The Holidays are over —

with 7 comments

And so it’s back to work, or school, or the day-to-day routine we had prior to the festivities.

This year I have a number of goals ahead of me.  I need to get a certification before the end of 2010;
I must finish (successfully) a big project by 4/12/2010 or else!

I need to save more money, but I don’t know how I’m going to do that-given that expenses
are higher and higher.

Did you know that banks are charging your favorite suppliers, retailers, and service providers
much higher clearing charges for credit and debit charges as of 1/1/2010?  This will carry-over to
to us consumers of course.  You should see the effect this week I’m sure.

I hope to make some advance in my photography this year.  I’ve been toying around
with it for two years and now its time to either get serious or give the equipment away!

I’m not one for resolutions, so I’m not going to make any – but I’ve got to lose some weight.
The problem is – I’m always hungry!!! And I like good food!  I’m pretty proud of my self – I’ve gone
over two and a half years without a cigarette – and I know that has been part of the weight gain

Anyway, I hope your first week back goes well.

Rememberance of Summer

with 7 comments

I’ve been fooling around with HDR post-processing again.  Please excuse me if the results are too rough for your eyes  – but in this photo (taken last summer on Anna Maria Island), the blue in this scene makes me realize why I love the color blue so much.  Hopefully I’ll improve my skills here.  Let me know if you like it or hate it -(I can take it – you wouldn’t believe the crap I take on a daily basis at work).

Steam Engine Stacks and the Old Simpson Hotel

leave a comment »

steam engine stacks edited 2The temperatures here in Florida have finally moderated and it was a nice afternoon with a nice breeze.  I could actually walk around without getting drippy with sweat.  This shot was taken on Lake Dora, in Mount Dora, FL.

The old Simpson Hotel in Mount Dora.  You check-in, but you don’t check out!

Something about boats and sailing

with 3 comments

While on Anna Maria, I ran across this yacht dealer and looked over some of his offering.  This, I guarantee you was just a fantasy adventure.

Cortez 1

Many to pick from —

Cortez 2

Would have made a lovely sail —

Cortez 3

Adeline would suit me well, I’m sure!!  A beautiful sailing vessel.

Cortez 4This love knot would have you in pain very soon!  I couldn’t believe it was still afloat.

Cortez 5And there’s something nice about a power boat too.  Sure looks nice, eh?

I didn’t buy – I’m sure I’ll sleep well.

I wanted to get out early, but when the clock said 5:00AM, I knew it was too late – but I set out anyway.  Here’s what I got.


This turned out great - by accident!
