The Factory

I was driving to the store yesterday and just thought I should take a picture of this salvage area near our house. I drive by this place a lot and have always had a fascination with industrial sites for photos.

I only had my phone with me and had to park across the street but I thought this turned out pretty good.

A Day to Chill

Well, I took a day off from work and just did what I wanted. That included taking some photos, writing and visiting my beautiful wife at work to have lunch with her.

It was so relaxing, I think we all need a day where we just do that for ourselves…just a creative day, whatever you want to create.

So I started my creative day by heading down to a place called Lusk Park in Appleton. It was nice and relaxing and I just took some photos and wrote the poem I posted earlier. Here are some photos from there…it was a monotone kind of day so I did most of my photos in some form of monotone.

After the Park I went and had some lunch with my wife…Jersey Mike’s Subs….yum, my favorite sub place.

Where she works is near the Fox River so I decided to walk down some steps to see what I could find down there on the Fox Trot Trail.

It was a wonderful day even though it was pretty windy…so if you get the chance to take just a day for yourself, do it. It is some of the best therapy money can’t buy.

Another New Page

I have created another page that showcases color photography. I decided to do this as well because some things shine so much better then black and white and need that splash. My photography is going to start becoming more predominant in my work; it is my first passion.

The photo below is a walk I took yesterday in a town called Oshkosh…I know most are thinking of Oshkosh B’Gosh…lol.

I decided to blend some color with the black and white, give the splash of color to the photo…blue is my favorite color so I added a splash of blue.

This piece is from about 5 years ago…whew how time flies. It was inspired by the photo I took below.


These Bars

Holding me in or holding me out
Why are these bars all about
Trapped within my own mind
The way out I hope to find

These bars they seem to be all around
Never an ending can be found
Heavy metal or in my head
Can not get in or out this I am fed

Get me out don’t keep me in
All the while I have been
So, keep your bars away from me
Forever at peace my soul will be
