TJ in 2007

This is a shot I took of TJ a few years ago sitting on his skateboard. When he isn't being a teenager he can be so sweet.

Temperature Gauge

We had an ice storm here in Texas today which is a rare thing. I snapped a shot of the temperature gauge on the grill. I like the juxtaposition of the ice & the gauge pointing to hot along with the warm and cool tones on either side of it.

Snow Day

Today the kids got a snow day which is a rare treat in Texas. I snapped this picture of one of the neighborhood kids.

Papa in 2009

I took the opportunity to take some shots of Papa while we were visiting. I wanted to get a shot of him holding his famous root beer mug. He is also a jewelry designer. He and his wife traveled all through Colorado searching for stones.

Papa & Mimi in 1939

I went to visit my girlfriend's Papa this weekend & scanned this shot of him & Mimi. It was taken right after they got married in 1939. He proposed to her two weeks after they met. They met while she was working at a root beer stand. The root beer mug still sits on his shelf almost 70 years later. She passed away last weekend.

My New 50mm Lens

I bought a new 50 mm f/1.4 lens for my camera which gives me a super shallow depth of field. I took a quick test shot of one of the neighborhood kids with the lens wide open.

TJ's Foot

This is one of my favorite shots of TJ. It captures his personality perfectly. The worn out skate shoes & the video came controller in his hand.

This was a shot of Mackenzie taken at Easter several years ago. I love how her mouth is full of candy.
