Winter? What Winter?

Well, this weekend was a bust photography wise, pouring rain and high winds do not make for good pictures. However the good part of the weekend is that the Seahawks are going to the Superbowl again.
Hopefully next weekend will be better and I'll actually get to get some shots in.
All I can do for now is hope for another foggy morning and a productive trip to the local cemetary here in town.

We haven't really had a winter this year, oh we've had a few down right frigid days, but it's been warmer than normal this winter, I mean days where we have almost hit 60? anything in the 50's is not normal for the Pacific N/W in the middle of winter.

I do  have a few ideas bumping around in my head, just need to get those ideas to be made and confirmed into actual plans.
More about all that later.

Have a great week everyone!

Wow, here it is another New Year, another chance at a new beginning, I have alot of places I would love to go this year, most are places I've been to before, but last visit was many years ago, I think this year is going to be one of New Adventures and revisiting parts of my past, places that were a part of my childhood. places like Madras, Prineville and Silverlake and Fort Rock area. 

And speaking of new beginnings, I will be breaking in a new Rheumatologist next month, this time i have more information, know what to expect, and know what questions to ask and I will not be shy about telling this one my expectations. 

Now I reckon I should post my top 12 or so favorite shots of 2014, so here we go, a bit of a mix of Landscape, Flower and Wedding Photography. as I got a few snap shots of a friends wedding back in September, first time ever shooting a wedding.
