It will be almost a year since my brother committed suicide. I immediately turned to photography to help get me through this year. I started a series entitled Vets with Pets where I offer veterans a free portrait session and one free digital image per pet. It really took off. And it really truly helped me a lot mentally and emotionally too.
We finished off a wonderful walk around Oslo with a delicious 10 course meal at the michelin star restaurant, Kontrast. We started off with some celebratory bubbly… You can never go wrong with serving me a yummy egg followed by some soft cheese! Every meal was paired with tasty wine. Raw shrimp with flowering dill and Kohlrabi. […]
Rebecca and Eric took us ladies on a nice winter stroll through parts of Oslo yesterday! Of course I’m always a fan of any kind of architecture, especially if there’s art incorporated with it. We made our way to a tram station to get a little warm before we got to our next destination. Tram […]

My wonderful friend Manuela let me come to the school she teaches at in Constanța, Romania, where students are learning how to become seafarers for large waterborne vessels. Since coming back to Colorado, the Romanian Nautical College has moved to a bigger location in the port city – to a university that lent them two floors and […]
Our first full day of vacation was full of relaxation, a bit of much-needed exercise and a nice little walk around Ybor City. Ybor became official in the 1880s by cigar manufacturers and immigrants from Cuba, Spain, Italy and more than likely handfuls of other countries came to the area to roll millions of cigars […]
