Last Saturday I spent the day in downtown Knoxville Tennessee for the farmers market, my stepdad Chuck is a woodturner and has a booth to sell his excellent hand turned wood bowls and peppermills. If interested in a cool gift check out his website@ http://www.tellicoturnings.com. Back to the post, this weekend at home I was trying to get away from my norm of wildflowers and bugs and nature in general and do some street photography, this posed some interesting problems with lighting and various ISOs and I used my flash alot for fill. I think I did o.k. and there are more street pics to come this week… :-)
This weeks challenge is anything to do with alcohol. While I’m not a big drinker I do enjoy a shot mixed with something and my current fave besides Makers Mark is Jim Beam Devils Cut in the airline bottle of course. Why such a little bottle you ask? Well the last time I bought a half fifth it took me a year and a half to drink it so the one shot baby bottles work for me and I don’t waste it.
For my pics I have a fire truck used to advertise Fireball whiskey, never tried it and don’t plan to. And of course is the whiskey of the quarter..Jim Beam Devils Cut, 90 proof and is real smooth.. :-)
Its been awhile since I did a Skywatch post so I decided to get off the flower fridays for a bit and save some pics for winter. So, on Tuesday evening I was in Edwardsville Illinois across the Mississippi from St. Louis and there was quite a light show to the north. I got chased back into my truck a couple of times due to the rain but I did manage a few nice lightning shots… :-)
Last Friday morning I was in Galesburg Illinois, the sun was shining and all was well. Then the clouds rolled in, dark and violent, then the winds kicked up and lightning flashed and thunder rolled… then the rain hit, blowing sideways and my truck shook. Then it was over and the sky cleared as the storm moved off to the north west, it was pretty cool for 0830 in the morning… :-)
