Cropping and Aspect Ratio

When you go shopping for a picture frame, what’s the most “common” size you’ll find?  8″ x 10″.  It’s been like that for… well, longer than I’ve been around.  I remember when I first got into photography, (the film years) and took my film to the drugstore to get processed.  I had 4″x6″ prints made,… Read More

Get Out Of My Head Whataburger

My Foil Hat I’m a little worried about Whataburger. Apparently, they have figured out a way into my parietal lobe of my brain and figured out what makes me salivate like a starving Great Dane. I heard a commercial on the radio the other day that they were introducing a new burger: The “Chorizo Burger”… Read More

Bossy People

We All Know a Bossy Person We all know that one person. The person who isn’t happy unless they are barking out orders to those around them. They are easy to spot in the workplace. They are quick to jump on employees who aren’t doing it right, and even if they are, they aren’t good… Read More

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

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. I had already gotten some little steaks, some chicken breast filets, and some tilapia.  I was going through the frozen dinner section… Read More

First Love

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.

Where I live – Bulverde

I moved here in 2004 from Amarillo Texas. I had a U-Haul with my Harley Davidson motorcycle, my camera, and a few guns, arriving in Bulverde in 2004.
