Imperial Coolcumber
This is a step up from the the basic Coolcumber Ale (my favorite warm weather beer) that delivers an ABV 5.3%. The Imperial delights you with an ABV 9%.

Digital vs Film
By Karl Edwards
Shooting both in film and in digital keeps it interesting for me. Mixing it up is fun and it keeps me from becoming dull with photography; which can happen to any photographer. I do make more photos in digital than with film because it's easier.
#photography   #believeinfilm   #streetphotography  
I switched to film but there were things I took for granted with digital photography that I just couldn't live without. Here's 10 reasons I switched back.

The World Is Being Shared Through Photography
Introduction
"Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph." Matt Hardy

Photography is my passion and that is what I share with you here. I believe photos tell stories without words. Allow your imagination to be unlocked when viewing my photos and make your own story with them.

The world is being shared through photography.

Keep in mind that this platform is for sharing your passions and connecting with people who have the same interests as you. 

My camera bag contains a Nikon D5100, Canon EOS Rebel G and a Canon S100. I'm getting my moneys worth out of the cameras. Since I have my mobile device with me most of the time, I'm big into mobile photography. 

Photos of mine are under Creative Commons license, Attribution-NonCommercial. If you want to use my photos for non-commercial purposes, ask and I will give you permission via email. 

Photography themes I am most interested in:
Urban - Street - Portrait

Other interests I have beyond photography:
Personal Development - Wellness - Social Media/Marketing - Heavy Metal Music

More About Me
In my mid-twenties I took the opportunity to travel to destinations such as The Netherlands, Russia, Uzbekistan, India, and Germany. My favorite country in Europe is The Netherlands. It's a beautiful place to visit and to live. In my travels I learned to greatly appreciate diversity in language, culture, and history.

My travels have also taken me to Belgium, England, France, and Hawaii. :)

Since 1988 I have lived in the Charlotte, NC area, except for the three years I lived in The Netherlands. The Queen City is beautiful and I enjoy it.

What’s Playing Now
Deftones - Judas Priest - Kyng - Metallica - Pearl Jam - Red Hot Chili Peppers - Soulfly - Tool - U2 - Whitechapel
Bragging rights
In 1993 I made a 12 week trip to Uzbekistan with eleven other people, who were strangers to me six weeks prior. A trip such as this takes you out of your comfort zone big time.

Always a good experience at this restaurant. The service is very good. I like eating here for a quick meal. My order is always Beef Nachos. It's very tasty. So if you are needing a quick meal or not, Los Aztecas is a good place to visit. There is a patio on the side of the restaurant for nice warm evening when you want to eat outside.

My go to dish at Cowfish is the Ahi-tini. It is chunks of Ahi Tuna and Avocado along with a nice sauce, served in a martini glass. It is wonderful. I've always had good service there sitting at the bar. The fish is always fresh. I am a sashimi person. So it has to bee fresh. If you have never visited here, make it a point to go.

I'm not sure where to begin with this restaurant. It's a small local place that has a community feel to it. There are two things that stand out to me that I like: 1. Customer service 2. Wings If you're wanting something fast and convenient, check it out. It is not a BBQ joint. It's a wing joint. There are a nice variety of flavors for wings. You can even order them grilled. The place does have a sports bar feel to it. Televisions are visible throughout the restaurant. Maybe the best wings in town, because it's the only wings in town.

My experience with the staff has been the best thing going for this restaurant. They have always been attentive to what's happening at my table. Yeah, I would never say the food is excellent. You get what you pay for. It is ok for bar food. But I would not jump through hoops to grab a meal there. The decor is fine but nothing really inviting.
