Sometimes the best photo-ops are the ones you never set out to capture. Oftentimes I’ll be sitting on the bench in the backyard and suddenly an unanticipated photo-op occurs. It is these moments that keep me with a camera by my side whenever I am in the yard.
Imagine lounging on the beach under the shade of palms, the sounds of waves gently lapping along the shoreline all the while sipping on an ice cold domestic beer with a little lime wedge bobbing around inside. During this semi-seaside-siesta, you spot local children peddling conch shells and an old man with a small monkeyContinue reading “Paradise is a Beach in Honduras”
Doesn’t that person snapping photos from the window on an airplane annoy the hell out of you? Well, if they do… I’ll offer an apology to you right now cause that person is me.

Fortunately, this time of year, it is quite cool at night still and mosquito free. With that said, I’veContinue reading ““Waning Gibbous,” I’ve been called worse.”
At one time or another I think everyone dreams about a white sand tropical island getaway. Kris and I were fortunate enough to have lived the dream a few years back when we visited the enchanting Isla Pasión out of the port of Cozumel Mexico.
As we all know by now, I love to spend time outside in the yard these days.
