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.

Pictures of Thomas Jefferson's Home, Monticello

Today, April 13th, is Thomas Jefferson's birthday.  I took these pictures of his home, Monticello, located in Charlottesville, Virginia, two weeks ago. It was a beautiful April morning.  
This is a building in the gardens at Monticello, Thomas Jefferson's home. 

Front viw of Thomas Jefferson's home. There wer a lot of tourists here so I had to use some Photoshop magic to get this view with no one in it.

The beer cellar at Thomas Jefferson's home. I doubt that these barrels are original.
