Sweden 2014
(So Far)

It's hard to believe that I moved to Sverige in January of this year. I've now worked my way through a few seasons here and am staring down winter. While I've been lax in updating this blog I've not been remiss in taking photographs. Here's a variety of them from this year.

Muster of Eyes Collection

The title of this post is just put together from the names of the three events I attended recently. I'm too lazy to come up with one that works any better and it does sound kind of important. The weekend of June 15 this year was a big one for those in the Detroit area [...]

Go Bathe Yourself In Fire

You fought hard and you saved and learned, but all of it's going to burn. And your mind, your tiny mind, you know you've really been so blind. Now's your time burn your mind. You're falling far too far behind. Oh no, oh no, oh no, you gonna burn! Fire, to destroy all you've done. [...]

Of Muskets and Manned Flight

I've accumulated some more photos from disparate sources. Niagara-on-the-Lake in Ontario, Canada has its share of hyphens. Despite that it is a rather large tourist attraction hosting some of the best vineyards in the Great White North. Besides the trodden grapes the area has a great deal of history including action during the war of [...]

Don’t Fade Away

Walter P. Chrysler rescued automobile manufacturers before creating his own eponymous dynasty. During his reign Chrysler was known as the “engineer’s automobile”. Often stodgy in style they just as often led the industry in mechanical innovations. Like all long-lived companies there is a lot of history and lore which can be drawn upon to illustrate [...]

Random

I've taken a lot of photos since my blog has gone silent. So....RANDOM PHOTO TIME!

Back In Business

The site is running reasonably well again so I'll celebrate with a link to an article on fountain pens from a Manila paper. If you read closely you may see a familiar name. Just click here.

Fortress Of Focus

So my blog is broken. I've not posted anything in so long maybe it decided to commit suicide or at least invite the grim specter of death to come a knockin' early. I have managed to get things functioning OK but the plugin I use for displaying images still refuses to load. 'Tis a wasteland [...]

Eye Candy

Hershey, PA is the land of chocolate or something. Well, not really since nothing seemed to be built with cocoa anywhere within the city limits. I expected something a bit more like this.  Still, it was founded on and continues to subsist on the tasty, tasty slopes of chocolate kisses (among other diversified products). As [...]

Baltanical

When I think of Baltimore television shows like Homicide: Life On The Street and Hot L Baltimore or the movies of John Waters mold my vision of that coastal city. All stellar works that stick in my mind but not a rounded representation of the place. Now I find myself living about an hour from there [...]
