This is an appetizing building with a tasty history.

Photo Friday: All About the Lights

September 29, 2017

I recently changed jobs, and that means the pictures I can take to and from work has been extended to the city.  I wanted to get a nice shot of the city building tower, at night without flash, and this is my result.  I increased the ISO to 3200 and adjusted the exposure to compensate.

City Tower

I love the way the lights play on the architecture, and bring out the texture of the building.

Photo Friday: Framed

September 15, 2017

The Art of Photography, on YouTube, posted a challenge about framing the subject, and I found this guy biking in Portland between two signs.  The color in the signs are too distracting, so I changed it to black and white.

We have a few chipmunks living in the rocks in the gazeebo out side our building.  I found this one watching me come home from work.

Photo Friday: Recycled Material

November 18, 2016

Litter is a problem we’ve had to deal with for a very long time.  The government has passed laws imposing heavy fines, and established a time, like Earth day, to help solve this problem.  While these measures have helped to reduce the problem, it still continues.

We already know the down side to this litter problem, but is there an up side?  Nature has made use of our waste material.  The oceans are littered with ships, and other wreckage,  of which the oceans are making use.  Today’s picture is another way nature has taken our litter, and turned it into something it can use.  This bird nest has turned what looks like a plastic bag into a liner to help strengthen the nest.

It’s been a while since I posted one of my photos, but I took this one yesterday, and it was so special to me I felt the need to post it.  I hope you all enjoy it.  I decided it would look better in Black and white.

Now that I’ve given the lamest excuse not to go to the gym, now let me give you the best reason to join one.

Day 22: Who I Am

January 15, 2012

Who I Am


I am not defined by

The clothes I wear,

I can not wear emotions.

I am not defined by

The money I make,

Money can’t buy my thoughts.

I am not defined by

The buildings I own,


No house is big enough for my love.

You can’t place me in the box

You have made for me,

For only I have that power.


If I write

I am a writer,

If I play music

I am a musician,

No matter what anyone else says

I am what I say I am.



I appreciate all of you who have been liking my poems and photo.  If you want to see the video visit my channel at

Day 20: The Building

January 13, 2012

The Building


I grew up with this building,

I grew up in this building.

It was started the day I was born

And built as I grew;

Each floor another year,

Each brick another memory.


The building is quite tall now;

Nearly eighty stories;

I’m starting to see cracks in the walls,

And some bricks are falling from the top floor.

Every day more bricks disappear

Along with the memories that they represent.


The building is now rubble,

And I am now gone;

All that remains is

The memory of the structure

That once stood as my life.



I realize this poem is a little serious.  If you want to see an explanation of the poem go to for the video.
