...Time to fly!


......the areas I planned to visit this Fall. The area on the left was thoroughly scouted for pics last Spring while the area on the right not so much, but was a beautiful drive nonetheless.. Just read a report from the Georgia Forest Commission concerning the leaf colors this year. While still beautiful I don't think I will find the colors I did last year. But I still cant wait to get on the road again!! Sunday morning will find me heading out and becoming a wayfarer once again..Will be posting pics from the road...!!

Jazmin.....




I was asked to shoot for a local magazine today. The subject was nothing short of a absolute "Angel". She is a very courageous young lady as she has a condition that's inoperable and is now back at home spending her remaining time with her family and friends. As a photographer I have covered a wide variety of subjects but never anything of this magnitude or of a personal level. It was an honor to do this assignment and with the gracious permission the family, allowed me to post these very intimate pictures of Jazmin for a celebration of her life. The magazine will be published soon and I will link to it from here...As an EMT I deal with death from time to time but with children its never easy regardless of the situation..As I sat there, taking pictures, the writer interviewing her, her voice barely above a whisper, she answered questions as best she could. Me, behind the lens, looking into her eyes and fighting back tears as the camera snapped moments in a life that will be unfairly shortened. But when she flashed a smile at me during the shoot it seemed to say "don't worry, everything will be alright"...Even in sadness there is comfort found....Please keep this family in your prayers...

..Life as I know it....

Sorry for the huge delay in posting pictures..My Fall road trip is all planned and ready though. "Planned" meaning I haven't a clue where I am going or a destination in mind. I do know the direction and that being north to the mountains of Georgia and North Carolina. Five days of roaming back roads. This hopefully will be kicking off on Halloween. More photo work awaits as well as three weddings by years end. Going to be a very busy end of the year for me and I am very happy. October is my favorite month, cooler weather is here, getting chilly at night with pleasant afternoons.

We also have a new addition to the family..


Meet Ziva..A stray puppy that wandered up to our home. She won me over with that goofy grin. A good scrubbing and hot meal and she was ready for a nap. As I blog here tonight she is lying on my bed.. sound asleep...
