If you want to know how good you are try shooting a scene that someone who knows it better than you do!!!  I really enjoyed shooting from the Hancock Tower tonight, but my images pale in comparison to Chris Smith’s!  Hey, but I learned a lot about shooting through glass!  I am looking forward to making images around Chicago with the help of his excellent book, “The Photographer’s Guide to Chicago!”  In this excellent book, Chris is kind enough to share all the most important details about how to shoot some of Chicago’s most famous landmarks!


God willing, and my alarm going off, and with some decent light, I will be back after it again tomorrow morning at O:Dark Thirty!


Here are a few of my near misses from tonight, hey Sherelene and I are having a blast, thanks Chris!!!

Easter is the beginning of Spring; flowers, blue skies, Easter eggs!  Wow, the colors!  O.K. that is not the kind of color I’m talking about!  Easter is the symbol of a new life, renewal, fresh starts, forgiveness!  Jesus not only changed my life forever, he elevated the color in my life!  By color I mean joy, the joy of His love and forgiveness, the color that family and friends bring into my life.  The rainbow that Sherelene has flooded into my life!  For me Easter and Thanksgiving have blended into one.  I am so very thankful for all He has brought into my life. Wow, the colors!


I pray that this Easter, you are filled with the joy and color that can only come from Him!  He is Risen!

Thanks to all of you that prayed for me and my trip to Liberty University, your prayers were answered!  We had a great time with the students and members of the photo community in Lynchburg.   It has been a great time spiritually and photographically!!  So much so that I’m going back and meeting with Jim and raising the idea of a workshop here in 2015.  This is a really great place to shoot, and fantastic people to hang out with!  There are two many great stories to share in one entry so I will do that in coming weeks, but I would like to show you some of the diverse things we shot while I was here with Tim Isaacson!  Above is the Old City Cemetery and these are the grave sites for slaves killed in the Civil War fighting for both sides!  Very interesting history all around Lynchburg!   Below is one of a number of great antique shops!



Downtown Lynchburg is very historic and the old Coca Cola Plant is just one of many sites being restored, there is much to shoot right downtown!



Below several diverse shots all from the Old City Cemetery!








Thanks again for your prayers, much was accomplished for the kingdom!
