Christmas Morning 2009

December 26, 2009

Christmas Morning Christi and I headed to Harley Davidson of Las Vegas Nevada to photograph a homeless outreach that served 17 turkeys, 8 hams, numerous side dishes, 20 pies and 1 birthday cake to around 300 people. The outreach group also gave out a sanitary kit, blanket, wool beanie, gloves and a tote bag, all of it brand new purchased through donations from the various groups and churches that participate.

This is Cody the coordinator.
Not that long ago Cody was addicted to crack and homeless himself. The first year that he was back on his feet, he and his wife Heather made a turkey dinner and took it to the park where they had lived while they were homeless and fed 20 people on Christmas morning and he says “I knew what I was called to do and 5 years later, look how we are able to help…”

Merry Christmas!

A Tale of Two Important Anniversaries

December 10, 2009

The First Important Anniversary, is that today on December 10th Christi and I have been married now for15 years.
And in honor of my beautiful bride, I put together a quick slide show from an assortment of Christi photos that are residing on my laptop, then scored it with “Rebel Waltz” by the Clash, this has always been our song since we met 22 years ago and it was also our wedding march.

The Second important anniversary is that it has been 30 years since the release of London Calling by the Clash (December 14 1979)
Here is one of our favorite songs from that album “Guns of Brixton”

New Website Pages

December 7, 2009

My photo444 site is in the process of under going changes in layout, design and content and one of the things I wanted to add was an iPhone gallery. I love shooting with my iPhone. To me it is the equivalent of digital Polaroid film. While my “real” cameras might spend the day tucked away in their cases, my iphone is always shooting something creative, allowing me an outlet everyday. So here is a first look at the gallery pages before I load them.
