My daughter Penelope took this image of me when she was only three-years-old.

I’m 39 40 years old, a father of three, and a human being who happens to find happiness through the viewfinder of any camera in my possession. I live in Colorado, and I’m currently pursuing a degree in Journalism. I was born cross-eyed and I’ve always seen the world in double vision. I’m not sure if that affects my photography or not, but it has definitely affected my perception of the world around me, as well as the people in it. I traveled the world with the Marine Corps in my early twenties, and was too busy working or getting drunk in my free time to bother taking any photographs. This fact has given me the urge to capture everything I see with my cameras. I don’t ever want to miss an opportunity to record what I see in the world ever again. I’ve spent the last threeย four years immersing myself in the world of photography. I never leave home without a camera or two. I’m not sure if I am capturing anything relevant or if I’ll someday be recognized as a photographer of note, but I am enjoying life behind the lens.

    Just clicked on your blog fella – you have an excellent eye ( no pun intended) for catching the moment. I really like the walk by door shots, i seem to to do it alot myself and have to catch up with the missus – whose miles up the road.

  2. Hey, fellow Coloradoan and photographer. Thanks for following my blog, otherwise, I might not have found you here in cyberspace! As far as I can tell, your early eye challenges haven’t affected your photography in a negative way at all. I like your photos and will be visiting your blog again.

  15. Today I started reading your blog from the very beginning out of curiosity. Now, I just finished page 50 of seventyandquitesome and I already came to the conclusion that delivering valuable critique to your photographs is a really hard task. Technical aspects do not apply to you, simply as you obviously do not strive for technically perfect photos and in terms of composition and “story” (statement, conclusion, whatever) … there is hardly anything I can spot that could improve the phototgraph. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Keep on creating and posting such amazing photographs and lyrics!
    Back to reading now. Hope you won’t mind me busting your stats page.

    • Thanks so much for your kind words! I am imperfect to a fault. I think being cross-eyed almost makes me strive to put little imperfections into everything I do. Photography and otherwise. I like things in my life to be slightly askew. ๐Ÿ™‚ THANK YOU for reading my blog, I’m happy you are enjoying it.

  16. For the life of me I can’t find where to subscribe by e-mail. I know I can hit “Follow”, but that just adds the site to my reader . . . I never look at my reader.

    Also, I could only find this page by clicking on the notice I get on my e-mail . . . I can usually navigate WordPress themes, but I don’t see a menu anywhere. There is an icon on the right sidebar, but clicking it does not bring up anything.

    Do you even have an option for e-mail subscription?

    • I do, but it isn’t accessible on this theme which I am using until I buy some more storage space on this blog. I have to link my images through flickr for now. I actually added a follow by email widget on the top. I’d love for you to follow by email. Sorry about the poorly managed theme.

    • Thank you, much appreciated. Subscribed.

      I wonder . . . this is not a “Name.wordpress.com” blog. It looks to be your own blog, under your own domain name. I pay WordPress.com for more storage on my blog just for the number and sizes of photos I post (the technical term is ‘a crapload’), but you don’t seem to have a great excess of photos.

      WordPress (the self installed/hosted version) does NOT know about any limits your host might impose, and most hosting sites offer huge amounts of storage.

      So I wonder if this storage issue is a glitch, and if not, why is there a limit on your own domain name?

      I ask because although I’m not familiar how that works, I thought you could have it hosted almost anywhere, and these days storage is very cheap. Also because that is something I was considering.

      Perhaps Google’s blogs might be an alternative. As far as I know, you get something like 7GB or more, and an additional 20GB for just $5 a year.
