Happy New Year!

A display in a local grocery store. I don't think there was enough room to spell out "drive safely.". -GS-

First Snow!


And so, Winter starts. I guess we can't complain. Autumn was great and lasted longer than normal. I'll be looking forward to a short Winter. -GS-

First Camera


Well, first adjustable camera. My real first camera was a Kodak Hawkeye box camera like most kids that grew up in that era.

When I was in the 8th grade, my dad Gave me his old Argus C3. It was about as basic as they come, not much more than a light tight box with an adjustable shutter and aperture. No meter. In between each shot you had to wind the film and cock the shutter. Still affectionately referred to as "the brick" by those who recognize it.

This one no longer works. The controls are frozen in place by lubricant that hardened years ago. Too bad. It might have been fun to run a roll of film through it.

It was basic, but it was everything a kid needed to learn about photography. Thanks Dad.

First Day of Autumn


Well, OK, this is an old photo. It's raining today and the leaves are still green. It won't be long before they look like this.

Reflection of a Shadow


Sometimes you just get lucky.  The Sun was streaming through the window at just the right angle. I just happened to be there at the right time.

2010 Lineworker's Rodeo


OPPD hosted the 2010 lineworker's rodeo this year. About 40 teams from all over the country competed in several events that tested their skills. After an early start that included Spring rain, the competition completed under a blanket of clouds.

Levi Carter park near Carter Lake was a great location for the event. Here's the link to more photos: Rodeo Photos

It's Just Not As Sharp These Days!


Simple Story. I slipped on an icy sidewalk. The camera bag broke my fall. This poor lens sacrificed itself to protect me from harm.
