chose to Egypt earlier this year was that every night was not a different city.  If I had … Read More

Adobe’s Customer Service Grade

A few weeks ago, I got a macbook pro, as previously mentioned, and partially left the world of windows (my media center PC is still a PC).  I found out (before I made the switch) that Adobe will allow you to swamp from windows … Read More

Doing It The Hard Way

This past Saturday was the first time in ages that I’ve gotten out with my camera.  It really has been that long.  I came back from Egypt and less than a month later made a quick weekend dash to Boston as part of a … Read More

Coming Together

The past few weeks have been busy as usual. Work has been demanding of late, and I’ve been trying to get ready for a photo show that was on Friday. It was one of those things I kept meaning to put out there for … Read More

Coolness! This evening I discovered that I came in first in a Lonely Planet photo challenge on flickr. It’s a weekly thing where they give out a theme and you can submit photos to the theme. This past week’s was “Most High” and my … Read More

End Of Morning

Alas, the end of the sunrise hot air balloon photos shuffles to an end. The flight was a bit over an hour. I took a 100 pictures in the first maybe 20 minutes and then I sort of relaxed and just soaked it in. … Read More

On This Day in 1903

One hundred and five years ago, my grandmother was born in the tiny community of Midway, Alabama. She was the eldest child of Joseph & Gertha Johnston, and was born at the home of her grandparents, Proctor & Lula Johns. My grandmother, who I … Read More

Random Inspiration

It’s very interesting where we find inspiration sometimes. For a few years now, I’ve been a casual reader of Wil Wheaton’s blog.  Yes, Wil Wheaton AKA Wesley Crusher of Star Trek.  For one reason or another, I relate to some of the things he … Read More

All Those Camel Jockeys

My camel guide, bless him for his patience, was maybe not the best photographer. He had the right idea, but everyone of my group pictures have something that is, for me, a glaring flaw. Most of them, he stood behind another guy taking pictures. … Read More

Shadows on the Sahara

It seems hard to believe my trip to Egypt ended over a month ago, but that was January and even February is speeding to a conclusion. Where does time go? I’ve been busy with work lately. And when not busy with work, doing some … Read More

Pyramids – As Seen on TV

I’m slowly getting over the crud, but Friday heading for Boston (business meeting Monday that I was able to roll into some me time).  So, I’m at a standstill for the moment on editing photos. However, there are plenty of the pyramids and a … Read More

Not So Exotic Bugs

The last few days in Egypt, I had a cough, which was particularly rough when we got back to the smog of Cairo. I thought the smog was what started things, but as I looked back, it started before we returned to Cairo. Still, … Read More

Balloons and Donkeys

Not so bright but early start to the morning.  Went with Sam and a few others for late dinner last night.  Neat place, not so touristy.  Had Koshary again.  So, got in aroun 11pm which wasn’t so bright for an early start.  Had to … Read More

Art Show & Recap

Fàilte! Time is just flying by day by day, here. Thanksgiving came and went. I felt like I spent a chunk of it back and forth between here and home. The photo show was Friday night. I would have loved to have been there, … Read More

North Georgia Amble

I had grand plans today to get an early start and ride up to the mountains and catch the sunrise on what I hoped would be some good fall color. What actually happened was waking up to see the sun already having risen. Hmm… … Read More

DragonCon X

In honor of what would have been my 10th consecutive DragonCon. I’m not heart broken at having missed it. If I had wanted to go bad enough, I would have delayed surgery on my foot. I wasn’t excited about going this year and had … Read More
