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.

QUINCEAÑERA

... yesterday evening it was my privilege to be invited to take pictures at patricia's "quinceañera" ... she's the soon-to-be step-daughter of my brother's friend, erick ...

... it was a wonderful night, one filled with joyous emotion, traditional ceremonies, good food, energetic dancing, and, from beginning to end, great joy ...

... the pictures i took can be viewed and downloaded from this public folder ...


... at shutterfly the pictures can be viewed, printed (to a local cvs or target, or delivered by mail), enlarged, and made into bound albums ...


... patricia, thank you so much for allowing me to share your "page out of a fairy tale book" ...
