Fisheye Black and White 


I like the fisheye lens from Olloclip.  

These pictures were taken by me at the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum with the Hipstamatic app, and the Olloclip fisheye lens on an iPhone 6.

Life in an RV is a learning curve. I’m learning that living outside is a lot of what this is about. I knew that in my mind. I knew this was a camping lifestyle. Knowing it and living it are a bit different.

I still have things in storage that I am moving to the RV. I move and stow at least one load each day unless it is pouring down rain. I don’t think it will take much longer, a week or so at the most.

Shiny Rocks v.5



I’ve watched more TV than I usually do.  I found a few shows I could recommend.
Life has a Zen feel to it.
Touch I can’t explain, you just have to watch this.  I give it five stars.
Mr. Nobody is an interesting look at time and multiverses.  I don’t believe in time but I do believe in multiverses.


Lonely Blogs is a site where you can promote your blog if you’re into that.  From their site: “We made this website in order to support bloggers from all over the world and the blogger community. It works by reading RSS or Atom feeds that users provide and then links to the newest posts on user’s blogs.”

StoreDot works with biological self-assembling, non-toxic, organic-based materials.The website is definitely worth a visit.

Goodpeoplebrewing.com is located in Birmingham, Alabama. That is about an hour from where I stay.  BeerAdvocate, a leading voice in the beer community, says the four highest-rated beers in the South are Good People Brewing beers.

Want the best price when traveling? Tingo.com says, “If you book a Price Drop room and the rate drops, we’ll refund the difference to your credit card, automatically.”

Song Freedom is a site where you can license ‘good’ music for your videos (if you need it).

Things I Thought

  • Sometimes I want to tell people to “Walk away while you can.”
  • You have the power to imagine and create a better world.
  • We imprison ourselves.
  • Are we weak enough and strong enough to love and be loved?
  • There are infinite ways to communicate yet many still struggle to communicate basic things:  I want.  I need.  I love.

The Shiny Song

The tiger and the monkey and the elephant all asked  for you



We are heading to New Orleans in May and I maybe going again in June or July.  It’s hard to tell about the second trip.  My life is in flux. Anyway, I thought I’d post a few New Orleans pictures to get us in the mood.

 Jesse loves New Orleans

Street photography is my favorite and New Orleans is a great place to practice.


People who can see me in non-cyber space know I love shiny rocks.  I pick them up.  I carry them with me. I randomly give them away. I accept them as gifts. They sit on windowsills and tables.
This is the fourth in a series of biweekly features about sharing the gems and jewels I find along the way  (quotes, songs, thoughts, notes, websites, photos i take, photos I see).   I hope you like the shiny cyber rocks. I may update Shiny Rocks all during the day as I come across new shiny things.
If you have some shiny rocks you’d like to share leave them in the comments.   Let me know what you think.
May truth, love, and light embrace you and emanate from you.

NOLA at Night v 2.2


Christy, Jesse and I had supper here one night.  There was live music and we dance on the sidewalk.

Back Story

Christy, Jesse, and I took the Amtrak Crescent from the train depot in Anniston AL to New Orleans for a week of adventure and photography. This train station is a classical revival depot and is listed in the National Registry of Historical Places. Jesse loves to ride the train. Heck, we all love to ride the train. We left August 8, 2013 and returned August 14th. Unfortunately Jeremy couldn’t go this time. He had to work.
Christy’s father was kind enough to drive us to the train station and pick us up so we wouldn’t have to leave a vehicle parked there for a week.
We stayed at our usual place, the historic 905 Royal Hotel in the French Quarter. The 905 Royal was built in the late 1890’s.
