An Unexpected Blessing

One day Tanya's cat Aloysius apparently decided to see what hype was all about, walked into my photoshoot and laid down.

Please share one of YOUR unexpected blessings?

World OutGames 2009 - Opening Night

Copenhagen is hosting the World OutGames 2009 - the official Games for LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) athletes.

I am proud to live in a society that is accepting of everyone regardless of race, religion, and sexual orientation.

Denmark was the first nation to legalize same-sex marriage, or "registered partnership" as the term is here.

Please be respectful if commenting. Any disrespectful comment WILL be deleted!

Although understanding of everyones right to a different opinion than mine I draw the line at slander and hate.

Thank you.

And to the OutGames contestants: Welcome To Copenhagen!

Night Photography Workshop

During my resent trip to California my friend Tanya and I spent four days in Yosemite.

Being a huge nature lover the National Park is everything I could have ever imagined - and more. Gorgeous natural wonders, trails, wild life, and sunshine... I already look forward to returning.

While there I joined a photography workshop offered by the Ansel Adams Gallery. The theme was Night Photography, and with the full moon blasting attending this class is just about the best thing I ever did for myself!

If you follow this Blog (or my personal Blog for that matter) you'll know although I specialize in people photography I tend to shoot anything my heart desires thus with encouragement from Tanya and my friend Kimber I signed up for this unique opportunity.

Although I have yet to post process these are my favorite workshop shots - straight off the camera.

- What are your plans for this summer?

- And what are your thoughts on the state of California closing some of the State Parks?
