Welcome to my blog! I created this site in 2008 to provide a place for showcasing my photos and to provide information or links helpful to other photographers. As time has passed, I've added music videos and information as well. I will occasionally make comments, but will not preach or keep anyone from making comments of their own. Everyone is entitled to an opinion and I love the feedback! My goal is to make this website a regular destination for anyone who loves photography and music and wants to see what I've been up to.

YOU CAN LEAVE A COMMENT AT THE END OF ANY OF MY POSTS (all comments are moderated before publishing)

Near the bottom of this page and the other pages are the words,"OLDER POSTS". Click on that and you can then continue to the previous page. Another quick way to view the whole blog is to click on any of the subjects on the right side of the page in the BLOG ARCHIVE. Thank you for visiting!

MY CHRISTMAS CARD

This is the Christmas card that I mailed out this year. It was taken at Middle Shooks Run Park, named after the creek that flows through it. We have a lot of parks, big and small in Colorado Springs and this is one I usually walk through on a daily basis, weather permitting.



Settings For Taking Night Time Photos of Lights

First of all, I wish everyone out there a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2019!

For those new photogs with a DSLR camera, I found a link that makes it easy to understand how to take great pics of the Christmas lights you may see around town or in your neighborhood.
Follow the steps and you will get super memories to share. Here is the link:
