From time to time, ok well almost everyday, I check my website and Blog statistics to see where the love is coming from across this Big Blue Ball we call planet earth.  Provided I have taken my own visits out of the equation, yes I do like to look at my sites sometimes; I am blessed to report that in 2008 you have visited my website and blogs 5,000 times across 100 countries. 

Now when I started my presence on the web, I never knew that it would grow to the level it has and that other photographer and Bloggers like Ross Oscar Knight would mention my blog on their blogs.  This has definitely helped with the stats and the love.  I also didn’t know that other Bloggers like Lisa Brady, Angel Sallade, and Doug Rutter to name a few would put links to my blog on their Blogs.  AND to have such world renowned destination photographers like Ross Oscar Knight and Scarlett Lillian comment on my work has been an awesome compliment to my work.  When I look at where I started the year and where I am ending it, I have definitely developed as a photographer and a student of the world.   There is still much to learn and I have to send a “shout-out” to Ross for helping me figure out how to use my flash and the constant encouragement.  Thanks to Scarlett for giving me many ideas on how to market the business and add “punch” to the photo’s.  It’s been a amazing ride and it’s just the beginning of something wonderful.  Thanks to everyone who’s supported me and sent some love my way; God knows I need it at times.

Stay Blessed!

My Book

I know it's been a while since I've posted to this Blog but I have been working on a book of my best photo's from my trip to India earlier in the year. Not sure when I will have it completed but here are a few of the shots that will be included. Please stay tuned and thanks for being patient with me.

National Harbor

Several months ago, I had the opportunity to go to D.C. for a conference. I previously blogged about the wonderful resort the conference was located on and now wanted to display it in a different slideshow format for everyone. I hope you like this format as I plan on using this venue again for my photography from and about India. I got some Indian music from a friend and plan on completing this project in the coming week.

Agra Fort

It's been a while since I posted additional shots from my trip to India. How fitting to make an update to the Blog India series with what I consider to be one of the best kept secrets in India - Agra Fort.

The ride to the Fort was very interesting, hot, windy and filled with unexpected obstacles but our guide made sure we got there safely and with enough time to explore. Agra Fort is less than 2 kilometers from the Taj Mahal and the history dates back over 2500 years ago. The fort
is built alongside the Yamuna river and stretches almost 2.5 km. It consists of a wall built in red sandstone and several buildings inside. The wall has 2 gates, the Delhi Gate and the Amar Singh Gate.

After going through the gate you walk up this ramp and it's better to be on the side of attacking down the ramp versus someone who was trying to wage the battle uphill. The Fort was built by Shah Janan in 1628. Further you find the Royal Pavilions. It contains beautiful mosques, palaces and the Zenana Mina Bazaar. Several of the buildings are made of pure marble with beautiful carvings.

As you can tell from many of the inside shots, the Fort has seen better days but not bad for being over 2500 years old and of course it is a Fort. Taking nothing away from the Taj Mahal but Agra Fort in my opinion is every bit impressive. I hope everyone enjoys these shots and I apologize for my delay in getting these posted.


Yes that is a Swastika below and here's some information on its' context in Indian culture.
