1-5345 Civil War memorial Watertown

Feb 3, 2012 Unlike the last post named Watertown, this one really has photos of Watertown in it. Friday we did what we call a “pack & wrap” at work.  Nothing else was left to do & we got out early.  I had the car for the rest of the day so I decided to …

Actually none of these photos show Watertown, NY, only places near there.  I’ve been here in Watertown since January 22.  The weather has been snow, lake effect snow, & rain.  If none of these its been overcast.  I’ve seen blue skies twice, and only part of the sky for only a short time. On Saturday, …

34-5113 Lucy in Disguise

This is the 2nd post from my January 14 sight seeing trip to Austin, and the 3rd post about Austin so far.  It is an interesting place, and all I think I’ve done is scratch the surface.  Many of the photos here are just placement shots to get a feel for the town. Once Jonathan, …

1-5006 Goddess of Liberty Texas Capitol Bldg

This will be the first of at least two more posts of my visit to Austin, Texas.  This visit was on Saturday January 14, 2012. I got to Jonathan & Rebecca’s place early.  Rebecca’s sister lives in Austin and their mother was driving down from Dallas later on so we had plans to get together …

11-UT Tower 4947

January 7, 2012   January 7 turned out to be a warm, clear day in Austin.  It reminded me of Southern California after the Santa Ana winds have left & the smog begins to return.  The day was reserved for visiting and some sight seeing. I asked Jonathan to show me the McCombs School of …

1-4660 Monument to Cabrillo

I think this post will have some better photos than the previous post.  I doubt if many will make it into print, but I think you will find some of them visually pleasing.  These were all shot Dec. 21, 2011. Our first stop the next morning after our trip to Balboa Park was the Point …

2-4598 California tower from Alcazar garden

Time and events have gotten away from me.  In early November I had my 2nd cataract successfully removed with a lens implant taking its place.  The necessity of using a contact lens to balance out my vision ceased with that operation.  Now I only wear glasses for close up work, reading and the computer.  I …

Statement of Purpose

October 3rd, 2011 | Posted by Steve in Photography - (Comments Off)

This is not a pure photography website, nor is it a pure travel website.  I am not the best photographer, and I am not the best writer.  There are lots of both around, but I do take a pretty good photo and I do write a pretty good story.  This website is a blend of the two.   In my …

15-IMG_4137 Jewish Chapel skylight

(Photos shot Sep. 24, 2011) The concentration camp grounds, once fraught with so much horror and despair, is now a memorial park.  Very few of the original buildings survive to this day.  Once past the museum only a few guard towers and the crematorium serve as a reminder of the brutal past. Once we left the museum …
