A Few Words From the Photographer...

"What's Right With The World" is a theme that I felt was appropriate for my style of photography. I love to travel, explore and challenge myself with the outdoors and it's adventures.

There are so many negative things happening in the world, it seems like every newspaper, TV and radio station tells us of: Wars, dysfunctional families, murders on schools and campuses, racial hatred, slanderous political media coverage, crime, terrorism, pollution, disease, starvation, homeless human beings and so much more. This site is dedicated to all the things that are right in this world, which all to often, are taken for granted.

Is it Easy Being Green

This photograph was taken in Napa, CA. It features the essence of the Napa area and the grape fields where some of the best wines in the world are created. Notice the growth of foliage on this building. A rare and unique photo for any photography lover. Some things in life require a little more attention than others, this is a great example of what it takes to be different and to stand out in front of the rest!

Wild and Free

To get this photo, I had to take my chances on getting trampled. It was taken along the railroad tracks in Cordelia, CA. Theses are horses I have never met, and you can see in their eyes, they mean business. When we fear all different things in life, we become inhibated, but when we are "Wild and Free" life seems to coast along a little smoother. If I wasn't so afraid these guys were going to crunch me, I may have been able to really enjoy that moment in time, when this photo was taken.

How often do you find a place you can go to and just dump everything on your mind and just free all your thoughts? This shot was taken at Sugar Barge in Bethel Island, CA. This setting was picture perfect for "just letting go" of all the day's challenges and obstacles. When you're ill, you go to a Doc, when your mind feels ill, you should go to the Dock...

A Rare Photo - A Life Lesson

I have always wanted to capture a photo of a "hummingbird in flight", but it is almost impossible. If you're a photographer, you know what I mean. I went into the backyard this afternoon to help my son do the yard-work, and we noticed that the bougainvillea tree needed some trimming. As I moved closer to the thorny limbs, I noticed a hummingbird sitting on the branch, not two feet away from me. Getting a shot like this was like capturing lightning on film. Definately a rare photo opportunity.

I slowly backed away, ran into the house, grabbed my Panasonic with the Leica lens, and managed to return before the bird had received clearance from flight control. This time, he let me come within a foot to capture this shot just before he flew away. These birds are FAST! In two seconds, he/she was gone! I took 40 shots in burst mode and got these two shots from different angles.

"Don't Miss Your Moment!"
"Catch Me If You Can"

I know this has nothing to do with anything, other than sometimes, it's just being in the right place, at the right time. Isn't life the same way? Sometimes we are in the right place at the right time, but sometimes, we just miss it! I am guilty! For me, today was a lesson in life.

I have never been able, or quick enough to get a photo of the hundreds of hummingbirds I have seen in my lifetime, yet I have always wanted to. It's true, good things do come to those who wait.

"Be Very Still""Once In A Lifetime"

Are you reading between the lines here? What good things are waiting to happen for you. Don't give up, they may be just around the corner!! Don't miss your Kodak Moment! :-)
