Thanksgiving and New Mexico

Post Thanksgiving greetings to all,

It was really nice being out in New Mexico last week to see my folks and celebrate Thanksgiving with them. The weather was great and it’s always nice being out there at this time of the year!

While I was out there, I was able to get out everyday and shoot some personal photos for me which is always a great way to get back to photography as a hobby! One of my favorite spots is the Dripping Springs Natural Area just outside of Las Cruces, N.M. and I go there every time I visit my folks! Here’s one of my snaps of the Organ Mountains.

It’s time to get busy this week, so thanks as always for checking out my snaps and I hope that you have a great week!!!!!

Wichita Falls, Tx. and Thanksgiving!

Sunny Monday morning greetings from Las Cruces, N.M.,

I’m down here in New Mexico for Thanksgiving at my folks place and looking forward to warm weather all week (mid 60’s and sunny)! On my way down here, I swung by Wichita Falls, Tx. and grabbed a quick snap of the falls.

I hope that it you’re traveling this week to visit loved ones for Thanksgiving, you’ll come back safe and sound!

Have a great Thanksgiving week!

Rain and a 427 Shelby Cobra

Rainy Peoria Monday morning greetings to all,

I was supposed to be shooting farming stuff this week and we got spanked again by the rain and bad weather here in Central Illinois! You’d think that it was March instead of November out there! Oh well!

We did have a 427 Shelby Cobra in the studio last week, so I guess that makes up for the disappointment of this week!

If you’re traveling this coming weekend for the Thanksgiving week, have safe travels and make it back home in one piece!

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

Monday morning Peoria greetings to all!

We’ve finally been getting some great weather in Central Illinois the past week and I’ve been out shooting a lot of harvesting stuff with the farmers! I was also able to get out and get a really nice shot of the city of Peoria as well. Here’s my snap of Peoria and the riverfront from the Bob Michael Bridge on the left to the Murray-Baker Bridge on the right.

I hope that you have a great week to come and thanks for checking out my work!

The most depressing day of the year!

Cloudy Monday morning Peoria greetings to all!

There’s not too much in life that depresses me, but when we turn the clocks back from daylight saving time, it kills me! Yesterday I’m at home watching NFL football and Nascar and life couldn’t be better! Since we turned the clocks back yesterday, here’s the sun going down at 4:30 pm and by a little after 5:00 pm, it’s pretty well dark! I hate that! Like a migrating bird, I think I’m going to head down to the Southern Hemisphere for their summer!!!!!!

Besides turning back the clock, the weather (rain) has been killing my farming and harvesting shoots, so that means more football (yea)! The IHSA play-offs started Saturday and I was out shooting a game between Washington H.S. and Rich East H.S. (Park Forrest, Il.) and it was a great day to be outside! The game wasn’t even close though with Washington winning 42-0, but I did manage to get a few good snaps!

Thanks as always for checking out my work and have a great week!!!!!
