Got to see where GE’s used to be made! My GE MSTRII’s were made right here! Lynchburg, VA
After I became active again in Ham radio, the first thing I wanted to do is be able to talk to my Dad on his repeater in Pine Mountain. The 145.190 repeater has been on the air for 40 years this year. To my suprise, it was not doing so good. He had been fighting intermod for a long time and had pretty much given up. When I started trying to talk into it again, I couldn’t even get in from Ellerslie. Continue reading WB4ULJ 145.190 Repeater in Pine Mountain Ga
I started to work at Alexander Electric about six months ago. It has been quite a ride. 🙂
They have me in school to get my Journeyman’s Card and I have been learning a lot! I work on remodels mostly and do service calls. I have been volunteering to work in different departments to learn as much as I can about all aspects of the craft. Continue reading My new career at Alexander Electric
I tried my hand at fireworks for the first time this evening. Even though it poured rain and I had to shoot from under an umbrella 30 mins early, I got a once in a lifetime shot.
I actually got lightning in the shot with the fireworks!
I took these from the top of the River Center parking garage. I hope you enjoy them.

I went down to opening night of the fair with some people from the Photopia photography group.
It was a nice slow night with good weather and of course, the place was a RIOT of colors.
I was carrying my old Bronica film camera and Continue reading Pictures from The Columbus Fair. On film of course
These are a few photos I shot and developed this week that I liked. I figured I would put them in my photoblog.
A couple are from Ocmulgee Mounds over in Macon. I took a picture for this nice family I ran into and got a picture of some grass hut they had over there. It was basically Continue reading A few photos I shot on Portra 400 this week

Finally got a chance to go out and shoot again today. My friend John Helms was digging at me again about his superior 9 gazillion dollar cutting edge Nikon system, so I challenged him to shoot at the ball field today against me and my Fuji X-pro 1 with old legacy manual lenses.
I think our 2 sets of images will show how the equipment you use will dictate your approach to the subject you are photographing. I’m sure our photos will be wildly different! 🙂
Anyway, here are the photos I got today.
