San Diego Food and Photos

San Diego is about as far away from home as I can get and still be on the mainland of the US. Where we have trees and creeks and lakes, they have no so many trees, desert, beach and lots o’ salt water. The brings surfers and the southern California boardwalk we’ve all seen in ... Read More »

Livefire Photography Is Up!

Livefire Photography Is Up!

I’ve been working on some things over the past year, including my photography. I joined a club about a year ago, and they’ve helped me learn a lot about how to handle a camera better. I now have a variety of photos, from culinary-related shots to travel to scenes of SW Ohio around my home. ... Read More »

Photographers’ Food Photos Part 2

Photographers’ Food Photos Part 2

This is a follow-up to Photographers’ Food Photos Part 1, but concentrating on some really cool portrait shots. To recap, a bunch of fellow-photographers came to my house to photograph food. Most aren’t food photographers, so it was fun seeing how they approached shooting food shots. The portraits here are the work of John Flynn, ... Read More »

Photographers’ Food Photos Part 1

Photographers’ Food Photos Part 1

Readers of Livefire may or may not notice that my photos are changing lately, and, I think, getting better. I owe at least part of it to joining a local photography club, the Focus Photo Club. The club is not food-photo oriented, but it is competition-based. Every month at the meetings, people enter both print ... Read More »

Happy New Year 2013

Happy New Year 2013

I’m starting off 2013 with intentions, not resolutions.  I’m not even going to list them here, so that, when I miss one, it doesn’t have to be a big deal. I think the problem with resolutions in general is that people get down on themselves when those resolutions aren’t met. I recently read an article ... Read More »

Autumn 2012

I know we’re less than a month into autumn, but the remaining weeks find us really busy around here, doing non-autumn related stuff. And the peak of autumn is typically centered around the Ohio Sauerkraut Festival, in Waynesville, which is about 1.7 miles down the road. The fall color this year has been impressive, so ...

Try To Remember That Steak In September

Try To Remember That Steak In September

I love this time of the year. Hot of summer fades, weather of sweater begins! It’s also great grilling weather, with the cooler air being balanced by the heat of the grill. September starts a busy time of the year, when I don’t always want to take the time to cook all day. Does that ... Read More »

A Preppy Hyde Park Morning

Last weekend, my wife and I got up early to take a drive down to the Hyde Park area of Cincinnati. Hyde Park is one of the nicer areas in Cincinnati to live, with a small but very nice shopping area, with restaurants and non-chain stores. However, we started with a cup of coffee in ... Read More »

A year of beer

I’ve mentioned this a couple of times before: I spent one year photographing every different ale or beer that I had in my home, and recently finished the project! The tough part wasn’t finding ales or beers to try, but to put the right lens on my camera and get enough shots to get one ... Read More »

It’s time to announce my first giveaway/contest for 2009!  Honestly, I forgot that January 11 was my three year anniversary for Bucky’s Barbecue and Bread.  To celebrate, I decided to go back a bit for a contest. Let’s talk about the prize first.  it’s 2 jars of Bucky McOinkum’s Javacue Sauce.  This is the same ... Read More »
