Oh the sheer fun of taking a camera on a hike with no real purpose other than to just photograph whatever strikes my fancy! Such a whimsical experience is not so common a happenstance for me any more these days. There always seems to be some sort of grown-up distraction from the old-fashioned hikes I […]
Just a few shots from our very adventurous trip to Grandfather Mountain. Thank you Uncle Tim and Aunt Melba for letting us stay at “the mountain house”! It was just the perfect spot for a family vacation.
The latest from Lenspiration! Everywhere I go, I’m always meeting new photographers! It’s so much fun to pass around tips, share stories, and simply learn from each other’s experiences.

(It’s interesting what goes through a head while trecking through the woods with a weed-whacker.) How much fun you expect to have justifies nothing. How much fun you had was entirely […]
What a refreshing time enjoying the unity of fellow believers in a whirlwind of profitable activity! Times of planning, times of work, times of rest, and times of play, but all of them were times of joy. I wish we had pictures of the volleyball and ping pong! What a joy it was also to […]
