To me, the main and most exciting thing about photography is to meet people. The picture is the result of what happened between me and them on the set. ~ Francesco Carrozzini (Italian – Photographer Born: September 9, 1982)

Camera in hand I showed up for the 2014 Gasparilla Criterium full of enthusiasm, even though the rain started almost as soon as I got there. I found the perfect spot to get great photos of the cyclists with the winding road and the fencing around the track. The cyclists would need to turn right in-front of my vantage point.
The summer is almost over and the fall colours are about to expose themselves.
Only $50 for a 1/2 hour portrait session in the park.
Do you feel a half hour is not enough time for your family?

Life is just a journey.

(British – Royalty / July 1, 1961 – August 31, 1997 )
No one had ever told me that whites were supposed to sing one kind of music
and blacks another
– I sang what I liked in the only voice I had.
~ Charley Pride (American – Musician Born: March 18, 1938)
I remember walking into my sister-in-law’s house and hearing her favorite Charlie Pride Album filling the house from the floor model stereo. She loved his music. So much so that when she passed away her husband the song that played as we left the funeral home was “Chrystal Chandelier”.
We had the chance to see Charlie Pride perform at the 2014 Strawberry Festival in Plant City, Florida. We even paid extra to ensure we had good seats closer to the stage. It was worth every penny to see Charlie Pride sing live.
There is only you and your camera.
The limitations in your photography are in yourself,
for what we see is what we are.
~ Ernst Haas (Austrian – Photographer / March 2, 1921 – September 12, 1986)
All children are natural actors, and I’m still a kid.
If you grow up completely, you can never be an actor.
~ Kirk Douglas (December 9, 1916)
Most importantly December 9th will be my youngest sister’s 50th Birthday.
She may be an adult, a wife, a mother of 3 adult children,
but to me she will always be the baby pointing at the camera.
Admitting Error clears the Score,
And proves you Wiser than before.
