Foundation Already

Published on: 2010.05.28

We understood that our foundation wouldn’t be poured until early next week — probably Tuesday. I guess the city inspector came by sooner, and the workers poured our foundation today! Again, I was very excited, and hauled my wife over there to get some more pictures. Note: You can always keep up with our house[…]

As many of you know, I’ve been working my way through old photos, deleting most of the bad stuff and uploading the rest to my Flickr account . Recently, I finished 2006, which was an interesting year for me as a person and as a photographer. It was the year I got married (in a[…]

Today, my wife and I met our “project manager” — the guy who will be our liaison during the construction phase of our house. We met him at the building site, talked for a minute, then ducked inside one of the model homes when a sudden rain shower began. It rained for a few more[…]

Thursday afternoon, our home-builder rep called us, saying construction was about to begin on our house. All the necessary permits have been pulled, and all the paperwork is in order. Friday, we drove by and saw this: (Copyright © 2010 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.) That’s a bunch of gravel piled between some[…]

I saw this question on another site, and thought it was worth answering here: Which websites do you visit every day? 1. Flickr (this should surprise no one who knows me) 2. Gmail 3. My Blogs 4. Richard Barron’s blogs (via Google Reader, usually) 5. wilcfry.com

My wife and I are very excited to announce publicly for the first time: We’re having a baby! (We’ve announced it to family members and close friends over the past couple of weeks. Today, she notified her employer that she’s pregnant, so we now feel comfortable posting this to the public.)

Austin Photo Expo

For a few weeks, my wife and I had been planning on visiting the Austin Photo Expo in (you guessed it) Austin, Texas, this weekend. She’d even made sure to get Saturday and Sunday off just in case. As you’ve read, she had to fly back home unexpectedly, helped in part by those two days[…]

I dropped my wife off at the Killeen airport Thursday morning. Yes, Killeen has an airport. It’s the first time either of us has lived less than 15 minutes from an airport. I watched her go through the (very short) security line into the terminal, which has only six gates, and then she was gone.[…]

My wife learned Monday of a death in her family, so she’ll be flying out to New York for the funeral this weekend. I’ll drop her off at the airport tomorrow and pick her up on Sunday. It’ll be our first time apart for… I don’t know how long. But she needs to go, and[…]

For those who’re wondering about the progress on our new house site, here’s an update. Saturday afternoon, when my wife left work, we drove over to the new housing addition and indeed saw some changes. For one thing, the builders have marked where our driveway will be in the curb: View Large on Fluidr (Copyright[…]

Friday evening, the UPS man brought my package from Adorama (camera store in NYC). One of the things in that package was my new Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO DG Macro lens. (Copyright © 2010 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.) Richard and my Dad know from the lens’ name what it does. For the[…]

Tuesday afternoon, as temps here in Killeen jumped to 98 degrees, my wife and I went to Community Center Park once again for a nice warm walk and to take a few pictures. I tested my Cactus V4 wireless flash trigger (Christmas gift from my wife) outdoors for the first time. I’d already used it[…]

Monday afternoon, there was a little excitement on our street. My wife was at work, and I was working on the computer at about 1:15 p.m. I thought I heard some gunshots, but it could have been an automobile backfire or someone banging on something. Looking out the window, I didn’t see anything interesting. After[…]
