Life as a living donor…my story

This isn’t a photography related post other than I’m a photographer….my story of being a living donor below. Almost two years ago John came into my life by way of an email. That email was sent out asking a few people at my church if we would be willing to take John to his dialysis

Mountain biking/photography in Sedona and Flagstaff Arizona

It seems I often run into the same dilemma …I want photos but I don’t want to stop riding to shoot them. When visiting places with grand views like Sedona and Flagstaff it makes sense to want to shoot photos to capture the beauty of these places…but then they also offer amazing mountain bike riding.

Making the most of changing weather…Mountain bike photoshoot.

With a free Friday night and an itch to shoot and ride, I sent out a couple texts looking for riders to come along. With daylight savings in effect I assumed we would have 3 hours or so after work if we got busy right away. As the time to shoot and ride crept closer

I don’t think its a secret that I carry the Flipboard flag…in fact this is my second time writing about the app. You can read how the stormy love affair began by clicking here. This time I’m writing because I feel like if you are a Twitter user who isn’t using Flipboard you are missing
