Welcome to my photoblog. I try to keep it updated daily with a new photo from either my personal or professional life. It is not intended to be taken as my professional portfolio (please visit the main website for that), but instead it is more of an informal and fun way for me to share some of my personality and creativity with you. Many of the photos on my blog are available for purchase as fine art prints, please visit the main website and/or contact me if you are interested. Enjoy!

  1. This looks like one of the birds that seem to have invaded SoCal in the last year or so. Especially the Sage Brush areas. Man can they get loud!

    1. Yup.. these birds do have quite a loud call! I can usualy hear them from so far away it's hard to hear any other birds nearby. They have always been very common up here in the summertime.
