That sure was some heat yesterday. Cut the grass when the clouds hadn’t rolled in yet and got roasted and toasted. Then worked on the deck for a bit, a quick shower before the storms and 5 minutes to capture an image or two from the neighbors and our yards. So I did accomplish a few things except for the ride but I’ll squeeze that in today and hopefully grab a few frames around the county.

Color by nature.

Going to be another warm one today, be careful all.


The mother of Heather Heyer is a very well spoken, thoughtful and insightful person. I would also add strong to be so composed and articulate at what is the most difficult thing in the world I could imagine. A parent losing a child.

I have a new subject in the house today to photograph. Our grand dog.

To all the teachers in the world. We salute you as you begin another year.

President Kelly is making progress, just a loose cannon to contain.

Satisfaction = love of family and having it returned.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
