Sometimes I wonder if I’m being too sly and underhanded sneaking photos of people without them knowing. But I like to think of it as simply capturing an honest moment. And yes, it is slightly blurry, but something I’m working on icon smile random restaurant patron .

This is probably the view if one has had too much to drink. Fortunately just my camera was that low to the bar.

For those of you that watch The Wire, this is probably a familiar sight. From the view of my train, I saw with my own eyes that these corners in Baltimore really do exist — and this particular one is for the taking. Mos def.

Yes, another pool shot, but I’m loving the late afternoon/early evening light.

On a more temperate night last week, we rode our bikes up the Hudson and stopped at one of my favorite landmarks, or should I say watermarks. Float Bridge No. 4, built in 1911, transferred rail cars to barges. “One of the most significant marine structures remaining in the city… showed less inclination to dump boxcars into the river.”

From the overly air conditioned car of my train, I gazed at the hot, hazy scenery outside my window.

This little one has many names — fizzy, Ava Grace, monkey, dude, Dahlia (her real name, but only when she says). Here she makes her debut as the Little Mermaid.

I could go on and on with these Tucson beauty shots, but I should probably get back to earth with some other subjects.

One of many amazing sights from my brother’s backyard.

As some may know, I’m a weather nut. Needless to say I was completely enthralled with the show the skies put on for me in Tucson.

This 4th of July weekend was spent at my brother’s house in Tucson. I have always wanted to experience the extreme heat of the desert during summer but temps only hovered around the high 90s. Good enough for me and thank goodness for swimming pools.

My dear friend Pamela has let me borrow her camera before I actually take the plunge and buy a 5D for myself. It’s a good sign that this camera is the one for me when I capture a shot like this.
