This past Friday I had the great pleasure of shooting my first session for the Arizona Greyhound Rescue. While the rescue mainly works to place retired racers into loving homes, they occasionally will work with shelters and other rescue organizations to help greyhound mixes find loving homes. It was in this way that Hailey came to AGR last October and was made an honorary greyhound.
Hailey is probably best described as a lab/greyhound mix and is thought to be eight years old. She has gone through basic obedience and she knows all of the basics. Hailey has been living with AGR volunteer coordinator Sarah since she came to the rescue severely underweight. Sarah has helped her reach a healthy weight and now she has lots of love and energy to share. Hailey is great with people but not so much with cats and other dogs so it is probably best for her to go to a family with no other pets.
In my short time with her, it was clear to me that she is a very sweet girl and will make the right family very happy. For more information, please visit her adoption page on the AGR or Petfinder websites. Love her but can’t take her home? Then please consider sponsoring her.
This past weekend I had the great pleasure of visiting the Thunder and Lightning air show at the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. I only live a couple miles away (as the jet flies) from the base and my house is pretty directly in their landing approach so I get my own personal air show on a regular basis. Even more so in the days leading up to Thunder and Lightning but it was a real treat to see some of these aircraft up close.
Also while I’m on the subject, I’d like to extend my deepest gratitude to the men and women serving in the United States military. Thank you for all that you do in the service of our country.
I took a break from my still life work yesterday to enjoy the early wildflower season in the Saguaro National Park. It was a beautiful morning for a hike and it was a perfect day for photographing some of the spring show. I hope you enjoy this gallery of my favorite photos from my hike.
Moving to a new city is always an adventure. One of the great things about moving is the opportunity to explore new geography and to explore new cultures and traditions. This week is Rodeo Week it seems that Rodeo Week is a big deal here in Tucson – even the schools close for the week’s festivities. Yesterday morning was beautiful so I grabbed my camera bag and went to check out the 87th annual La Fiesta de los Vaqueros Rodeo Parade. It was a very pleasant way to spend the morning and I hope you enjoy these views of the parade.
I’ve been considering the best way to sell prints of some of my fine art work for some time now. At the suggestion of a friend, I’ve decided to sell prints through Fine Art America. Below is a gallery of the images that are currently available and I plan to update the gallery with new work on a regular basis. I hope you enjoy!
