Nauvoo, Il. and the LDS Temple

Cloudy Tuesday morning greetings,

I hope that you had a safe Memorial Day Weekend and survived the high gas prices!!!!  I have a feeling that a lot of American’s might not be traveling as far from home this summer with the high gas prices and that leads to todays photo.  I was out on the Harley (42 mpg) last week and rode down to Nauvoo, Il. along the Mississippi River.  For those that haven’t been Nauvoo,  it’s a pretty neat little river town and there is a very pretty and huge Latter Day Saints (LDS) temple there!  Here’s a quick snap of the temple and the grounds.  

Thanks as always and I hope that you have a great summer!!!!!

Memorial Day Weekend and a Dodge Viper

Soon to be rainy Monday morning greetings!

I can’t believe that next weekend is the kick off to summer (Memorial Day Weekend) and I’m certainly ready for a little warmer weather!

I had the chance to shoot a new 2008 Dodge Viper in the studio last week and as you can see from the shot, it turned out pretty darn good!!! I can’t image the amount of gas that this bad boy can put away, but I’m sure it’s a pretty good amount!!!!

Thanks as always and have a great week!!!!!

Springtime in Peoria!

Sunny Monday morning greetings from Pioneer Park,

About six weeks ago I sent out a promo with springtime photos from Memphis, Tn. and I knew that our time here in Peoria was coming for the same weather and foliage.  I didn’t think it was going to take six weeks to happen though,  but it’s indeed finally here!  I got this shot last week on the road from Grandview Drive down to Forrest Park nature center and there was just something about all the colors from the blue of the sky to the green of the trees to the pinks of the redbuds along with the curve of the road and the yellow divider lines that I really liked!!!  

Thanks as always and I hope that you have a great week!!!!

Year 18 and counting!

Sunny warmer Monday morning Peoria greetings to all,

While I was out on my West coast shoot a couple of weeks ago, I turned the page on another year in business! We passed year 18 and are a few weeks into year 19! I’m amazed ever year that it continues and I feel very fortunate and blessed to come into the studio and am ready to rock and see what each new day brings! Thanks to all of you, this happens every day!

Here’s a quick snap from the Oregon coast and it sure was a beautiful day!

Thanks again to all and have a wonderful week!!!!
