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 197: Primary Day

Sunny and pleasant in Chaumont, NY today. It is also primary day, when voters select candidates for election in November. I am a registered independent, therefor, here in NY state, I cannot participate in any of the primaries. I mlive in NY's 23rd congressional district. Voters in the republican primary will choose between Doug Hoffman and Matt Doheny. Not that what I write hear will have any bearing on anything, if I coulod vote I would cast mine for Hoffman. Anyhow, the polls close at 9:00pm and because of that I will be in the Syracuse area this evening covering one of the local primarys.

This is a painting titled View of Horse Island, held by it's creator, Tom Bintz, also known as Captain Honk. It's a mixed media piece. It consists of a background painted on a section of the hull of an old wooden boat. He then has glued on a variety of odds and ends and scraps of things to create a busy nautical scene. I like this piece a lot.
