Avery’s BCT Graduation

Here are a few photos from our recent trip to Fort Leonard Wood, Misery…uh…Missouri. Congrats Avery!

Hangin’ with the Antelope

A couple of days ago I received my new 150mm-600mm telephoto lens. Almost everyday I see the herd of pronghorn antelope that live near my house, but rarely would I have the opportunity to get close enough for a shot. Those days are gone! Here are some of the shots I got.

Boise at Night – July 2018

Here are a few pics from last weekend. Surprisingly, there’s a lot going on in downtown Boise on a Saturday night…

The Eagle…

I was going over some photos from my trip to the World Center for Birds of Prey and this one stuck out to me. The majestic Bald Eagle with shadows from the bars of his cell falling across his face. It struck me as a little spooky. I’ll leave it to you to work out how it relates to our great country today…



Thirty Million Image Views!

It’s hard to believe that my photos have been viewed over thirty million times. It really makes photography fun. My next goal is to make it to the top 100 of all time on the site and it’s just around the corner!

First a hair loss page, Now Testosterone Nation…

A while back a photo of my bald head was used on a hair loss site. Now a photo of my hand is being used on a site called Testosterone Nation… I’m starting to see a trend here.2018-07-17 15_13_02-World of Warcraft

Lunch Walk 7/16 or OMG IT’S HOT!

I’m not a fan of summer, but it doesn’t seem to bother the bees…

I walked for 30 minutes and I’m still not cooled down yet. God bless our soldiers out there in those dry and dusty places.

Some Photos from Saturday 7/14

I got up early and walked around down town. The dew drops were shot at Julia Davis park.

The Little Sunflower that Could

Oh hi little flower! Welcome to your new home!

Smack dab in the middle of one our backyard plants, we found a wild sunflower growing.


These flowers grow all along the road to our house, but I’ve yet to see one in anyone’s yard. Avery loves these, so I thought it was pretty cool. They bloom in to fall, so she’ll get to see it when she gets back!


Now I’m a Poet…

So I write Avery a lot. She’s in boot camp and I figure letters from home are cool to get. I find that there are only so many things to write about in a letter. She knows that I miss her and the life at home is the same as it ever was.

So what’s the next step? Compose a damned haiku! It’s just common sense…. Ok, here it is…

I’m missing my girl
I send her my heart in words
Letters aren’t enough

You might think that this is all fun and games, but I couldn’t remember the correct syllable count for each line. Then there was the nightmare scenario of trying to figure out if ‘aren’t’ was one syllable or two. Being a dad is hard



More from April 2018

For the new blog, I’m going through some photos from earlier in the year. Enjoy!
