Naples, Florida Christmas 2011.  So nice to be in sunny weather and on a beach in December, but something also unnatural about it. I think I will always be a Cleveland boy at heart and like snow around Christmas time.  The Osprey with fish picture was honestly a lucky shot.  I was kayaking in the   Read More …

All of the distillery grounds were immaculate, but the professional and perfectly groomed Woodford Reserve was   Read More …

Finally finished the site after three months of work! Editing, resizing, testing various print labs and pretending to know about building a website finally culminated into this! I will blog once or so a week, but the main focus of this is to keep taking photos and building a good portfolio up while continually improving.   Read More …
