Pic o’the Day 30 – Self Portrait

January 30th, 2012 · 1 Comment · Pic o'the Day

Haven’t done any self-portraits for a while so I played around a bit while driving home.  No worries…I had both hands on the wheel.  Most of the time.  Might try one with the wide angle lens tomorrow – this was with the regular ol’ 18-55mm lens. I don’t *usually* look that grumpy.  Not having fun […]

The elixir of life…these days.  A hot cup’o joe in my HS memorabilia mug – London Central High School in High Wycombe, England, currently being torn down and turned into a bunch of high-priced condos.  Bites. 26 Jan, 2012

Pic o’the Day 16 – Rolling In

January 16th, 2012 · No Comments · Pic o'the Day

A challenge is to try and get a good picture of a seagull.  They are like…everywhere and just aren’t very photographic in the traditional sense.  I was watching for an eagle I saw down by the waterfront yesterday (classic rookie photog mistake – left my memory card in the card reader back in my room…ugh) […]

Pic o’the Day 3…Boxercat

January 3rd, 2012 · No Comments · Pic o'the Day

This one sucks, I know, but I was in bed, with lunesta coursing through my veins, and realized if I didn’t get my rear in  gear and get *some* sort of pic today, credibility would be a smokin’ hole. Boxercat wanting another treat when he has already had his bedtime treat.  Cats…*sigh* Number 3…yay!   […]

Daily Photo – Day 342, Sucker Hole

December 8th, 2009 · 9 Comments · Pic o'the Day

Woke up this morning to this big ol’ hole in the clouds. Ozone hole? Global warming “Hide the Decline” hole? Naw. Just a sucker hole in the clouds. What is a “sucker hole”? My dad has a great story about one in Vietnam. He and a couple other Skyhawk bomber buddies from the ship were […]

Daily Pic – Day 301, Desk Stuff

October 28th, 2009 · 12 Comments · Pic o'the Day

“Stuff” the Mrs Pinch doesn’t want hanging around the house ends up on my desk at work.  I don’t know why…all I know is that she lacks a certain appreciation of the more…shall we say…important things in life. From left…a tube of chaff, a 20mm practice round,6 various sized F-14 models, a foot-long piece of […]

Daily Pic – Day 291, Squirtle

October 17th, 2009 · 2 Comments · Pic o'the Day

We have 3 cats.  Squirt, Boxer and Fizzbit (no, I didn’t name them.  If I had, they’d be named Rambo, Maverick and The Poop Machine). Squirt, aka Rambo, is the crazy one.  Sweet as honey one minute, but as soon as you say “Ok cat, you need to get off my lap” he’ll turn into […]

If I could have set up the tripod I could have gotten a better one, but was only able to snatch this one.  USS Dwight D Eisenhower with moon, early this morning.
