School children, Napo River, Amazon rainforest Peru. 1994.
Tri-X film. Printed full frame with a filed negative carrier. The uneven border around the print is a result of the filed negative carrier being exposed to the darkroom enlarger light when the print is not cropped. I guess it's a darkroom special effect way before photoshop. :)

A stop in the north Georgia mountains
My daughter had a great time and after she went to bed, we relaxed on the porch handing out candy to the older kids. I didn't think I'd shoot a ghostly variation of "Whistler's Mother"! :) I adjusted the contrast and cropped in a but I but did not photoshop anything into the photo.

Some photos from our successful Father/Daughter Girl Scout camping weekend at Misty Mountain. This was the first time just the two of us camped; it was fun & busy. I didn't photograph every activity - I wished I got a photo of Katie riding her bicycle to breakfast - but here are a few images.
Horse Back Riding was fun.

I did not know David McReynolds. He was a neighbor I will never get a chance to know due to him being killed last week.
The statement below is taken from this Grant Park Neighborhood Association (GPNA) facebook post.
In Loving Memory of David McReynolds, March 3, 1958 – July 7, 2012
Funeral arrangements for Grant Park shooting victim David McReynolds have been made for this Saturday, August 4th, 1pm, at
Alexander Memorial AME Church,
287 Augusta Avenue, S. E.
Atlanta, GA United States 30315
David McReynolds was a Grant Park resident, known for his quiet and polite demeanor, and was known to many for his frequent walks around the neighborhood. He was a Viet Nam veteran and prolific reader who studied the Bible and the Quran. David also enjoyed writing and was interested in politics and history, and particularly the civil rights movement.
Ironically, David recently earned his Certificate In Nonviolence Studies.
David McReynolds was 54 years old and lived on Augusta Street in Grant Park, two blocks from the park. He survived by his life partner Angela Sheat, his father Grady McReynolds, sisters Angela Bradford, Dorothy Smith and Daneyse McReynolds, his godfather Arthur Wallace and “sister” Sheila Wallace.

Another facebook post of this memorial.
The following was written by Grant Park neighbor, Jackson Faw - the complete post can be found on the
GPNA facebook page.
David McReynolds was one of our neighbors. He walked down our street every day to the small grocery store at the corner of Ormond and Martin to buy his “numbers.” David was friendly to the granddaughters of our neighbor Josephine, whose two girls sit in the front yard every day and know the names of everyone’s dog that walks by their house.
David was 54 years old and lived on Augusta Street in Grant Park, two blocks from the park.
He was a kind man who was friendly and harmful to no one. According to the police, he was killed by three youths because he refused to give them money, or perhaps he didn't have any money to give them. David was shot in the chest and left to die on the sidewalk just around the corner from our house.
Josephine and her girls heard the gunshot in the middle of a beautiful, sunny afternoon. The body of the neighbor that walked by and said hello every day was laying on the sidewalk just feet from their house as the police investigated the crime scene.
Yesterday Haley got a basket of food and a card, and I left to find David’s house to speak with his family and offer our sympathies. David lived with Sheila and Arthur Wallace, who considered him part of their family. Arthur was David’s godfather, and Sheila says that “David was like a brother to me.”
On Thursday afternoon, Sheila came upon the crime scene just a block from their house. Someone told her that a boy had been shot, and Sheila’s first thought was how horrible it was going to be for the person that had to deliver the news to boy’s mother.
An hour or so later, a detective knocked on her door to tell Sheila that David was the victim.
Sheila and Arthur told me that their life has been changed forever. David helped with household chores and kept Arthur company. “If he hadn’t been killed he’d be sitting right there watching TV with us” she told me. “I don’t know what we’re going to do.”
When bartender John Henderson was murdered in 2009, the entire city was outraged. Before the trial that convicted John Henderson’s killer, dozens of gang members were arrested by a joint FBI and GBI task force.
It’s not likely that Sheila and Arthur Wallace can afford to put up billboards in memory of David McReynolds. Publicity related to his death was scant at best; the news reports are already fading.
There is no need to state the obvious. I only hope that this sad, sick, senseless killing will not be forgotten by our community. It will never be forgotten by those who knew and loved David McReynolds.

Taken with my daughter's toy camera. I like the quaintness and vintage look the lo-fi camera produces.
Some more toy camera photos at the beach.

The non-symmetrical lens attachment is an add-on lens cap which automatically opens and closes when the camera is turned on/off. The lens cap which came with the camera was "manual", meaning I had to keep it in my pocket or stored somewhere when photographing.

(there is something in the sky upper left of the roof line if you can view this larger)
I enjoy but don't normally photos of sky patterns here but I was taken with this unique cloud formation of an approaching storm over our back yard.
