Back in the day, I supported PETA for all the undercover work they did and exposing the horrific things that are being done to animals, from animal testing to cruel farming to the fur and ivory industry.

I still support the stopping of those activities.

But euthanizing rescued pets?

No.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals killed most of the animals at its Norfolk, Virginia, shelter in 2014, according to preliminary figures filed with the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. The group euthanized 2,45...

I love this owl shot
 
Takeoff!

Patience paid off for this one. After trying for months to get a good flight shot of these beautiful Snowy Owls, I ended up with quite a few yesterday. After spotting this owl sitting behind these rocks, I spent an hour sitting in the snow hoping it would end up flying in my direction.

It was such a nice change of pace from previous trips here, with over 50 people standing around at times, to the only people around yesterday being myself and one photographer. With much less of a crowd, this owl took flight and ended up going 10 feet or so past me. These owls have a wingspan of around 5 feet, and having it come so close was incredible!

Friday, November 29 2013. It is a day I will never forget. The day I quit smoking. The day my life changed. I came down with an upper respiratory infection about a week prior that just wouldn't go away. I also had COPD. Nothi...

The title is inspired by a song from Mandisa, one of my favorite Contemporary Christian singers, "What If We Were Real?" The lyrics speak of the masks we hide behind, with the thought provoking question, what if we took off t...

Friendly greeting as soon as we come in. Great food, always fresh. Super family atmosphere and this restaurant is very involved in supporting its community through fund raisers. My new favorite place to eat.
