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.

This past summer my brother's family and I traveled to Telluride, Colorado and camped at the Alta Lakes campground.  One of the excursions we took while visiting this historic mining area was the Via Ferrata.  More than a thousand Via Ferrata ("Iron Roads", in Italian) trails exist in the world today.  Most of them are in the Alps and date back to World War I, when they were built in the Dolomite region of Italy to aid in moving troops through treacherous terrain.  The one at Telluride was started by Chuck Kroger and his mountaineering friends around 2006.  My nephew Cliff is an experienced climber and spent some time in Yosemite teaching mountain climbing to enthusiasts visiting the area. He and  his wife Tasha and their two young boys navigated this "cliff" trail.  NO, I did not accompany them!  http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x27gog1_the-rocky-terrain-of-the-via-ferrata-episode-3_auto
