My strat and I...

My greatest passion is music...

Information is not Knowledge
Knowledge is not Wisdom
Wisdom is not Beauty
Beauty is not Music
Music is best.

Gimme more of that sweet, sweet music! This is me and my Strat. She sings for me. I also sell, play and perform live with my own custom made didjerdoos. Yet another passion is the harmonica (mouth harp) which I have also performed live with.

USS Iowa BB-61   A refurbished and modernized WWII battleship

My next passion is the sea. More appropriately, "was" the sea. I served a total of eleven years in the US Navy and Navy Reserves. My ship (above), the USS IOWA BB-61, brings me great pride. I'm a battleship 58,000 tons of WWII armor and armament. 9 16" guns, 17" of turret armor. I sailed with her from! I traveled the world. The Carribean, the North Atlantic, the Red Sea, the Indian Ocean, and more. I visited Rome, London, Berlin (before the wall came down,) Istanbul, Oslo, and much more.

Charity in harmonic motion
I went to The Sherman Hotel, with my cousins, Brian & Renee', with the mindset of capturing the guitarists of Big Leg Emma. I did get a lot of nice shots of Jeff, Jake and Dan, but this shot of Charity defines the energy and motion of the evening. I meet a lot of people Saturday. Thanks Wendy, thanks John (BMM), thanks John(Sherman Hotel), thanks Brian & Renee', and    GOD BLESS  BIG LEG EMMA
