This post has been a long time coming. As we all know once the holidays hit things turn upside down, sideways and get a little crazy to say the least. Just a heads of for the two of you that read this haha, this will be my last blog until after the new year. Along with the holidays my family and I are taking a trip to Italy, so my priorities are going to be elsewhere, but enough about me. Read More
As anyone who follows me probably knows I really enjoy taking candid images of people. When you catch people being themselves and not posing you can capture who that person really is and a lot of priceless images. Read More
Welcome to 1982, this was the year I let my hair grow out like Scott Baio and gave myself my first tattoo with a pin and non-toxic ink. What else happened in 82? I'm glad you asked. Jump into the Delorean and let's take a trip back in time.
In 1982 Doctors performed the first implant of a permanent heart, Michael Jackson releases Thriller, the very first CD player was sold in Japan, Time magazines man of the year was the computer, EPCOT Center opened and commercial Whaling was ended.
The median price of a home was $67,800, average income was $21,050.0, gas was $0.91 cents, a bag of cheese puffs was $0.89 cents and a GMC 1500 Pickup was $5,400.
The hot movies were, E.T., Rocky 3, Porky's, An Officer and a Gentleman and Poltergeist. On TV we watched, Magnum, P.I., Dynasty, Falcon Crest and Knight Rider
Now to make you feel really old, born this year was Kelly Clarkson and LeAnn Rimes.
Now for my favorite part, the Music. Here are my favorite songs in order from 1982. Enjoy Read More
With the popularity of cell phones and the fact that the cameras on these phones keep getting better and better I thought I would give you a few of my top tips for taking better pictures using your phone.
In my opinion, nothing will replace a professional camera for professional quality images but you can get some pretty darn good images with your cell these days. A lot of my Instagram images on my running profile are done with my cell as well as a few on my photography profile when it comes to low-resolution images on the computer it can be hard to tell the difference. So here are my tips for taking better pics with your phone. Read More
I THINK IT MAKES PERFECT SENSE TO PROTECT YOUR IMAGES WHEN YOU RELY ON THEM FOR YOUR LIVELIHOOD BUT I ALSO KNOW NO MATTER WHAT MEASURES I TAKE, NOTHING WILL STOP DISHONEST PEOPLE FROM STEALING MY CONTENT AND PHOTOS IF THEY REALLY WANT TO. I FIGURE IT'S BEST NOT TO WASTE TIME TRYING TO ACHIEVE THE IMPOSSIBLE, IT'S BETTER TO SIMPLY TRY AND DETER DOWNLOADERS BY MAKING IT DIFFICULT TO ACCESS OR USE MY PICTURES. Read More
Aside from my family and photography one of my other passions in life is fitness, with an emphasis on running. For as long as I can remember I've been reading about and studying the fitness industry and science of the body. Also for as long as I can remember fitness hacks have gotten under my skin. Very few things tick me off more than these so-called wellness or fitness companies ( and I use the word fitness loosely ) and how they sell outright lies to make a buck and get away with it. Each time I see a new commercial for the latest and greatest weight loss product I cringe and start to mumble incoherent vulgarities at the tv. So to vent, venting is good therapy or so I'm told, I thought it would be fun to talk about some of the craziest, silliest, downright stupid, money wasting exercise equipment of the past few decades.
I was going to do a blog on what seems to me to be the number one lie being sold and that is spot fat loss. Most of the equipment I'm going to show you claim that it targets certain areas of your body for fat loss. Shake me and your arm flab will go away. Push me and your beer gut will disappear and you will have the chest of a Greek Andonis. Swallow me and you will lose 10lbs overnight. That last one might be true as you will be stuck on the toilet for twenty-four hours thinking you're going to die. Read More
