It’s Hard Out There For A Sign

We were recently in South America (more pictures soon, probably), and one of the places we visited was Buenos Aires. It was actually the third time I'd been there, so a few of the things we saw were "repeats," if you will. Anyhow, when I got back I was looking back at my pictures and I saw this one of a random parking lot in the San Telmo neighborhood of Buenos Aires: I wondered why I'd felt the need to shoot that particular picture because it's pretty pointless and there's nothing going Read more [...]

The Good Ol’ Days Weren’t Always Good…

In my last post I talked about nostalgia in the form of Billy Joel's song "Keeping The Faith." Coincidentally, Angela recently put this picture up below my computer monitor: God knows where she found it. We do joke that we're incredibly lucky we didn't meet each other when we were 15 years old, though, since neither of us was in any type of prime at that age. In any case, it was taken when I was 15, while on a trip to California. It was at my great aunt and great uncle's house. It's also photographic Read more [...]

September 2014 Pictures of the Day

Hi everyone! Blogtoberfest is still going strong! I like it because I feel pushed to actually get my act together, and today's no exception. Here are the Pictures of the Day from September (so, still not caught up, but not as far behind anymore): If you can't see the slideshow, you can check out the album here. As a note, if you want to see the pictures of Will, please add me on flickr as a friend or family, since I'll be making pictures of him private soon. Thanks, and thanks for reading Read more [...]

Viva Elvis!

Since Elvis Week is wrapping up (he passed away on August 16, 1977), I thought I'd talk about Elvis in some way. We've been listening to songs and reading about him all week in the English class I'm teaching, and Sitzman ABC is also a bit Elvis-ified, but Sitzblog hasn't fully commemorated The King in style yet. Especially since this was the year that I finally got to Graceland, I had to put up something. So, I decided to share some quotes I found this week, some pictures from my Graceland visit, Read more [...]

April 2014 Pictures of the Day

As usual, I'm fairly behind on posting my Pictures of the Day. But at least I've still not been behind on taking them over the last three years--that's the important part! Anyhow, here are April's Pictures of the Day. You may have heard that we got a baby? No? Well then, let me just share a few hundred pictures with you! Or how about we just start with 30? If you can't see the slideshow, you can see the whole set here, or my latest pictures on flickr here. Thanks for checking them out, and Read more [...]

Well, February's almost over, so you know what that means: It's time for me to bust a move and finally post my January Pictures of the Day. Here's a slideshow, but if you can't see it, you can also go to the set on flickr. Thanks for reading and looking--have a good day! Read more [...]

Mississippi River Pictures

Back in January we went on a riverboat trip from Memphis to New Orleans. I'd been meaning to upload some pictures from that great trip, but I'd been pretty busy up until now. Here are some of my favorite pictures from that trip, but you can see more (MANY more) here in this set on my flickr page. These pictures are out of order, but you get the idea. Well, that's it for now. Like I said, there are a lot more pictures at that flickr Read more [...]
