Subscription Changes

Due to a hack on this blog, I unfortunately have to remove all users & subscribers. Additionally, the former option of signing up for email notifications has been removed and is no longer an option. I believe this all to be temporary until the problem with the hacking has been resolved. Apologies for any inconvenience – especially to the subscribers who’ve followed my blog for a while now.

Here’s to happier, less criminal, non hacking times GRRRR!

`Twas The Night Before Christmas

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays y’all 🙂

Several years back, I recorded this classic and heartwarming, nostalgic tale for various purposes. I’ve posted it every year since on Christmas Eve. So go get the little ones (and kids of all ages) and listen to this as if you were listening to an old fashioned radio broadcast. You remember radios, don’t you? ;). Enjoy!

Peace & Good Will To All!

Lake Eola – Orlando, FL: “Stand With France”

Honoring France – Lake Eola Fountain – Orlando, FL

For those that don’t know what or where Lake Eola is, it’s this beautiful lake with a park that surrounds it all. My guess is it’s about a mile walk around the lake. Pretty good size. I’ve photographed at the lake quite a few times but it’s been at least 2-3 years since I’ve done any night photography there. Earlier today, one of the local news stations here in Orlando announced that Lake Eola officials would turn the colored lights in and around the giant fountain in the center of the lake red, white and blue as a tribute and honor to France after the horrible tragedies that occurred during their Bastille Day celebration before. So I ventured downtown Orlando about 9:00 PM Friday night (July 15th, 2016) to see what I could capture in pictures. Here is one of the shots I was able to create.
