Shot with Fuji point-and-shoot camera by the subject, Marlene.

Every inch of sky's got a star
Every inch of skin's got a scar
I guess you've got everything now

We went on a trip to Chiang Mai with our hosts while vacationing in Thailand. This wonderful gentleman was in a small shop next the market where our host's cousin had a stall. He has an apparent joy of life which seemed to cheer everyone around him. He refurbishes and repairs furniture.

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that's so cold
Maybe I'm just too demanding
Maybe I'm just like my father, too bold
Maybe you're just like my mother
She's never satisfied (she's never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other?
This is what it sounds like when the doves cry

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again

My heart
I was used to it
With loneliness
Who would have thought that by my side
Would you stay
You came to stay.
You make me happy
You make me sing

This sugarcane, this lemonade
This hurricane, I'm not afraid
Come on, come on
No one can see me cry

I was never faithful
And I was never one to trust
Bordeline bipolar
Forever biting on your nuts

Don't you know no one alive can always be an angel?
When everything goes wrong you see some bad
But I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh, Lord, please, don't let me be misunderstood

She's the face on the radio
She's the body on the morning show
She's there shaking it out on the scene
She's the colour of a magazine
And she's in fashion
She's in fashion

If I was the wife of an acrobat would I look like the living dead boy?
You're on the wire and can't get back, let's talk about the living dead
Could have had a car, could have had it all,
Could have walked in the sky but we stare at the wall

You bury your treasure where it can't be found
But your love is like a secret that's been passed around

I'm not the only one
Staring at the sun
Afraid of what you'd find
If you take a look inside.
Not just deaf and dumb
I'm staring at the sun
Not the only one
Who's happy to go blind.

My niece Michelle. Just did her Sr Portraits. I feel old! Seems like yesterday she was crawling around on the ground. Oh where does the time go? :-)

They say it fades if you let it,
love was made to forget it.
I carved your name across my eyelids,
you pray for rain I pray for blindness

I've seen this done a few times and finally had a chance to try it out. Levitation is kinda fun...It will take some practice though.

I had a great time photographing Brooke...she is a body builder and doing very well. It was starting to get dark so these were taken in a hurry. She did great. Taken up on the Haulapai Mts. near Kingman Arizona

I took a long trip in Southern Utah to photograph Coral Pink Sand dunes. When I got there every bit of the dunes were covered in atv tracks. Not a good shot in site so I started back to my car very disappointed about driving a 100 or so miles. Right at the edge of the dunes was this tiny area about a foot square...this is the only shot I got.

A friend up in Vegas has been having issues with her son. He won't let her see her grand daughters any more. Just a big mess. This is the only picture she has of them. She asked if I could do some magic. The original was taken in her kitchen.. This is what I came up with..

Wear your eyes as dark as night
Paint your face with what you like
Wear your love like it is made of hate
Born to destroy: born to create
