    2bvnot2b, I do feel like something of an impostor. Sometimes, I ask others if there is something to see in one of my photos. It is a strange feeling – after 30 years as an Electronics Engineer, confidently maintaining high professional standards with zero formal training, I am a stranger in a strange land. The Pretty Little Red-Haired Girl has been encouraging me to relax my writing for this blog and let the real Jim out. Being expressive is a new feeling for the son of a reserved preacher’s kid. Jim

    I wish I could come. Good luck to you. My new daughter-in-law is a photographer as well and I have always been surprised at how you guys manage to see things I miss. Keep it up.

    C&LWKYAB, I am full of surprises. Ask any of my friends: they often tell me I’m full of it. – Jim {More photos will appear soon on the Adcock Aesthetica page!}
