Hi, thank you for reading. Photography and writing are two of my favorite things so blogging is the perfect creative outlet for me. I started blogging in February 2009 and have written almost 800 posts.
I’m married, a central Phoenix homeowner (I love Phoenix, specifically downtown), and a cat rescuer (we currently have 6…1 inside, 5 outside, with some other visitors…and have placed many others). I’m an alumnus of Arizona State University.
I made WordPress’s Freshly Pressed on September 26, 2011 with this post and again on March 29, 2012 with this post! Nature is my favorite subject…birds, butterflies, anything else that crosses my path but birding and bird photography are my favorite pastimes. I’ve had some photos chosen for Friday Fotos by Arizona Highways Magazine. Here’s the album where they are all together.
Also for their “Moonstruck” album, on September 28, 2015:
Arizona Highways also has a Photo of the Day on their website. They have used 5 of my photos so far, on 1.29.17, 5.4.17, 12.2.17, 4.14.18 and 10.6.18. The first 4 were bird photos and the last is a landscape! I would so love to be in the magazine itself someday…my dream along with the dream of most other Arizona photographers.
One of my photos (of Lynx Lake) was included in a short video that Arizona Highways compiled to celebrate Nature Photography Day on June 15, 2019.
All of these Arizona Highways photos are in an album on Flickr.
I have a photo credit in 4 books.
I’ve won the Pennington Wild Bird Feed Weekly Photo Contest 3 times with these photos of a Phainopepla, Gambel’s Quail, and Labber-backed Woodpecker:
