This was originally posted to Facebook, knowing that more of Shelby’s friends and relatives would find it there before they would find it on my blog.
So proud of Shelby, she has recently been demonstrating so much maturity and responsibility… if I coulda been half of who she is gonna be……. /;^) You Go Girl.
We spent some time this afternoon at the Swan Creek shooting range, brushing up on firearm and range safety. Had some lunch too.. She has a good eye, and a steady hand. Little girlz’a growin up. Makes a Daddy proud, to see her so confident .!. /;^) — with Shelby Anne Sieg.

Swan Creek range AL_DCNR
A good eye, and a steady aim. Such determination.
Even the old man got off a few rounds
Not as interested in the 9mm CPX2, kinda loud.
Firearm & range safety : practice & confidence is valuable
We appreciate all the FB friends that have LIKEd and COMMENTd on the post.
I don’t frequently make such an endorsement on my blog.
This is a unique situation tho, and I felt a call to action . . .
There is a limited time to respond, or this won’t happen. This is a once-in-a -lifetime opportunity to be a part of such a unique project. Only here, only now.
My friend Earl Carter is preparing to publish a book, but this is more than a book of pictures. Earl has an ability to capture so much more than just light. He knows the people in his photographs, and they invite him into their soul through their eyes. This remarkable presence is more than photography; you learn so much about these people by looking at these pictures, as if you were there…..
Samples of Earl Carter’s Photography
These photos are copyright by Earl Carter, http://earlcarter.com …
Earl has been a photojournalist for the last 45 years, working at the Miami Herald, the Huntsville (AL) Times, and the Kingsport (TN) Times-News. This will become a valued collector’s piece, but not unless the funding is secured through this unique channel. I’ll let Earl explain it via his KickStarter website.
Please feel free to re-post, like, re-tweet – somehow tell all your friends; get the word out now. We only have until Sept. 8th, 2012 to gather enough pledges to get this published. This is a simple process, and a clever way to make this happen. With enough support this will become a reality.
You can get a preview of “The Appalachian Album“, and look back over some of the material that Earl has been collecting.
You don’t even need to tell him that I sent you, just go do it.

Sometimes what we find, is not what we were looking for.
I sometimes look for pictures I can’t find, as they can hide behind other pictures in a frame. Not unusual to find several prints stacked in there. I didn’t find the one I had started looking for, but ran across this one, which is kinda neat too.
Single Rope Rappelling on Slabbo
Slabbo is a granite exposure near Raleigh Peak south-west of Denver, where I used to go for camping and general rock-roping kinda fun. This is a cut-out composite from the mid-80s; and now with digital image editing, I have scrubbed the cut-lines a bit. You can click the pic for a larger image, or visit my ‘Keepers’ Gallery on DropBox for some other favorites. I’ll have to get out my old topo maps and find this again, now that I can go back via GoogleEarth.
Thanks for the memories.
Now – what was it that I was looking for in the first place . ? .
