Photo of the Week


NOTE: I apologize for my absence on the comment boards this past week. I was on a summer vacation with my daughters in Atlanta, and our downtown hotel did not provide the Internet.

THE PHOTO: This week’s photo comes from my aforementioned Atlanta vacation. It is obviously of the CNN Center, which included a pretty awesome tour.

THE CAMERA: All my digital pictures are taken with a Minolta Dimage S414 with 4.0 megapixels.

A LITTLE CROWD PARTICIPATION: Dr. Watson gave me a great idea: I’ll give a topic each week, and you guys send in some pictures! I’ll engage a team of unbiased judges (my family) to pick the actual “photo of the week.” It may end up being just Dave and I participating in our little photographic scavenger hunt, but that’d be okay, too. Since I went with a summer vacation picture this week, let’s use that one as our first topic. “Summer Vacation.” Send in your best picture of that theme to me at I’d also be happy to hear any comments, advice, or even suggestions for future topics.

    Great Picture from the Communist News Network. I would have toured The Weather Channel’s Atlanta based operation. Perhaps you could have snapped a photo of Alexandra Steele or Heather Tesh or one of the other hot weather babes.

    Seriously, I love your pictures. You know that.

    Great picture, Al. Here are my suggestions for future topics –

    1. Changing seasons (I love pictures of Autumn, especially since we don’t get to experience it in our part of the country)
    2. Funny pets
    3. Black & white portraits (think Irving Penn)
    4. Unique architecture
    5. Patriotism
    6. Photos that capture the emotion of the subject (sadness, joy, surprise, love etc.)
    7. Famous landmarks
    8. Unforgettable faces
    9. Planes, trains, & automobiles
    10. And of course, landscapes (which could be broken into sub-themes, like mountains, ocean, city skylines, etc.)

    Or DESERTS! The Tucson bloggers would take the crown for desert landscapes!

  5. Joe Longhorn Says:

    Or DESSERTS! The San Diego bloggers could take the crown for cake and ice cream landscapes!

  6. Annie Says:

    Perhaps the Tucson and San Diego bloggers can compete for the best U.S./Mexico border landscape. Extra points if your photo includes Minute Men capturing illegal immigrants crossing the border.

    There’s a good topic for your next conservative politics post, Joe.

    You crack me up. 🙂
    Hope you’ll be home soon and we’ll get to see you!! It’s been a long time.

  8. Annie Says:

    I’ll take that as an official invitation for us to come visit you guys in San Diego. Besides, Sheffield misses Major. Is Labor Day weekend good for you or should we try to do Thanksgiving again? We’ll discuss the details via e-mail or phone.

  9. R&B Says:


    Looking at the picture: so probably this outfit won’t be going chapter 13 and turning the buildings into the projects? Well, maybe I stand corrected … we’ll see 🙂

    They didn’t seem to be hurting while I was there! (though they did take my money…)

  11. Al Sturgeon Says:

    BTW, I love all the photo theme ideas. I’ll be using them w/o a doubt…
