Recent accomplishments

Ello, ello, ello. Well, New Year's Eve I was fortunate enough to be coming out of Los Alamos at just the right time. I hit the scenic overlook just before the Blue Moon crested the eastern horizon. got some killer pics of it. But later that night as I was going through Santa Fe, I stopped at the train station just to see what was up. I honestly didn't expect to see anything since it was a holiday, but to my surprise the Rail Runner and the Santa Fe Southern were both very active. I got a killer shot of the Santa Fe Southern, readying itself in the yard for an evening run. The picture I captured of the train also had the blue moon in the sky over it. It was terrific. Couple day later I showed the photo to the General Manager of the railroad and she LOVED it. She said she was going to "present" it to the Board of Directors. What becomes of it after that we will have to wait and see. But I was very proud of it.

Obviously, as most of you know, trains are one of my many photographic passions, so along with that I have been submitting several photos that have been accepted for display on the website, http://www.railpictures.net/. This is quite the accomplishment for me as their requirements and accpetance criteria are very stringent and for quite some time, was impossible for me to get anything submitted. I am up to 9 accepted submissions thus far and counting.

I also did a CD cover for a Christian Rock band a few months ago and it is finally being released this month, along with my credits listed inside for the photographic work.

That is what is going on in my world. Just thought I drop a line.

Hope all is going well for everyone and that your passion for life and the arts makes it into you pieces of work. good luck to all of you out there.
