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.

More From My Neighbors Bedroom

These are some more snaps I took of an upstairs bedroom in a neigthbors house down the street from me in Chaumont, NY. He passed away some time ago & his home is being sold in a tax auction.

Some days, like today, I wonder what the point of it all is. I'm sleepy, it is late, I may as well go to bed. Tomorrow I go to Teaism in Clayton, NY to p-lay some guitar during luch hour. Roughly 11:30- 1:30. Might be 12-2. It is a loose affair. What will come of it in the end?

I am a landlord and every 30 days I collect some rents. I am a newspaper photographer (really not the same as a photojournalist). Every 7 days I collect a paycheck. I am a guitarist and once in a while someone pays me to play my instrument. I also teach guitar and 2 days a week a few students pay me for a half or an hour of my time. A couple of times a month I manage to land freelance photography jobs. In my off time I practice guitar, try to keep up maintanence on my home in Chaumont and my rental units. Cars too. Today I spent most of my time stacking fire wood.
So that is life in the North Country.
