Pincushion Cactus

Several years ago, my wife and I visited Lake Brownwood State Park in Texas. We got away from the kids for a few hours and had our cameras to enjoy the outdoors.

A Conical Dome Of Glass

The story of this picture I took is simple. While trekking around the concrete and steel jungle of Singapore, snapping my camera at a myriad of sites, this one stood out amongst them. You can't not look up at this thing when standing under it. The tower of glass and steel angles form this cool... Continue Reading →

A Majestic Scooter

I’m not saying I succeeded, but I enjoyed it none the less. When I thought about sharing my pictures of late, I... Continue Reading →
