Today's Photo: Blue Ridge Butterfly

Blue Ridge Butterfly, originally uploaded by Gene Bowker.

The butterfly (I'm not sure if it is a he or a she) cooperated by spreading out it's wings for me...

I think I took 10 or so photos of it in a row, 3 of which were good enough to share.

Photo of the Day: Stylized Crossing

Photo of the Day: Stylized Crossing

With today's photo software, you can take almost any photo and turn it on it's side or to any other angle. This is great, but so is turning the camera over when you are out taking the picture in the first place.

I've taken a lot of pictures of this crossing sign in Folkston, GA over the years, so each time I am there, I try to find a different way to approach it.

Life Magazine - Wartime photos

Sorry about the wires through the picture. The color shot shows the great color scheme on the building.

The Palmetto Theatre in Hampton, SC has been restored to it's Art Deco brillance.

I need to get back down at night to get the neon all lit up, but it is an impressive site even by day.

Happy Anniversary Cindy

Happy Anniversary to my beautiful wife Cindy. 13 years ago today, we said our vows on Rosemond Bridge in Madison County, Iowa on a hot summer day. "The Bridges of Madison County" will always hold a special charm for us as it was the first thing we found in common.

We've lived in a variety of places, been through a lot together, but I can honestly say that you were the best thing that ever happened to me. I love you very much and honestly more and more each day.

Thank you for 13 wonderful years and I look forward to many, many more.
