Keven Lohr, a Harford County guide, has been hunting waterfowl sincehe was a young man. I recently got his permission to tag along and produce these drawings.I learned that geese hunting using guides became popular during the 1920s, but was considered a sport for the rich. The sport's popularity took off during the 1950s, when farmers inthe area started using mechanical corn pickers; this allowed geese to stay and feed throughout the year.Thanks to the K.K.O Hunt Club and our guide, Keven Lohr.

Editor's note: Barry Nemett, head of the department of painting at the Maryland Institute College of Art, has been an artist for 42 years. For nearly all that time, he has sketched, both as a discipline and a passion. His latest sketchbook, filled with a year's worth of images gathered from as close as his back yard and as far away as France, is on view in the annual faculty show at MICA. We present a few of them here, along with his thoughts and recollections. In my most recent sketchbook, there are a few pages of quick, bare-bones scribbles, but mostly it is filled with pencil studies that take hours.

I HAVE ONE WORD for you," he said. "Bell-bottoms."It was just another day of arguing with my adolescent son, but he had stopped cold our verbal tail-chasing with a reference to my fashion past.It had begun when I questioned the wisdom of wearing jeans too wide to stay on your hips when you are already having trouble with tennis shoes too heavy to lift your feet. Doesn't this combination of sagging and shuffling invite tripping and falling, I asked.Joe explained that oversized jeans were necessary to showcase wildly patterned boxer shorts.

The following drawings were produced after a Saturday night visit tothe Bel Air Volunteer Fire Company. There were no calls to the station that night, which is a good thing, since it means that no Bel Air area residents needed assistance from the fire company or ambulance crew. But, as an outsider looking for some serious action to draw, it was a little disappointing.On the other hand, I met some solid citizens of the community, who give up their time to help residents of Bel Air during times of emergency.
