Dallas Morning

I just so happened to have my camera with me - and on (I know, big deal), when walking into work.  The weather was cold(ish).  It wasn't nearly as bad as my ex-Ohio counterparts, but you know, mid 40s.  Anyway, took this picture near my building.  The giant odd looking thing is this huge sculpture made out of iron and what not...

Been Too Long

And I apologize, life has been crazy - still hasn't calmed down, yet - but soon, hopefully.  Looking like maybe February, but I doubt it, haha.

Anyway - a lot has happened since, I guess May when I last posted, married, moved to a different state, got a new job, tax season is going to be interesting this year...

Ah well - some new things I've worked on - only sparingly, and not some of my best work, but I needed a new outlet and something new to update.  So here goes...


I bought my hard working, very deserving wife some red soled shoes, to those in the know, I know - to those who don't know, google - either way, she was stunned and could not believe it!


We also got her a DVF dress - thing looks downright amazing on her, and the colors/design is spot on!

And lastly for this post is from thanksgiving.  Top Chef contestant and wife to Mr.Army invited us down to their place and she made the turkey with the wife making the stuffing.  The picture does not do the food justice - it was superb!

Now this was a very interesting experiment that I tried. I left the shutter open for like 20 seconds or something to get the background lights exposed properly - then used my flash's pilot light (just a really intense quick burst flash) and bounced the light off the floor to very quickly super expose "R"...a few trial and errors but I figured it out...
