Gas and Go

Leave a comment

Locally gas stations have been rather high lately so I took a trip up to one that is always reasonable in Sykesville. Instead of hopping back on Route 32 I decided to cruise through town and grab a few frames. It was early and the Farmers Market folks were just setting up.

Its been a berry berry berry good Sunday.

It hadn’t gotten too hot yet. Well the sun hadn’t risen on some areas of town yet. I love that time of day in the summertime. I met a nice woman setting up her tables for her handmade jewelry and had a quick talk on politics and what was right and wrong with the world.

I continued to walk the town for a short bit but remembered we were going to visit my mother in-law who just made her return home. Was good to see her comfortable again.

So I didn’t do as much shooting as I had hoped for this weekend so that is a good reason to pick up the cameras during the week also this week.

I’ll see what I can get started at tonight. I noticed they had just bailed the field of hay near my home and some of those looked nice scattered across the field this evening. I’ll go back for a few shots of those tomorrow.

Overall it was a pretty good day. I’m kind of tired because I wasn’t able to get the sleep I needed but will try to do better tomorrow. I’m starting to worry about that affecting my overall health badly so its more of a priority for me than in the past.

I love the sign on the left next to the Maryland flag.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • If your lucky to live a long life the biggest bet you will make is when to retire.
  • You know that NBA players can’t have a conversation with each other without putting their hand over their mouths. Do they all have bad breath? Could they be saying things they maybe shouldn’t be saying? Could it be a gag where they are pretending to talk and see how many cameras they can get to take a picture or tape of it? All I know is it looks bad.
  • Writing is easy. Coming up with something good to say isn’t so much.
  • I love short work weeks.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
