Another best of collection. This time it’s locations. Places. Cities. Nature. Details. As I was reviewing this work, a thought struck me. So much of it is either weather driven or made at the edges of the day. I just don’t take many pictures at high noon. I’ve preached about that enough in the past. Even […]


Not like yesterday. Thankfully. I don’t think I could write about something so tragic. So sad. Again. At least, not two days in a row. So, this second line was small by comparison.

This doesn’t look like the kind of place that I’d use for preparing and paying my taxes. I happened to see it on the way to some place else. I’m always kind of fascinated by these old, run down, beaten up small businesses. It appears that the owner of this place works on taxes every […]
