Time For Chopping and Splitting Wood :: Friday Feet

That cold-ish time of year has come again, even down here in the south. On Wednesday it was almost 80*F, and now it looks like all that warm air is gone for now. One of the things we love about our house in the winter is our Lopi wood burning stove, but it takes a…

The Most Colorful Macro Flower Edition of Friday Feet

I thought I would make today's Friday Feet the most colorful set of flowers shot in this series. I spent most of the day in blasting 100*F heat cutting acres of dry grass so this was a nice break. The flowers are from the Stephens family from after their service yesterday (see previous post). They…

Atlanta Airport Photos and a 50mm Lens :: ATL-AMS

I have this random series I have done on my blog for years called "airport in 50mm" that looks photographically at a particular airport with just a 50mm lens. I did this for this last trip except for the airport in Entebbe where I wasn't sure if I would get shot by the guy holding…

An Incredible and Indescribable Day in Uganda Today

This day was so packed full but it was such an incredible day I'm not even sure how to describe it yet. I had to post a photo of the traffic because it is the most unreal thing I have ever seen, not even the photo does the slight justice to the actual experience of…

Photos of the 4th of July Fireworks in Auburn

Yes, I know I'm a little late with the fireworks pics but oh well. The fireworks in Auburn were good as always, the only thing that just kills me every year is they don't go high enough in the sky to get up over the power lines, and I have tried different locations every year.…

Testing the Old Oil and Water Theory Close Up :: Photos

Something totally different for today. I thought I would try a little abstract photography last weekend. No special post-processing or photoshop on these images, just a simple mix of oil and water on a red and green flag. I always wanted to try some super closeup shots like this and I could have gotten in…

This Was Kid Weekend on the Farm with the Camera

We had so many different families out on the farm collectively this weekend it was hard to keep track of who was who and what everyone was doing. I know what I was doing, taking the photos. Pictured above is William Fillmer (my grandson), Martha and Abby Marchio (two of my nieces), and Maddie Metteer…

Finally, We Actually Got Some Rain Here in Auburn

We finally finally got some rain down in Auburn. It rained most of Friday and by Saturday morning everything already looked a little greener than it did the day before, and a whole lot cooler than 96*F. Amazing what a little water will do. No, we don't bale hay out here, but the guy down…

4th of July Fireworks Video from Auburn Alabama

Each year we usually go see the fireworks put on by the city of Auburn, and this year they were worth the wait.  I wanted to post a very quick video of the finale, in part for a friend of mine who didn't come out to see the fireworks saying he would prefer to watch…

Bose Great Customer Service on Damaged In-Ear Headphones

Normally I would not just do a post to plug a specific company, unless they had done something really outstanding (or perhaps done something really poorly), which Bose has done now, at least twice.  Way back on November 26th 2008 I bought a pair of Bose TriPort In-Ear Headphones from Best Buy for around $100…
