Controversy at the Dinner Table

Every year at my wife's Christmas family gathering we try to bring something different to the dinner table. This year, while I was perusing my large collection of dessert cookbooks, I found a recipe that was titled something funny. So, my contribution to the family dinner was "Nuns Breasts"! A cream filled pastry no less.

A Triple F Weekend

Friends, Food, and Fast Cars. We spent a great Saturday evening over at Trudy and Bill's home for a Christmas party. Trudy always does up the Holidays right with a fabulously decorated home. The inside of the house looks like something you see in one of those HGTV specials. After an awesome dinner we all made our way to the garage to see the progress of Bill's new project; a Monza Spyder. Can't wait to see this beast on the road. I don't do many Holiday parties but this is one that I am thankful to be able to attend.

Honest, I'm not a Perv

Hopefully my neighbors are used to me running around with a camera and a tripod by now. Every now and then I get the urge to photograph the moon. It's harder than you think! Tonight was a full moon mixed with clouds so I had to trek out into the cold. I am starting to figure it out but I still haven't been able to get the shot I want. Practice makes perfect.

Indoors Where it is Warm

So after being away from shooting car shows for awhile I was finally able to sneak away and take some photos. I almost turned back home because the roads were covered with snow and it was really windy. But, this would probably be my last chance for the year to do what I love.

The East Coast Indoor Nationals are held every year at the Cow Palace in Timonium, MD. Since it is an indoor show you can escape any nasty weather that is outside. The biggest problem with the building is the lighting is awful! I really need to get a good flash and a helper when I do these indoor shoots. Many of the photos I took were just not up to my standards; only a few were even acceptable. I did take a couple hundred shots and my legs are suffering from all the deep knee bends! Anyways, you can see a few more shots over at I guess the only way you get better is to practice.

Just Say No...

One of the fun things I love to do to our cat, Furby, is give her catnip (or as I like to call it "cracknip") and then laugh hysterically as she rolls around and makes funny faces and sounds. I am easily amused. The first one is free kitty....
