I worked as a photojournalist for daily newspapers for several years.
These are photos of everday stuff... and an odd job here or there.

Well it’s that time of year again. We have a pretty good crop of ducklings, but the hawks are picking them off pretty quickly. The adults are pretty aggressive. The largest male took a couple of runs at my head while I was shooting these.

My buddy Sam wanted some pictures of his beard before he shaves it off. We did several looks and these are a few from one.

PRESIDIO LA BAHIA - GOLIAD, TEXAS

Presidio La Bahia, designated a National Historic Landmark, is considered the world’s finest example of a Spanish frontier fort. This is the most fought over fort in Texas history, having seen participation in six National Revolutions/Wars for independence. Spanish, Mexican and Texas soldiers all garrisoned its fortified walls. Here, at the Crossroads of Revolution, was felt almost every attempt to forcibly change the governmental order of Texas.

I was testing a new lens (Tokina 12-28mm f/4). I also pulled out the 50mm for a few. Lit with a Yongnuo 565, manual, full-power; trigger by an SB-700 on camera
