Planet X

I love to fly (besides the part about the other idiots on the plane).  I'm kind of a selfish partner to fly with though.  I always get the window seat. I press myself close and some days it looks like another world out there.  The window is mine.  Always.  Always.  Always.  End of story.

Just cause....

Whoring out the hubby.....go see him at


Just some added shots I took while at the college.  There were so many fun things to point the camera toward.  I'm sure they'll be more coming.

I'm clearing through files and downloading to my harddrive.  These are some of the photos from the the past 10 months we took.  Lauren had considered using these for her 'senior photo' but they didn't end up getting used or seen.  I'm posting them here cause I think it's a waste not to have had these seen.  I do think it's funny how she's changed over the year.

Do you cross the bridge...

or do you fade away??..Elton John.   I could have gone to the cliche 'Bridge over Troubled waters."

Crabby Patty

We popped through our hometown of Fredericksburg and weren't there but 24 hours.  In that time however, we did manage to get some yummy seafood.  We do miss that here in Dallas.  Did get a couple of shots in.

Something Old and Something New....

Pittsburgh does a wonderful job of mixing the architecture of 1800's with the contemporary buildings and features of today. Everywhere you look there is something special to see.

----A man's health can be judged by which he takes two at a time- pills or stairs.

----Some people are like Slinkies and not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.

Lauren's new bank in Pittsburgh.  It's the side of one of the buildings, about 6 stories.  They get extra points for being clever.  Apparently there are some environmental benefits to this plant wall, but honestly I don't care.  I just thought it was neato.

Really, it was just supposed to be Lauren and the Ketchup dino!

Swag Bag

My camera got to play at a star studded charity event.  Yummy food and drinks and of course the swag bags.  So this is how the other half lives??
