This is Buzzy's Country Store blog designed to keep you apprised of what's going on at the Store. Buzzy's is a general store located in St. Mary's County, Southern Maryland near Pt. Lookout State Park. Buzzy and Jean Ridgell purchased the Store from Jean's father Harry Raley in 1953. Buzzy operated it until his passing in 2009. His son J. Scott Ridgell is the current owner.

Photo-wise I mostly take and prefer to have people in my shots.  That said however, I do appreciate and admire a great nature photo shot when I see one.  

Here are some photos taken by family and friends of mine that caught my eye.  They reminded me of something once said that the mark of a great photo is that it looks like a painting and that the mark of a great painting is that it looks more like a photo - think about it. 

Another sign of a great photo is that it will draw you in and make you want to spend time looking at it.  All of these do just that for me.  Enjoy.

Sunset on the St. Mary's River - Rich Brewer (Still Missing That Guy)

P.S.  As noted here in this FB posting from his daughter Kaylyn, there will be a celebration in memory of Rich this coming Saturday at 2 o'clock at the College.

Music-wise how about this Ringo tune that he and George co-wrote? Funny how you always hear about all the Beatles' songs written by Lennon and McCartney but this is the only song ever credited to Starkey and Harrison.  Great song that makes me feel happy and sad when I listen to it.  A little like I feel when looking at a Rich Brewer photo.
