Fall in the desert

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

I was able to spend the last week out in Las Cruces, NM. with my folks for Thanksgiving and as always it was wonderful! The weather was perfect and it’s hard to ask for much more then sunny days and 70 degrees!!!! One of the best things is that I got to experience the fall color twice this year! In the Midwest, the color was ok, but not great and probably becuase of the drought. At Thanksgiving in Las Cruces, the leaves were turning and I was there at the right time to capture it!!!

Here’s a couple of my snaps from the desert and my second go around with fall color!!!!

I hope that you’re going to have a great week and thanks as always for checking out my work!!!!

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

For my friends here in the Untied States, this Thursday is Thanksgiving and this week is a short work week for a lot of people. Some people have already traveled this past weekend and more will be taking time off and making a traditional four day weekend into a little more!

I’m down here in Las Cruces this week for my traditional time with my folks and it’s great to be here on many levels. The weather is just about perfect with lots of sun and the temperatures in the 70 degree range. My mom does a turkey and loves to watch all the different Thanksgiving parades on TV and my dad and I usually wash my car and then watch some football games and that’s a lot of fun!!!

I have lots of things to be very thankful for and I’m very blessed that I get to take pictures for a living and my clients see value in what I do!!!!

I hope that you and yours have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!!!

Safe travels to those that will be traveling and have a great week!!!!


PS, Here’s one of my shots from the drive out here to New Mexico and there’s something about this part of the Untied States that I really connect with!

Caterpillar Visitors Center

Monday morning greetings to one and all,

A few weeks ago I shared some photos from the grand opening of the Caterpillar Visitors Center and also the Peoria Riverfront Museum here in Peoria, Illinois. I was able to get out since then and shoot some “glamour” shots of the CVC building durning the day and the night. It’s a good looking building and a photographers dream to shoot!

I hope that you’re going to have a great week to come and thanks as always for checking out my work!!!!

It’s time to fall back

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

I always hate it when we turn the clocks back from daylight savings time and there’s just something about it getting dark here in Peoria at 5:00 pm that depresses me! Oh well, I guess I could spend the next six months in Australia and I wouldn’t have to worry about it!!!!

Along with the time change, the trees have pretty much lost their leaves and you know that winter is on the way! Here’s one of the last fall scenes from a road trip to Iowa a couple of weeks ago!!!!

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