Ohio's Buckeye Trail runs (actually walks, I suppose) a loop around the state, and passes through Hocking Hills State Park area. When I was exploring the Old Man Cave area, I picked up the Buckeye, and followed it a ways towards Cedar Falls. This is still in the gorge at Old Man Cave, a bit downstream of the lower falls.

Southern Indiana supposedly has a wonderful collection of covered bridges. So I picked up a "Covered Bridge Country" map at the welcome center, and it looked like there was one just a few miles off the interstate (I70). After quite a bit of backroads, I did find Cataract Falls, which didn't strike my fancy. I should've noticed that it didn't have a description on the map, as the rest did.... But I did find this cool barn, probably 1/2 way. Nikon D70

My Grandfather was an electrician for the Norfolk & Southern railroad in central NC for 35+ years, before retiring in 1963. I remember him telling me about electricity in his basement shop, showing me things like how a motor can run both directions. He was self taught, through a correspondence course from the American School in Chicago, IL in the late 1920's. When he died (in 1973), I received several of his reference books, including the self-bound collection of his lessons from the American School. He was a major influence on my decision to become an electrical engineer, and 30+ years later, I still treasure these reminders of him.

I'm Late with this one, a Leftover from our Disney trip. This Little fellow was Lazing by the Lake. No Leaping here, just Leaning.... Probably Looking for some Lemur-Love, or at Least a Little Latte? And didn't Gary Larson do a Far Side cartoon a while back about "Larry of the Lemurs"???? Nikon D70.

When I took this picture, I figured it would be "SOOOOO Cool". The detail of the tree trunk, the the depth of the tree behind, then the woods benind. I eagerly opened the file, and.....BLAH. It just didn't work. So I added additional blur, to try and accentuate the difference. Then I darkened the back tree, to try and accentuate the difference. Then I lightened the front tree (justa touch), etc, etc, etc. I'm still not happy with it. But life is full of shots that don't look as good as when you were standing there..... Nikon D70

Taken last week at Silver Lake Park, Highland, IL, during a lunchtime "wander". I thought about calling this Green Day #2. It was taken not far from the location of "Green Day", one of Photography Unlimited's "Pictures of The Month" for April '05. Nikon D70, effects in Photoshop Elements.

From one of the upper floors of the College Station, TX, Hilton, I don't remember which. The sun was setting, a storm ws moving in from the south..... I thought it looked cool. This is yet another in the continuing series of photos taken with disposable (one-use) cameras.

A macro shot, using my old manual 75-210 zoom, from my Nikon FM2. it works great on my Nikon D70, except none of the metering works. The camera's display (including histogram) allows quick tweaking, though. This is from the passenger seat of my wife's mini-van. I probably should've cleaned the mirror first..........
