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)

What a great relationship these two have!  Who knows?  Maybe we'll see this four year old again one of these days when she's on America's Most Talented.

Cute Father/Daughter Video is HERE.


Imagine yourself in each situation:

Read quietly then send it back on its journey

To realize
The value of a sister/brother
Ask someone
Who doesn't have one.

To realize
The value of ten years:
Ask a newly
Divorced couple.

To realize
The value of four years:
Ask a graduate.

To realize
The value of one year:
Ask a student who
Has failed a final exam.

To realize
The value of nine months:
Ask a mother who gave birth to a stillborn.

To realize
The value of one month:
Ask a mother
Who has given birth to
A premature baby.

To realizeThe value of one week:
Ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realize
The value of one minute:
Ask a person
Who has missed the train, bus or plane.

To realize
The value of one second:
Ask a person
Who has survived an accident.

Time waits for no one.

Treasure every moment you have.

You will treasure it even more when
You can share it with someone special.

To realize the value of a friend or family member:

I just listened to the song "Betty Davis Eyes" on the Jim Brickman radio show.  It was a 1981 hit by Kim Carnes. Info on Wikapedia says ""Bette Davis Eyes" is a classic hit song written by Donna Weiss and Jackie DeShannon, and made popular by American singer-songwriter Kim Carnes. It spent nine weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was Billboard's biggest hit of the entire year for 1981. The recording won the 1982 Grammy Awards for both Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year."

I miss Kim Carnes  on the airwaves!  She had a sexy, raspy voice.  Mr. Brickman said he always wondered if Betty Davis heard the song about her.  He found out that yes, she had listened to it and liked it.  In fact, Kim  Carnes actually got the chance to sing it to her in person.  If you're unfamiliar with the song or would like to hear it  again go  here

Another song by Kim Carnes I like even better is "What About Me?" sung by Carnes, Kenny Rogers, and James Ingram.  The song was written by Rogers, and Richard Marx.  Videos of the trio singing the song  are visibly terrible, but the audio is not bad.  Listen to the song HERE

My nephew Cliff is a high school physics teacher.  I was browsing his Facebook page today and someone linked the following video about another great physics teacher and how he engages his students so well and keeps their interest on a high level of learning (just like my nephew).  One day he shared a part of his personal life with them.  The following is what he revealed about his son.
