Sometime Inspirational

Sometimes you wake up. 
Sometimes the fall kills you. 
And sometimes, when you fall, you fly.

              ~ Neil Gaiman ~

Sing, O Muse

Brick Wall and Steps

Sing, O muse, of the rage of Achilles, son of Peleus,
that brought countless ills upon the Achaeans.
~ Iliad
Sing to me of the man, Muse, the man of twists and turns
driven time and again off course, once he had plundered
the hallowed heights of Troy
~ Odyssey

Muses
My photographic Muse appears to be bricks.

Photo Challenge: On The Way

This week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge is “On The Way“.

With six hours (local time) left until Thursday turns to Friday, I thought I’d share some pictures with you.

The first two were taken at Fort Macon, North Carolina.

Photography 101: The Gallery

It happens to the best of us: we begin a post, save it as a draft, and then completely forget to publish it. The best laid plans of mice and men, and all that . . . Two weeks ago I’d planned to publish a gallery of my favorite photographs from Photography 101. I’d chosen my pictures, placed them in some semblance of order, and thought everything was taken care of. Imagine my surprise when I checked my drafts to see what was close to being finished so I could publish something today (tomorrow, at the latest) only to see my already-done photo gallery still unpublished and seemingly screaming “Pick Me! Pick Me!”

So, without further ado, here’s a few of my favorite photographs from Photography 101:
