No problem . it just didn't sound like something you wanted and there were
several derogatory slurs on the tags.

Really the ONLY way to travel to Key West. No traffic, no hassles, free parking. We really enjoyed the Key West Express when we went.

The Photo Cascadia team is holding its annual gathering on the Oregon coast this weekend. By chance it lined up with the total lunar eclipse this morning. Unfortunately we had 100% cloud cover this morning, so I don't have any new eclipse images to share. Instead I'll share this image I took of the total lunar eclipse I photographed in 2007 in the Siskiyou Mountains. If you are interested in how I created this composite of the entire 6 hour eclipse you can read this blog that I wrote on the Photo Cascadia blog a while back. http://www.photocascadia.com/blog/?p=126

This image was a winner in the Nature's Best Photography awards and is featured in the 2012 Nature's Best Calendar. Did anyone out there get photos of this year's eclipse? I know +Gary Randall did.

OK ... I may be silent until I learn what the heck I am doing here ... looks like this could provide some communication short cuts ... for now, I will tip toe around.

Obviously the management needs to review their reputation in Google because the location is way off base. It is the correct address but it is in the plaza in front of the Prime Outlets rather than west of I-75. They have excellent martinis and great pizza. It's a classy little gem in a convenient location.

Both Stephen and April bring great sound and professional service to every event. When it comes to weddings, forget the wedding planner and hire the person who will make your event memorable! Their idea of success is to get everyone on the dance floor!

Kim gets it! She is a delight to work with, extremely creative, professional and provides great value. I gave her an idea of what I wanted and she has built the brand. She even incorporated my logo into my custom wine label. She is a dream to work with!
