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.

In just two short days, I've become a Jared Leto fan.  In my small encapsulated life I had never heard of him until I watched him play the lead role in the movie,"Prefontaine" yesterday.  It was a great movie and even though I knew who Steve Prefontaine was and was aware of the movie about his life, I was surprised that it had taken me 15 years before I watched it!

As an actor, Mr. Leto is very gifted. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, a docudrama of Prefontaine's rise to fame as a 1970's cross-country champion runner for the University of Oregon and his quest to win the gold medal at the 1972 Olympics in Munich.  Steve Prefontaine's story was certainly meant to be made into a movie.

But today, I was watching an unrelated video and saw Jared Leto's name associated with Thirty Seconds to Mars and the fact that he is the lead singer for this three-man group.  Naturally, I had to hear this group in performance so I watched one of the available videos.  I now know just how multi-talented this man is.  Now 41, with rock star long hair, I'm very much  impressed with his singing as well!  The other band members are his brother, Shannon Leto the drummer and guitarist Tomo Milicevic.

I'm sure many of you discovered Jared Leto long ago and have enjoyed his performances in the TV show, "My So-Called Life" and  more than a dozen movies including "Girl, Interrupted". 

I could go on, but I'll let you watch a video of Jared Leto chatting with August Brown, music writer for the Los Angeles Times, about his career and what the future holds HERE.  After watching the interview, you can watch Thirty Seconds to Mars perform "The Kill (Bury Me)" HERE.
