Murphy’s Law states, “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.” Nothing describes my trip from Washington State to Texas last December better…
“I’ll be back blogging here so don’t write me off just yet. Just trying to get settled as a family, make new friends at 59 years old which is harder than it sounds, and find my place in life’s next chapter.”
Having a Wisconsin collection is something I’ve been meaning to do for a while…
All of my DC and Arlington National Cemetery photos now have a home in the Washington, DC Area collection, I hope you’ll take a minute to browse, maybe even purchase something if you find something that flips your trigger!
I’m in the process of relocating back to the US from Japan, part of that means I mail my camera gear ahead of the move. There was no question I’d be using my old Peak Design Everyday Messenger bag, the 15 inch that started the craze. What I am surprised about is how great of a bag this still is!
After hearing about Japanese food from many friends over the years, my family and I were ready for what was to come… or were we?
Over the years I’ve taken a stab at setting up an Affiliate Page, but something has always gotten in the way…
Yesterday I was able to go out and shoot the USS Reagan as she departed Yokosuka, Japan…
Every now and then I check to see where my photos have been used, usually it’s just searching myself. Around January I’ll do a deep search with a Google Reverse Image search and that kicks up a lot more results but is more time consuming. While photography has […]
I had never thought of shooting stock photography till a friend suggested I try. Now, my photos are doing better than ever at Adobe, Getty, Shutterstock and the others. However, while traffic goes to those companies from my website, I don’t sell much there. Now, I’m working on my website and have made photos more affordable.
On December 13, 2020 The Atlantic released an online photo collection entitled, Virginia: Images of the Old Dominion. The article contains 33 photos taken at various picturesque locations in Virginia and three of those photos were mine!
Top zipper access in the 15″ PD bag, built in color coordinated battery holders (for charged/uncharged), luggage pass through on the back, and the flexi-fold style dividers to stack lenses were what I missed. Did these little things mean enough to go through the hassle of selling the current bags on eBay?
Recently, with everyone trying to stay in or close to home here in Japan where I live, I was no different. Instead of heading out to shoot, I took a few months to go through the thousands of photos on my hard drive and see what I had…

Today I drove north to Kamakura to shoot the Ōfuna Kannon, an 82 foot tall statue of Bodhisattva Kannon that weighs in at 1,900 tons. While the statue is definitely impressive and worth seeing…
A few months ago I submitted a couple of photos to a Guru Shots photo contest and ended up placing in the top 102 photo in their Striking Shots Competition. This photo is now on the Digital Camera World website, #43 of 102.

On days when I can see Mt. Fuji, I drive to the other coast; however, when it isn’t visible it’s time to go with the backup plan and today that plan was to shoot at Verny Park right here in Yokosuka.
This photo is all about getting lucky. We had moved to Fort Belvoir, VA in August 2017 and, like I normally do when we move to a new area as a military family, I explore close to home first before venturing out. Why? Because there are many times sites near, that are easy to miss when you head out looking at all the popular places first. It’s a lesson learned after living in Italy…
