I close my eyes, but I can’t fall asleep, my body dying for rest while my mind’s wide awake.

Just deleted the Tumblr account. Once the Flickr Pro membership runs out in March 2017 I will delete my Yahoo account. Good riddance.


“A book is a loaded gun in the house next door…Who knows who might be the target of the well-read man?” – Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

So I’ve decided to chip away at my F#$k It list by tackling the easiest ones first. Small victories and all that. I haven’t found any book clubs nearby that didn’t include Oprah-reading women’s only groups but the search continues. I grabbed three classics including Fahrenheit 451, A Brave New World by Aldous Huxley and The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway.


The only rules that matter are these: what a man can do and what a man can’t do.

I was so done with lies and pretending and living for everyone else. I didn’t care what anyone thought of me; it couldn’t be half as bad as what I’d been thinking of myself for years.
– J.H. Trumble, “Don’t Let Me Go”

Today I am reminded to be grateful for those who love us and support us, regardless of the circumstances. 

Really enjoying watching the kid work on her own images and website.


Found a photo from 2010 of my young photographer with her newly inherited Olympus. Also testing out the new logo watermark.

I’m on Snapchat. Add me if you are into that sort of thing!

Why do I shoot portraits? Because I love capturing personalities that may otherwise be hidden. I’m blessed to have met so many fantastic people. Thanks for sharing your life with me and others.

This blurred image? Was me dancing of course. (at El Big Bad)

Just got fairy dusted by this guy at the Pride Parade.
