I happened to look out the back window on a bright summer day, and saw my daughter blowing bubbles in the backyard. I quickly grabbed my 70-200mm/f2,8 lens and stealthily snapped this shot.

My old hosting company had also, finally, shut it’s doors after all these many years (perhaps more about that later). This new site will take care all of my photography and design efforts, replacing four separate sites. It’s been a fun process, starting over from scratch. It is also nice to finally have some time to work on my own project. Take […]
