A Stitch in Time

I had to go to the Urgent Care in Clinton, NC tonight. I wasnt really pleased to have a one inch gash in my leg. The doctor gave me three stitches. My apologies to Carmen and her family for having to cancel the photo shoot that was planned for 6:30. A real wimpy cut for the amount of blood that came out of it. Luckily there wasn't any glass embedded in my leg. Thanks to the Doc for a wonderful stitch job and to GOD for not letting it be any worse than it could have been.

Family Portraits

This weekend I had a great time with the Pender Family, as they came to my studio here in Warsaw, NC. Sienna was about 2 months old and was a total blast to work with. She was up for any poses we tried and didn't cry the first time. It was really great getting to work with the Pender family again. I did bridal portraits and then had the honor of photographing their wedding.

God Bless America

We spent the evening of July 4th in Mount Olive, NC. I took my wife, kids and grandma to the airport runway to see this grand display. We were surrounded by corn fields! It was quite amusing that many folks were using the corn fields as restrooms, since there was no where else to go. I was as close to fireworks being launched as I have ever been. I was standing on the runway, as I took these 3 shots with my new Tokina 11-16mm f 2.8. I was really impressed with the fireworks display in the pickle capital of North Carolina! I hope all of you had a wonderful 4th of July. GOD bless America!

Summer Vacation

We spent a week at Cape Hatteras with my parents. The weather was great and the only complaint was the mosquitoes. The pool water may have been too hot too. Anyway, I was able to sneak away from the kiddies for a few minutes to take pictures. This is the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse just a few minutes after a double rainbow appeared. Had I been just fifteen minutes earlier, I would have had an incredible shot. Thats half of landscape photography...right place..right time! It is good to be home and get back in the swing of things! I hope all of you have a great summer!
