  • Relative Truth

    Found an interesting comment on an article the state of Georgia observing the Confederate Memorial Day…. The truth of history means very little to those who are dead set against learning anything from it.

  • Athensdating.org

    I noticed a little black and white sign: “Single? athensdating.org” a while ago. A couple weeks ago it came up in conversation. Today I saw it again. So I visited the site.

    I felt conspicuously under dressed downtown tonight. Lots of people out and about wearing either 208,0,0 n 0,0,0 or 153,0,0 n 255,255,255.

  • Night Fairy

    Took this tonight. I like the result. No tripod. Just steadied on a knot on the tree and relying on the image stabilization gyros.

  • Details Matter

    During the UGA vs. Arizona State game, a number of us who post on pictures of Athens, GA on Flickr met to hang out and shoot. With just seven of us there, we were able to stay as one group and get shots of stuff and each other. I enjoyed meeting new peoole with similar…
