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 119: Limerick Wall

It only reached about 65 degrees in Chaumont, NY today. It was windy, Sun and some clouds. I played guitar at the framer's market in Watertown which is about 12 miles from where I live. The playing went well. The market was crouded and I saw many people I knew, some whom I had not seen in quite a long time.

This photo was taken in the hamlet of Limerick which is five miles from my home. I was enroute to Watertown one day and when I recahed Limerick I discovered I had left the house without my wallet. So, I pulled into a driveway to turn around and spotted this wall and tree. I had to photograph it. Now, it was at first frustrating to learn I had to back track five miles to get my wallet, I wouldn't have made this photo had that not happened. Serendipity? Maybe.

"In making tactical dispositions, the highest pitch you can attain is to conceal them; conceal your dispositions, and you will be safe from the prying of the subtlest spies, from the machinations of the wisest brains." Sun Tzu, The Art of War
