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 Ninetyeight: Captain's Landing

The days have been chilly here in northern NY, chillier than normal for June. It was 54 degrees at 7:00am. And very overcast. Lot of rain these last few days.

I snapped this photo at Capt.'s Landing "Floating Restaurant" located in the St. Lawrence River, Alexandria Bay, NY. I took it surreptitiously. I was there having a beer with my celebrity brother and liked the harsh light and the man's pose in the lower right corner of the photo. However, I didn't want to be obvious in taking the photo. So, I placed the camera on the table I was seated at and released the shutter without looking through the viewfinder. I moved the camera incrementally and took a few more shots. Among them was this photo which pretty much is what I wanted.
