Recently, I had the good fortune of unfettered free time. A full day or two of nothing specifically planned to do. No agenda. No deadlines. No particular place to go. And thatâ€™s exactly where I went. Nowhere in particular...at least that was the plan. Unbeknownst to me, circumstances and surroundings had been charted for me.
I spent time exploring our fine county of Saline. The only goal I had was to find places to photograph interesting scenes, objects or people.
The scenes and people were interesting, but it was the objects that caught my imagination.
Watching the Academy Awards has been a ritual for most of my life.
My enthusiasm for the broadcast has waned in recent years since I don't go to the movies the way I did in earlier years.
In previous decades, I watched every movie, I knew facts about all the actors and I could spout out personal and professional information about most of them.
