04/23/16: Had the pleasure of attending this Instameet with my oldest son, Ethan. Enjoyed getting the chance to observe his enthusiasm and what he chose as his subject matter.
03/23/16: Visited Kansas City for a work related conference. This particular evening started off rainy but finished with a bang right at dusk when the rains stopped and the skies began to clear.
03/20/16: Joined the Wheeling Shooters for another fun, albeit cold and rainy, day of shooting. We were on the north side of Wheeling. My cover picture of the Victorian home actually won first place during the event!
12/13/15: Feeling a bit of nostalgia as I was driving home Sunday morning. Had to pull over and capture the beauty of the vapor rising from the river.
09/27/15: Had a great time at my first #instameet with the Wheeling Shooters. I've not previously spent much time in East Wheeling but quickly found the charm. For those who are asking what an #instameet is, it's a photography scavenger hunt of sorts with categories of photos to obtain. You then post your photos to Instagram with the provided hashtags. The best thing about this type of meet is it attracts every level of photographer from the professional with all the high tech equipment to those with a budding interest photography to those using their cell phones to capture creative and interesting images. Getting to see all the different perspectives as they slowly filter onto Instagram has been enjoyable. I am already looking forward to the next one! Thank you Adrew Croft and Jason Foose for the invite!
09/20/15: Spent the day taking pictures in and around the Strip District in Pittsburgh. The 31st and the 16th Street Bridges are both unique and charming.
