Big Red - 2/13/2015 - Image-a-day

This hulking beast is parked across the street from our house. Our neighbor recently tore down his old house which has given us an unobstructed view of the Chesapeake Bay for a couple of months. Now the heavy equipment has come in and soon the construction will begin. We'll be sorry to lose our view once again.

A Touch of Frost - 2/12/15 - Image-a-day

Woke up to an Arctic blast that left a covering of frost on the cars and the bushes. It didn't last long once the sun took the sky, but lingered in the shadows for a little while. The crisp edges on the ivy like powered sugar.

Watching Shadows on the Wall - 2/11/15 - Image-a-day

Late on a winter day, I find these long shadows painting the hall as I left the office for the day. It was just that moment. It was the right time of the year. The right time to leave for the day. The right light at the right angle. It was just that moment. What was your moment today?

JAVA - 2/10/15 - Image-a-day

Cold weather day like today, it's damn near impossible to get through it without a cup or two of hot, black coffee. Today's image is of a refrigerator magnet a made back in the Kan-Ken Studio days of my art career. I used to do a lot of outdoor art shows back then and found it good to have some smaller, impulse buy pieces to ensure sufficient sales.

Game Over - 2/9/15 - Image-a-day

I did the laundry tonight. Monday night always seems to be a good night, it just seems wrong to have to do it over the weekend. The place I usually go to has a classic, sit down Ms. Pacman machine, which I've never played. When I was a kid, I was never any good at Pacman, always preferred Defender or Robotron or even Donkey Kong if I was going to play an arcade game.

Zombie Response Unit - 2/8/15 - Image-a-day

While driving home Friday, I spotted this "Virginia Zombie Outbreak" vehicle in the Ocean View section of Norfolk, Va. I had seen it once before a few months ago, but failed to get a photo, so I was glad to cross paths with it again. I am a fan of eccentrics and think it's a fading quality in the American character and blame the internet and the over abundance of homogenized twenty-four television culture distracting and brainwashing the population into a dull stupor. I wonder if this is just some kid having a bit of laugh or maybe they're shooting a movie. Whatever the reason, these folks are serious with a human skull dangling from the roof rack. I for one sleep a little sounder knowing that "Unit 2" is on patrol and will be ready to take on the zombie outbreak when it happens.

Dart World - 2/7/15 - Image-a-day

I went over to my good, old pal, Doug Maume's house tonight to throw darts and guess who won? We both did, 'cause anytime you can spend time throwing darts on a Saturday night with an old friend, everyone is a winner.


PS - I won three games out of five, but it was very close...
