About this blog title

I cannot tell you how many times I have shown up at events with a couple of cameras around my neck, a gadget bag full of odds & ends and a lighting kit and have been asked that question. If it happened once every few years, that would be one thing. But it happens a LOT. It's like getting pulled over by the police and he's standing there with uniform, gun, flashing lights and asking him "Are you a cop?" I would love to come back with a witty reply, such as "No, I am Jesus. Don't you recognize my beard?" However, I cannot be that rude.

Day Fiftyfour: Time Out Grill, Chardon, Ohio

So we are visiting Ohio, Painseville to be exact, about 20/25 miles East of Cleveland. Sometimes I just take quick snapshots of places I have been just as a diary, or notebook type of reminder of where I have been, what I have done. That's the case with these photos taken at the Time Out Grill in Chardon, Ohio. Stopped in there and had a Burning River pale ale beer created by the Great Lakes Brewing Co. of Cleveland. A darn good beer. While there I snapped a shot of the inside of the joint. Just set the camera on the table and snapped the photo without looking through the viewfinder. I didn't want to draw attention to myself because that would lead into conversatiuon & more. With todays digital cameras such pix are easy to get and have comme out technically good. The light was dim inside, my shutter speed was about a 1/15th of a sec. Setting the camera on the table and carefully depressing the shutter is like haveing the camera on a tripod. Anyhow, there was nothing artsy or profound involved here. I was just documenting a stop for a beer in my travels.
