Hi, and welcome to my Pops and Mojo Photo Blog, I hope you enjoy what you see, mainly photos that I’ve snapped.  From the backyard here in Baltimore and way beyond, if I think it’s visually interesting or cool I’ll shoot it.  So check in from time to time and get a small glimpse into the way that I see my world. Update: Since I started my blog over ten years ago, a lot has happened.  My Baltimore days are over, and I’m now living in Durham, NC with my wife Lisa and Chihuahua Pico

Shooting a pasture of cows at dusk in Central Virginia.

Tex was my pet, friend and roommate for over 13 years. I took a lot of pictures of him and mentioned him often, here he is sleeping on my furry jacket of course. Sadly he passed away on December 13, 2020.

Me in my past career as a Television video photographer, I left the business in 2015. I won six Emmys for my efforts, all while still representing my Alma Mater.

    Love the cropping on the turtle. I’m looking at him, but it makes me wonder what he’s looking at. As for the Virginia shots, I feel like I’m right there in the field.

    Visiting from Fiberfarm. The bug shots, especially the dragonfly, are fabulous. I would love to have you shoot my bees (probably the only way I will get a REALLY good look at ’em!!) but, alas, I live in NE Florida. Thanks for the eye candy!!

  9. My favorite image is the last of the horse play set, the one with just one white horse with that amazing backdrop of autumn trees.

    • Thanks Grace, it’s one of my favorites too, he was really far away in really cool late afternoon light all by himself, very tranquil

    True confessions. . . . I love the festive moon image so much I had to see if I could make it the wallpaper on my phone last night. It worked and it made me so happy to wake up to it this morning. Alas, I can’t leave the house with it like this without your permission and compensating you for the use of your image. I would be most grateful if you would contact me to see if we can work something out.

  13. Kara, enjoy, you may use any picture on my blog as your wallpaper, I’m glad it makes you happy!

    Joel, I enjoyed meeting you at the Shearing on Saturday. Great pictures on the farm blog. I wish we could have spent some time looking at the pictures we each took and talking. I’m sure I could learn alot from you. Ah, maybe some day our paths will cross at the farm again. Enjoy the Durango and Silverton. Be sure to check out the web site and order your tickets on-line!

    • Thanks so much Roni, I really enjoyed talking with you too. I always love chatting photography and travel, two of my favorite things.
      I can’t wait to get out west to start shooting, and I’m especially psyched for Durango and Silverton. You can email your photos from Saturday to joeleagle@comcast. net, I’d love to see them!

    Oh yeah, I’d love to share a few of my pics from Saturday, how would I do that?

  17. You have a great blog here and I have really enjoyed looking at some of your macro shots of insects. Keep it up.

  18. Hi Joel ! Thanks for your comments. I do follow your blog but as you can see on mine i’m more urban than nature. But the pictures are beautiful and it happens that i like some of them and mention it. Go on your work is colorful and that’s my viewing of the world !!!

    I stumbled onto your pictures from Pinterest when I did a search for Baltimore, my home,my heart 🙂 I just wanted to say i love your pictures of the local area, particularly the abandoned houses that dot our city, and the iconic landmarks (Greenmount Cemetery and the two o’ clock club etc). And your dog is pretty dam cute too 🙂 haha.

    Keep up the great work!

    • Thanks so much Amy, glad you stumbled in. I’ll try to get a Baltimore pic up on other stuff this week for you.

  20. I love your photos! I am a complete amateur with a pocket point and click Panasonic Lumix in my bag all times. I would so love to learn to use an SLR, but I’m broke & can’t afford to buy one (yet!) I also love lying down on the ground to get a completely different perspective or catch an animal at eye level (mostly my tortoise Myrtle)

    You have a new follower!

    • Thanks Barbara! Learning a DSLR isn’t as hard as people think, the technical stuff does take time to figure out, but once you do, all your thought goes into framing your photo. And the shots available are infinite, they never run out, and you can’t say that about many things in this world. Hope you can get that SLR soon, maybe get a used one to start. Good luck with it, and if you ever need help with a photo question, just email me!

      • Barbara

        Wow! Thanks, I will 🙂
