Flowers

I just bought a new camera and three new lenses (Nikon D200, 17mm-55mm f2.8 80mm-200mm f 2.8, 50mm f 1.8) . I needed to see what kind of detail I could get so I walked outside of my sisters house and shot these. Let me know what you think…

All were shot with the 17mm-55mm 2.8 Nikor at 2.8 Iso 100

Back….

Ok it’s been a long time since I posted. Seven months it’s been. Why the down time? I guess I wanted to be a spectator on the internet for a while. Got tired of the dailly content push of a blog. Got tired of trying to get more hits. Anyway I am back….

Enjoy the new pics.

Vacation Post 7-25-06

Long drive and lots of wide open spaces….  Did I mention it was a long drive? Well my vacation is almost over. One more day of driving and stopping to snap some photos.

From the Fox Hole 7-16-06

NOW ASK YOURSELF:

HUMMMMMMMMMMMM, …..IF YOU DID THIS, WHAT DO YOU THINK WOULD HAPPEN TO YOU,
AND WOULDN’T YOU BE  ALL OVER THE NEWS?

IF THE ENEMY OF MY ENEMY IS MY FRIEND.  THEN WHY IS UNCLE SAM IN BED WITH
SOMALI WARLORDS, I GUESS HE LIKES IT RUFF, RUFF.

I could never understand this:  Clinton’s  action in Somalia was seen as a failure see [ BLACK HAWK DOWN].  It was, as no one thought we couldn’t see Viet Nam guerrilla  tactics being used in Africa.   Tactics, is what the Warlords would used and used them well they did, “Never Leave a Ranger Behind” was the chink in our amour and they used this to their advantage and we left.

At the time The Right Wing blamed Clinton for our being in Somalia and our failure. Fine.

I do not suffer fools gladly,  however, I forgave my Right Winged Countrymen and their   ignorance because  history for most of them is what you save on Tivo.

Most don’t realize it was George 41 who put US  troops in Somalia. George 41, ordered US troops in Somalia  in the same month of November, G41 lost his  presidential re-election loss.  G41 did so for a noble cause, for peace to stop the violence that had taken over Semolina.

Clinton continues the policy and the rest is in the movie BLACK HAWK DOWN. The Right Wing Orgy Commences,  Limbaugh and  Fox News are lathered up  for months.

Fast forward 10 years more or less,  G43 pays off the same warlords who were responsible for handing us our heads in Somalia, with 18 Army Rangers Dead. And the Right Wing Rubes have said nothing, their news coverage is as dry as my aunts “Private Summer”,  not to mention the Liberal Media has failed to link the dots, I guess they ran out of the fat crayons.

And what happens?  The news is still inside the box, no analysis of how we get anywhere.  We just arrive. The media does not want to  have their presidential access taken away, so the Media makes no waves. As long as the mantra is repeated “WE do everything for Fighting the War on Terror”, the Devil is pleased, the Righteous prays to the Gospel of Wealth, and the soul of non- believers are prayed for. And we all forget what we saved on
Tivo last night and just erase it in the morning because we just don’t have time to watch the past.

TONY SNOW JOB

Snow-Job, and  his  arrival as White House Press Secretary,  is a  stroke of genius. A Dyed in the wool believer, his service to the cause reads like GOP Mercenary. From Public Radio to FOX News , Fill-in for Rush Limbaugh and O’ Reilly. I am not mad at  Snow-Job, he gives it back as he gets it and his “Snow Balls” are the biggest in The Room.  In comparison, if McClellan and Snow-job  where captain of  ships,  McClellan was the captain of the USS Minnow and marooned in the middle of nowhere.  Whereas, Snow-Job is the captain USS Iowa and is moored quietly in Tokyo Bay just so everyone knows, “Surrender because what time is it??!!  It’s  Snow Job Time”.  Next question. Snow-Job is the smartest move the Bush Administration has  made since dis-owning Katherine Harris,  and “Kenny Boy” Lay. Shame about, “Kenny Boy” Lay, he is still G43 biggest Contributor in 2000 and no one shows up to see him off, Folks can be so….I don’t know… GOP.

Snow Job, beware of the garden path,  if you hear of an earthquake in Yorba Linda, resign and site your family for your reasons of departure because someone Yorba Linda and it’s not Poseidon.

Regardless of Party or Lack there Of.

Fight your fight, and always with your A-Game.
