    I decided to hook my camera up to the car and take some photos while I’m driving around. Got some neat outcome.

    The view is from the passenger side of the car.

    This summer, we met with family again to attend Jeremy’s high school graduation. We also got a chance to go to the beach for a few days so everyone can get nicely tanned before the photo session.

    Here is Jeremy wearing his graduation rob with all his honors and diploma.

    And one final portrait before he heads off to college.

    Of course, I snuck in some portraits of the other kids while I was at it.

    All the kids

    … now having fun

    Finally, the moms did their “thing”

    It’s not very often that the kids actually dress up for anything. But it was necessary for the piano recital. So, I took this opportunity to take a few snapshots of them.

    My youngest is currently not camera shy…

    While the two olders ones have become tired of Dad’s antics. Nevertheless, I was able to snap a few.

    That’s what my daughter told me after playing in the snow. The kids loved the snow. As an adult, this was probably the best case snow for Atlanta. That is, there were plenty of snow for the kids to have fun. But the roads were cleared of any ice by the next day.

    Every so often, we try to make it out to a nice dinner. With my parents in town, we took the opportunity to go to Canoe. Everything was great, but I must say, the service was the best. Here’s a few pictures of the awesome meal we had. Unfortunately, I can’t really remember the exact names of each dish.

    We first had some soup that was cold. I have to admit, I’m not into cold soups! So the waitress swapped it out for a warm pistachio soup below. The warmth was great, but the soup also tasted very unique and we enjoyed it immensely.

    Here’s an awesome pork dish served two ways. I can’t describe which ways are the two ways, but they’re good.

    And, the peppercorn New York strip. Again, very tasty!

    And the highlight of the night, a strawberry cobbler. It may have been the first time I’ve had a cobbler that’s strawberry, but it was amazing.

    And a quick shot behind the restaurant from the Chattahoochee River.

    This is our first trip to an air show in Atlanta. The weather was perfect for an outdoor event. Blue skies, not grey. We got started late but finding parking wasn’t so difficult. However, getting from the shuttle to the show was another story. There were long lines and I’m sure it took well over an hour before we entered the gates at Dobbins Air Force base.

    Once we were in, the first plane we saw was the Navy F/A-18F Super Hornet. Here’s a picture of it on the verge of breaking the sound barrier.

    Then came the F-22 demonstration. I was amazed to say the least.

    Here’s one where (what I call) the bomb doors are opened.

    Then the F-22 joined the F-15E and the P-51 Mustang for a “Heritage Flight”

    To wrap up the show, the Thunderbirds demonstrated precision flying. This brought back memories as I used to have a model plane of a Thunderbird as a kid.

    Here’s my favorite shot taken by my Mom.

    And finally, Mom took a photo of me photographing the Thunderbirds. Yes, that’s my daughter in my left arm while I weild the 100-400mm Canon L lens around.

    To see more images from that day, click here. I have to give credit to my own Mom for a few images at the end of the gallery!

  • The American Harp Journal

    Back in October, I blogged about Rhett and his Atlanta Harp Center. Today as I was working, Julianne rushed in and said “wait right here, I have to show you something.” Minutes later, she showed me the American Harp Journal. In it, near the front cover is a picture I took of Rhett’s harp used as an advertisement for the Atlanta Harp Center. Here’s what it looks like.

    It looks so good on a full size magazine.

    This year, we headed down to Orlando for Independence Day. We were running late to attend the fire works show at Avalon Park in south east Orlando. But everything worked out and we got there just in time for what turned out to be a great show.


    One thing I noticed about the show this year, the fire works looks so much like flowers.
