A Walk in the Woods

Stream in Rutherford Park. 1/6 second. I’m not steady enough for that slow a speed, so too blurry.

I see I haven’t updated this thing since Christmas. I’m the worst. Sorry.

Sitting around the house in quarantine all day gets boring pretty quick. So, I grabbed my old Panasonic Lumix camera (thanks, Brenda!), and went for a walk along the stream behind our house. Nothing much to see, but it was a beautiful day, so I took a few pics. Also took a few pics of the flowers around the house before they all fall off. Love spring in Virginia. To see the pics, mouse over the first pic and when the cursor turns into a finger click on it, then click on the right arrow to go through them.

Amanda’s Fairy Garden

So, this is my front yard now

Well, Amanda has been busy. We now have a fairy garden in the front yard. It looks pretty cool, in a Pinterest kind of way. But I got up this morning and the bridge and a few buildings were were overturned. I think I saw some chipmunks running from the crime scene wearing “Resist!” t-shirts. But I may be wrong. Here’s a few pics of this new land. Click the first one to embiggen, then click on the right side of the picture to run through them.

Walking Arty Through the Woods


It’s a beautiful winter day here in Northern Virginia.  When I woke up this morning, there was about an inch of snow covering everything, but when I finally got around to walking Amanda’s dog Artemis, most of the snow had melted.  I took a few pictures with my Panasonic Lumix point-and-shoot camera with it’s Leica (branded) lens.  I often forget how beautiful NoVa can be.  Here are a few pics.  Click the first one to embiggen, then click on the right side of the picture to run through them.
