• Sooo hot!

    Imagine you step outside and the blistering heat takes your breath away, seeps into your pores and feels like its sizzling your inner core.

  • Oh for pete’s sake just say yes already!

    I like to think that I’m a thotful guy. If you ask me a tough question, I’ll often come up with an interesting perspective (at least to me) or I’ll admit if I don’t know. My problem is that I often get stumped by easy questions. When people look at one of my photos and… Continue Reading

    “It is the nature of a man as he grows older to protest against change, particularly change for the better.” John Steinbeck, novelist. That quote always makes me chuckle. I could never understand the pure craziness of preferring a worse option rather than changing. Then I had a scary thot – it might be happening… Continue Reading
