Fritz and Pedro – Frio River, Leakey, TX 1996 or so While continuing to dig through the archives, I came upon this negative, taken with my Yashica Mat 124G, back some 16+ years ago. Of course, I have cropped it because I felt that it worked a little better this way rather than square. I don’t have a lot of photos of my first Miniature Schnauzer, Fritz. I had Fritz for about 11 years (1988-1999) before he got out and…

Well, the count says 8,503 photos, though in truth, I have no idea how many I shots I took this year. After my massive clean up, there’s no way to tell. It doesn’t matter. I had a great year this year. I traveled a lot. I met Anita, Bill, and Ibarionex in California – that was a nice threefer!. Went to Joshua Tree National Park. Visited my friend Richard in Texas. Went to The Grand Canyon, Mexico, and The Bahamas…

Combat Chuck! Regarding some people, I guess that you can just tell by their steely eyed glare what adjective you should put in front of their name! More of how he got that name, shortly. I spent a fantastic Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning with Combat Chuck, or CC for short. Chuck, of Chuckography, lives in Charleston, SC, my old stomping grounds. I first met Chuck back September of 2008 when I attended his meet-up group called: 21st Century Photography…

A shot from one of the original LensBaby lenses This was the question that my guys asked me the other day and this year, for about the first time, I had a good answer for them, one that they could afford and one that I will like – no need to have it exactly on Christmas Day, either. I’ve been putting my office together in my house and it most certainly has a photography theme to it, so to add…

This trip, I’ve been more of a tourist rather than a photographer. We’ve been all over the place including into the town of Nogales, Sonora, Mexico. Deb has been a good sport. On Saturday, we took the 45 or so minute ride from Tucson, AZ to Nogales, AZ. Nogales, AZ is the U.S. side of the border. We parked, and walked across the border into Mexico. Deb had never been to Mexico and therefore didn’t know what to expect. I…

I’ve done a fair amount of traveling this year. At the end of August, I was very tired of traveling. I was glad to stay at home. During that time, I just rested, photographed around home, and had a good time. About early November, I had to put my remaining vacation days onto the calendar. I called up Deb, asked her if she’d like to go on vacation with me, she agreed. We decided on Tucson, AZ. As we were…
