Litchfield Beach Sunday Morning Walk

leave a comment »

Mattie and I go for a walk on the beach every morning. The tropical storm off the coast cleared out last night, and it was a beautiful morning. Here are some photos from our walk. All photos were shot with the Olympus E-3.

More Litchfield Beach

I finished my fourth book this week. It’s a book about a dog and the title is From Baghdad, With Love by Lieutenant Colonel Jay Kopelman. Since I’ve read three books about dogs this week, I thought I post a second round of photos leading off with a golden.

Litchfield Beach

leave a comment »

It’s Friday of our first week at Litchfield Beach. This is my favorite place. 

I’ve already read three books; The Legal Limit by Martin Clark, The Art Of Racing In The Rain by Garth Stein and Rescuing Sprite by Mark R. Levin. Judge Clark’s book (BTW we were in high school together at PCHS) is an outstanding read. It was difficult to put the book down. Anyone who has every befriended a dog would enjoy Rescuing Sprite and The Art Of Racing In The Rain. If you don’t laugh out loud and cry while reading Garth Stein’s book you must have stone cold emotions. It is written from a dog’s perspective. I really miss Lucy and Leo now. I read about half of another book and was bored and quit. I’ll leave it nameless. It’s now time to go back to Litchfield Books.

Other than that, I have been eating, sleeping and listening to podcasts on my ipod. Shrimp and grits, crap cakes with some kind of wonderful sauce, grouper with three peppercorn sauce and creek shrimp have been some of the main courses at dinner and there has been eggs benedict every morning at Eggs Up Grill. 

I’ve shot about five cards of photos while here but have only loaded one card on my laptop. Here’s a few, and I did some funky stuff to the last one just for fun. The first one was actually shot in Charleston. All of these photos were shot with Olympus cameras.

PAW Week 18

leave a comment »


I found this young lady in uptown Martinsville. Oddly enough she looks like someone I know.

PAW is a project to shoot a roll of film each week and post a photo. This was shot with a Leica M4-P.

PAW Week 17

Here I am again two weeks behind on posting a PAW. 

We went to the new Nationals stadium a couple of weekends ago. The stadium is beautiful and the electronic scoreboard is as big as I’ve seen anywhere. There’s nothing else quite like a day at the ballpark. As I have said in previous posts, I love baseball. 

One of the things I love about baseball is the bag of peanuts I always get. My seat will always be surrounded by shells no later than the second inning.  By the seventh inning stretch, it’s time for nachos. Somewhere between there might even be a hot dog. I always feel like I ought to leave someone a tip for having to clean up after me.

For the past several years, I have been in a fantasy baseball league with my son and his friends. This year they were all too busy to play. Last season, the final thing I’d do before going to bed would be to check my batting average, home runs, ERA and all the other stats. I knew the names and stats of nearly every player in the league, because I was constantly searching for players to help my team. There’s always next year. 

PAW is a continuing project to shoot one roll of film per week and post a photo. This photo was taken with a Leica M4-P.
