Very busy today, but wanted to get another shot of the Ball-Eddleman-McFarland House. Enjoy.
Today on the way to work, I stopped by a historic house on the west side of downtown Fort Worth. The Ball-Eddleman-McFarland House. That sure is one humdinger of a name. And it is one humdinger of a house. I haven’t been inside yet, but hope to someday soon. For now I enjoyed snapping a [...]
Most of my shots from Colorado were of the outdoor beauty, but I’d be remiss not to speak of the Denver Art Museum. It is a spectacular place, with more art than I could have imagined for a city the size of Denver. When I walked into the main building I was surprised at the [...]
Continuing my birthday theme from yesterday, here’s a shot of Arielle, now 22, at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado. It was beautiful and COOL, unlike our sweltering 100 degree heat wave we are in now. Happy weekend to everyone, all two of you who follow this thing I do.
I’m a lucky man. I’ve been blessed with a wonderful wife and two beautiful daughters. I’m also lucky that I only have to remember two birthdays—my youngest daughter’s June birthday and my wife and oldest daughter’s shared day in July. That’s right. Arielle was born on my wife’s birthday. I remember the day like it [...]
Well it’s been almost two weeks since I was in Colorado’s mountains. I sure do miss the cool weather. Everyday I go out to my car and the thermometer screams 108+ degrees. I melt within about 5 minutes. It’s times like this that I really wish for the cool breezes and waters of the Rocky [...]
Two weeks ago I was in the Garden of the Gods, Colorado. What magnificent rock formations. It was enjoyable just walking amongst them and shooting. Everywhere we turned there were interesting angles and views that looked like abstract paintings and sculptures. I really wish I could have been there at sunrise, but since this was [...]
While driving back from our Colorado vacation we stopped in the parking lot of an abandoned old gas station to get something out of the trunk. It was then I stepped up to the broken out windows to look in and found a bit of history. Look at the signs above the doors, the “mens” [...]
Here’s another shot from our little walk around Bear Lake. Sometimes you get lucky and sometimes you make your own luck. This shot is a bit of both. I had the girls sit on this bench thinking it would be a cute shot, but I didn’t realize until I snapped it that I was getting [...]
Today’s photo is of the wonderful outdoor theater at Red Rocks just outside of Denver. I’d love to see a concert here someday. The day we were there Kenny Chesney was in concert. It was sold out, so we couldn’t attend. But I’m not a country music fan, so I just enjoyed the scenery. With [...]
