The company I work part time for has an annual Golf Outing and Picnic in the Halliburton County Region of Ontario, Canada (Yes, I am the lone American Employee). They are a great bunch of people and we have a lot of fun together, though you have to be thick-skinned as an American in this group (it's all in good fun). Here's some photos from the weekend:...
Got to spend another long weekend with my parents and some friends at our family lake house in the Adirondacks and thought it would be nice to share some of the views. We had torrential rains on Saturday, causing the lake to rise 24 inches over the next day, but by Sunday it was clear and sunny for the rest of the extended weekend. Every time I go there, it gets a little harder to leave:...
When I first spotted this Eagle (from a distance), I thought it was a Great Horned Owl because of one of the tree branches behind its head. But when I looked through my lens, I saw this … … and then the rain came down heavily, and, we both left. © A. Mac/A.G.
My date is 10 minutes late...as usual! Well, at least I got a good table, but if he stands me up it'll be the last time! Well! It's about damned time you showed up! Hey! We had reservations damn it! Still, the downstairs service seems good? Oh no! It's all only left overs from above! Just forget it!

I have absolutely no idea why I have taken so many pictures of Pelicans when we were on cruises. They just strike me as very strange birds and in Cabo San Lucas they are everywhere around the harbor.

First is the Church of Santa Prisca as seen from across the gorge in Taxco, Guerrero, Mexico. It's really more of a Cathedral and is known more formally as The Parroquia de Santa Prisca y San Sebastían. Taxco is a Silver mining town about a 4 hour drive inland from Acapulco. This is distant front view photo of the Church of Santa Prisca as seen with the much older Santisima Trinidad Chapel in the foreground. Below is a rather ornate family shrine at a small clay works...

For anyone who has never stood and assimilated in his or her soul, the spiritual essence of such a place … … my condolences … and a question. "What the hell are you waiting for?" Really!

These are from a cruise that my wife and I took I believe in 2006. The camera was a joke, but I tried to fix them up with Photoshop Element 7 and hope they turned out satisfactorily. This is coming up on the harbor entrance to Acapulco in the mid-morning. The entrance can be seen on the photo's left, but I think the hills are beautiful in their own right. This is the large Cross that stands over the harbor and city. Of course most people know that most Mexicans are Catholic and...

Blue sky day - mid 90's temperature - a morning photo-walk A beautiful day today, so we walked to the older gated community around the corner to seek our usual shaded spot to sit and enjoy the surroundings. A clear blue sky day is not that common here, so it was something to enjoy. 1. Walk past these stone monuments and the steps that lead up to the "rocky road" I posted previously. 2. To reach the pleasant shaded spot to sit and enjoy the surroundings while being...

Many puppy fathers pay little attention to theier offspring, however several years ago my Shih-Tzu Sally had four puppies with my now late Shih-Tzu Harry and he was drop dead in love with them from the second they were born. As each was born he was licking and cleaning them more then Sally and snuggled with them and her, even giving her kisses. Now you have to understand Harry never gave anyone kisses. In the more the 13 years we had him he did not give myself or my wife one single kiss....

Yet another walking tour in my neighbourhood - a rocky road and more May 1st - a holiday here, and another sunny day for a walk. These photos were taken in an older gated residential development just around the corner from my home, so not only do I have a few magnificent verdant university campuses nearby to tour, but the whole local community is a pleasure to behold and enjoy. Birds are singing cheerfully all along the way, although hiding in the trees. 1 Tranquility...
