Jumping back into the fire!

Monday morning Peoria greetings to one and all!!!

I have a feeling that a bunch of us were traveling for the Thanksgiving weekend and if you were, hopefully it was safe and uneventful. I made it back from spending the holiday with my folks and as always it was great to be out in New Mexico and enjoying the great weather! It’s not that it’s been horribly cold by any stretch in Central Illinois this past month, but it sure is hard to beat mid 60’s and sunny!!!

We are jumping right back into the fire these next couple of weeks and already have a ton of work to get done! In past years things have always been a little busy right after Thanksgiving and then by about the middle of December things would start to slow down and we’d wind out the end of the year. This year that looks like that’s not going to happen! We still have a road trip to make in a few weeks and I have a feeling that we’ll be busy right up to Christmas. We kicked things into high gear yesterday and we’ll keep rocking till we get everything done in the coming weeks!

Here’s one of my photos from the Dripping Springs Natural Area in Las Cruces.

It’s time for us to get busy, so you have a great week to come!

Monday morning greetings to one and all!

We are rocking and rolling into Thanksgiving and amazingly it’s about 10 days away and to me that’s so hard to believe. I keep talking about time flying by so fast and I guess that when you are busy, it seems to go faster and faster. At the rate we are going, we’ll hit Thanksgiving and then the next thing you know Christmas and New Years will be right there just as fast! It’s crazy I tell you.

I’ve got a couple of more images to share from our trip out West a month ago and today we have a couple of images from the Page, Az. area. Jan’s got an image from Horseshoe Bend and mine is from Lake Powell. The thing that’s amazing to me is that I’ve been by Horseshoe Bend a number of times and never knew that it was there! Just South of Page about 10 miles is Horseshoe Bend and it’s really very easy to check out. There’s a parking lot just off of Rt. 89 and you have a nice little half mile walk to the area where you can view this spectacular scene. For all these years it was so close and yet so far. I guess there’s always surprises around every corner if you just look for them!

Here’s our photos from the Page, Az. area, enjoy!

We hope that you have a great week as always and thanks for checking out our snaps!

It’s about time!

Monday morning Peoria greetings to one and all!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know that the Chicago Cubs won baseball’s World Series last week. Now as happy as I was for myself, I was more happy for my dad. At 82 years old and growing up about two miles from Wrigley Field, he’s seen a lifetime of disappointment in his Cubs and it’s always been “Wait until next year”. Well miracles do happen and the Cubs finally did it. I talked to my dad on the phone the day after they won and he was still beaming about the nail biting game that won it all!

A couple of quick stories about my dad and Cubs baseball. When he was a kid, it cost a nickel to sit in the bleachers in Wrigley Field and he said at some point the Cubs raised the price of the bleacher seats to a quarter. He said that when they did that, the town about lost their collective minds as to how expensive tickets had gotten. The other story is that my dad and his buddies would collect bottles for their deposit money and turn them in to make money for tickets to the games. They would skip school to go to the games and the irony of that is that my dad became a high school teacher!

Enough of the baseball talk, let’s talk some football. I was able to get over to Washington, Illinois on Saturday to shoot a high school playoff game and it was a perfect day for a game and photography. Washington ended up beating Centralia 23 – 16 and I was able to get a few good photos and that’s always a good thing!

Here’s a couple of my shots from Saturday’s game!

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