Three Random Images from Scotland Last August

Untitled (Scotland)

Skara Brae

Standing Stones-Scotland

Italian Chapel on Orkney Isle

John O’Groats, Scotland

On mainland Scotland, the northern most point.

Dunrobin Castle, Scotland

Dunrobin Castle and grounds. Oldest castle in the Highlands ( overlooking the Moray Firth)with 189 rooms.

Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle-Pt.II

Culloden, Scotland

Blair Athol Distillery, Pitlochry, Scotland

Visiting Scotland wouldn’t be complete without a visit to a distillery. Blair Athol is very old and, although I don’t imbibe, the tour was fascinating and entertaining.

Dundee, Scotland Pt. II

Dundee, Scotland

A brief walkabout around Dundee, Scotland. We were only there for an afternoon and evening so ……..not much time to explore.

Wandering around St. Andrews, Scotland

Scottish Harbors

Fair warning: Scotland is 4/5th’s surrounded by water. I have a lot of coastal photos to post!

Tenth Anniversary of this Photoblog

Today marks the 10th anniversary of this photoblog. I’d like to thank my Followers and Visitors for stopping by from time to time to see what I’ve been up to. In particular, I want to thank three people who were instrumental in encouraging me to take the first step into the waters of online exposure of my work:

Deb: A very dear online friend from the Daily Strength health website. Deb confessed to me that she actually was taking my images from DS and using them for background and screensavers on her PC. That confession opened up a dialogue between us that, I believe, was frank and personally helpful for us both. Deb lived in upstate New York. Sadly, in November of 2008 she passed away. I started the photoblog on this date in 2009, four months after her passing. She never got to see this blog take off of the launchpad. During moments, over the past ten years, when I wanted to just pack it in and stop posting, I think back to her encouraging words. It helps me sustain something that I feel is a journey, with no destination.

Sue: I met Sue under similar circumstances on the Daily Strength site. Sue was also friends with Deb on the site, so maybe there was some collusion between those two to make my photography more public. Sue lives in Gloucester, MA. and still, from time to time. enjoys what I create and has kind words for my work. I think she gets the content or ‘vision’ of what I do better than most. Thanks, Sue!!

Dianna: My wife of nearly 45 years. Once I ran the idea of doing this photoblog by her she was all for it. She’s listened to my frustrations over just ‘what am I doing with this blog’ for a decade. She follows my postings religiously and hits the ‘Like’ button, even though I am sure some of my images confuse her :-). Thanks for 10 years support!!fullsizeoutput_495d

Thanks for all of your support!!!

November 6th & 7th.

Our son’s book will be released Tuesday, November 6th. It’s available on Amazon.

Wednesday  evening he’ll be at the Greenlight Bookstore in Brooklyn for a conversation and signing event with Tobias Carroll at 7:30PM. I’ve read the book and it is amazing and makes sense of the seemingly chaotic and random history of rock n roll. Laced with interviews and more, it’s a real page turner for music buffs and musicians alike.

If you live in  or near Brooklyn, stop by and say hello. I live in Seattle, otherwise I would be going. Ian is very approachable and has my self deprecating sense of humor.

PS: I took the back cover photo and the one you see on the bookstore page, via the link above.
