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.

I love my walks.  Not only do they provide needed exercise and Vitamin D, they also provide me with needed mental health as well. On a beautiful day like today-warm and inviting with a gentle breeze, I usually walk from my home to Shooks Run Park, which has a long and wide concrete walkway.  Along the way are tennis courts, playgrounds, a basketball court, picnic area, lots of grass and  a creek that runs along the west side of the park (Shooks Run).  I brought my mp3 player so I could enjoy my music while taking in the scenery.  Today, there were many people also enjoying the park in their own way and there were times I wished I'd brought my camera.

One of those times was when a young man was coming toward me being pulled on his skateboard by his pit bull dog.  Both looked like they were having a blast!  It seems the best images sometimes are those that could have been-the ones that would have a story attached.

As I listened to Josh Groban singing "Awake", I looked over to my left and down a grassy hill and spied a young couple having an intimate picnic and kissing.  Ah, how wonderful life is and how great it is to have the freedom to live it as we choose here in America!

Coming back towards my home, I walked through my familiar neighborhood as Tommy Emmannuel strummed and picked his guitar playing his arrangement of  "Those Who Wait".  I came upon a small group of people ahead of me, and as I caught up with the young couple and their two toddlers and leashed dog, I noticed there was also a little puppy just tagging along and following the other dog.  As we approached a street intersection, the couple turned right on the sidewalk and I was going to cross the street.  The puppy saw me and decided he was going to follow me and for a brief moment I realized I'd better stop or he would  possibly run out into the street.  Even though no words were spoken, I saw the look of appreciation on the couple's faces as they called the puppy towards them and the little guy soon was darting among them again as they went their way and I went mine.
