Summer reading fun!

Monday morning Peoria greetings to one and all!

One of the things that I really enjoy doing is helping out our local charities and non-profits by donating some of my photography or in the case of this gig, shooting some photos! The Morton Community Foundation was started in 2000 and has been helping fund a number of great programs in the Morton area. Lynne and Dan Walters wanted to give back to the community and along with MCF have funded a Summer Children’s Reading Program through the Morton Library. MCF wanted to get some shots of the Walters reading with the kids, so we got out last week and helped them out! Here’s one of my favorite shots of Lynne Walters reading with North at the Morton Library!

Thanks as always for checking out my snaps and I hope that you have a great week to come!!!!

Tower Park

Monday morning Peoria greetings to all!!!!!

I’ve been in Peoria since the early 80′s when I first came here to go to school at Bradley University and in all the time that I’ve been here, I’ve never been to the top of Tower Park in Peoria Heights! I think that it’s always that way that you just never visit some of the places in your local area that some might think of as a tourist area. Here in Central Illinois, we have lots of places like that, so it’s good to get out and support our local attractions!

I was up at the top of the tower and for those that have never been up there, it’s an incredible view! They say that on a clear day you can see 20 miles and I believe them! I was up there at sundown and I was just blown away with all that you could see! All I had was my point and shoot camera, but I still got some incredible snaps! I can’t wait to go again with my big boy camera when the trees start budding and there gets to be a little color in the river valley!!!

Here’s one of my snaps and the view is up the Illinois River to the North and also out to the East as well!!!

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

The happiest day of the year!

ХудожникMonday morning Peoria greetings to all my friends around the world!!!!

You’ve heard me complain about the day that we turn the clocks back in the fall as being one of the unhappiest days of the year for me! I just hate it when the sun is going down and it’s getting dark at 4:30 pm at night!!! It’s usually cold and the wind is blowing and then you add the fact that it’s dark by 5:00 pm and that all adds up to be a very unhappy time of the year for me! Now it’s the flip side of that and we’ve turn the clocks forward and we’re heading to the longest days of the year when it’s getting dark at 9:30 pm and I’m loving it!!!!

I was out shooting some snaps this past week for local Peoria attorney Joe VanFleet of his office and staff for their new web site. We had a lot of fun and were able to come away with a lot of very nice shots for them! Here’s a few of the shots that we got last week!!!

Thanks as always for checking out my work and I hope that you have a great rest of the week!!!!

Monday morning Peoria greetings to one and all!!!!

What’s going on? If you asked me that question, my response would be “not too much”! This is always a very slow time of the year for me, so I’m trying to keep myself busy with projects and getting caught up on things here at the studio!!!! I did get out yesterday morning and snagged a couple of snaps of the Peoria Riverfront and as always, it looks great!!!!!

I hope that you have a great week to come and thanks as always for taking the time to check out my work!!!!
