Now it’s looking like snow. Guess I’ll just wait out the traffic jam.



What passes for snow around here. Everyone panic!



Not much better here in Tuscaloosa, @BoringPostcards:



Morning’ y’all.

Our friend and neighbor Steve Davis of Sunheart Metalworks has just built and installed a new railing for us on our back steps. The back steps appear to have never had a rail, and we’ve been meaning to add one since we moved in about 4 years ago. The wait was worth it, and Steve’s work, as always is beautiful. (He also did a tree for the front of the house that one of these days I’ll get around to photographing.) Click the photo aboveto see my photoset of the new railing.

Little known fact about Steve: He’s a member of the London Blacksmith’s guild, and his work is featured on the gates to Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.

Not long ago, I took my camera with me on an early morning walk along the river in Tuscaloosa. I regularly see the UA rowing crew out practicing, and occasionally see someone in a single shell. I spotted him that morning, and I’m especially happy with the way this shot turned out.

I recently picked up a Minolta Hi-Matic 7s rangefinder camera, and I’m having fun taking photos with film again. There’s a bit of a learning curve, and focusing is still hard with the dim old rangefinder, but I like the results I’m getting. (The photo in the header was taken the same morning, and you can see the rowing team going by.)
