Traveling through the rain yesterday, I decided to pull over and take a couple of pictures of this large church and cemetery:
I have a “walking around” camera that I often carry with me on the motorcycle; it’s also the camera I use during inclement weather and let the grandson use if we’re out on a photo walk. I had this Panasonic Lumix with me yesterday to take this picture.
I will eventually get back to this area and take more pictures of the cemetery and the church, probably during nicer weather.
Though not obsessed, I do enjoy photographing both churches and cemeteries. I took this picture about 10 days ago in Spring Grove, PA:
This church was built in 1849; a newer church, built across the street, is now used for regular services. Not sure how often this one is still used, if at all.
In April, I was in Lewistown (Thurmont), MD, taking pictures of St. John the Baptist Church:
Note: pictures of Spring Grove and Lewistown churches were taken with my prosumer Nikon camera.
Breakfast is an important meal… I don’t always cook breakfast (occasionally I eat cold pizza or cereal or cheese or …? ); but when I do cook, I sometimes take pictures. This morning was one of those times:
Are those almost perfect looking eggs or what? I heard an interview on NPR a few months ago featuring Julia Turshen (I believe it was on Fresh Air but don’t quote me on that). She is the author of a cookbook called Small Victories. Included (and mentioned during the interview) is a recipe for perfect eggs. It works — adding a teaspoon of water to the frying pan and covering cooks the eggs through, keeping the yolks soft but the whites cooked. No flipping required. And, yes, I bought a copy of that cookbook.
Here are a couple of pictures of breakfast from a few weeks ago:
No recipe was needed for this one — even I can cook scrambled eggs. I do saute’ my onions for a few minutes before adding the other ingredients — in my opinion, it improves the flavor as long as I don’t overcook them (just long enough to keep them crunchy but not so long as to make them transparent).
