Takamine Time…

I’ve been so busy with work and fixing things, not to mention blogging, that I haven’t really paid much attention to my guitar. I like accoustic music. Anything that I can play along with (Yes, I started with Stairway to Heaven and worked up to Dust in the Wind). I just like to play. I […]

Bugs and Things…

I think it’s awesome to get a good picture of a bug. They’re challenging, for the most part, especially the flying insects. I’ve already blogged a bit about bees and I hate to be repetitious but here are some of my favorites although some aren’t really artistic or anything, they’re bugs after all. I found […]

Has Its Thorn…

I believe since I made the post with the giant thorns from the rose bush I decided to post my favorite from when the bush was blooming one cloudy, rainy morning. Somehow makes the pain of being stuck a little worth it when you see this bush bloom. While crawling around the gardern I spied […]

Heron After…

I remember when I first received my new Nikon fresh from eBay I had already set my sights on photographs I would like to take. San Gabriel Park here in Georgetown Texas was home to some Blue Herons that I chased up and down the San Gabriel river trying like crazy to get a good […]

Every Rose…

You know? I noticed our rose bush today and decided to try out a new lens on the thing. There are no roses blooming on it at this point, however, I noticed something intrigueing. The thorns on this thing compare to baby shark teeth! And when I tried to move the vine for a better […]

Imagination…

I remember seeing those clever photographs of trees that when you look closely there are outlines of things or people in them. So today I managed to take a break and look through the myriad of branches of the tree in the front yard and looked for “things”. You know. Like one of those find […]

Austin, Texas…

I really love Austin, Texas, especially downtown. It’s picturesque and the people are amazing! I have to say that the city has its own ‘vibe’. They’ve just completed the Austonian in downtown which is now the tallest building in Austin. I wonder if they let folks up on the top to take pictures or if […]

Hard Drive Space…

Well, I’m behind in the blogging. Partly due to work/home responsibilities and then I’m finding I’m running out of hard drive space for the myriad of photographs (and backups) I take. I have 3 in the PC and 4 external drives for back ups but they’re filling up. Then there is when they go bad. […]

Llano Eagle’s Nest…

I haven’t had a chance to visit the nest this winter …I hear the nest has moved. I’m waiting till I can rent or get my hands on a ‘sharper’ lens. – These are my first attempts at it when the nest was closer to the road. The nest was located down Highway 29 toward […]

Mornings…

Sometimes I like it early in the morning and yet others I just want to get more rest. Some scenes make it worth the getting up. I wonder if the moon was going down this morning or just coming up late. Too tired to pay attention really. Then I started thinking about driveways. The first […]

Early Morning Foggy Traffic…

Slow, yet very busy day. The fog this morning was eerily beautiful with the sun coming up. Now that I’ve seen the morning fog it makes me want to get up earlier and see what I can photograph. Though, I believe I’ll save it for a day off when I’m not so hurried and can […]

Out in the Country…

What a wonderful day this turned out to be! It didn’t start out very well but I decided to just get out and wander. The sun was out and it wasn’t too cold and I just decided to take a county road to see what I could see. I don’t know why it is that […]

Pride in Workmanship…

You know? There is alot of awesome architecture around Austin, Texas and what I guess you would call the “I-35 Corridor. But take a closer look at the photograph below. When I saw this all I could say was “Really?”… I wonder what happened. Either the shorter people called in sick or maybe a shift […]

Acts of Kindness…

I just had to share this story because, well, it just restores my faith in the world. I also just wanted to say God Bless Southwest Airlines for the caliber of pilots and employees they have on their staff. Imagine being a greiving grandfather trying to catch a flight to see your grandson one last […]

Favorite Things…

I know I’m behind but boy can life get busy sometimes. Of course I was struggling with what I could possibly write about and then I remembered an impulse I had. I was in Starbucks (rarely but I treat myself once in awhile) and I saw this coffee cup. I had to have this coffee […]

The Highway…

I realized that in alot of my “drive by shooting” I take alot of photographs of highways. I guess that’s because I’m ‘driving’ at the time I take the picture but something about overpasses and the open road draws me. I have no idea if it has to do with their architecture or design. Or […]

Time…

I can’t help but feel overwhelmed at times with all I’m in to. I mean with work, blahgging (as I call it), photography, and trying to keep up with things. Something went wonky with the blog yesterday. I was receiving this error whenever I tried to upload an image to the ‘blahg’. So I googled […]

I Love Shiney Things…

I was trying to think of what to blog about today and was a little stumped. I see the neighbors are still runinng the sprinkler and turning the tree in their front yard in to an icicle. Well, then WordPress decided it couldn’t resize anything I uploaded so I manually resized it and hopefully can […]

Ice Garden?…

The sun came out today (yay!) and I finally was out and about (meetings and things) and got to play around with the camera a little and I wasn’t sure what I would blog about today until I stumbled upon a curious sight. Seems someone forgot to turn the sprinkler off. But then again, it […]

Drive By Shooting…

I know the title sounds serious…but it’s not really. It’s sort of what I call the photographs I get by not taking the time to stop and really TAKE the picture. I just hang the camera out the window and *click* away. Sometimes I get an interesting sort of something I want to keep kind […]
