Catching Up

January is almost gone. Yes, another month passed and it seems as if the older I get the faster things go. I’m not sure how it works, but when I was in Jr. High, it seemed as if time almost stopped. I remember looking at the clock tick forward, on school days, and watching and watching and watching… tick… tock…….. tick. Now, I have a daughter who will be 17 in a matter of months.

I know there are many of you out there laughing and thinking to yourselves, “he better buckle up.” I know. Laugh. Enjoy.

I’m on the ride of a lifetime. I don’t know if I’ve ever been so blessed. I have a wonderful wife, beautiful children… a job. I get to partner with one of the world largest Christian Humanitarian Relief groups known as World Vision, to help make a difference in the lives of children all over.

I’m buckled up.

I’m trying a 366 photo of the day project this year. Here are a few of the ones I’ve liked so far.

As February nears, I will be sorry that my Starbucks January mug with free coffee will expire. With that in mind, I’d better head out and fill up my cup.



I really wish…


Well, it’s a new year and although I had planned to publish something on January 1, I suppose it’s good I didn’t. I really wish I didn’t have that little voice inside bad talking me all the time. I’m not sure if you know what I’m talking about or not… It’s the voice that says, [...]


June Desktop


Well another month has come and gone… So it’s time again for another desktop. I asked in a tweet, “what should it be?” The two responses I got were, “Sunset” and “Warm.” So, I dove WAY back into some of my first photos. This was taken not long after I bought my first point and [...]




True North Helping Hands and I


Well, I turn 41 in just a few days and I will have the pleasure of spending it in Ensenada, Mexico shooting photos for a ministry group that helps build schools for displaced indigenous people. True North Helping Hands. Unfortunately my family will not be there with me. Last year, I was in Uganda on [...]


What am I thinking?


I’m not sure I’ve ever done this to a photo before or not… However, I keep thinking there should be a thought attached to this picture as in, “What am I thinking?” I love the old retro feel of this picture, but I just can’t put my finger on it. What about you? If you [...]


My King


Today is Good Friday. Hard to imagine good in so much suffering. However, in His death, He crushes our sin. That’s Good News. Isaiah 531 Who has believed our messageand to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?2 He grew up before him like a tender shoot,and like a root out of dry [...]


Multnomah Falls, Oregon

I wish I could say a lot about this shot. It’s not the best it could be, since I forgot to bring my tripod and thus, ended up handholding my camera with image stabilization on, just praying to get that flowing blur on the water and not the trees and rocks.I must say, there was [...]


Dominican Republic


Well, here we go again.


It’s time to pack my bags again. This time I’m off to the Dominican Republic with World Vision. My wonderful family has allowed me to share my gift of photography with others and I’m very grateful for them allowing this… Especially my son Adam who will be turning FIVE on March 21st.This map represent where [...]
