You Need A Plan

My Advice To Millennials I could be wrong. I’ve been wrong before. I think I’m seeing a real trend with the so-called Millennials. They are coasting through life without a plan. No plan, no idea, no clue, no goals, no values, no work ethic, and no desire to get out of the bed of life…. Read More

So you want to be a MODEL

DISCLAIMER: Although you might find something useful in this article, keep in mind that I’m not a model, and I have never worked or contracted with an agency.

Review – Atkins Meatloaf

A Little Deceptive As a photographer, I’m visual minded.  When I started my diet, I had to go to the store to pick out some sensible low calorie, high protein items for dinners.

1976 I was in Love with this car
Age 15, 1978

Like the song goes, it was 1978, my hair was long, my thoughts were short. Boston’s “Don’t Look Back” was blasting on my radio. 9th grade at Laplata Junior High was awkward in Hereford Texas.

Hernandez Quinceañera

It was a beautiful day. The skies were bright blue, and I headed over to the Sacred Heart Catholic Church. It is a historic church not far from downtown. Shadowy and dark, with light pouring in through the stained glass. The Quinceañera Court began to arrive, girls in blue and white dresses, and the guys… Read More
