I started this blog on 02/06/2012 with a post on Captain Beefheart. Since then I have added 500 followers not including those that follow on Red Bubble Twitter,Digg,Facebook,Pinterest etc. I have published 575 posts and over 200 hundred articles for EHOW. Counting EHOW and Red Bubble views my works have been viewed by over 2 million times in 35 countries.
All that said, I am most proud of the 500 followers of this blog. I only know a few of you personally and also am connected to those people through Facebook,telephone and face to face visits. However the rest of you check in regularly, like and comment on my posts and share with me your own unique view of the world. Thanks for reading, thanks for posting and have a wonderful holiday season!
As for us, next week in Cancun, home a week and than off to Florida for two months. It’s time to get out from being in front of the computer and back behind the lens for a while. So although posts will be erratic over the next couple of months they will all include new images from a variety of location so please stay tuned. This is a SUNRISE, not a SUNSET.
On Saturday we are venturing to Quintana Roo and our Westin Condo at Lagunamar in Cancun for a week of fun in the sun. We have never been there before. People have told me that the white sand beaches at Cancun and Islas Mujeres are the best in the world. After all it is where the Movie “Ten” was shot and all men my age can still see Bo Derreck’s slow motion trek across the sand in their mind’s eye. We shall see. This is Ka’anapali Beach in Maui County in the State of Hawaii and still my favorite white sand beach. We shall see.
I took this image when I worked on the space shuttle of a glass cube floating in space. Just kidding I was never on the space shuttle. The image had to be manipulated to eliminate the background and string holding the glass cube. It was shot in a studio and the print was manipulated in the dark room with film masks and multiple exposures. Ah, the good old days.
Tomorrow we are shipping up to Boston to see family and friends and enjoy a great meal. However, it is not so great for these guys! There is no hunting where we live so these guys are safe. Most of us will eat farm raised turkey’s tomorrow or maybe Tofurkey. Still in the spirit of the Native Americans we stole this land from, I want to thank these turkeys for giving their lives so we can provide sustenance at our family gatherings. I also want to give thanks for my family and friends, this wonderful country and those who defend it and to my increasingly larger number of fans who follow and read this blog. Have a great holiday!
This photograph was taken long before our society became scared of our own shadow. Now our government officials and media pundits constantly use fear to sell their positions. In the 1970′s there were no hand sanitizers and we didn’t know about lime disease. I can’t imagine a parent allowing their child to kiss a deer today, but back then it was no problem.

Yesterday I posted an image of Canyonlands NP in Utah. You don’t have to go into a park to see the natural beauty of the land. This is on a state highway headed towards Bryce Canyon National Park not far from Panguitch Utah.
Out of all the states I have visited, Utah was the biggest surprise. I don’t know what I expected but it seemed that every turn of the road brought new vistas that were prettier than the last. This image was a throw away image. I never looked at it twice until today. I had such wonderful shots of the hoodoos of Bryce canyon and the delicate sculptures of Arches National Park. I never looked at this one as being special but now decades later I think it is quite a nice image. This is Canyonlands National Park near Moab Utah.
