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.

It's a cold Black Friday 2013

Today is Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. It is a cold one here in northern NY. The temperature in Chaumont was a mere 8 degrees. That's chilly baby. I am working later today for The Post-Standard and syracuse.com. I will be covering events in Armory Square in Syracuse. I snapped a photo from the downstairs bathroom this morning. The dark mass on the left is an out of focus Maple tree. The wall at the right is the back shed that is need of painting. The morning Sun illuminates a section of the backyard fence. There is also some frost formations on the storm window.

A frosty window here in Chaumont on this Black Friday morning. View of the backyard from the downstairs bathroom. 
If I had shot this photo with the Nikon D300 or D7000 I could have used a small apertutre and increased the depth of field so that the frost pattern on the storm window would be sharp.
