I have a passion for photography, and the world around it. My enjoyment comes from being on assignment shooting sports, events, and concerts. When the lights go down and the show's about to start, my heart races with anticipation of my first shutter click- from there, it's a free-for-all and the adrenaline rush kicks in!

The Expendables open fire on weekend movie goers

The latest movie from the Rocky and Rambo star Sylvester Stallone hits big over the weekend taking in an estimated $35 million dollars beating its competitors  to a pulp. Critics pretty much panned the movie for its violence, lack of acting, and scripting.  But, the fans have the last word walking away satisfied with what…

America’s Got Talent – Youtube special was a hit!

I’m not much of an America’s Got Talent watcher, but I happen to turn on the tube and saw a 16 year-old piano player being featured so I figured why not wait and see this kid. I sat through some excruciating and bad youtube talent, before the piano player came on.  He played a piece…

Neil Young hasn’t changed and forever remains…

I arrived at my designated destination, the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, WA for a howling good time but that was soon changed. I saw the lot motley photographers including me of course and they all had big lenses rented from the local photo outlet- I began to worry. Oh, no!  I didn’t get the word…

The weather had been blistering hot for days before the show, but the temperature came down to a manageable 70 something degrees making it a comfortable evening for a show under the stars. With groups like…

Pandorum peaks half-way

When I first saw the preview to this movie, (awhile back) I was really excited to see this movie at the theater, and then it was gone.  I since bought the DVD about six or seven months ago and finally decided to watch it. I wasn’t really sure what to expect other than it being…

The Last Airbender needed a fifth element

I finally had the chance to catch The Last Airbender after waiting a long time to see it. From the opening scene of a brother and sister from one of the water tribes I knew  I was in trouble.  Not because of the acting, but for some reason the shot just seemed cheap.  And from…

Finale II The Mentalist vs. Red John

Last night was the second finale for The Mentalist, and it didn’t disappoint me in any way.  In fact, it rejuvenated my interest in Red John and the entire story behind he and Jane. Also returning was psychic Kristina Frye, who some feel could be RJ himself; well, that would make him a her if…

A nightmare gone bad

For those of us who remember having the pants scared right off of us with the original “A Nightmare On Elm Street ” from 26 years ago may be a little disappointed in the new remake of the old horror (now classic) movie. The characters were all familiar, and in some ways just like the…
