I am joining up today with the BIG YELLOW TAXI EDITION OF SONG OGRAPHYWhen I saw the song for this week, it reminded me of an event in my own life. Way back in 1968, when I was a very young nursing student and living in Chicago. I used to often go and surprise my dad in the evening at the Chicago train station, UNION STATION, in the early evening before my dad went home to the suburb after a day at work. So one day, I decided to stop by there and say hello to him and have a carmel milkshake which was my favorite treat. When I arrived, surprisingly, my half sister was there visiting with him. She and I were not close, but she had a small baby boy with her, her new son, and she was there visiting, unexpectedly, with our father. So I briefly met this tiny little guy, and then, off they went in A BIG YELLOW TAXI! I had no idea at the time that it would be 41 YEARS before I would see this young man again. It is a long story, not for here, but we connected after a series of event, after all of this time. His mom had died many years before, and I had never had the privelege of seeing him. So in 2009, we had the chance to establish a friendship and family relationship which has been so important to me, and has been such a fun relationship.He is also a photographer, and we have been able to connect many places to enjoy this mutual hobby.SOOOOO, I Had to stop by and introduce you to a this photographer who I think is very special. This is my nephew, and has been a very important photography mentor in my life for the past few years, and I think his work is really special. No matter where he is, he has his camera gear with him, and he is never looking for the usual shot, but is always looking for that SPECIAL, ONE OF A KIND PHOTO. He specializes in NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY and is willing to do what ever it takes to get something really unique. This may mean spending the night out in the desert in the winter to photograph the stars in a ghost town, or it may mean hiking down in to the grand canyon to photograph areas that most of us will never see in our lifetime, or it may mean getting up at dawn to photograph the grand canyon at sunrise. His photography is really stellar! One of those people that I know I am going to be saying "I knew you when".
He has a great website with alot of his best photography in it, and right now has a special sale on photos.
If you are like me, you may still be doing some Christmas shopping, and if you are, and you really want a first class, original nature shot, you should check out his website. There are many options for ordering, and the pricing is right.
I have had the privelege of sharing a couple of his adventures with him and always have such a great time. Hoping for more of these, and always learn so much when I go with him..
