Hitting the Road Literally on a Trek Madone 2.1

Pride really does come before the fall, even literally. I guess looking back at my first wreck on Wednesday I would say I was probably pretty proud I had never wrecked a bike as an adult, motor or cycle, nor did I ever expect to wreck, and certainly not on a bike less than a…

Aviation Photography Spotting at Las Vegas McCarran Airport :: Throwback Thursday

Early this morning I was looking through some previous photo shoots from about 10 years ago, which today is my next edition of Throwback Thursday. In one respect, I can't believe this was 10 years ago, it sounds so long ago when you say it like that, but when I look at the images, I…

Heading to Entebbe International Airport for the Long Ride

This is the last trip post before we get on the plane in a few hours. I will continue to post some photos from the trip over the next several weeks and months as I go through the thousands of images I've taken over this trip. I can't reflect over this trip any more, especially…

Learning to Processing 16684 Miles and 15418 Photos :: Friday Feet

Apparently I didn't exactly take 1 photo per mile traveled on this trip to Africa but I came pretty close. I'm still trying to recover from sitting in a metal tube at 35,000 feet for some 20 hours but I'm also trying to figure out how to process what we saw and did on this…

Almost Time to Say Goodbye to Uganda at Least for Now

This has been a trip that really is hard to describe in words, really. It took 66 books of scripture to go over God's plan for His people, so trying to describe how God moved in and around our team over the last week feels almost impossible. I'm glad I had the ability to take…

Photographic Week in Review of Outtakes :: Saturday Summary

I started thinking about all the photos I take during the week that never see the light of day. They could be photos on my phone or when I haul around my DSLR (which is most places right now until I find a suitable replacement for everyday stuff like the x100), but most get archived…

The Fillmer Birthday Party from October 1953 :: Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday today is from October 1955 and would be Larry Fillmer's 7th birthday party. I just love these old black and whites. Apparently back in the mid-50's you dressed up for a birthday party since one of them is wearing a suit and bow-tie and I love the card table, which was probably literally…

Summer Camp Cornerstone 2011 Gets Underway :: Photos

So it's that time of year again when all the churches in the country move into VBS mode (we actually call it Camp Cornerstone here, doesn't sound quite as scary to me, but doubt the kids care what the name is, they always have a blast). Anyway, last night was the kick off for this…

Saturday Morning Macro Flowers Before the Heat Arrives

I think I spent an hour or longer last night looking for a single wildflower to shoot and found nothing. We have had so little rain here this summer that nothing wild is blooming, until I woke up this morning and looked right outside my window. I always forget about these tiny little violet wildflowers.…
