When you have been around as long as today’s subject it would be natural for you to have some might sad stories to share. We think today’s shot will be in his album cover. We anticipate one of his biggest hits will be great songs such as “Mine!”, “Sad tale of pulling a tail”, and “Crying over spilled milk”
I am happy to have been selected as the official photographer for his upcoming tour as soon as they will let him get his own passport and travel alone.

It was only a matter of time. My cat has finally made it on the blog. Meet Kitty (I named her, and, yes I am not very original) I met kitty back in the winter of 1997. After church on a bitterly cold afternoon one of the high school student came and reported a meowing in her engine. I crawled underneath and found a tiny little fur ball sitting on top of the transmission.
She was very, very young when I found her. For the next few weeks I spoon fed her milk. She cried terribly the first few nights, but soon tappered off. She has been a great companion through the most dynamic times in my life.
This shot was taken as she napped on the back of our couch with our track lighting pointed her way.

For dessert last night at church the meal team made up several varieties of very tasty rice crispy treats. The leftovers found their way to the the lobby this Sunday morning.
These evil little treats FORCED me to eat like 6 of them. Dang them! On the bright side, my friend Daniel let me use his brand new Tamron 18-270mm lens for today. I took several hundred shots today and fell in love with the convenience.
Having one lens that has that huge range is amazing. From close up wide angle to long range shots, it does it in seconds. It focuses very quickly. Has nice weight to it, feels nice. My only complaint is it sticks a little bit as you get to the 140-200mm range. I imagine it will loosen up with time.
