This was Someday Saturday Today with Pine Needles

I really hate "someday," because usually, someday is just no-day. That usually ends up being my answer when I don't want to do something, or can just put it off to some unknown time in the future that may or may not ever come. This is why people create bucket lists, so some day doesn't turn…

From Denver to Auburn for a Summer Visit

This week our family from out in Colorado came out to see us. We had my son (Bryan) and his wife (Sara), her mother (Karen), and their two previous kids (yes, our grandkids), who are 9 months (Luke) and 6 years old (William), out from Denver to visit with us. It was a short visit, but…

On This Day 19 Years Ago We Said…

This is of course the day we said "I DO" to each other, some 19 years ago now. I'm not going to post a ton of photos as I have in the past, but I will share this one random shot above when we were walking away down the isle. On a side note, being…

NASCAR Atlanta Motor Speedway Photos :: Throwback Thursday

I thought I would really mix it up for my Throwback Thursday post for today. I have had many aspirations as a photographer over the span of 20+ years worth of shooting, and since I pretty much loved all aspects of photography (see Flickr), I have pretty much shot everything. I have shot from stars…

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…

The View from Estes Park Colorado in September

Our view from the cabin in Estes Park looks out over Longs Peak, which just got a dusting of snow over the last night or two. The temps are above freezing at around 8,000 feet where we are, barely, but it's cold enough. I don't get a chance to do self-portraits very often but I…

The Four Fillmer Boys as We Welcome Luke into the World

Well one down and one to go. Today we welcomed baby Luke into the world today at 10:07am in Longmont Colorado. Luke weighed in at 8 pounds and measured 21 inches and seemed to be totally at peace with his own existence within a few minutes, hardly even cried except when various nurses jolted him…

Scott in the 1971 Volkswagen Camper Van :: Throwback Thursday

Yes, it is Throwback-Thursday and yes, this is me in the family Volkswagen Camper Van, a shot taken in May of 1971 when we were apparently on a trip to Colorado Springs. There are many other shots of me years later when I wanted to drive (like in 1972) where I am sitting on the…

Man’s Best Friend Helps a Self Portrait

I hardly ever do the classic self-portrait but I just happen to need one today.  They always seem so bland to me, (I really like something like Brian or Rob I shot a while back, those were two of my favorites). So what else can you do to spice up a portrait if you aren’t…
