This  home on 14 Amanda’s Teal Drive, located in Heritage Shores section of Bridgeville DE,  has great selling points.   Some are location, location and location next to the golf course.  Another is the soothing sound of water fountain which can be seen in pond.

The Baby Whisperer

July 25th, 2017

Photography by Jon Falk

A buddy of mine loves babies and used to cuddle sick babies at the Hospital University of Pennsylvania, HUP.  It was a calming therapy for the infants.  After a career in photojournalism, rearing his own babies and grand babies, he came out of retirement and is back to lending helping hands to babies at Virtua Hospital in  Voorhees NJ.

He sent me the following description of his work:

—————————– ——————————–
I came out of retirement to work in the NICU at Virtua Hospital in Voorhees. Back to baby cuddling like I did in the 90’s at HUP. Seems there are now lots of babies in crisis (drugs, premature births, intensive care, busy nursing staffs). Here is a selfie sort of of me at work (when they sleep there is calm time). The pay is no good but the rewards are huge. Especially when the subject and others are able to actually leave the hospital,  some having lived there for weeks. I go every night for two or three hours and so far The Queen seems to be OK with it, probably because I used  to go every night to the D N. One nurse mentioned to me that my code name is Baby Whisperer : > ) 
This particular girl baby was born at 1 pound 11 ounces and got released after three months in NICU at 7 pounds 11 oz.   Her mom and dad and I are going to start one of my One Year In The Life of (name that baby) photo sessions for a book.   I’ve done that twice before using two new neighbor boys during their first years. Fun fact now is this baby is new patient   at my son Mike’s pediatrician practice in Marlton. Who’d a thunk it?  J F

Clearing My Backlog: Progressive Hypocrite

July 24th, 2017

Seen In Internet

I’ve had the above picture for some time.  With nothing new to post, I decided to clear by old stash of unused images.

During the past presidential election, a misfit of Western societies who saw nothing wrong with her part in the deaths of thousands of Iraqi children saw fit to protest Trump.  In case you’re not aware of her comment year earlier:

—————– ——————————–

Lesley Stahl on U.S. sanctions against Iraq: We have heard that a half million children have died. I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?

Secretary of State Madeleine Albright: I think this is a very hard choice, but the price—we think the price is worth it.

60 Minutes (5/12/96)

—————— ——————————-


Her and Trump would be a great team.  Both have “America First” attitudes on foreign policy.

She is really just an old skanky witch(my wife doesn’t like to use words which sound like witch) and no real progressive.

Just Like The Old Days …

Photography by The Heritage Shores Shore Shots Camera Club

Our local camera club just finished covering a member/guest tournament.  This may the the 5th or 6th year we’ve done it.   From the beginning the tournament has had a practice day and two of actual play.  The last day has a final playoff which starts around 2:30 pm.  After the short 3-hole match among top teams, a  winning team is announced.  That’s unless it’s a tie and a chip-off contest is played.

Cocktails and hors d’oeuvre start around 5:00 pm.  The actual dinner and awards ceremonies begin after 6.

I brought that up because in the beginning golfers only wanted a slideshow from our camera club of juist one day of tournament play.  The first competition day was fine for them.

But after working for a newspaper I came to the conclusion that it was possible to shoot pictures for 2 days.  Being used to making deadlines, it’s a piece of cake to  get photographs of the winners on Saturday evening and place them  in a slideshow which starts at 5:00 pm.

The trick is to have the slideshow ready to go from images shot on Friday, by Saturday morning.  On Saturday, shoot the final round with winners being congratulated and such.  Then run home download those images, select a few and add them to the slideshow collection.  Burn a DVD and slap label on it.  Of course, the label has an image from tournament play.

The image above went onto a DVD label for this year’s tournament.  It’s not mine.  I was the picture editor and was able to be inside during high heat days of tournament.  Somebody had to do it:)

Brush It Off Card

July 21st, 2017

Photography by E.W. Faircloth

I took this picture of a wall behind the reception desk in a Philadelphia Hotel before checking out.  Since I like to one of a kind greeting cards, it necessary to keep coming up with art.  That’s the easy part, but because English, literature, grammar, and spelling are not my strong point, I need help to put greeting in the cards.

However, I’m good at finding ideas from others.  DuckDuckGo.com and Google are helpful during my searches.

The image above should work well with sayings about brushes or etc.

A quick seach on DuckDuckGo.com return the below out on many:

Laughter is the brush that sweeps away the cobwebs of your heart — Mort Walker

You know you’re living right when you wake up, brush your hair – an confetti falls out! — Katy Perry

Pick Me

July 20th, 2017

Photography by E.W. Faircloth

These women were waiting for a line of guys to come over and partner for a Salsa lesson in Brasil’s nightclub in Philadelphia PA.  My wife is in the line but someone had picked before I got there.  It’s no big deal because everyone get to dance with every person of the opposite sex at least once.  There’s a very organized way to switch partners so if there’s more men than women or vice-versa, it still works pretty good.  I danced twice with Margo during the lesson, plus at least 30 other women.

You’re Rocking The Boat

I’m guessing that’s George Washington crossing the river.  It’s a piece of artwork on the outside wall of The Museum of The American Revolution, seen in Philadelphia PA.

I’m also guessing the British were thinking about Washington rocking the boat also.

Pop Wayne Can Make This Picture Go Away …

July 15th, 2017

Photography by E.W. Faircloth

I was looking in stored images for some jazz musicians.  Since I didn’t remember where the images were, all folders were being searched.  This image crossed my path in the search.

So,  I decided to send a copy of the 2006 wedding shower picture to my daughter. Having a little fun, I told her to tell my son-in-law that “Pop Wayne can make this picture go away, for a small fee.”

Free Stuff In Philly

July 14th, 2017

Photography by E.W. Faircloth

We were in Philly the night before dancing Salsa.  After being in the sun and almost 90 degree  heat, we decided not to go dancing again, this night.

The picture above was taken during a Latino festival down on Penn’s Landing in Philly.  The event was free, and guess what kind of music they played?

Too Tired To Tweak

July 12th, 2017

Photography by E.W. Faircloth

I need to calibrate my two computers.  The above image was edited on my Windows machine and posted using my Linux box. The image is too dark and muddy.  But I’m outside barbecuing in 90 plus heat and too tired to tweak it, right now.
