POTD: The Other Shroom

Posted on Updated on

A week ago, I posted a photo of a rather large tree mushroom. It had a smaller twin on the other side. We’ve had a very wet spring. ~Vic

POTD: Buddy

Going back fifteen years, this is a shot of Buddy, interrupting an exercise routine. This was during my Texas years. He was such a sweet baby and I still miss him. ~Vic

POTD: Stickwork Sculpture

Posted on Updated on

In November of 2015, Patrick Dougherty of Stickwork was commissioned by the Hillsborough Arts Council to craft a sculpture for our Riverwalk. The saplings were sustainably harvested from the Ayr Mount Historic Site. In December of last year, the heavy snowfall damaged the original piece and it was finally taken down. I’m glad I got some photos of it. ~Vic

POTD: Cardinal

Posted on Updated on

I saw the Cardinal thru the Den window. It was perched on one of the torches. Just as I took the shot, he took off. I was pleasantly surprised to capture him diving relatively clearly. ~Vic

POTD: The Dead Guide

Posted on Updated on

Yes. He’s dead…by his own admission. I heard him say he was born in 1735 when addressing his tour subjects. He was pleased that I wished to photograph him. I guess the lantern adds to the spookiness.

The town I live in is haunted…in some places. It’s pretty common knowledge. It is an old town. During the summer, there are ghost tours. I’m not kidding. I might take a tour one day. ~Vic

POTD: Examiner Encounters 2.0

Posted on Updated on

When I posted my first Examiner Encounter, I should have numbered it. I have a few of these things.

I climbed into a guy’s car for a road test and met his little friend. I asked him if he minded me taking a picture of it. He posed her a little bit for me. Then, I asked him “Favorite past-time?” “Nah.” was his response. “It was gift from a friend…a female friend, no less.”

This comes under the heading of Things You Don’t See Everyday. I DO miss this job sometimes. ~Vic

POTD: Examiner Encounters

Posted on Updated on

From October 2014 to August 2016, I was a Driver’s License Examiner. I had several interesting encounters and experiences. The job wasn’t bad but, HQ was a terrible problem. Politics is a nasty business.

This kid was the customer of one of my co-workers but, I started to giggle when I read it. He didn’t mind me taking a picture. ~Vic

POTD: Wash Me

Posted on Updated on

Well…I had intended to post about the 1959/1960 Payola Scandal that involved Dick Clark but, apparently, The History Channel can’t make up its mind which day it happened on. *sigh*

So, instead, Photo of the Day. ~Vic

They don’t know where the graves are for these headstones and many records have been lost.

New heading…

Picture of the Day or Photo of the Day. Either works.
