Easter Eggs

Easter Eggs I just happened to like this intersection of color. These are three Easter eggs that I was getting ready to toss out.  This photo was taken with  Nikon S1 using the internal flash and with Vivid Color mode enabled. Continue reading Easter Eggs

Fireball

I was just taking advantage of the cool evening – sitting in the hot tub and looking at stars – when I saw this incredible fireball arc across the sky. It was white-yellow, blending to a red-orange tail as it streaked. It broke into multiple heads, each glowing with a bright white light, then burned … Continue reading Fireball

Obituary

I’ve always heard some older people say that they first check the obituary section to see if their name is there. If it isn’t, they get on with their day.  So what am I supposed to do today??  Call in dead?   I guess I’ll take the day off.  Here’s the link to the Greenville … Continue reading Obituary

Geotag This!

Any … Continue reading Geotag This!
