Chattahoochee River – 2015

Land-locked during the last half of 2015 and unable to get out paddling on the Chattahoochee River, the time did offer me additional chances to hike the many trails along the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area (CRNRA).

Kingsized Holiday Jubilee – Dec 2015

I guess the first thing I should say about the Kingsized Holiday Jubilee with Kingsized and the Dames Aflame is that it is held in the Little Five Points (L5P) area of Atlanta. Brought to our attention by our friends Lucius and Danielle, think of this show as a family friendly Christmas pageant with a… Read More Kingsized Holiday Jubilee – Dec 2015

The Other Colors of Fall – Dec 2015

On a walk in the woods, I captured some of the muted colors and textures of late fall. These photos are taken from the banks of the Chattahoochee River a wee bit north and west of Atlanta.

Shoulder Surgery Update – August 2015

As many of you know, I recently had shoulder surgery, and I wanted to provide an update. Now there seem to be conflicting and contradictory stories about how I hurt my shoulder in the first place.
