Black Beauty




I have an acoustic guitar and this black beauty. I have played the acoustic for many years, but with injured arthritic hands it has become harder to play the acoustic. So I have changed over to quietly playing this baby.

I am not a professional. I just like playing around with them; for a few friends and family. Moving from the acoustic to the electric model is like going from cutting hard butter sticks to running a knife through soft whipped butter. It is just a lot easier to play, and I just do not want to stop playing anytime soon... 🎸

Waiting Room Exit




How many times has a coat been left behind hanging on a rack right next to the exit door?

One White Shoe




My photography motto is this, "If you are not looking you will never see." This photo is a good example.

Taken several years ago on Baltimore street in Cumberland, MD, this young couple was sitting there talking and suddenly the Sun light broke through highlighting the one white shoe on the young ladies foot.

I already had my camera out looking for photo ops and when I saw them I raised my camera, focused on them and captured this once in a lifetime- non posed - image.

Right after taking this photo the couple got up and walked away. Just think, if I had not been practicing my own motto I would not have seen this setting or documented the "One white shoe".

It pays to be looking or you will never see and capture that never to be seen moment again...

Washington’s Headquarters




Rebuilt with materials mostly from the original log cabin, this is the building that George Washington used at Fort Cumberland in Western Maryland during the French and Indian war when George was on the staff of General Braddock of the British Army.

As a retrospect I gave this image a vintage look...

Waiting - How Did We Do It?




Back when there were no cell phones, how did anyone ever make it through the stress of sitting in a waiting room?

Wet Snow In The Hood



I do enjoy seeing wet snow that sticks to everything. It is quite beautiful, especially when it sticks to everything but the roads... 😉

A Foggy Snowy Sunday Morning



A light but wet snow came down on Saturday night and the next morning there was early fog. The mixture made for a soft but interesting Sunday morning view outside my home...

Night Light




Even on an overcast and rainy day my backyard night light soaked up enough energy to light up for awhile this evening...

Wall Art



When I am in a waiting room I like to check out the wall art.

I have no idea what is this art, but it sure was interesting...

Letting It Rest




Sometimes you just have to lay the camera down and pick up some reading material.

Of course it just so happens that my reading selection is a photography magazine.

Or a book on Ashby's Cavalry or better know as the Laurel Brigade. My great-grandfather was a member of Co. B Eleventh VA Cavalry which was a division of the Laurel Brigade... 🤔

Color of Winter #4


Determined Dandelion



Went for a short walk yesterday. It is Winter, temperature in the 20's, and we just got 4 to 5 inches of new snow the day before.

Alongside the road was this small site, bare of snow, and in the middle of it was this Dandelion, bright yellow, smiling and looking very determined to stand out in a field of white.

Yes, it is a Dandelion, but it is a color of Winter moment...

Color of Winter #3





Even when the snow comes down you do not have to take photos without color.

Look around for color of anything and then see how you can incorporate it into your photo.

If there is too much distracting background then move in to get closer to the color to photograph it as it mixes with the snow, and show them both as they relate to each other.

Now you, too, have a color of Winter snow photograph...

Color Of Winter #2

Welcome - On a foggy Winters morning...



Snow is not needed for a good color of Winter photo. Here, on a foggy Winter's morning the Welcome sign is out with Winter toys waiting for use.

I love the colors that foggy mornings can provide...

Anniversary Of When We First Met


51 years...



Fifty one years ago, on January 3, 1969, I was introduced to Mary for the first time; on the first day of work at a new job.

Sixty five days later we were married, and have been happily so and deeply in love ever since.

Mary truly is a dream come true. With her at my side I am greatly blessed by God...

Dark Past and Future Path




As the past begins to grow darker, the light of the future begins to become brighter.

Soon the future will become bright enough for me to be able to see clearly the path that has been laid out for me to follow...
