A neglected blog. Yes, I know. I've been reminded numerous times from a co-worker that'll go unnamed. But, as always, there's been good reason. Been doing numerous graphics for the cause of the Big Man upstairs and my church. Just when I think I've knocked the to-do list down a... Continue reading

Since I had my Nikon out, my baby grand all polished up and shiny, and Jennifer's shoes nearby, I staged an impromptu photo shoot in honor of the newly installed carpet. Yep, we've always been a no-shoe household and intend to stay that way. Truth be told, I'm putting together... Continue reading

For me, trimming the Christmas tree just a week prior to the 25th would be perfectly fine. No earlier. But perfectly fine for me has never happened in the past 11 years of being married to my girl. Oh no. The tree gets hung and trimmed immediately after the Thanksgiving... Continue reading

She left the note in a cake that was partially consumed, telling me not to eat it while she was away! Jamie

We are a note dropping family of three. Notes here and there... surprising tidbits to be found in lunch boxes, under pillows, in backpacks, anywhere that is new and fun. Mostly the notes are short and sweet "I love you's" or reminders to be careful and safe. This one, however,... Continue reading

Awkwardness. Uneasiness. Trespassing. These feelings, to name a few, are the initial ones I experienced when exiting the autobahn for the last five kilometers of my trek from Berchtesgaden to Dachau, Germany. Having always been a student of WWII history, I awoke early this day in Bavaria relatively excited to... Continue reading

If there's one thing I have in common with Gomez Adams, it's the fact that I've always been nuts about the french accent*. I absolutely love it. Recently I was fortunate enough to indulge in a healthy dose of it while on a whirlwind tour of three countries in twelve... Continue reading

Every morning I blink open my eyes I thank God. For everything. For the warm blankets I share with my lovely bride. For never having to know unemployment or health issues. For the friends in my life. For family. And for all of the undeserved blessings I continue to be... Continue reading

Yesterday I received an email regarding a subject I'd long forgotten about. Being the Halloween season of ghouls and goblins, the note was appropriately timed to say the least. The email was from a local author famous for dredging up Detroit's dark corners and shadows: Richard Bak. He followed thru... Continue reading

Last evening Metro hosted the annual Trunk or Treat event with the theme being, Toy Story. I was asked to shoot the event (awesome, awesome) and I honestly expected to show up and take a few shots here and there. Wrong... big time, wrong. I filled up 12GB worth of... Continue reading

My last post was regarding my wonderful neighbors-next-door. Through them I have been fortunate enough to have been introduced to one of the greatest friends I've had in my life: Jimmy. He is my outdoor companion, my true friend, my brother by choice. Jimmy is married to Tracy, and together... Continue reading

Last Saturday. Alarm goes off at 7am. The moment has finally come at last. After months of talking about it, I finally did it. I shot the neighbors. And man did it feel good, they certainly had it coming to them. I've had the pleasure of living right next door... Continue reading

Give me the boot. Two boots, that is. Plus a tent and a pack. Throw in my nikon and most importantly great companions and man... that's as good as a hike can get. That's just what I got last weekend: one of the best hikes to date. And if the... Continue reading

Camera boy. That's me. I can work my Nikon in complete darkness these days, it's turned into an extension of my physical being. Last night I gave my left eye and right trigger finger another work-over. Five comics rolled into town to deliver an incredibly funny evening to a packed... Continue reading

September. My favorite month to spend a week in the Canadian wilderness. A month of virtually guaranteed perfect weather to kayak and camp in comfortable fashion. Comfortable, anyhow, for those like me that consider a week without a five bar 3G signal, no electricity, and the absence of plumbing a... Continue reading

This past weekend was a two day celebration of music. As noted on our website: "Worship is a big part of the experience at Metro. We use music as one of the primary avenues to express our hearts to God. As a matter of fact, we believe that we were... Continue reading

After much research and hesitation, I pulled the trigger on a serious professional lens today. Come Friday, it'll reside in my holster. A Nikkor 17-35mm f/2.8D IF-ED crown jewel. If I can't make miracles with this piece of glass, I'd better hang up my shooter... Continue reading

Yesterday saw ~650 lbs of my Arthur-Fonzarelli-coolness hand delivered to a new owner, leaving me quite far from cool today. I expected it to be a heart-wrenching moment, but actually it was surprisingly refreshing. To be brutally honest, riding just became dull over the years. I received my asking price,...

Yesterday, cursed with the gloom of the day-long rain, Zoie had an incredibly cool idea to brighten things up. She thought it would be awesome to sit in a chair on the sidewalk covered with an umbrella and just enjoy the sound of the rain. So we did just that.... Continue reading
