“It does not matter who your are, or where you are from.  We are all children of the world.”

I saw this sign while on vacation in Animal Kingdom, a Disney property.

This Kind Of Work Is Becoming Harder To See

resistors

Photography by E.W. Faircloth

My latest Raspberry Pi project requires twenty five (25)  330-Ohm resistors.  Dave, the guy working with me on this, suggested I use the small resistors as way to make all the electronics fit in the box he’s building.  These resistors are small, really small.

The resistors needed to be soldered to a header on the RasPi.  You could get about 10-15 of these little rascals lined up side to side on a penny.

This kind of work is becoming harder to see.

patriotism

Photography by E.W. Faircloth

 

A member of the Delaware Department Marine Corps League watches newly elected and appointed officers at a ceremony held at Heritage Shores on May 13, 2017.

At 8:45 am the phone rang.  It was a former Marine looking for a favor.  He wanted me to help his military group with pictures.  I’ve  taken pictures of this group on a number of occasions.  The meeting he wanted me to photograph started at 11:00 am.  After getting in bed around 2:00 am the previous night because of dancing,  I almost gave him some sorry excuse, but I agreed to help out.

I sent a couple of “grip and grin” pictures to the local newspaper.  The picture above would have been a better choice  but my buddy had his heart set on a picture of the group of  being sworn-in or the club’s “Marine of the Year” being presented with a citation.

The lot next to Bessie’s house was landscaped by the developer. It used to be sand and weeds and now she and her neighbors have this. Awesome!!!!!

That’s the corner of Whistling Duck and Brant Dr.  Only a few week ago, it was just dirt.  Then I saw my buddies from the previous grounds crew planting all kinds of stuff.  I’ll have to pass a print onto them.

More Black And White

black and white

Photography by Jon Falk

Well,   I’ve been programming a  perl script, recently.  So, this gives me an opportunity to put up a black and white image by Jon Falk.  This image was taken on black and white film, not converted from color.

My programming efforts have a lot to do with resizing images.  Of course, I’m using ImageMagik, a free piece of open source software for this stunt.   Once the images are resized they will be placed up on my website by a perl program.  This program will not only upload images but also make entries into a database.  Here’s a link to my family picture album.  It’s a tedious process to add images, and  a few hours of programming will help me in the future.
