Flowers in My Neighborhood, 2017 Edition
Posted on August 15, 2017 2 Comments
My wife and I went for a quick walk around the neighborhood, and I brought the camera along. There were a lot of bugs flying around. Just like in previous years, here are some of the shots I took of the flowers around my neighborhood.
Hail to the Bees

When I was a child, I was always afraid of bees and other insects. You can thank the fire ants in Chihuahua for that.

My wife and I escaped Phoenix for a couple of days and went up to the Grand Canyon. We had never been there. It was pretty awesome. (I’ve seen the Copper Canyon in Mexico, which is bigger, but different.) We took some pictures. Most were taken by her, though.

Another year, another ten thousand photographs. Seriously, I took that many. Between my iPhone, my DSLR and my mirrorless (the same little camera that traveled with me to Colombia), I took about ten thousand photographs. Not all of them were good. Maybe one or two were great. However, there were several that are my favorites […]

After having no luck in finding a sunflower patch near my house, I drove down to the Virginia-Maryland line (aka the Potomac River) and found one in a park. The owners set it up for people to go to, but they also did it so that birds would be attracted to the area… So the […]
Up in a high place
Posted on July 14, 2016
The first time I went to High Rock was when I first moved to south-central Pennsylvania in 2000. I was a stranger in a strange land, but sitting atop that high place allowed me to see that it was not much different than other places I’ve been to. It was very green, yes, but the […]
