Camera problems

a painting of the place where my Aunt & Uncle used to work, Le Chateu de St. Albien [in France]
I think it's so cool that we have graffiti paintings hanging in the coffee bar. [I'd like to take some shots of them, but I'm not sure if I will]
The lilies out front this year...
...yup, still amazed by the sky [why do I feel that should be a poem??]

Well... I thought I'd get a bigger card for my camera [since I'm going on vacation soon]. This proved to be a nice idea. How-some-ever, my camera is too old. So, I may try to go to an actual camera shop & see what they have. I may even swallow my pride & ask to borrow a camera... but my "tried & true" Nikon is out dated. Sad. I'm not going to get rid of it any time soon, though. Nor can I just go out & buy a new one. I'm kinda stuck. Could be worse, my camera could be broken beyond repair, thankfully it's not. So I don't know how many shots I'll actually have when I get back. But I will work on getting a replacement... someday. I think my "camera fetish" is here to stay...

A post for Matt

This here is my current desktop. [above] I like the lighting.

My Dad would always put up a train platform, in the extra bedroom, of our house in Lititz. Usually only around Christmas. He has a permanent one up now [another photo day for me, sometime]. And a friend of mine, Matt, loves trains. So this is Matt's post.
Above is a metal plate coming off of a railroad tie.

This was fun, I thought of Matt the whole time. [& my Dad's train set in his basement]
Posting this makes me think I really need to hike the rail trail sometime...
[sorry this is verbally "muted". Much of my writing is tied up in about 3 or 4 posts I'm in the middle of writing, & a poem that is begging to come out]

-oh, this is the tracks beside the "newer" mall with Best Buy, Dick's, & Staples in it. [just in case you wondered]

reflection photos

So... I decided to try reflective photos....[I want to write a "reflective post", but can't for now. the week has been draining...oh...& yes, that's me in the red jetta]

Natural Bridge

A few years ago we took a vacation to Blackwater falls. On the trip home we went to Seneca Rocks & decided to impromptu stop here, at Natural Bridge in Virginia. So I think I'll show photos in reverse. Why? Well, I have tons of photos of Blackwater, & don't want to go through them right now. I loved the stone meandering pathway to it.

At night there are these candles, or lights, hidden in the rocks. It looked way cooler there than in this photo. Have a great one...

Natural Bridge

this was Natural Bridge, Virginia. We visited on our way home from West Virginia. [a few years ago]
