…or somebody’s got to do it!
Here’s Devon and me getting ready to go experience a 2,000 year old bath in northern Tunisia.
I’m turning 50 years old today. Wow! 50! It seems old, but I don’t feel old. It has given me time to think about my life…a little reflection, I guess. I wouldn’t trade my life with anyone.

HDR photo-processing lends itself better to certain kinds of photography. I like it for showing people who are working.

I have taken photos of my daughters all over this world, and this is one of my favorites. Devon just happens to be wearing the pink/maroon combo which looks stunning with the beige wall behind her. I also think the photo works well because it follows the rule-of-thirds twice, and there is action and a story. It was taken in UAE on a bright and comfortable December day.
