Skyhouse Films returns to it's first love...

So it looks like we are back together - of course she cost me a hundred bucks to get her back, but I figured how many relationships like this are going to come along in a life time? Seems an email account that the domain was under died or was dropped by GoDaddy, so I was never contacted about accounts I had with them and sure enough Skyhouse Films was one of them. Kind of scary when you call tech support to figure out some issues and they say "somebody in Texas owns" (while you check in disbelieve and are amazed at the used cell phone add that comes up in place of your web page). Two panic filled days, but all is good now.

Won't let that happen again...

Skyhouse Films ran away with another lover...

Read it and weep - I know I am. Somehow, and we still have not come to a final conclusion from GoDaddy, I lost my domain. Skyhouse Films belongs to another. The other looks to be professional web grabber uppers. I sent them an email about what it will cost to get it back, we will see. I am not hopeful that anything good will happen. Looks like it is time to drum up another name, here are a few in the lead so far:

I am kinda leaning towards the last one.

John has birthday today :-0

I turned 42 today (lucky me) and went on a hike with my brother Tim. More news on an upcoming journey involving me and my bro. Stay tuned and enjoy the pics!

Photograph on National!

I recently submitted one of my favorite photos from the Navy mission trip. It made it as one of the twelve "Daily Dozen" shots for this week. Here is the link to the site here

I am in the running for having my shot selected to go in a future edition of National Geographic magazine (pretty cool), but I need your help. Each month the Daily Dozen picture gets voted on by viewers. Go to the web link and cast a vote/rating for my image (look under voting machine and you decide what to give it). Each month they pick one to three winners from the four Daily Dozen groups that month. Any would help would be great!

Cool beans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I made the local paper...

Not too hard when you contact them, but hey it's an interesting trip - I'm almost interesting (almost). FYI, working on adding photo's of my last three years of international work, also an overhaul of the blog and trying to find enough projects to keep the family fed. Had an interesting meeting about a project originating in Cuba. Will be entering some photos in contests this fall and looking forward to more photography opportunities.

Anyway, here is a link to the article online: here

More post coming about life and some future trips - one is going to be a lot of fun and you get to come along...

Hosting a family and friends screening...

I will be hosting a get together this evening at our home. Family and friends will come over to have some food and then view some pictures from the trip. I love stuff like this; just hanging out, eating some "grill food" and exploring the world through media.

Will update with some pictures this weekend!
