Meet Tracy



Tracy's in Crestline is a hot spot for a meat and three, not to mention a mighty delicious cheeseburger. I visit quite often, and Tracy's smiling face from the kitchen is always welcome.

I will be teaching my photography classes at Vestavia Hills United Methodist's Conservatory of the Arts again this fall. If you have working knowledge of your digital camera, join us for a fun way to learn to take better photographs of your friends, family as well as travel photos.

Up Close



For the past several months, I've been learning to use my macro phone lens. It's tricky business but a lot of fun.It's been interesting to see what looks good under a macro lens and what doesn't. Certainly this rose in full bloom gave me a lot of practice.

Lazy Summer Day



Shades Creek winds through the Jemison walking trail in Mountain Brook. A shady spot to stop on these hot days.

This weekend I join James' Weekend Reflections right here
