A Photo Day at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson Airport

Delta Airlines on Arrival

Like most people in my surrounding area, I have been to this airport so many times, but most of the time it’s been rushed and hectic. I finally had a day planned to just go and do some photography in and around the airport. If you are new to this site or my photography, I…

An Auburn Alley or Two

As of late I seem to be going from one day shooting thousands of images of an event to shooting almost nothing. Shooting nothing serious for days drives me nuts. But those are the times I try to get out of my comfort zone, slow down, and tackle subjects that have no deadlines, that interest…

This was Someday Saturday Today with Pine Needles

I really hate "someday," because usually, someday is just no-day. That usually ends up being my answer when I don't want to do something, or can just put it off to some unknown time in the future that may or may not ever come. This is why people create bucket lists, so some day doesn't turn…

Hand Made Smocked Clothes and Gowns for Preemie or Premature Babies

This is slightly off-topic for my blog (hence my need and reason for having a Sidenotes Category), but well worth some publicity to lovingly brag on my wife, Deborah. In case you didn't know, Deborah is about the best seamstress I know (just check out her blog or her custom made items on the Etsy store), and…

Lent Has Brought Us To This Maundy Thursday Prayer

Every year, on this day, Maundy Thursday, we come to the Lord in prayer, as Jesus did with his disciples in the Garden of Gethsemane. On that night, Jesus asked his disciples to watch and pray... because our spirit is willing, but our flesh is weak (Matthew 26:36-46), and then Jesus was betrayed by one…

Trying to Remember the Why in the Go in the Middle of Life

The last few days has really kicked me in the back side, and I know it's just because I'm just trying to get too much done before I leave. That time is gone now since there is no time left, but packing all this stuff reminded me of the why in the go. I get…

Understanding Exposure is More than Just Point and Shoot

I thought I would do a little photography 101 slash book review for this Saturday's post. Only one more week before Auburn opens the 2011 football season so today is sort of the last "free" day before the fall goes into full swing, so to speak. The changes in photography over the last 10-15 years…

Amsterdam Airport Photos and a 50mm Lens :: AMS-EBB

This is a continuation of my series, airports and a 50mm lens. Since I was in Europe this time I didn't really get quite a much material as I normally do in a place like Atlanta. For one thing, once I get outside the United States shooting [photos] in an airport isn't quite the same.…

Cultural Priorities and the Breakneck Speed of the West

I love this shot of Jason, Eddie (our driver in Uganda), and myself. If you are holding a machete in the middle of the woods-jungle I think it's a rule, you have to stop to have a photo taken. Jason and I were attempting to clear a few branches away for a lady who lived…

Don’t Worry the Revival is Canceled on Church Signs of the Week

It's Friday, and since we didn't go anywhere exciting today other than to drive over to Columbus, my Friday Feet pic is rather boring, but there were some "great" church signs along the way as usual. I have a pretty additive habit-hobby of church sign reading, sometimes it's just like train wreck TV, you just…
