Now that we are firmly settled in out Fairfax City townhouse, the next focus is deciding where our next, and hopefully last home will be. The one thing that we are “fairly” sure of is it won’t be in Northern Virginia. Too many reasons to go into here, but unless the home of our dreams at a price we could pay appears, it’s not going to happen. So, we have been driving around Virginia, doing the “Home Tour” as we call it. Last weekend was kind of an extreme version of that premise as almost 2 tankful’s of gas were consumed in our travels across the area. Friday had us…

back to the pi’tures….

This weblog/site was erected primarily to discuss all things photographic. Well, as many folks experience, life has kinda gotten in the way of late. Luckily, many of the perturbations are working themselves out, leaving time and mental facilities available for the artistic pursuit of photography. Sometime last summer, in the midst of the Coronavirus crisis, a kind of life summary was begun with this post, Time. It was all well and good, and then, yet again, life interceded. The second part of the diatribe was dutifully started, but honestly I cannot seem to corral enough gumption to truly finish it. The post was to start with the early Fuji imagery…
