There's a chance that my dog Otis is the cutest dog that has ever lived!

Here he is sportin' his new haircut at 16 years of age. This was photographed 2 days ago in the driveway of my neighbors house...

Cool Things...

I went to get my brakes done yesterday at The Craft Shop Garage by a great guy named Paul. I was so inspired by his beautiful shop that I broke out my camera to take a few photographs. Paul was nice enough to give me free reign to shoot anything I wanted. While he spent the hour fixing my brakes, I spent the hour photographing all his fascinating car and bike things. Once in a while Paul fixes a break or tunes up an engine, but his specialty is restoring old vehicles and motorcycles.







Paul makes very cool lamps out of car parts. They're really ingenious. He's sold most of them to stores and commissions so to keep a record of them he keeps pictures in this photo journal...

Tara and Tom Get engaged!

I have known Tom for the past 5 years. He's a great guy with an infectious laugh that seems to always find the humor in every situation. Then entered Tara, a creative, down to earth woman with a twinkle in her eye and a mischievous voice. Together they are a perfect balance, warm, fun and most notably, loving and respectful of one another. One day Tara called to say she and Tom were getting married and that they wanted me to photograph their wedding! I was thrilled for the 2 of them and honored that they chose me as their wedding photographer. I photographed their engagement this past rainy Monday just like the song, but it didn't get me down...






While Tom was carrying this chalk board out into the rain from his garage, I thought to myself, couldn't he move his stuff around later after our engagement session?! With a devilish grin he craftily turned the chalk board around so that it faced the camera and to my and Tara's surprise there was a message written on it...
