I was thinking about buyers in Norfolk recently and this article from our Realtor magazine caught my eye with a great article titled "Overcoming Buyer Reluctance." As we are constantly speaking with home buyers about their wants and needs for a new home, but many times especially now they are rel...

The Kodak company is introducing a new bridge camera with HD for video.  The lens will be a 26 mm with an impossibly long zoom of 24x.  Don't know much more about it at the moment but I do love a long telephoto lens.  This should be great for most inside shots and outside shots as well.  Special ...

It was another foggy day in Virginia Beach and my wife asked if I took pictures.  What a silly question.  It is really a good time to take pictures although I know a lot of people don't think so.  Of course I just love my long lens Panasonic DMC FZ 18 for these kinds of pictures. The first pictur...

 I caught this lonely little guy all fluffed up and no where to go.  He was on my bird feeder in my backyard in Glenwood for quite a while.  I don't know why he shared his beauty but he did.  It was actually daylight when I took the picture but I guess I didn't have my Panasonic DMC FZ 18 set up ...

Please don't laugh but I need to know if anyone has heard of an area around Norfolk that allows jets to land in a subdivison?  I have a buyer coming from the area around Chicago where they have a subdivison with an airstrip for the homeowners.  I have seen little Piper Cub type planes in the oute...
