Death and Rejuvenation

Death and Rejuvenation

There’s no avoiding it, but fall is banging on the seasonal door, trying desperately to elbow summer out of its way.  Unfortunately, there’s no other way to say this…I hate fall!!  And it’s not even fall that I dislike.  It’s winter!  I despise fall’s splendor, its smell of decay and its cool touch upon my … Continue reading

4Th of July Fireworks in September…Say What?

4Th of July Fireworks in September…Say What?

Finally…after a two month long postponement of my hometown’s 4th of July fireworks display, our skies were lit up and dancing to the jolting roar of explosions.  I’m not going to complain or question why there wasn’t any sort of entertainment in the band shell proceeding the really big show or the missing swell of … Continue reading

The Four Mausoleums of Fairview Cemetery

The Four Mausoleums of Fairview Cemetery

I haven’t posted in a little while because I’m trying to put the finishing touches on my website redesign.  It’s an amateur attempt and probably a future blog topic just as it was a couple years ago.  Until then, I have a few images from the couple days I spent in a cemetery working on … Continue reading

The HDR Cemetery…it seems less scary this way

The HDR Cemetery…it seems less scary this way

There’s no two ways about it…I fear dying.  Yeah, true story, always have and probably always will.  I’m not sure why either, other than it’s so final.  I haven’t been confronted with it too many times in my life.  Lost some family members early on and some later, but all in all Death hasn’t come … Continue reading

The Great Mohican Indian Pow-Wow

The Great Mohican Indian Pow-Wow

A couple weeks ago or maybe three, I can’t remember anymore, I attended my first Indian Pow-Wow.  I can’t really say why I never caught one before now, probably too darn hot or some other similarly sad yet seemingly reasonable excuse at the time, but I really enjoyed it.  I can’t wait until September for … Continue reading

4th of July Weekend 2013

4th of July Weekend 2013

I have to admit, Independence Day was a bit tough this year.  Why?  It rained every single day.  However, in between the raindrops we were able to attend a cookout on the 4th and watched the Crazy Gringos yesterday.  We caught the Gringos last year also, they’re a very good local band that performs a … Continue reading

Into The Belly of the Labyrinth

Into The Belly of the Labyrinth

My daughter and I spent Tuesday afternoon in the belly of a labyrinth.  This labyrinth was actually a nature path at the Heckert Nature Preserve located just outside of town.  We spent a couple hours in the intricate concourse of paths which convinced my daughter that we were moving deeper into the woods as opposed … Continue reading

HAZZAH!! A Vintage Baseball Afternoon

HAZZAH!! A Vintage Baseball Afternoon

Last weekend my daughter and I spent a hot, sunny, Sunday afternoon (yes, a hot and sunny day in Ohio, which is rare these days because it’s rained everyday since) watching a couple games of vintage baseball.  I’m a huge baseball fan and this was the first vintage game I saw.  It was a much … Continue reading

Murissa and the 5k Run

Murissa and the 5k Run

Yesterday morning my daughter, Murissa, and niece, Ashley, ran their first ever 5k.  It was the fourth annual Moving Hearts and Soles 5k Run/Walk held in memory of Dr. Theodore Ebner. I’m immensely proud of my daughter for a number of reasons. One, as parents, my wife and I want both of our children to be active in … Continue reading

A Walk Through the Woods

A Walk Through the Woods

With my camera in tow, I spent a couple hours visiting Lowe-Volk Park last week. It’s not a big place, but does host a piece of the Sandusky River. Below are some of the images I captured.             These next couple of  images were used in my 365 Project. I … Continue reading
