And the July winner is...

...Tamara!!! Super glad for her. I know she REALLY wanted to win this one. I think she owes my baby something for picking her number... She has won a matted version of my lighthouse picture.

It's me

Hey guys. Just wanted to let everyone know I am still here. It has been a busy month. August looks to be just as busy. One of the things that I am planning to do is ship my camera off for a factory cleaning. That means I may be unable to take pictures for a couple of weeks. :-( I guess I will reprocess some of my older shots during that time. Unless someone just wants to buy me a new one with the auto-clean feature... Hint hint :-)

Anyway, I will be posting the winner for the drawing tomorrow. Until then, enjoy this shot from last summer...

Great Clouds here

Thought I would share some of the clouds we have been having lately. Normally, we only get the stratus clouds, but these have been great. I am sure it has something to do with the atrocious heat wave that has been gracing us with its presence.

Yes, these were taken in the Walmart parking lot, but hey, you have to take them where you see them, right?

Don't forget to sign up for the July Giveaway here. Drop me a line or comment below when you have signed up. It is very easy and you get a shot at winning a great looking picture... (I think I may be a bit biased...)

July Giveaway

In celebration of our continued growth and the milestones that we have reached (over 2000 hits and over 500 hits in one month), this month I am giving away a matted print. Pretty cool, huh?

This is one of my pictures from my recent trip to Pennsylvania. In order to enter the contest, you can share this on your Facebook page, become an email subsciber, or a follower of this blog. The link to share it is in the top right corner of this post.  The follow by email box is toward the muddle on the right side. No spam from signing up on that feature. I know because I am also a user. Email me if you have any questions (

I will let this one run through the end of next week. At the end, I will assign everyone a number based on when they entered and then have one of my kids pick a random number to see who wins. Good luck to all. Can't wait to see how this one ends up

Bird Pictures

Still trying to process through pictures from my vacation. Here are some sea gulls that I saw at Lake Erie. I think the first one is my favorite, but I like the contrast of some of the others. What do you think?

Nieces and Nephews....

Yeah, you guessed it. This post is about my nieces and nephews... Went to visit them this past week, so updated pictures were mandatory...
