A couple of new albums created on Flickr....

This has been a project for a while - I finally got around to putting together a set called Did they have cell phones back then?  Cell phones and cameras anachronistically used by people portraying an era when...well...they didn't have those things.














I didn't know this was a project until I realized I could make an album out of people who were Masters of Their Domain.

















And I took a tour of Bluff City Cemetery in Elgin yesterday.  These are proofs of some of the shots posted in my "other" Flickr account. These are not edited or culled - just a collection of the SOOC photos from the walk.  You'll probably see one or two shots eventually showing up on my main Flickr page and this blog in the next month or so.

In Flanders fields

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day

Kate picked this flower at our annual Flower Service at the Unitarian Universalist Society of Geneva today.  I got one too, but Kate's was WAY more photogenic.  She graciously allowed me to shoot this one.

More info about the Flower Service is in the description for this shot, taken a few years ago.
