We are so blessed to have a tremendous amount of wildlife in the Spacecoast. One of these feathered friends is The Great Blue Heron. This is the largest and most widespread heron in North America. It is a large bird, with a slate-gray body, chestnut and black accents, and very long legs and neck. Great Blue Heronsare very tall and stand 3 to 4.5 feet high. If you are ever in the Merritt Island area or surroundings. Be sure to keep your eyes open, you might just catch a glimpse of one of these beautiful birds.

Slangkop Point Lighthouse

On my last travel to the beautiful country of South Africa, I managed to take this shot of a historic site, the Slangkop Point lighthouse in *Kommetjie. Having quite a history dating back over a century ago. The Slangkop Point lighthouse became fully automated in 1979, but is still one of the few lighthouses in the world to be manned by a light-keeper known these days as a 'lighthouse officer'.

*Kommetjie is also a premier site for observing seabirds. It forms part of the fynbos biome, and possesses some rare and highly sought-after plants that are threatened by alien species, especially those of Australian origin. Nearby Noordhoek Valley and the wetland opposite offer varied habitat to more than 150 different bird species.
Under the welcome shade of ancient oaks you’ll find the Noordhoek Farm Village, where eclectic shopping opportunities mix with art, wine, fine dining and overnight accommodation. However, for the more adventurous, a number of hiking trails – from one to four hours’ duration – wind through the mountains surrounding the Noordhoek Valley.
This rural and well-preserved area near Cape Town always has a peaceful atmosphere, even in peak holiday season.
Kommetjie is also world-famous for surfing events, cray fishing, and long summer nights.

Architectural Designs

One of the most impressive pieces of architecture I believe, are giant columns. These are are about 60' tall and 10' round. I photographed these because the building was just a colossal piece of art, that really got my attention to all the details. The Parthenon in Nashville, TN is a full scale replica of the original in Athens. It was built in 1897, as part of the Tennessee Centennial Exposition. If you are ever in the area, be sure to visit the Parthenon museum.

A legendary shoot in Miami.

Recently, I had the privilege in assisting a good friend, and one of the greatest photographers that I know Mr. Dean Dixon. When you get a chance, visit his site to see some really outstanding photography work.

His task was to capture a blues music legend "Matt 'Guitar' Murphy", in Miami,FL. Dean managed to get some exceptional shots, that will be featured at the Blue-Grass Hall of Fame Museum in Memphis,TN next year. Besides the great photography, searching for the location, etc. It was a treat meeting Mr. Murphy. Incredible, that at 85, the man still plays and sounds really good!

Thanks to Dean, for allowing me to hangout all day and learn so much, about one of my passions in life. Photography.

Visit to Port Canaveral

Approx. 80% of the world's population lives near the water. In this case, I am glad to be in the majority of the group. There is nothing like going outside to a warm sunny day, especially if you have experienced a bitter cold day in times past.

Today, I got to visit and meet some of the folks that manage the Port Authority. It's always great to meet new faces, and you appreciate their work and efforts which help the community. On the way out, I drove by the new construction site of the future PORT CANAVERAL Amphitheater. This building will be an incredible draw to the area, in addition to providing top class entertainment.

I hope next time you are in the Central Florida region, you will stop by and see the exciting things that are being developed in the area.

You just never know, what you might find on your visit here. Be sure to check blast-off dates, for even a possible experience, that will shake the ground where you stand.

"La Oracion"

Walking one afternoon in Mexico City, this abandoned hotel got my attention as I saw this massive painting of a mother praying "La Oracion" "The Prayer". For who or what was she asking her God for is a question, we will never know. Was the person behind bars, or might she be asking to get out and experience freedom.

But irregardless, it is a good reminder of the power of a prayer from a mother for a son or daughter on the wrong path of life.
