We took the kids to the PHX Zoo for ZooLights. Heather took them on the carousel...I took pictures.

This is Product Development's Christmas gift to the custodian here at work. We're giving him the WALL-E DVD with this cover and we also printed a 12x18 movie poster for him. I had a lot of fun putting this one together and I think he'll really get a kick out of it! Merry Christmas Paul!


San Francisco

Golden Gate Bridge

We spent the Thanksgiving weekend in the bay area and went into the city on Friday. A few words come to mind...congested, busy, dirty, diverse, and completely fascinating. There's a creative energy in this city that's unexplainable. I didn't think I'd like San Francisco very much as I can't stand big crowds, congested traffic, narrow and winding roads, people looking for handouts, etc...but, this city has so much history and character, I couldn't help but be intrigued. Needless to say, I shot a few pictures...not as many as I would have liked, but I got a few. They can be found by clicking on the Flickr badge to the right.


Superstition Sunrise

This morning's sunrise was absolutely beautiful. The color in the sky was much more vibrant just a few minutes before I took this picture, but I wanted to capture what was left anyway. As I watched the sunrise, I couldn't help but praise God and thank Him for His goodness, grace, and mercy.

"My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up." Psalm 5:3



Wonder 3

Saturday night, we went to Organ Stop Pizza for a couple of July birthdays. As the walls shook with the sounds of Phantom of the Opera, Chattanooga Choo-Choo, and many other selections, Gavin took it all in with the most sincere expression of wonder and amazement on his face. I had to capture it.


July 4th Weekend

We spent the 4th of July in Show Low this year...it was beautiful! I took several pictures including the drive and the fireworks display. You can view them by clicking on the picture or by using the Flickr badge I added to the sidebar. This will automatically update when I upload new photos. Enjoy!


Memory Lane (a.k.a. Pecos Road)

This photo was taken shortly after our engagement in 2000.

Back then, Pecos Road was just a quiet country road, on which you might see an occasional car drive by. This is also the road in front of my childhood home, so I have great memories of driving my ’55 Chevy back and forth on this very stretch…

Anyway, we thought it might be fun to document the changes that have taken place, both to this patch of ground and to our family, by taking a series of pictures in exactly the same spot. The pavement we were walking on has been torn up and the road rerouted. Instead of alfalfa fields in the background, there are now power poles, street lights, and a freeway. Heather and I have been married for nearly 8 years and we’ve added a couple of little people to the picture, too!

It's amazing how quickly time flies and things change. For me, this is just a little piece of nostalgia.
