I pass this shop all the time and enjoy seeing the variety of interesting items on the lawn. I've always thought, if I ever have a house, I'd like to bring some of the larger items home to jazz up the outdoors. What yard would be complete without a giant chicken. It's not the Big … Continue reading Junk Shop, Chamblee, GA, 16 October 2015
There was an egret fishing in this little inlet created when the tide rolled out Saturday morning. It started out in one section on the northern side of the pedestrian bridge, but flew away without catching anything. Possibly the same egret showed up several minutes later, downstream from where it was first seen. I zoomed … Continue reading An Egret Fishing at Myrtle Beach, 10 October 2015
Three separate videos featuring seagulls from Myrtle Beach, 9 October 2015. Up first, a lone seagull walks with steely determination to nowhere in particular. Next three to five seagulls peck around in a puddle left over from high tide. Finally, a seagull frenzy as birds fly in an out and shuffle all around.

Howard shakes his head as he … Continue reading Dunkirk Estates

Sunday, 20 September 2015, I took a walk along the Cherokee Trail at Stone Mountain. Along the way, I noted an impressive spiderweb and went over to examine it. I discovered the spider was still hard at work on the web and captured the following video.
This time, I'm highlighting a couple of individuals who came all the way from Indiana to carve their names on the mountain, Clida A. Reed, and Isaac Hawkins, who list their hometown as Bedford, Indiana. These carvings can be found near the top of the mountain. To find them, veer to the left at the … Continue reading The Carvings on Stone Mountain, #5
