Verrazano-Narrows Bridge
The day started early...very early. I had a 6:45 am flight from DFW to EWR for a meeting with a potential vendor. As I do, I took numerous photos inside the beautiful D Terminal at DFW, but none of them made the cut this time, because on the transit from EWR to JFK to take a flight out that evening (yeah, it was a day-trip *shudder*) we took the I248 over the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. What a glorious, if badly in need of some paint and loving, structure. Lou, who was driving the car lives in the area and was full of knowledge as were Greg and Rich, who both grew up in the area. I'd never been across this bridge before; and I can't imagine a better way to travel across it than with these three very knowledgeable gentlemen. This photo is of the Manhatten side support as viewed from Dyker Beach Park in Brooklyn. Named for Italian explorer Giovanni de Verrazano, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world at the time of its completion in 1964 and remained so until 1981. It is now the 7th longest suspension bridge in the world but remains the longest in the US.
The bridge connects Staten Island to Brooklyn and is widely considered to be the entry point to Manhatten. It is the starting point for the world-renknowned New York City Marathon and marks the entrance to New York Harbor. These are just a few of the fascinating bits of information imparted to me during that 2.5 hour drive from Newart Airport to JFK Airport. Thanks, guys.
Cheers.

Great picture of this well known bridge. We´ll have to wait untill september or October to see the marathonrunners again on that bridge isn´t it?
*sweet coffee* Candy for the eye

It's the first weekend in November, actually. But the site of all those runners moving across the bridge is truly spectacular.

Stacked Bowls
The night before Scarborough Faire opens and we're doing the gear-up dance. It's closing on bed-time and there's still a photo to be taken. The day had completely got away from me with errands and chores and packing, so this stack of faire-appropriate bowls to the rescue. As re-enactors, it's very important to always look the part, even when doing something totally mundane, such as eating; so we are always on the lookout for cool wooden or ceramic bowls that fit that bill. This is a small stack of them that we keep at this festival. We have similar stacks at other faires.
Cheers.

Blazing Sun at East Wind Games
Scarborough Faire opened this morning with a bang (literally) as the canon announced the beginning of faire season (for East Wind Games). Soon after, the yard in front of my shop was teeming with pirates in all manner of dress and attitude. This crazy bunch of folk have toiled & sweat, and in at least one case, bled for me on the ramp up to this festival. The very least I can do is provide them a place to hang out. This is the crew of the Blazing Sun; a crazy batch of pirates and great friends.
Cheers.

Skallywaggs
Perhaps because I was still partially frozen from the day before; perhaps I was busier than the previous day; perhaps I was just forgetful; but this is the only photo I managed to take on 8 April.
It's a poor excuse for a photo, but it is what I have so I guess I'll explain. This is Skallywaggs. A wonderfully easy, but deceivingly complex game of pirate adventure. Made by some friends of mine over at Bent Castle Workshops, I highly recommend it. Here you see a three-person game, although it can accomodate 2 - 4 players. Stop by the East Wind Games shop at Scarborough Faire and I'll teach you how to play.
Cheers.

Ducks & Bunnies & Eggs, oh my
Ducks & bunnies & eggs and the odd fleur de lis decoration tossed in for good measure hang from the wrought chandelier in the dining room. I was hoping for a better composition than this, but my batteries died immediately after taking this photo, so that's that. This was supposed to be the test photo with the composition and tweaking to come after, but instead this is the photo I got stuck with.
Easter is done and over, so I'm guessing these stuffed animals will go back into a Rubber Maid tub to be safely stored until next year.
Cheers.

Cormac & 'Tia
Cormac & 'Tia. They're not so much out of focus, as they are blurry. You see, it's dinner time and these two pups just love their dinner. They're practically vibrating with anticipation.

It had been a very long day, andmy camera still didn't have any batteries in it; so this was taken at the end of the day with my wife's camera. After many beers, an emotionally fraught evening with my footy manager & wife and an unfamiliar camera, I fear the composition is totally lacking in anything artful.

It's so easy to get behind. Between dead-batteries, unfamiliar cameras, business-trips, entrepreneurial endeavours and trying to have a life of some sort, it's just so easy to get behind. So, here I am on the 23rd of April, making a post that should have been up on the 11th (my Mother's birthday). Happy Birthday, mum!
Springtime on my Street
They're loud, they're obnoxious, they're irreverent and have no sense whatsoever of the real world. They're ill-behaved, screaming children and they infest my street; but they do make decent photographic subjects. Headed home that 11th of April, the sun was just starting it's disappearing act silhouetting these two children as they romped with abandon in the busy street. I stopped and took the photo hoping to capture a little of the beauty of youth that these children so frequently do not display. It's not that I dislike kids overmuch, it's that I despise these kids. They torture my dogs, throw eggs at my house, tromp through my yard and wake me up screaming at 6:30 every Saturday morning. But, when silhoutted by a setting sun, they can even appear peaceful.
Cheers.

I have no choice but to post numerous times a day to get caught up. It's difficult, at the best of times to accomplish this, but on occasion the small sacrafice can be made; that is push something to the side momentarily while I retake the task to get my photos & words online.
This photo was taken on 12 April and it, too, is being posted on 23 April:
Lonely Road
This road retreats from one of my primary driving arteries into an area that, despite lack of rainfall, almost always has some vestiges of water remaining. Enough water, in fact, that many of the local fisherman in the area take sport & solace down this mostly abandoned and overgrown road.

Friday the 13th, triskadecaphobics beware. Luckily, I'm no such creature. Born on Halloween, I've always been aware of and amused/amazed by superstitions and those who fall prey to such; but I've never been one myself. So, I met the day with nary a glance and certainly no fear or trepidation.
Feather in my Cap
This photo is of an amazing feather that my very (I miss you) dear friend Kelly procured from me. It's amazing and fluffy and natural; it is quite unlike most of the hat feathers that vendors at Renaissance Festivals the country over try to stick in your hat. Kelly was of the opinion that I should have a fluffy feather, so there it now resides comfortably ensconced in a fabulous leather tricorn. It is lit from above my track-lighting that we installed a couple of years ago at the shop; yes this photo was taken at Scarborough Faire where we spent a very cold night.
Cheers.

I'm still playing catchup. Three posts yesterday, perhaps I can get three more in today, the 24th of April.
The 14th of April was a very, very cold day at Scarborough Faire but with the joy of snow as we had the previous Saturday. It was just cold, miserable & joyless.
It also appears as though I somehow messed up on the sequence. The last photo I posted yesterday; the one of the feather, was actually taken on the 14th, not the 13th. While this photo I shall post now, was taken on that Friday the 13th. I'm not sure how I made the mistake since I specifically chose a fantastical subject for a fantastical day.
Guardian
This is one of numerous guardians we have scattered through our lives. Obtained from Donna who once owned the shop I now call East Wind Games, this young dragon hangs peacefully from the ceiling at our house. Donna's product is delightful with a fantastical, whimsical element that is hard to beat; in short they are a beautiful addition to the family.
Cheers.

Here I am again, playing catchup still. Yesterday was mostly a wash in trying to get photos up; there was just too much to do with too little time.
Chess Pieces
This photo is of the front of my shop from the vantage point of a chess piece. The chess table is 3 1/2' tall and sits on the front lawn of East Wind Games at Scarborough Renaissance Festival. It's an attraction that brings many people to the lawn and thus into the shop every day. Sitting on the bench that bears my family coat-of-arms is Bill. He's been an excellent help to me this season. Thanks, Bill.

Most excellent. Two posts in a row, which means I'm that much closer to catching up. Part of the trick of this past-posting dance I'm having to perform here is remembering the reasons, the wherefores and the emotions surrounding the photo I've chosen. Sometimes it's easy as in, that's the only shot of the day. Other times it's not so easy such as this one:
Light Star
I've dredged through my memories and believe I've settled on the proper one. The photo was taken with Marita Beth's camera rather than my own, so we must have been out without my bag. That normally happens when I've either a) not been home very long or b) someone else is driving. So, I believe this is the night that Marita Beth, Ginger, Laura, Larry, Denise & I went to the Black-Eyed Pea for dinner and some friendly abuse by the waitress (actually, she was quite witty & I appreciated her sense of humour). All of the above then makes this a photo of the shade over the lights above the table.
Great friends, decent food and an excellent time.
Cheers.

Still catching up, but I am getting there if slowly. The 17th was a Tuesday; but unlike most Tuesday's that wind down with a trip to No Frill's Grill for $1 beer and trivia, I instead got on an airplane and went to the East Coast, Philadelphia in fact. I had to attend a meeting early enough on Wednesday that there were no flights in that I could catch. So, it was an overnight trip. Jill met as at the airport and we went to Champps for dinner and drinks before retiring to the hotel in downtown Philadelphia. I tried to take photos during the cab ride, but the cabbie didn't stay still long enough for me to get a good capture of anything; and the cobblestone streets didn't lend themselves to good movement photography either. So, instead I'm posting a photo of the interior of my Hilton room.
The bed was just as lumpy as it looks.And the window looks out directly onto a parking lot; what a view!
Inside the Hilton
That was my Tuesday.
Cheers.

Happy Birthday Sweetheart!
and where am I? Philadelphia. We had our meeting, then lunch with the airport GM, then off we headed to the airport for the return trip to DFW. Little did I know just what a day this was going to turn into. My boss & I were booked on the same return flight; he made it, I didn't. My short trip to PHL resulted in a 4-hour wait in the small airport bar called "The Old Philadelphia Tavern." Reasonably priced but too crowded, I whiled away the time swinging between pissed off, depressed & lonely in rapid time. I couldn't believe that I was spending my wife's birthday in a tavern in the Philadelphia airport; but such is the glory of work travel, wot?
View from the Old Philadephia Tavern
This officer strode by at a rapid pace several times with his beautiful canine companion at heel. The third time through, I had my camera ready and grabbed the shot. It's a good thing I did, as I didn't see him again and I would have remained unhappy about the missed opportunity. When we left the hotel that morning, I inadvertantly locked my camera in the boot of the taxi, so these airport-interior shots were to my photos of the day. At least this one tells a story.
Cheers.

When I started this project, I don't think I realized the magnitude of commitment involved. I'm not unused to commitments; I'm not unused to photography nor even writing. But, when all three elements are thrown into a must-do daily mix I suppose there will be some days in which failure is going to occur. This day, Thursday, April 19th was one such day. I can make all sorts of excuses as to why there wasn't a photo taken on this day: dead batteries, exhaustion from a very long day in Philadelphia the day before, a long day at work, whatever. But, they're just excuses to cover a failure. I failed to take a photo on this day.

20 April, 2007
I most certainly made up for my lack of photos on the 19th by taking a great many on Friday the 20th. I took the day off work and spent the early part of it running errands for MB who was still feverishly working on clothing for the Scarborough Faire cast as part of her A Wardrobe in Time business. But, that evening, as we had planned for weeks, we went downtown to the Ft. Worth Main Street Arts Festival. This festival attracts many of the country's greatest artisans from all works of media and the display and potential for beauty and fun is enormous. There are also a great many shows of great diversity; rock, country, clogging, theatre, comedy...it's all represented at this phenomenal event in Ft. Worth.
Arche Dream for Human Kind
The photo is a snapshot of a moment in the Arche Dream for Human Kind's 45 minute (or so) allegorical dance production called Balance. It's worth your time if you ever get the opportunity to see them.

Saturday the 21st and another day at Scarborough Renaissance Festival. After the previous two weekends and their respective snow & bitter cold, I wasn't looking forward to this. East Wind Games was having a poor showing, financially, at the festival because, frankly, who wants to sit and play games when your bollocks are freezing?
But, this weekend dawned brisk & warm and it was made the better for my good friend George having left his home in Wisconsin to come visit us for a few days.
George at Scarborough
This is George. I asked him to scowl, and he gave me a scowl...a right royal scowl. Despite the excellence of the subject, the photo didn't come out quite right, it's a little too blurry for my taste and I was ultimately disappointed. So, I bipped it a bit with PhotoShop to get this:

A couple of business trips and I find myself once again approximately two weeks behind. Will I not ever catch up?

Second post on 7 May, the only way I can catchup is these multiple-post days.
Before the Storm
This photo is of that same "English" garden that I've used in the past as a subject. I suppose I'll take photos of it all year long as the flora does continue to change with the seasons. I hope someday to have opportunity to stroll its paths and walkways as it is truly beautiful.
What cannot be gleaned from the photo is that later in this day a storm was to come a thundering through that wreaked major havoc through the area. Mutliple tornadoes were spotted; massive hail came down; and many, many flights & planes were cancelled. More than 5000 folks were forced to spend the night in Dallas as they could not leave the area. Quite the storm.

Road to Where?
Some days, the normal paths to work are congested. This morning was no different so I took an alternate, much-less-travelled road to the office. This street winds through some of the most astonishing architectural views in all of North Arlington/Ft. Worth. Truly beautiful drive.

Still the 8th of May, but this photo is from the 26th of April. I think I've mentioned before how difficult it is to remember what was going through my head when I took a particular picture. Some times it's easy, sometimes it's hard. This time...it's hard.
Post
I have, honestly, no idea what this is or even exactly where it is. I have a vague recollection of filling up with petrol and taking photos while the pump was engaged. But of what really remains a mystery to me. I like the photo. I like the background colours (trees or grass or bush) and the depth of field is quite nice; it certainly provides a very sharp line between subject and background. Call it an eyeball bender.

Taken on Saturday, April 28, this is the only photo I took that day:
Skull
Scarborough Faire finally delivered a good day for East Wind Games. It was a long, tiring day but that's because there were people at the festival and it was not cold. In fact it was quite comfortable bordering on warm. However, due to the way the day progressed, I neglected to take any photos until near bedtime. I'd been drinking out of this mug all day and decided it should just be my subject for the photo. I took one photo and called it a night. The mug is from Pirate Pots and I highly recommend it. It's great quality with a superior design.

My second post on the 10th of May and the final post of April (hooray!) Maybe, someday, I actually will be caught up.
Hawk and Statue
Hawk and Statue. It sounds like it should be the name of some neo-English pub rather than the title of a photo. But, the photo needed the title, because well...it's a Hawk and a Statue. This particular morning, Marita Beth was taking me to work (for what reason, I don't recall). We went down the side road that takes us past that beautiful English garden I photograph so frequently and Marita Beth practically split my eardrums when she yelled, "Stop! There's a hawk on her head!" So, I backed up to take a series of photos. Marita Beth had, regretfully, left her camera at the house so the only photos taken were mine. This is when I wish my zoom was more powerful and more stable. The photo is a little blurry because I just could not hold the camera still enough and the image stabilizer wasn't enough to compensate. Some day I'll have a really cool camera capable of the best photo under the worst conditions. Until then, I do what I can with what I have and for the greater part am pleased.
Cheers.

I'm caught up. Well, sort of; I still need to go back and put words to a whole of images, but at the very least the images are captured online and placed in their proper spots in the diary. In fact, this image was taken only just last night so I am truly back in the groove...or so one hopes.
As part of that existence that is East Wind Games, I order & bring in product that fits the overriding theme of a Faire-based shoppe. Sometimes I skirt the edge of what may be acceptable in terms of historicity (word?), but there's an acceptance factor and coolness to most of what I bring in that I can live with the fact that in no way did the item exist in any historical context. The games, Cathedral & Skallywaggs come immediately to mind as I sell a number of these games through the shop and neither can claim to be historical. They are, however, historically-themed. The latest game to skirt that boundry is Skybridge. If the game was of brightly coloured plastic pieces there is an inescapable conclusion to which I would have to be drawn: not acceptable. However, since it's of beautiful stained wood pieces and is an engaging game, I will sell it. This is a closeup of one of the corners after the game was completed, but before we put it away. It's great fun.
Skybridge
Cheers.

The second day in a row where my post is on time.
In the Garden
This pair of cracked-glass gazing globes sits in the garden in our front yard. I had just arrived at the house after a blah day at the office and having taken but one photo. The sun was making its slow retreat to the West but was still sufficiently above the horizon that it cast a sparkling light on these globes. I could hardly resist, and certainly they were a better subject than the power tower that had been my subject some 20 minutes earlier on the drive home. Much better. The image did not result as my mind's-eye saw it, but then they so rarely do I've stopped being surprised, nor even overtly disappointed.
Cheers.

It's a soapbox.
The Rape of Gaia
This is construction equipment and a companion piece to this photo by Marita Beth. It's not that I'm against construction or advancement or technology; quite the contrary in fact. I am, however, against the methods being employed by the companies that working these areas and the governments allowing them. In the North Texas areas, there are over 200 of these Natural Gas wells scattered about. They all come attended by various construction machines such as the one I have photographed here. Each of these wells gets "fracked" approximately 17 times in it's lifetime. Each "frack" consumes 14 million (million!) gallons of water as the natural gas is flushed from the ground. What remains of the 14 million gallons of water is supposed to be "disposed of properly." However, evidence uncovered by the Ft. Worth Weekly indicates that it is instead dumped, contaminated now with heavy metals and other harmful elements, back out into the ground allowing it to seep back into the water table. If you do the math, you will quickly and easily see that we are likely doing irreprable harm to the North Texas environment so that a few politicians and their cronies can get rich. I could continue, but that would just get me worked up and I'd prefer to have a nice, non-politically motivated day.
Cheers.

After the Faire
East Wind Games as seen from Pendragon Costumes at dusk on a Saturday night. All locked up tight, the product and woes of the day carefully tucked away. It's time to go get some food, some good company and some cheer.
This particular Saturday was to be celebrated as other Saturday's at Faire had not been. I'd just had the absolute best day, financially, that my small company had ever had and I was about to open a good bottle of wine with a good friend and my wife. A perfect celebration and a good end to a good day.

Sunday at Scarborough Renaissance Festival.
Christophe at Chess
I took a lot of photos today; a whole lot of photos. I settled on this one, because I love the reflection of the chess game in Christophe's glasses. This is Christophe the Insulter; he is far and away one of the most intelligent, witty & genuine individuals I have ever met and I am proud to call him friend. He also routinely, and easily, beats me at chess.
In this photo, he's playing against a young man named Tom, who is, by Chrisophe's own admission and many other accounts, quite the player. He gave Chris quite the pounding in this game although Chris did his best to hold his own. I must admit that there's a perverse pleasure I gain from seeing those who beat me so adroitly be handed their hat and shown the door. But, mostly, I just enjoy watching folks play chess on my sets each day; it brings me joy (and the occasional sale).
Cheers

Monday, and back in the office for another day at the grindstone. The job is difficult, it's challenging but at times can bear quite delicious fruit. But, in order for that fruit to come to bear, sometimes the days can be long. When that happens, you'll get photos of office supplies.
PENS, PENCILS & A HIGHLIGHTER
This collection of pens, pencils & highlighters is in easy reach of the keyboard right next to the phone. Stacks of notepads lie close to hand as well next to the address book. What an exciting life.

Stacked Cubes
This one is a game given to me by my dear friend, Katrina. It's quite the little puzzler; one that I have yet to crack in fact. There are four cubes, with four colours on each cube. The object is to orient all four cubes so that every side has the same colour. Hrmmm.

What an awful day.
I was aware, in the middle of the night, of shivering with no control while simultaneously soiling the bed with puddles of sweat. Marita Beth was working her fingers off and didn't actually come to bed until nearly 6am. By that time, I had a fever that was hovering in the 100 degree range. I called in emailed in sick and went back to sleep. At 11 am'ish (or so) she got up noticed just how hot I was and expressed her own concern. She took my temperature to find that it was at 101.7. Yeah, I certainly was sick. I spent the greater part of the day in bed, but even with all those dark clouds there had to be a silver lining, right? There was. During one of my awake and lucid periods, I checked my work email to see if there was anything pressing. Luckily there wasn't so I checked my personal email where there was a reminder that today was the Champion's League Final between Liverpool and AC MIlan. Although I didn't manage to stay awake for the whole thing (that's ok, I have it recorded), I did get to watch a chunk of it while it was happening. I'm sad for Liverpool, but what I saw of the match was pretty thrilling.
So, rather needless to say, I didn't get out of the house. Therefore, you get this:
Smooth as Belhaven's Best
This is one of many beer mats in my possession. I suppose, technically, it's two, but they are the same mat just arranged as to show both sides. This was a series that Belhaven did comparing the worlds suavest men to their cream ale. And, the mat's don' t lie. In Scotland there is nothing as smooth as Belhaven's Best.

Despite being completely rundown and out-of-sorts, I did go to work today. I'll most likely call it early, though, just for my own health. Driving home in rush-hour traffic would do me no good at all. Speaking of traffic, if I worked in the Dallas area, I'd use this:
Tracks on the TRE
These are tracks for the Trinity Railway Express which runs from downtown Ft. Worth to downtown Dallas (and soon on into Fair Park). It's an extremely inexpensive, effective method of travel between the two cities...and during rush-hour, it's faster. I don't utilize it now because the closest station to my house is more than half-way to work; it doesn't make time sense to use it right now. I do use it for travelling to and from Dallas Stars games, and if they get it open in time, I'll go to the State Fair of Texas on it. It's a coop between DART (in Dallas) and the T (in Ft. Worth). It's the closest thing we have real honest to goodness mass transit.
Cheers

Friday night. I was still sick, out-of-sorts and generally unhappy. I was unable to keep my dinner in me, but still I had to be at faire for final weekend.
We arrived, unloaded and I was just thinking about calling it a night (try to get a good nights sleep, you know?), when it occurred to me that I'd yet to take a photo. I went back downstairs and tried some long-exposures of the faire site at night. But there just wasn't enough ambient light to make them work. Therefore, I grabbed my little flashlight that I keep attached to my keyring and did this:
Ghostly Blue
A bit ghostly (or should I say ghastly as that's how I felt?), a bit surreal but groovy in final execution.

The penultimate day at Scarborough Faire for the 2007 season. Financially, it's been better than 2006 despite the very slow start we had. The new product lines helped, the new fixture arrangement helped; but I think the overall biggest factor was the staff. I had an excellent crew this year and could not have done it without them. Everyone of them gave and gave during the entire show. During the snow and bitter cold they came and gave; during the humid & hot they came and gave. I can't thank them enough.

Queen Anne's Lace from Behind
The final day at Scarborough Faire and what a way to end. We started the season in snow, why not finish it with a torrential downpour? This storm came suddenly and strongly and lasted with his fury for nearly an hour. I, along with approximately 15 folk were stuck inside East Wind Games, while Queen Anne's Lace performed on stage to a rapidly shrinking crowd. This photo is taken from the side window of East Wind Games looking at the back of Queen Anne's Lace. Having a store right next to a stage is both bane and blessing. When Queen Anne's Lace is on stage it's a blessing; elsetimes it borders on bane. The reason I say this is simply that Queen Anne's Lace vary their show making it fresh and beautiful every time. Most acts do not, thus after hearing the same patter 4 or 5 times a day for 17 days for years on end, it stales and pales. Perhaps some of them will read this and take the comments constructively -- please vary your shows at least a little; you give your customers a reason to come back.
Cheers

Tuesday. The day after Memorial Day and I'm back at work stuck into the daily grind. Today is the beginning of a long string of meetings at work that will last into July...and I'm sick. The only reason i went to work today was to ensure that I was not missing on the first of these meetings out of some perverted sense of loyalty that I possess. I made it through the day, barely. Stuck in a meeting all day afforded no real opportunity for any quality photo, so i took this one when I got home.
Beer Mat Stack
This is a stack of beer mats that I have collected. This is the unorganized, uncatalogued stack. When I go to a new bar or pub I like to take away with me a bar mat. When i can, I record on that mat the beer(s) I had along with the name of the bar and the city/country I am in at the time. I have beer mats from all over the world, it's a collection I am quite proud of. Some day, I hope to scan them all and et them catalogued online.

Wednesday and I spent the day at home or at the Dr's office. Finally I have some cortizone and some antibiotics to take to hopefully get over this wretched case of bronchitis I've contracted. Of course, now I'm stoked on drugs and loopy enough that I can't possibly drive or operate machinery of any sort with any sort of dexterity (that, sadly, includes the camera). Here's my photo for today. It worked so much better in my "altered state."

Another day confined to the house and another trip to the front yard for a photo. One day soon, I will no longer be sick and my photos will be a little more far-ranging again.
Standing Guard
This suit of armour stands in our front yard. I believe that Nicole gave it to Marita Beth some years back but don't necessarily recall the circumstances surrounding that. It stands guard staring at our front door at the base of the birdbath. It's one of the first things I see each morning as I head off to work, or on this particular day as I stepped outside to take a photo knowing I wasn't going to get very far.

Backyard Plaque
My final day at home; sick or not I return to work tomorrow to continue to earn my keep & my way in the corporate world. So, one more photo from the trove that is my house. This decorative wall-plaque hangs on the back fence. I'm not sure when we got it or from where, but I love it's elegance and its colour; and in this photo I love how it's lit by the sun.
Today is also the final day of the Arlington Highland Games. I've been told it's the largest clan gathering in the South and I've enjoyed going over the past 8 years or so. But, it certainly wasn't going to happen this year. Being on antibiotics I couldn't have enjoyed any beer or scotch, and being on prednizone means I couldn't have enjoyed being there anyway. A real depressor.

The following scene will be repeated over and over ad nauseum during the next 2 months.
Busy at Work
You see, I'm part of a narrow focus group with a clearly defined goal and a whole lot of paperwork. Over the next two months, the group of us will engage and discuss various vendors from various parts of the country in order to find solutions to our current out-of-date and antiquated methodologies. it's an important, yet highly time-consuming, task. I've yet to decide whether I'm proud to be part of the process or burdened because I am part of the process. Either way, it's my job and I'll do it to my utmost ability as it consumes a minimum of 24 hours of my time each week. Wish me luck.

Day one of three is the meeting of the brain-trust. This is the technical meeting where we deep-dive with a potential vendor looking at schemas and architecture and configurability and all the other things that IT weenies like to look at. I'm still pretty sick and likely contagious, so I hid at the back of the room so my constant hacking wasn't too much of an intrusion or irritant. I took that opportunity to snap this picture:

Sadly, this photo is far more defining than I would have ever wished it to be. During one of my many coughing fits yesterday, I spilled out my bag of Ricolas onto the table. What the hell I figured and trundled out my camera, too; never mind that I was in the middle of a functional presentation by a vendor and sitting in the middle of a room surrounded by a good 30 people (I was late and got the last seat available...the one no one else wanted).
My Drug of Choice
I snapped the quick pick, put the camera back in the bag and repackaged the Ricolos, keeping one for my own consumption. Sadly, they're just an interim fix, but I sure have sucked back a great many of these little bundles of joy in the past three weeks. As the title says, it's my current drug of choice.

This is the Flagship University, a corporate hotel & convention center where I am holed up for 27+ hours a week right now.

I couldn't be bothered to take a better photo today even though when MB and I went out for dinner I did take my camera. I just couldn't work up the necessary drive. I'm still sick and very weary. I'm not sleeping more than a couple of hours at a time due to nasty coughing/gagging fits and now I'm finding that many of my co-workers are coming down with some sort of crud.

Nary a picture taken that could even potentially be considered to be indicative of my day...in fact, upon consideration and research, no photos taken whatsoever. Experiment time:
Blue on Yellow
This is one of the many wine glasses available in my house filled 7/8s full with water. I set it in front of a yellow folder to give the nice background then set the focal length. Once staged, I took some blue food colouring and dropped it into the water to see it swirl and whirl about. I took a number of photos as the colouring settled, but I liked this one best. Even with the odd yellow reflections that look like dust specks, this one was best.

A day full of work. I got an email from a customer claiming that the site I maintain for them wasn't working. Since I'd needed to do some work on it anyway, I took the opportunity and jumped right in. Many hours later, it was bedtime and the only thing to come to mind was the fact that I'd not photo'ed the day.

I am so frustrated; I took many photos of 'Tia and her toy on this Sunday afternoon, only to find out -- too lat,e -- that all of them are blurry. The 1 1/2" screen on my Canon apparently isn't good enough to tell that the damn shot is out of focus. This was, sadly, the least blurry of the batch; at least her eyes seem to be in focus:
Tia's Soccer Ball
This is 'Tia. Normally she prefers a frisbee, but since some kind neighbour kid kicked this small soccer ball into my backyard she has taken to chasing it about and playing catch & fetch with it. She's quite the dribbler, she is and she can trap the ball better than half the players on my adult co-ed team.

Quarto. It's one of my favourite two-player strategy games. It was created and is sold by a French company called Gigamic. A very limited distribution model means that a lot of folks have never heard of the game much less actually seen one. I'm proud to say that East Wind Games carries the game and in recent months it has become one of our better movers surpassing even Cathedral in units sold.
Quarto
The game is for two players and the seemingly simple object is to get 4 in a row. It's only seemingly simple because 4 in a row may be achieved through a variety of ways (colour, height, shape &c.), which makes it much more thought-provoking than say, Captain's Mistress. The real twist to the game is caused by the fact that the piece you play is dictated by your opponent. Marita Beth bought this game for us many years ago and we've enjoyed it off and on durng that time (minus the couple of years when we had pieces missing). I was absolutely thrilled when I found the North American distributor for the game. It will remain in my product line for as long as it remains in print.
Cheers.

The other morning I was doing some work on my computer before actually heading into the office for a day-long meeting. Marita Beth came up behind me and said, "wow that's beautiful, let's go there" referring to the glorious landscape that webshots had decided to put on my desktop. Neither of us recognized it, so I went and looked at the title of the image expecting some northwestern US destination. Instead, to my delight & surprise, it was the view of a Scottish Loch in the Grampian Mountain range (northeastern Scotland). So, of course my immediate reply to Marita Beth's "let's go there" was "yes. Go pack the bags."
Grampian Mountains
We're still here.
I keep an over-sized map of the United Kingdom in my front hall because it is the home of my heart and I retreat there as frequently as finances allow. The next trip will, almost by necessity, take us to the Grampian's (although since I'm planning a December/January trip the roads may actually prevent this). I cannot recall, sadly, the exact name of the Loch in the photo (I'll look it up later and amend this), but it must needs be a destination for me now. I recall that in order to reach the viewpoint in the picture you had to drive down the B975 (or some other three-digit number) which means slow, windy road. My kind of travel.
Cheers.

One of Marita Beth's great solaces is gardening. i love it because she creates a beautiful environment that I get to come home to every day. This Wednesday, the 13th, the sun was breaking through clouds and creating rich shadow and deep light on things. The front garden (which is soon to undergo a massive change) caught my eye and I took a number of photos. I settled on this one:
Sunlight on Flowers
The yellow flowers dangling over the daisy stepping stone composition I liked best.

Wow.
Another boring picture from another boring drive; this one to work rather than from work as the previous days photo.
Weeds
Weeds. Right outside and at the height of my passenger side window. We've had a lot of rain in North Texas over the past few months. So much so that the drought status has been lifted and I've heard that most communities will not be instituting watering bans over the summer. Very unusual. But, then again, weeds the height of a sedan are pretty unusal, too.

The bottles are ready for filling and subsequently for emptying.
The Bottles are Ready
My very good friend "Just Matt" Young is embarking on Monday to a camp in upstate New York. The man is an opera singer of exceptional quality and I believe that this camp is to help keep him focused on that talent. This year - he left on a trip last summer, too - he chose to have his bon voyage party at the Rahr Brewery just south of downtown Ft. Worth. Every Saturday, Rahr stops the production line for 2 hours and invites all of Texas to come join them for free - yes, free - beer. It's good fun, and when the friends are there, the beer is flowing and the temperature is comfy, it's great fun!
Soon, after we leave and all the next day they'll be filling these, and many more bottles like them, with the frothy adult beverage that is beer.
Hooray, beer!
Cheers.

Sunday evening at home. A fun/frustrating day involving shitty Sprint customer service, a closed Movie Theatre, a wine bar without much class and finally relaxation at the house in front of a CSI: Miami episode. That's what we have here:
Wine Fog
Although I'd spent all day out and about, I did so without my camera. i was not inclined to leave the camera in a car in the Texas sun, and you're not allowed to take them into theatres any longer, so I just left it at home. Therefore, a photo from home; CSI: Miami through the curvature and colour of a green wine glass.

What happens when money gets wet? That's what we were finding out...accidentally. Laundered Jefferson
A few ones, tens and fives needed to dry out, so they got spread on the kitchen counter and left to air out for a bit. Safely ensconsed in the bank now, it was quite a mess and worth a photo.

Continuing with an accidental theme, here's a photo I took at work on the 19th:
Money Stash
This collection of coins is stashed away in my locked desk drawer and represents approximately 7 years worth of lunch-money change. Most days I use a credit card or just don't eat, so it's not really all that money, but in these days every wee bit counts. So, I keep it around and dip into it occasionally for the odd snack or drink during the work day.
Cheers.

I have GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease). I hate it. I have to take, every morning, a little pink pill in order to not be in disorientating distress all day. If I forget to take it, my day begins a rapid downhill trek. One of the few things I can do to ease that discomfort until I can get that little pink pill in my system is this:
Guinness Draught
Yep. Guinness, that fabulous, world-reknowned Irish stout calms my stomach and abates the pain, at least momentarily. Rumour has it that the Guinness Brewery is contemplating shuttering its operation in Dublin City Centre as the property, that they own on a 9000 year lease, is worth some £3 billion. I'd contemplate moving, too. Guinness is brewed in 50+ locations around the world, but it is the St. James's Gate Brewery that is their most esteemed location. I, personally, would hate to see it closed. At least not until I get to visit it.
Slainte!

There is a lot of supposition and a lot of history surrounding the lovespoon. This particular one was given to us on the occasion of our wedding. It is one of the first items that visitors see (thus the first on which they frequently comment) when they enter our house.

Only One Way to Go - Down
One way to hell.
That's where we are headed.
I took this photo looking through the driver's side window of my vehicle as I sat in an interminably long line at a traffic light. The only reason that the traffic was so bad at this particular time is because of all of the hideous construction being done in this area. Why you ask, is there construction? The answer simply is Wal-Mart. Yes, we have another Wal-Mart going in in our neighborhoodl; an unnecessary beastly burden that we as citizens of Arlington must endure because the City of Arlington council decided this is what was best for us. And apparently the perfectly acceptable divided road wasn't big enough to accommodate all the Wal-Mart traffic they are anticipating. So, they tore up the nice, green, beautiful median. dividing the four lanes of traffic in two. Now there are six lanes; and no median. I expect accidents.
I have read studies that indicate that the property values of homes and businesses in areas immediately surrounding Wal-Mart began to decrease almost immediately. So, not only are we losing our wonderful green strip of beauty that ran the length of the road and created a safety barrier. But we can also expect that the property values in our neighborhoods are going to plummet.
Cheers

USA v MEX
This photo was taken on 24 June 2007. It was a Sunday. I started the morning watching an excellent replay of an Arsenal versus Liverpool match as I prepared mentally to play in my own soccer game that evening. My first game since February. Sometimes it's important that I watch a football match before actually playing so that I can get in the proper mindset. However, Marita Beth wished also to go to the movies. So, we went to see Pirates of the Caribbean in the early afternoon, a movie that we'd not yet had opportunity to watch. Although funny, it was overly long, overly complex and not nearly as good as the first.
Back to soccer. After watching the movie, we went home, where I watched another football match (Bundesliga, I believe). Using these two football matches and the intervening moving as mental floss, I began to prepare physically for the game ahead. When the time came, we departed with our two dogs in tow. I managed to get to the field without my camera. So even though I only played approximately 20 minutes because of an injury I sustained, I didn't have opportunity to take a photograph. When we got home, the USA and Mexico game was on the Fox soccer Channel. So, since soccer had played such an important part of my day I decided what the heck. This is a photo I took.
Cheers

What the ...?
My Alka Seltzer is pink!
Pink
Not a very good photo, but it was taken in a hurry. I pulled the glass of water, opened the Alka Seltzer Cold & Cough (yes, I'm still sick and it seems to be getting worse rather than better at this stage), performed the wonderful "plop, plop, fizz, fizz" dance and woah! What the ...? My Alka Seltzer is pink! I ran to get the camera in the hopes of capturing something. I chose this photo because it did cause the most emotional reaction of my day (how sad is that?) not because it's the best or even most interesting photo. Just more indicative of my day and my life at the moment.

How exciting. Photos of Alka Seltzer two days in a row. What a life I lead. As I mentioned, I am still under the weather. I'm not full blown stay-at-home sick, but I am uncomfortable and dealing with a variety of issues and symptoms. Some of those symptoms can be chased away with Alka Seltzer of various kinds. This is Alka Seltzer original.
Alka Seltzer
This time around, I knew I was going to take a photo of the ol' "plop, plop, fizz, fizz" and set up before hand. The camera didn't behave. I could not get the focus to work either manually or auto. As you know, there is limited time during which a photo of Alka Seltzer fizz is worth anything, so this is what we get.

The view from my office looking out over the parking garage. During a rain storm...again.
Rain, again
The official rainfall for the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex is measured and kept at DFW Airport (less than 1 mile from where this photo was taken). The month of June officially saw 11.1" of rain. That makes this June the wettest June in over 70 years. It also makes this June the wettest month in the DFW area in 28 years. That's a lot of rain.
In all honesty, I cannot recall a July 2nd where the grass on my drive to and from work is all green. I can't recall a July 2nd where I have a lawn that's worth a damn. I can't recall a July 2nd where the temperature overnight was in the low 70's. If the weather was like this (including the rain) every summer, I'd be a lot less bitter about living in Texas.

Yet More Rain
Yet More Rain
This is, although not the hardest, certainly the most violent storm burst through which I have ever driven. I took this photo while driving through the bottoms. I had struggled to get the camera out moments before I took this photo, but was unable to secure it in time (it was, after all, raining very hard and there was no where to pull over). In the space of a minute (approximately) just a few minutes before this photo was taken, there were four lightning strikes within 100 (or so) feet of where I was driving. The sort of strike where you feel the electricity in the air at the same time that you both hear the boom and see the flash and the air goes a static green colour. Four of them in the space of 60 seconds. Thank goodness I was rubber-side down safe in my car.

A bit of a theme is creeping into the posts here, I'm afraid.
More Medicine
Yep, more medicine. This bunch of vitamin goodness is that glorious get-well wonderdrug, Vitamin C. As sick as I've been for the past 6 weeks, I've tried most everything, prescription & non, herbal and man-made. This stuff is the best and I'm doing my best to continue to take it, even as I heal myself and get better.

I went to see Transformers today. Transformers is a very typical Michael Bay movie and a very typical summer blockbuster flick. If you want to see some absolutely blow-you-away special effects or some frenetic, high-octane chases, then this movie is for you. If you want anything remotely approaching cerebral or containing a storyline that is actually a plot rather than just a vehicle for spectacular explosions, then choose another movie.

It is nice to come across a new diary that I have not visited before. So, I'v spent almost an hour browsing through from the beginning, instaed of uploading and maintaining my own diary. Nice diversity of shots, even when you are scraping the barrel to get a daily shot, like we all do, occasionally.

I agree with Jellia about the photo of Twig, also the colourful wine glass, the stauary in the English garden, some of your sunsets and interesting Faire pictures. You sure have a busy life, so well done with trying to keep up with the diary.

That said, I'd better grab my camera and go out and get a daily shot myself.

Thanks RobW for the nice comment.
I went to see the Texas Rangers lose to the Angels tonight. It was a lovely night, especially for a July 5th game, with a slight breeze, a soft drizzle and free beer. Right. I was invited to a private office suite along with my boss, his mother and another friend. The offices of my boss's mother's financial consultant overlook centre field. Quite lovely really. But, I neglected to take my camera into the park. So, on the drive home, I attempted to take a number of photographs of a portion of Arlington I rarely get to anymore. They all looked so much better in the small preview window. This is the best of the lot:

I spent a most miserable day debugging an archaic system about which I know next to nothing. Both I and on-site management were hamstrung nearly every time we turned around by the presence and contracts with the local worker's union. Unable to "take work away from the union" by doing it myself I was at the same time forced to wait for interminable periods because they didn't have the man-power to help me. Yeah, very frustrating. This photo portrays my emotional state as I truly did feel fenced in by my situation:

Saturday. After a week like this one, I needed sleep and slept I did. I'd intended to go into work this morning to try and get some additional work done. I changed my mind. Instead I went here:
Movie Tavern
In the early-mid eighties I worked in a movie theatre. My Assistant manager and good friend at the time had this concept about movie theatres that he felt would revolutionize and revitalize the movie-going experience. He envsioned a theatre with a wait-staff, a full kitchen and a bar. Twenty years later, the Movie Tavern opened in my neighbourhood. Although not exactly what my friend had proposed to me in his numerous out-loud thinking/planning sessions, it is a welcome, wonderful way to watch movies. In the summer, with my wife gone, I see several movies a week at the Movie Tavern. It's a good way to while away some time in much-needed air conditioning.
Oh, and note the distinct lack of clouds in the sky.
Cheers.
