I was told by my grandfather that if you are destined to hang you'll never drown. I have never been afraid of water . . .

    • Ms Terri, the year is starting slow. I don’t have my strength back yet, and the temps are so low. Being an Old Guy we don’t do cold very well. I’ve invested a good amount of “frozen inside time” working on The Old Guy Cooking blog posts. I am also doing a series of “Street Portraits” within the Images of Russell County. The B&W Series for a book and if I stop at fifty pages, the book is about done. Thank you so much for your kind words. This year will be a challenge but as I have been given breath, I intend to waste little of it. g

      • I’m sorry you don’t have your strength back yet, but perhaps God is using that to get you slow down for a little while. I don’t do cold very well either. I always say I’m a wimpopotamus because I dread the cold so much.😊 It sounds like you’re making good progress on your book – congratulations! Hang in there, and try to stay warm. Many blessings to you!

  2. I love the black and white photos. I always wonder what the stories are that go with an old photo

    • Each photograph has a story. This photograph is more of a record. The old water tower was torn down some years ago. The photo was shot at twelve noon on a Saturday. I know this well since I was leaning against a telephone pole (to steady my camera) that held a county tornado or severe weather warning siren. In this instance, during the noonday test, the horn stuck in the on position … and nearly took my hearing with it. The old horn wailed away until the city fire chief came and pulled the power chord from the electrical socket. My Sweetheart who was alive at the time thought it all very amusing. Thank you for your kind and generous comment. g
