Yes. I'm alive! Work has been rather hectic lately and the warming weather has put much of my attention on preparing the MINI for the warm weather. The wallet is not happy about that! I look forward to seeing many of you at Vivio’s March 12th!

 

I was inspired to name this photo "God Doesn't Pay the Bills" after hearing a rant from my future father-in-law Richard Steinert. He was getting a lot of flack from some local church leaders about his personal life and he really didn't appreciate the lack of respect from these people. He finally got fed up with them and said, "Well God doesn't pay the bills last time I checked!!! So now I'm leaving and you won't get a dime outta me!!!" And the rest is history ha ha ha!

 

This photo was taken so long ago and I’ve been in such a hurry during my mornings that I never got to posting it until now. The funny thing about this is that when I came to the top of the steps here something was definitely missing from the shot - a chair. I left my tripod upstairs with my friend, and ran all the way down to the basement with my flashlight looking for the perfect candidate. After finding a wooden chair, I put it where you see it along with sprinkling a little debris all over the floor. I chose to process this shot to showcase the light. I'm sure there will be an HDR version coming up in the Flickr horizon that has no regard for the way the light plays in this scene. So I say to you now… respect the light!
