Running Springs, United States


Thank you !

Thank you all so much. On October 1st.I was rushed to the hospital where I was diagnosed with a stage 4 brain cancer. The size of a golf ball. If they had not operated I would have been dead in a week. The wife took charge and was a wonder to all who watched her. God took charge of all other aspects and I just lay there and watched for seven hours.Needless to say I was home in a little over a week. Now my learning curve is going up daily but my live has taken but a new meaning.
Thank you all ever so much and God Bless.

A slight problem.

Please try to understand why I am not commenting and favoring your works. It has just started recently that I will see a word , understand it but not really be able to understand it.The word is there right before me and I must puzzle it out in my head. The same goes for typing out the words. I want to say one thing but unless I concentrate , it comes out very wrong.It does not effect my photography but does effect how I communicate. I will begin to say something and then forget the subject or a word.So please try to understand that I am not ignoring your works but my mind most times won’t allow me to type it.
I am currently looking for a program that will allow me to speak and it will write for me.
I have been to the best Doctors (myself excluded) and they say it is the result of smal…

Humor !

Farmer Jack once lived on a quiet rural highway but as time went by, the traffic slowly built up and eventually got so heavy and so fast that his free range chickens were being run over, at a rate of three to six a week.

So Farmer Jack called the local police station to complain, “You’ve got to do something about all these people driving so fast and killing all my chickens,” he said to the local police officer.

“What do you want me to do?” asked the policeman.

“I don’t care, just do something about those crazy drivers!”

So the next day the policeman had the Council erect a sign that said:

Three days later Farmer Jack called the policeman and said, “You’ve still got to do something about these drivers. The ‘school c…

Ever so softly.

This photo also known as "Hidden Beauty " has now become a classic example of simple American photography. It has gone viral on many professional photo sites and my model Chelsea Campo is now swamped with so many offers. As of this morning the photo has over 11,000 views and now I must seek out a publisher for posters. It is destined to reach cult status like those of Bo Derrek. But without the sexy photography.
Just happy that this photo started here at RB. Hope they are the ones who will make the deal for her posters. Even here in Israel I was told about this while out in the field doing a shoot of the women of the IDF.
Huge hugs to all.


I will be gone a little while with models taking care of contracts and meeting new models. Commenting when I get back.

My mountain.

Is the only place where it is a joy to hear children at play. Up and down the street without fear. Jumping ,running,laughing,screaming. Where they draw hop scotch patterns in chalk on the street. Where dad plays a game of catch with his son in the street and neighbors visit while keeping an eye out for skinned knees and other Bo,Bo’s . Where every child is secure in the knowledge that my wife is good to be hit up for a bowl of homemade blue berry cobbler. Where life may be slow but where morals and values are still taught and the worries of the world are down the hill.
These are the little things that I see. This is what makes life worth living when you get older. This is what it means to have great neighbors. This is what the mountain means !


Well tonight marks a milestone. My last photo , " Country Roads has sold over 100 20×30 copies at $55.00 each. Not ordered on RB but by phone . One day printing delivery . That’s more than ai have ever sold at Arab even when I post the link.

The Human Mind.

“The human mind”

The human mind is an echo chamber of thoughts and memories.
Emotion and feelings can be implanted and associated with memories while other memories may be washed away altogether.
And who has such incredible power? God.
We also can assess those thoughts and memories with that incredible gift of Spirit and heart. So let us put aside those memories that hinder our growth, step up with our Hearts and
Let our Spirits link together and seek a solution within ourselves, that we will be kinder,gentler and more loving towards each other.

Seeking not to destroy, rather to build a strong bond between man, God and those who are of a different race,religion,color,creed or have no beliefs at all!

Let us walk the road of life together, experiencing,love,pain,joy
Tears and happiness.
