I love the Maryland Renaissance Festival! I think the first time I went to this event was the second or third year when it was held in Columbia. That was more than 30 years ago. It has since moved from Columbia’s Symphony Woods to Crownsville, and is a huge event, running from the end of August to the middle of October. Since we moved back to Maryland at the end of last year, I am finally able to attend again. And it has changed…
Hey, all! I finally found both the time and energy to process some photos from my new camera. I went on a little outing last weekend, looking for interesting places and things to photograph. I remembered that there are several wooded areas near my home where the woods and a stream are literally steps away from the edge of the road. The real challenge was finding a place to pull over, so I could get some nature shots.
Hey, all! Thought I’d write a quick post just to assure you all that I’m still kicking, even though my recent misadventures in quilting have not yet been rectified. Anyway, I saw this the other morning, and I had to pull off to the side of the road and shoot it. With my phone. ::roll eyes::
While visiting Los Angeles for our 2nd oldest daughter’s “Geektastic Nuptial Extravaganza” wedding celebration, I took a bunch of photos of random objects and such, which I have added here for your viewing pleasure. Click on a thumbnail to view one image, or click through to see them all.
[edit: Forgot to mention, I took all of these with my phone, not with my usual point-and-shoot camera. So, they’re not all the sharpest images, but it was what I had at the time. Plus, it was easier to upload some of these for a game of “Where’s Lisa” on G+ with a few of my friends.]
The wonderful thing about having a little digital camera is that I can take it (almost) anywhere, and I can shoot lots of pictures. At least until the battery dies, or the card fills up. Whichever comes first.

Sorry I’ve not posted for a while. I’ve been so busy the past two weeks, trying to get ready for, then traveling to (and from) our 2nd oldest daughter’s wedding celebration in Los Angeles. Why was it called the “Geektastic Nuptial Extravaganza”? Read on to find out…
I have decided that I need a new camera. To be precise, I need a much better camera than the one I typically use. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my little Olympus FE-340 digital. It takes “good enough” (i.e. “snapshot”) pictures, and is compact enough to take just about anywhere. I have 2 extra batteries for it, and the XD card holds about 1,000 photos at a pretty decent resolution.
So, it should come as no surprise to anyone who knows me that we recently moved from the Pacific Northwest to the Mid-Atlantic. We had a mild winter here, but we are now getting slammed with an unbearably hot and humid summer. The high temperatures have been in the mid-to-upper 90s for the past couple of weeks. Top that off with severe thunderstorms that left about a million people without power last weekend, some of whom are still without power today, and you can see that it all adds up to a whole lot of discomfort. Luckily, we were only minimally affected by those storms, and we’ve had power and AC all week.
The other morning, I woke up to a bit of fog and mist floating across the neighborhood. As the sun came up, this happened:
