Targeting photographers as potential terrorists

I read something disturbing the other day about a hobbyist photographer who was harassed by guards at Disney World for taking pictures. It’s not the first time I’ve heard of such a thing, but it’s just as depressing each time I read an account of people being targeted as potential terrorists for photographing something just […]

Annoying people with your photography habit

I’ve learned over the years that there’s sometimes a fine line between enjoying your love of photography and just flat out annoying the pants off of the people around you.

The Story Behind the Photo

Photography provides us with the ability to freeze a moment in time; to make it static and permanent. Every photograph has a story behind it that is just as much a part of the picture, even though it may be unseen by the person viewing it. For instance, this is a photograph that I took […]

Kiss Me, I’m Irish!

I really am. Well, part Irish. My great-great-great grandparents on my mother’s side came from the Emerald Isle. Nowadays, though, you don’t have to be Catholic or Irish to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day. So wave your shamrocks with pride and celebrate the beauty that is Ireland. Also, you don’t really have to kiss me. An […]
