Look Down

I came across this shot accidentally today; it’s from nine years ago (wow, time flies!). This is from before I owned a DSLR, but it still makes my head spin a little when I look at it, as I’m not a big fan of high places. From one hot air balloon to another, the perspective […]

Sinew and Wood

Typically when I take a photo at a museum, I’ll also take a shot of the placard describing the exhibit. Not so for this ten-stringed instrument… but I love the intricate woodwork, so I decided to share it anyways.  

Happy Halloween, 2014

  For the second year in a row, I took pictures at this year’s Halloween party for the kids of my coworkers. For the second year in a row, I’ve been graciously allowed to share some of those photos with you. Here’s a little strawberry. So cute!   Part of what makes the day a […]

New Mexico Road

I have posted other photos from New Mexico, as I have family there and find my way there more than anywhere else I travel. This was from a trip to the Land of Enchantment in March, and I went for a six mile run outside of Taos. As you can see, I pretty much had […]

Went for a run

I typically keep running related blog posts on my running blog, but I do also take pictures while I’m running from time to time. Pull out the phone and snap away, essentially. This one shows a pretty significant milestone for me. That covered bridge at the end of the road, just about a tenth of […]

Where y’all from?

You know how some tourist spots have a map and invite people to pin where they’re from? This one ran out of pins… so if you look closely, you’ll see pin-holes in the map where people took someone else’s pin and moved it to their home tow. So how about it? Where are YOU from? […]

The Face of a Queen

This sculpture is made from yellow Jasper, some time during the 18th dynasty (Egypt), during the reign of Akhenaten (1353 to 1336 B.C.). It’s on display at the Met in New York, part of a very nice Egyptian collection. Worth the trip.

Jonas the Chicken

This is Jonas – a Speckled Sussex chicken. The building behind her is her chicken coop.  

Misty Morning at Beaver Lake

I stopped at Beaver Lake one recent foggy morning to take some photos. Here are a few  of my favorites.
