You’re on Candid Camera!” Perhaps I am dating myself, but the premise was that people were taped with concealed cameras as they were being confronted with unusual situations, sometimes involving trick props. When the joke was revealed, victims would be told the show’s catch phrase, […]

  • How to Better Photograph Flowers and Plants

    August 17, 2011 at 8:08 pm

  • The Cicada Invasion

    June 9, 2011 at 2:40 pm

    I have had houseguests for over a month who have created quite a racket and have left a mess all over the yard.  I guess it is alright as they won’t be back for another 13 years. I am referring, of course, to the 13-year cicadas, officially called Brood XXIX. They last burrowed out of […]
