Wheels on Academy: Cary Classic Car Show 2013

I really think that you can tell a lot about a community by the cars that they own... even if they aren't daily drivers. I'm from Connecticut where we get a lot of snow, but we also have some beautiful summers. So, you see a lot of people with front-wheel drive vehicles or four-wheel drive vehicles. I'm sure Audi and Subaru get a lot of play because they're sporty 4-wheel-drive vehicles. You see some mustangs and Camaros and BMW's, but not like in the south where you don't have to worry about having a second car to make it to work on those snowy days.
      In some communities you'll find more pick-up trucks... because that's what they use and that's what they need. But one thing I'm finding is that every community has some classic car collectors. While there is a push toward new electric cars and those that use less fossil fuel.. there's something in all of us that wants to preserve these classic cars. That's why we have so …

Re-Learning How to Play the Saxophone

It has been more than 7 years since I played my saxophone on a regular basis. Even then, I only played twice a week  for church services. Maybe you can call it the seven year itch, or maybe it's just the musician/artist within me looking for an outlet for the talent within me.... but I've decided to jump back on the  saxophone recently.

     My testimony is that God stirred up the little gift within me when my church needed it. My father was a great organist and musician. he understood the meaning behind the notes and how to make different sounds by just changing one note in a chord.

Response to Fro Know Photo Rapid Fire Critique

Ok, first let me say that I was completely surprised when I saw Jared Polin's recent Rapid Fire Critique. I had submitted the photos at least a month earlier.. so I had completely forgotten that I had submitted the ten photos. On top of that I had just wrapped up a busy day, .. my wife had just fallen asleep.. and EJ was long gone into dreamland. So, I was sitting on the couch watching some show on the history channel, A&E or Velocity when I happened to do a random check on my phone of the latest content on Youtube. Right at the top of the page I see my picture.. and I think WHAT???!?!?          Anyway, Jared Polin is one of many awesome photographers that I watch, keep up with, and try to get tips from on YouTube.  I also subscribe to Digital Photography School through E-mail.      I do all of this in hopes that I can improve my photography. But here’s the thing-- I’ve never taken a photography class. So, I’ve never had a professional look at my work and say.. “hey, you…
