My hope is that everyone had a joyful and relaxing Thanksgiving this year surrounded by good friends and family! I was blessed to have spent some great time with my relatives, especially my grandfather who was a wedding photographer many years ago. Today he blessed me with all of his old cameras that he used during his days. I'll be sure to share them with you all later.

Things have been crazy busy lately so it's taken me awhile to get around to posting these pics. Here's the latest slideshow of the trip. I plan on playing with the pictures a little over time and will post those as they come along. For now, here's one of my favorite shots of the Brooklyn Bridge and a slideshow to go along. Enjoy!

So, I'm recovering from my first week back from New York City! What an AMAZING trip! Three photographers, four days, and not a single thing to photograph (okay, so the last isn't completely true). You know it's gonna be an "interesting" trip when you are welcomed by the picture below.
The first thing I noticed was the name of the apartment complex, "RED SQUARE". Next, a statue caught my eye up on the corner of the rooftop - a statue of Communist leader VLADIMIR LENIN. But it's what you see hanging below the Communist leader that made me laugh. Yep, a banner of our new president elect - BARACK OBAMA!
In a nutshell, what do Red Square, Vladimir Lenin, and Barack Obama have in common? Hopefully nothing besides this complex in NYC!
As I go through all my pics, stay tuned for more postings to come!

Halloween is always a blast... even as an adult! Each year we go over to my sister's to hit up her neighbors for some goodies. (They have a much bigger neighborhood!) My favorite part about the night was the way my daughter Libby "tricked" others into giving her more candy.
Sweets are very limited in our household and we decided that when we got back home and poured out all the goods, the kids could each pick out their top ten favorites and we'd send the rest overseas to the soldiers. Libby used this to her advantage to increase her odds on getting the goods. She would tell a bunch of givers how we were sending a bunch over to the soldiers and they'd tell her to grab a big handful then. Why didn't I think of that when I was a kid?!
Our children do have generous hearts and she really was doing it for them. If only we all thought like children at times! Anyway, here's a slideshow of the gang out in the hood. Enjoy!
