Memorial Day has special meaning to many. Here is the serious face of a small child with his hand over his heart. I could not resist the shot. As a photographer I sometimes exempt myself from the duties of a citizen, like hand over heart and standing at attention. Especially when I see patriotic training and forbearance has taken over and has been taught to our young people. These are the people of the future.

It is always a rule to carry a camera at all times no matter how inconvenient it is. Not a stunning place, but one that will bring back fond memories for me. The entire family out for a walk and not really being aware of our surroundings this wonderful sunset comes along. As I looked up I notice that several photographers has gathered to take the shot. I shuttered that I did not have a camera and then I remembered my Leica DLUX 4. I had it ready to shoot and using the program mode I was able to capture this shot. It capped off a perfect afternoon. No stress, or mess, just fun and time.
Taken with my Nikon 8008s in Hopkinton, MA. It is literally a road that goes nowhere which is very common in MA. I took about twelve photos this day but this was the one I liked the most. It reminds me of where I am in life and lets me understand that there is precious time to do the things I want to do. I worked for a very large company during this time and how fortunate I was to have many personal days to do just what I wanted. Of course, that was the whole purpose. I never minded going back to work. If I had stayed in MA. I would have worked for Bose forever. What a great company and what a great product.
Since I have been back to Illinois I have not found the same color in the trees. I think it is something in the air there.
Our house when the snow came. Just keeping up with the snow was a major issue. I heard that this was the most snow we had since 1978. Hard to believe but more is on its way this evening. I did this photo without a tripod using my Nikon D70s. My Nikon Page Just a quick shot to remember. I like looking at those web pages that show the old days and big snows. So maybe these will be one on those pages people can look at in the future.
