The only problem with taking time off is that you are twice as busy upon returning. As such I have little time for wit at the moment and will instead give you stuff to look at until I get time to put words to screen.
He is our hero

Some steel hanging around a dockyard
Pretty steel that would give you a hernia if you move it.

I figured a picture from the other side of the railing would look nice.
Pictures can be fun when you go over to the other side

A Black-Crested Night Heron bullseyed a perch from teh water as I had my camera out. I like good timing.
Fishing, bird style

Something about this old boat in drydock caught my eye.
Hey look!! A rusty door!

These were taken on Wednesday night as a part of our Flickr group meetup. Good times, good pictures, beer and wings......all is good.

And now some camping pics

What swimming would look like at 6 in the morning.
All the swimmers are sleeping, but the dock is still there.

This is rush hour at Grundy Lake. Far better than the city I have to say.
Hey look!  A traffic jam!

The all time, most portable, camp entertainment.
After the sun goes down it's time to chill out and enjoy the company.

Insomnia makes for early rising, which in turn makes for pretty scenes.
Morning has broken and it seems to have set the lake ablaze!

Stoke up the fire and let the good times roll.
Speaking blazes......It's redneck cable!

And as always there are plenty more lurking on my flickr page.

Oh and one for Fizzy!
Reflective Ducky

Talk amongst yourselves, I'll be back later.

Groovy pics. Spiders... EEEK! I would have to use the super spycam telephoto (you can purchase that at to shoot that one. All of them are inspiring but I love the mist rising from the water and the drydock boat the best.

I love these pictures. I especially like the ones from camping. I think there is something beautiful about water.

This took a long time to download all these bee-utiful pictures but they were well worth it (curses, dial-up!)

I like the heron, I changed my mind...I like the 6 am swim, wait...I like the sunrise...let's not get hasty...I think I like the duck...

PS...does your mother know that you were on the wrong side of the railing to take that picture? Don't worry the mom...number one rule.

Awesome shots. I'm especially taken with the bird flying over the water - that one would win competitions.

Okay, love your photography.

If my novel "Morning Son" ever gets published, it's that mist rising off the lake shot that I'd love to use for the cover of the book. You would be willing to sell it to a publisher, right?

Good timing indeed!

Have you ever heard the one about the golfer who got a hole in one? His friends told him, I can't believe it, you're so lucky!"

And the golfer said, "I know! And you know, the more I play golf, the luckier I get!"

Lovely photos, especially the heron in flight. I am quite jealous.
