Wrong ball, coach!

If I ever decide to coach the girls sports teams, you can GUARANTEE that I will try something like this.

Bumble and pollen

Bumble and pollen

Here is a bumble bee burying himself in our Hosta flowers. The yellow speckles you see on his abdomen are flecks of pollen.

Taken yesterday with the Sigma 150 mm on a tripod, cropped, lightened post production in Picasa.

Afternoon quench

Afternoon quench

Taken with Sigma 150mm macro lens today on the deck. I've been wanting to take something like this for a while, and I'm pretty happy with the results. This could hang somewhere to give a nice green accent.

That dock

Southwest Harbor dock

This is the Southwest Harbor, ME dock built for the owners of the Western Way Condos.

The Street

The Street

Taken the same evening as this photo. This 15 second exposure captured a windy, rainy evening in Easton, PA as a car drives by. If you look at the little pear tree on the right - doesn't it look like the shadow is a of a man?

Slippery when wet

Slippery when wet, originally uploaded by -SPK.

The unfortunate driver of this Jeep struck a fire hydrant exactly 8 years ago today. I was an EMT/Firefighter in Warren Township NJ at the time.

The red shale you see in the foreground was strewn there from the water after the hydrant exploded. It was a classic "water in the air" shot. (but too dark for a good photo)

Posted for my favorite website: Slippery When Wet.

Love you Homer!

I wish I could remember when little things like playing in the sand made me so happy. (ok, they still do)

This is Kaitlyn (I call her Kaiteybird for some unknown reason - but I have a nickname for everyone, why should she be any different?) enjoying a trip to Acadia.


Not sure how jkirlin and I started commenting on each other's blogs, but it was fate.

This handsome, talented, funny, photo blogger and jkirlin (you didn't think I was talking about him, did you?) met on our vacation to Maine last week.

Jeff is a "A nosey, over-enthusiastic, curious, adventurous Photowhore...... Will whore for comments, photocredits, faint praise, loose change or what-have-you." kind of guy.

We had lunch, talked about all of you and looked at the people who were lucky enough to walk by us. Sadly enough, I actually had a good time.

Here is Jeff's version of our meeting. And don't believe anything he tells you, he lies.

Face Blindness (Prosogagnosia): Explained with rocks, very interesting page from someone with face blindness

I read this entire web site tonight. It's really fascinating.

I wouldn't go THAT far

But I do love me some D&D. I call it the nector of the gods. Is that wrong?
