So this isn't actually directly family related, but it was a lot of fun to make and I like it, so I thought I would share it here anyway...I made this after a skiing trip to Lake Louise with my buddy Eddy on Friday. Eddy's a great skier and we have a great time bombing all over the mountain together. It was an amazing day of blue skies, warm weather, and there was still some fresh powder to be found (if you know where to look)!This video honestly doesn't do a great job of … Continue Reading ››

We went for a really nice walk along the river and saw plenty of birds including ducks, geese, and a Hawk soaring high above.
As some of you may have already seen, I've created a Flickr site to share some of my personal favorite photos. I will continue to post all of my regular photojournalistic style photos of family events, trips, etc. here as I have always done, while my Flickr account will see only the best of those and also some more artistic (or photoshoppped) images that may not get posted here.There is a permanent link to a slideshow … Continue Reading ››
