Welcome to my photo blog! I hope you enjoy following my adventures in photography, horses and life.
As difficult as it is for me to admit this, I’m starting a blog without a news hook. In reality, there’s no particular reason to establish a blog on March 4, the 63rd day of the year. Actually, I went in search of a news hook but couldn’t come up with anything pertinent, so I decided to choose my three favorite random reasons from the On-This-Day website.
1634 – Samuel Cole opened the first tavern in Boston, Massachusetts. (Taverns make me happy!)
1880 – Halftone engraving was used for the first time when the “Daily Graphic” was published in New York City. (One step closer to In Design!)
1930 – Emma Fahning became the first woman bowler to bowl a perfect game in competition run by the Women’s International Bowling Congress in Buffalo, New York. (My top score of 132 pales in comparison!)
So, here we are. It’s a gorgeous winter/spring afternoon in Virginia, with blue skies and puffy white clouds, and Eddie, the UPS man, just dropped off my new Nikon D3S. What more could you ask for?
Sounds good to me. Have some fun with it while you work.
