    Favorite Things to Photograph…

    I’d have to say I have many things I like to shoot. I wish I wasn’t so introverted or I’d take more people shots (other than family, they have to let me photograph them.) I love old cars and even have one that I’ve sold a few of. It is one of my favorites that I call “Americana”. Other than…

    Grandest of Canyons

    My wife and I had the opportunity to take a vacation to the Grand Canyon. I must tell you; No photograph does this work of God justice. You MUST see it for yourself. The vistas, the wildlife, the calm. You just can’t beat it. There is so much to see. We plan on going back and possible touring the other…

    Texas Bugs

    I’ve been living in this house since 2005 and of course you have the usual ‘garden variety’ of bugs (ants, locusts, beetles) crawling around but after a few years we’ve been seeing other ‘pests’ around. The scariest, of course, being a tarantula. Then more recently I’ve been seeing quite a few, very large, walking sticks(?) – I think Praying Mantis’…

    Long Time No Blahg…

    It’s been a long time since I’ve written anything or ‘blahged”.  I guess life caught up with me and I was stuck in the endless chain of work, sleep, pay bills, work , sleep, pay bills. I still take photos every chance I get and recently got a great deal on a short flight on an old Ford Tri-Motor.  It…

    Now It is 2013…

    It is now officially 2013. Eight days after the end of the Mayan calendar. I’m going to make a t-shirt saying I outlived the Mayan Calendar. It feels like I’m the first one awake on this side of the world. I’ve already quit smoking (gained 80 pounds) – I rarely drink so I don’t have a hangover. I feel like…

    Christmas in Austin..

    I had the opportunity to walk around Zilker Park the other day just to take a break from the job, bills, Christmas stress, etc and just enjoy the birds and taking pictures. The weather so far this winter has been incredibly mild compared to the rest of the country with forcast snow, and just getting over Hurricane Sandy and all.…

    2012 Fort Worth Alliance Air Show…

    I have to say that this year was better than last year because last year, the day I had tickets for, it rained and the show was cancelled. But this year it was just cold (50ish) and cloudy and at least the air show went on! This year they had even more scheduled! I have to say I have never…

    It’s been awhile since I’ve written anything here as there has been alot going on since my father’s passing. I found that he read a book called “The Shack” and so I read it also. That was a wonderful book. You can find out about it by clicking the link over on the right over there. I finally saw a…
