Century Challenge

This weekend, there was century challenge in town, a hundred mile bike ride. That seems like a mighty long time in the saddle. I thought this would be a good subject for motion blurs. A moving cyclist is much faster than a moving running back and panning with the cyclist is much more difficult that I expected.

Butt Swell

We had a severe drought this winter and the Waccamaw River swamp was pretty dry. You could walk many places that would normally require a boat. Did you ever notice how cypress trees are larger at the base then narrow to the normal trunk size? A forester friend of mine gave me the technical term for this condition... butt swell. A good many humans have this condition too. ;-o

This old church in Antigua had some amazing sculpted columns. Too bad it didn't survive the earthquakes of the 1700s.
