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!

Chet Atkins & Don McLean – Vincent

I saw Chet Atkins many years ago during the Spoleto USA Festival in Charleston, SC. It was like sitting with 1200 friends listening to your favorite uncle tell stories and play guitar. A magical evening.

Now It Means Nothing

In today’s Manchester (NH) Union-Leader: Gore’s Prize: A Fraud on the People.

A taste:

Alfred Nobel felt horrible about the uses to which his invention — dynamite — was put. So he endowed the Nobel Peace Prize and instructed that it go “to the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between the nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.”

Al Gore has done exactly none of those things.

Go and Read for it says what I think.
