December, 2009. Preparation of beds and dinner for the (approximately) 65 guests who spend the night in this temporary shelter. I started volunteering at a night shelter around 1996 when I first purchased my own house and it hit me how fortunate I was to have a house, let alone a place to stay at night. This particular shelter is in downtown Atlanta and is open from November through March.

Please consider contributing to a charity of your choice this holiday season. And if you don't have one here are a few charities to investigate:

Metro Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless

America's Second Harvest

Click to Give @ The Hunger Site

The Atlanta based organization, Hosea William's Feed the Hungry which inspired others.

Feed the Hungry (national page)

National Coalition for the Homeless


My apologies to those who may find this preachy but if the subject matter serves as a reminder to donate to others less fortunate than it will be worth it.
Thank you for viewing and for your consideration. Happy Holidays.

For Rent

This photo was taken in 2009; didn't realize this house we "almost bought" was used in the first episode of The Walking Dead series. I knew some of the filming locations in my neighborhood but didn't know about this locale until now. :)

Please visit this site for more location photographs:

Hard to believe we looked at buying this house 6 years ago. It was empty then as the planned renovations stopped due to some conflict between the owner and contractor. We backed out as we thought it was going to cost too much money (for our tastes) to fix and could not reach an agreement with the seller. I don't think the house ever sold.

Looks like they fixed up the structure a bit for the episode. :)


A photo of this house taken and posted to flickr in 2009:

Straight out of the camera (no photoshop). I have had this Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 for about 6 months and didn't know it had a setting for a pinhole camera so naturally I decided to test it out the moment I realized it. :) The light was ading as it was near" dusk but I liked what I saw.
