While at the pier waiting for the vessels to sail off into the distant horizon, I was distracted by the numerous seagulls that began to take flight overhead. The two images of the seagulls above are two of my favorite along with the plant life on the side of the pier.

I have always been captivated by the natural grace and beauty of the swan. My quest to chase the light most resently lead me to the harbor in Monroe Michigan where I was able to capture these images. Most images we see of the swan most always depict them as "Love birds", this is due largely in the belief that swans mate for life (hmmm.. we should pattern ourselves after the swan). There are several types of swan, this being known as the Mute Swan.

This is one beautiful tiger! This tiger is one of four Sumatran tigers currently residing at the Atlanta Zoo. Unfortunately as reported by the World Wildlife Fund these animals are critically endangered, and it is estimated that only 400 remain in the wild.

ATL what a beautiful, beautiful city. After visiting, I can see why so many have decided to make Atlanta their home. I enjoyed four great, stress free days at the Hyatt on Peachtree Avenue in the heart of downtown. The two images posted were taken from my balcony. The picture with the blue dome is the dome on the top of the Hyatt reflected in the building across the street. Atlanta.... you will see me again!!!

Most of my free time is spent searching for the perfect subject to shoot. After ten years at my current job I decided to accept tickets to the KK Motorcycle race which is sponsored each year by one of our clients. These are three images shot that day. Double click any of the images to enlarge.

Photography, where do I begin? Well I'm currently enrolled at OIP&T (Ohio Institute of Photography and Technology) learning everything available that will lead me to the light. I have always been interested in taking pictures and received my first Kodak camera somewhere around the age of ten.
As long as I can remember I have always been the family photographer, it was just something I was destined to do. As a child I was always taking pictures, you see I have three brothers, three sisters and we had three dogs that I can remember so finding a subject to shoot wasn't too difficult. Oh the days of film photography, things definitely were not instant (I mean digital) back then. Submitting the roll of film to the local store for developing sometimes could result in a two or three day wait.
I would sit and wait (not always patiently) to find out if I at least captured the entire body of my subject. Lord please keep my image from the dreaded black hole, you know the monster that would paint a portion of your image black. I know I wasn't the only person whispering those words just before picking up what you prayed would be a good set of prints.
I could go on and on, however the purpose of this blog is to allow you to follow my progress as I continue to chase the light.
