Friend of mine back in Nova Scotia tells me a cell phone company wants to set up a tower right behind these churches, located in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. This is truly one of the most iconic view in all of eastern Canada. Imagine what a cell phone tower would do to the beauty of […]

Had a nice cooperative moon and eagle this morning. Afterward, while headed home, an airliner/moon fly by topped off the morning And when you’re watching the moon, you’d better keep your eys out for photos of opportunity! When teh moon hits your eye like a big Pizza pie!

Well, I just renewed the Instapinch for another year. Not certain why. The advance of Facebook and Twitter and other forms of social yakking has really cut into the motivation to keep a blog going. When I retired from the Navy reserves in 2010 that was the first big hit – no more “insider baseball” […]

From the Atlantic City Air Show a few weeks ago. I think this shot could not be much better. Aviation photographers try for a lifetime to nail the timing on this – I managed to suitcase it the first time I ever saw these guys. Pure luck! Indeed, trhough, I did get exactly what I […]
