Kimberly took me up to Nebraska/Iowa to meet her family. It was my first trip up to that part of the country and I had a wonderful time. Her family is just great. Spring hadn’t arrived yet, so it was pretty brown and overcast for most of the trip. There still were a few hints of winter snow. I only pulled out my DSLR at her Dad’s farm near Sioux City. Never been on a farm before. Lots of interesting stuff. Porter the cat, who is in a lot of the shots, was more dog than feline. He followed us all around just like a farm dog.
Some photos from today’s playgroup! It was a surprisingly hot day! Read more
Was out driving on Marquardt Rd in Boerne, TX and saw this!
Mission Miracle K9 Rescue was doing evaluations and running playgroup last Sunday at Kirby Animal Shelter. Lots of people and dogs showed up! Here are some pics! (Note: The people looking at their phones in many of the shots are videoing the dog interactions. They aren’t looking at their FB page ;-) ) Read more
Didn’t do any serious shooting this trip. Weather kinda sucked and left my good glass at home. Shot these with my Nikon D500 and my 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6. It’s just a gut feeling, but I think my D750 has better dynamic range and is better suited for landscapes. Still, the D500 is no slouch.
Some shots near Wimberley, TX. Got engaged this weekend too! :-D Read more
In my May 7, 2016 post, “Nikon D7200/D750 owner can’t click the buy D500 button…so far,” I laid out the reasons for my hesitation in upgrading my D7200 to the new D500. Basically, I felt that my D7200 was “good enough” and I used my D750 most of the time anyways. Well, Nikon finally put the D500 on sale and I had to reassess my position. Read more
Well, it’s Black Friday and I had to–quite literally–get up at the crack of dawn to…that’s right, take photos of some dogs! HAHA This special group of dogs from the Kirby Animal Shelter was boarding a transport captained by Matt Montes bound for the great Pacific Northwest and beyond! Good luck my canine friends!

Took some shots of ducks, egrets and cormorants down at Grass Valley Lake. Set up some bird seed and zip-tied a dead branch to my deck railing and got some nice shots of Stellar Jays, woodpeckers and even a Northern Flicker. The birds didn’t seem to care it was a set up ;-) Read more
