Tarmac ribbons criss-crossing the landscape, dusty back roads twisting between the cool shadows of ancient pines, and less traveled pathways connecting present to past, all I wander, seeking, seeing, with my keyboard and camera capturing scenes and stories to share with you.

Now in its fifth year, this venue has become an important part of my life, a place where I can express my thoughts and feelings about the things I see and do, hoping the process brings me a bit closer to friends and family who enjoy sharing my sometimes chaotic and often nonlinear observations and ideas. A journal, I suppose, but one with which I find pleasure in thinking others are alongside me on my journey.

MEETING BABY GRANT

... i drove up to bangor to visit with the tracys ... this day i was pleased that in front of my lens megan remained relaxed and candid ...

 ... as is his nature, dan immerses himself in the joy of childhood ...

... taken in an extremely dark room, here megan and dog share a moment ...

... while with the other dog she shared a laugh ...

... i like how dan looks right through the camera into my eye ...

... and i enjoy watching his little moments ...

... tom shows love of a being corralled wiggle-worm brother ...

... chad and i went over to the hospital to spend time with baby grant ... this little guy arrived into the world eight weeks early, but with the help of the science and miracle that is modern medicine he's thriving ...

... dad and child, such memories this stirs ...

... the beginning of a great conversation ...

... it was time to leave, but, both of us being well-seasoned fathers, we knew to take pause and debate whether this was a sneeze or cough ...

... back home chad introduced walker to the joy of corn nuts ...

... and, being walker, he made sure give us all a flash ...


... it seems that whenever i visit one of the five kids always manages to avoid my camera ... this night it was emily ... no matter, i'll make up for it next time ...

... what a wonderful day ...
