Winter River View in Michigan

Today when I was traveling around a little North from where I live I came across some wonderful conditions again for photography.  Taking some time to admire the beauty, I thought I would share this image with my blog readers as it to me was worth it.

The Beauty of Christmas 2013

Yesterday on Christmas Eve my wife and I took a drive and spent several hours just taking photos of the beauty around us.  Earlier in the week there had been an ice storm, and the days that followed were peppered with snowfall.  On Christmas Eve the clouds left for awhile,…

Butterflies are Living Art

A few years ago my wife and I went to visit the Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids in May, and shot videos of the Butterfly exhibit that is held there annually. If you have ever tried to photograph or video butterflies, I can tell you it is not as easy…

A Forgotten Tree of Yesteryear

Bronze Giraffe Art

I love to see giraffes sculptures and statues.  This is one I came across in Florida a few years ago, and I just had to stop and snap a photo.  It was on display in downtown Sarasota if I remember correctly, and it looked pristine in condition.  Made you want…

Adding on to my earlier post on statues, here is a collection of photographs from other statues I saw while visiting Florida a few years ago.  I always find statues to be interesting, and I love it when I see so many of them standing around a downtown area.  They…

Statues I Saw in Florida

Florida is always a fun State to go visit.  They have all the great beaches, really.  The weather for the most part is nice as well, although it can be sticky at different times of the year.  I always carry my camera with me when I travel anywhere, and I…
