The Anniversary of Pearl Harbor

Five years ago I never knew the importance of this day. I knew what what happened but never let it sink in. Every year since then I have written a post on December 7th talking about the attack on Pearl Harbor. Early in the predawn light swarms of Japanese Zeroes and torpedo bombers flew over […]

Since I was in Africa throughout October I never got a chance to photograph Fall. Well I certainly will have plenty of time to photograph Winter as we already have a bunch of good storms going through. Driving down to Mammoth Lakes for Thanksgiving gave me plenty of time as it had just snowed through […]

I made the switch! For the first time I am using a MacBook Pro and so far I have to say I am really enjoying it. Of course there are some habits that i have to get used to doing differently now, key strokes especially, but the speed difference is incredible. Not only the speed […]

The Locals

Our first experience when arriving at the game preserve, outside from the drive in from the airport, was a couple of very interesting birds that look more prehistoric then just about any other birds that we saw.

It’s all about the Little Guys

One of the biggest challenges I have with a blog is figuring out how to prioritize which posts go up when. The more you travel the harder it is to get current posts up. Well I was thinking about this and came to the conclusion that I wanted to do more Africa posts seeing as […]

The Super Guppy

Here’s my fun Friday post. At Wings over Houston I had the great opportunity to go inside NASA’s Super Guppy. It’s just an amazing plane that has such an irregular look to it that it makes you scratch your head and ask, “how does it fly?” Seriously it’s funky looking, but it actually has a […]

The Perspective of Scale

While I was out shooting one morning with Dad he brought up the issue of putting these planes into perspective as far as scale goes.
