For all those we lost on September 11th, 2001. And for all those who became heroes that day giving selflessly of themselves for the greater good. You are not and never will be forgotten!
Check out my newest sticker. I’ve been meaning to create something like this for several years now. For one reason or other, I was never able to get around to it in time. But this year …. we’ll …. I did it. The stickers are available in two different sizes. Check out the ‘Stickers’ page herein this website to purchase (free shipping). Hope ya’ like ‘em!
I hadn’t been to my ‘home away from home’ here in Central Florida since before the pandemic. Today, I was out picking up dinner for later and since I had a camera with me anyway, I shot up the road about 9 miles to Lake Louisa State Park. This place has always been my favorite escape since I’ve lived here in Florida. Very tranquil. Very peaceful. Today, however, I was hoping to catch some stormy skies and lightning as it was raining really heavy as I was driving to the park. But alas, as I was pulling into the place, the rain let up and the lightning and thunder crashes all dissipated. Regardless, I drove in and captured a bunch of pictures. Here are just two of the better ones that show off the lush green vegetation and the storm clouds giving way to some blue skies.
Enjoy. Peace ✌️. be good to each other – Mike T 😎.
I know it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted. Between this Covid-19 craziness and some other stuff, I’ve just been preoccupied. But one of the things I’ve recently done to combat the lockdown, boredom etc… was to open a new “Red Bubble” online shop. If you don’t know what Red Bubble is, click HERE to check it out. But in brief, Red Bubble is a place where you can go to purchase my original photos and artwork. But not just as a print. Red Bubble lets you order all kinds of Merch items (like sweatshirts, T-shirts, smart phone cases, stickers and more) with my photos / artwork on it. Pretty nifty in my humble opinion. I’ve been considering this for a long time now and finally got my lazy bones charged enough to create this store. So yah, check it out when you have a second. Please and thanks 👍
Greetings Y’all 😎. The good side of staying home and not working right now is that I get to really chill and do some creativity. Since I was playing and practicing with some new software (app on iPad Pro actually), I figured I’d put together a slideshow video of some of my black & white photos I’ve created the last several years.
It’d been too long since I dabbled in any way with video production. So I thought I’d put together a short video Of some of my wildlife photographs to help hone my skill sets 😎. Enjoy. Peace, Y’all ✌️- Mike T.
Quite bluntly, I was playing with a program / app on my iPad Pro just trying to be somewhat creative. I ended up with this. I captured this while hiking one of the many nature trails within the Florida State Parks. Darned if I can remember which park. But I guess it doesn’t really matter as I was simply photographing interesting or attractive stuff. Picture yourself out walking one of these trails with the birds chirping, a little breeze blowing in your face, little wildlife creatures scurrying nearby and a 12 foot wild alligator about to attack. WAIT – scratch that last one 😂😂😂.
By request and suggestion, I’ve added another offering for the poppy stickers I have available. These poppies are dye cut (individual stickers versus a collection of stickers on sheets). To refresh, the poppy is symbolic and displayed on Memorial Day as well as Poppy Friday (the Friday immediately preceding Memorial Day) to honor those who’ve given their supreme sacrifice while serving in the U.S. Military. FYI – the poppy has also come to be displayed on Veterans Day as well but has the history and heritage more so connected to Memorial Day. Please click HEREto navigate to my stickers page. More details Once you get there …
I managed to capture this shot (on purpose btw 😜) on a day I travelled to southern Florida to Sanibel Island Lighthouse. This fella was dive bombing all afternoon for food just beneath the ocean waters. This shot also outdid any of the shots I grabbed of the lighthouse that day 😂.
Today’s ‘Pic Of Peace’ is from my online galleries – specifically, from one of my “Florida Backroads” galleries. I was testing out a new lens on this day a few years back. I saw this lone pine cone with what would become a nice blurred background. I shot this at Lake Louisa State Park in Central Florida. Enjoy and relax
So you may have noticed me using this American flag logo recently. Let me explain where it emanates from – I’ll jump right in. I started a new web site at the end of 2019. I was in the midst of putting everything together (and there is/was a LOT to put into this new site) when the Pandemic hit us. So everything went on hold but for a different reason than you probably think. The name of the new web site is and always has been since preconception, “A Walk Among Heroes.”
This whole concept had nothing to do with the present or newly recognized ‘heroes’ of the pandemic. Now that’s not a politically negative thing nor is there any disrespect to the heroes regarding the pandemic. The site was originally conceived to honor, recognize and appreciate the people of everyday life who did wonderful things for their fellow human beings.
Now that there are more than just a few signs of moving forward and of life getting back to normal per se’, I’ve decided it’s time to continue with the launch of the new site. So when you have a minute, please check it all out by clicking here >: www.AWalkAmongHeroes.com. In particular, check out the “Mission & Purpose” option when you navigate there.
Hope y’all are doing OK through these crazy times. I’m happy to announce that in response to requests, I’ve created an all encompassing new ‘hero’ sticker recognizing the main front line working heroes of this current Pandemic (Doctors, Nurses, First Responders, Police, Fire, Truckers, Grocery Store Personnel, Postal Workers), but also cites our U.S. Military as well. It’s a larger sticker for use as either a car window decal or a smaller bumper sticker. But truthfully, it can be used anywhere for any purpose. This sticker is offered with a white background and is made of weatherproof matte material. Archival inks are also weather protected. They measure approximately 7″ long X 3.25″ high. These stickers are sold individually. However, if you’re looking for larger quantities, please email me – email@example.com we can discuss your needs and pricing etc… Please click HERE to navigate to my stickers page.
I have yet another new sticker available in the “Stickers” section of the web site. This one is a poppy. In case you don’t know, the poppy is displayed as a symbol and recognition for those who served in the U.S. Military and gave the supreme sacrifice while serving. The full description, purpose and how or when to display is explained in that respective sticker offering (click HERE) to view and purchase.
