Spring Water - 1/17/15 - Image-a-day

On Saturday I went with my Dad and his neighbor Frank to a natural spring well to gather water. My Dad swears by this water to keep him healthy. We brought a couple of dozen two liter jugs to fill. The water flows freely from a white PVC pipe coming from the ground. The water tastes sweet and pure.

Dawn Flight - 1/16/15 - Image-a-day

I saw the sunrise from an airplane window this morning. Clear weather is a traveler's friend. Heading Mississippi-way to visit my Dad for the weekend.

Pineapple Jack - 1/15/15 - Image-a-day

Today's image is a blast from the past, "Pineapple Jack"! He's one of my old sculptures from the 1990s that was a direct build-up method using UltraCal-30 plaster with nails and a board and painted with acrylics. I'm glad he's still hanging on my wall.

That's Ice for You - 1/14/15 - Image-a-day

Last night our area had a near miss with a wintery storm. Thirty-three degrees and raining was as close as it got in Tidewater, but northwest on the Peninsula the iceman cameth. All the trees twinkled with a thin coating of ice, just enough to be beautiful, but not so much that branches were coming down on the power lines. When I got to work, I grabbed a few photos before it all melted away...

A Foggy Journey Home - 1/12/15 - Image-a-day

It was a rainy and chilly Monday. The perfect kind of day to stay home in bed and read a good book, but alas, I had to go to work. By the end of the day, heavy fog rolled in making the drive home atmospheric, soft and mysterious.

Downtown Sound - 1/11/15 - Image-a-day

Today's image is of a street band I happened across while in the Ghent area of Norfolk today called "The Downtown Sound", a three-piece group; tuba, sax and drum kit. I enjoyed their jazzy, funky cover of Cee Lo Green's "Crazy". It was so funky, for a few minutes I felt like I was on Frenchman's Street in New Orleans...

Cosmic Shards - 1-10-15 - Image-a-day

We visited The Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk, Va today. It's been a long time since we walked the halls there. Spent some time checking out the contemporary glass and I was mesmerized by this piece by German artist, Josepha Gasch-Muche called 7.3.2011. Inspired by my friend Ralf's recently posted short videos, I shot this short bit of moving picture trying to capture the elusive abstract quality of this work.
