I Did Have Sunscreen On

April 10, 2012

Last Saturday I rode to Great Falls Park,VA. I had previously only been to the MD side of the falls. It was beautiful and peaceful. I only wish I could have  captured the true size and power of this beautiful river and falls.




Last Sunday I met with some friends from High School, and we rode for miles. On the side of one of the country roads on which we were traveling I saw this:


I wasn’t leading so I didn’t stop, but I did take about 4 picks as we rode by doing about 50. When I got home I blew one up and saw this web address. Turns out what I saw was part of last years Transformers themed corn maze. According to the site they have the largest corn maze in Maryland. “This past years maze was 9.1 miles of trails covering 42 acres.”

I plan to go back and stop to take some better pictures.

I’m a killer. A plant killer…well, I used to be. It was so bad, I actually stopped buying plants because I couldn’t keep them alive. Last night I realized I’ve had my plants for almost 5 years. Happy Birthday my Green Girls!

I’ve been trying to kill the little one on the left for some time, but she keeps on living.

Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-Si-Dos, Trefoils, and Thin Mints (my favorite). If you don’t know, these are a few of the most popular Girl Scout Cookies. Yep, it’s that time of year again. I was lucky. Right across the street lived 3 little girls scouts. Every year they’ed knock on my door and I’d put in an order. Or their mom would call say they had cookies, “What would you like?” Unfortunately, they moved away several years ago so I’ve had to find my cookies elsewhere. It hasn’t always been easy, which is probably a good thing. I went to the grocery store yesterday and the Girl Scouts were selling their cookies out in front. I bought 3 boxes of my favorites. Thin Mints may not make me thin, but it is for a good cause. Right?

Another Sunset Gone

March 8, 2012

I finished up work yesterday at about 1pm and I was going to go out and find something interesting to photograph. Finding the right words when writing is easier if I can also tap into the “1000 words” a photo brings to the mix. And of course, I love photography. I sat down for a second in my “comfy” chair and the next thing I new it was dark. I bolted awake, realized it wasn’t morning, and thought “damn, another sunset gone”.

So…I thought I’d try some night photography. Not my best work, but kind of interesting. This place always reminds me of the Disney Castle at Disney World. I bet it’s also full of interesting characters.
