Happy New Year!

…To all the nice folks that wander through here.

And you spambots, too.

UPDATE: My buddy BobSmith adds in the comments:

Great video: an idea for anyone who’s moved by it. Go to USO.org and donate to Operation Phone Home…every $15 donated buys 45 minutes of phone time for a serviceman/woman. Click on Donate Now on the home page and then Donate to a specific program on the following page.

An excellent suggestion.

Some Black & White Pics

A few weeks ago I went shooting with my honey and a good friend.We went wandering around Old Town Alexandria, Va.

I took my grandfather’s old Leica M3 with my buddy’s new Voightlander 30mm lens.

Shooting film, after years of instant feed-back from digital, forces me to concentrate more on the whole process.

Enjoy:

This last one is the interior of Christ Church. On the left is Geo. Washington’s old family pew and on the altar rail is a brass tag marking where Robert E. Lee was confirmed.

Sorry it’s been light lately. New job, you know.

Now go eat too much!

The Pity Post

I got laid-off from my real world gig last night. It would seem that my years of hustle and experience costs the company just too darned much.
Good luck with those $7 an hour, part-time high school kids, there, boss.
If you’re feeling pity for me, and you aren’t a human if you don’t, click on THIS SITE AND BUY A PHOTO. Actually get something for your money!
Com’on, baby needs a new pair of shoes.

My honey and I have just returned from St. Petersburg, Russia where, after five years of wedded bliss, I’ve finally met my in-laws. They seem to like me. Which is a plus.
After a day or two of decompression I’ll post some pix (together we shot about 34 gigs worth) and some impressions of the country and the people.
