Steelers 18 Bengals 16, “It’s now or never” – Ben Roethlisberger said to Coach Tomlin, January 9, 2016, putting himself back in the game after a shoulder injury took him out only a quarter earlier. They had it won but, after Ben left, they let it get away from them – until he came back for the final assault – raising morale in his teammates and bringing tears to the eyes of fans. It is clear who the leader of this team is – he fights to the end and having preached this sermon to a teammate earlier in the week he walked the talk big time. The Bengals were so disturbed by the “Force” they had to use more dirty hits to try and overcome it. But good triumphed over evil – it might still be our last win of the season but nobody is going to say this team didn’t overcome the odds – numerous injuries including Ben’s ankle earlier in the season and four new kickers in one season. They keep on getting up and taking it again and again. GO STEELERS!
Shot on February 16, 2015 – middle of winter but 65 degrees and sunny! Hundreds of people were on the beach because it was a holiday, but they thought the show was over once the sun dipped below the horizon. They didn’t know the show had only just begun!
River City Brass Band performance at Pittsburgh’s First Night celebration, New Year’s Eve 2014, Benedum Center. Conductor James Gourley is a very colorful and energetic performer in his own right! Percussionists were wonderful to watch as well! Their rendition of MacArthur Park was great sans voice of Richard Harris its so much easier to enjoy the instruments! (Original Dumbledor and King Arthur – we miss you!)
Creating marketing pieces for The Empress Estate in Woodland, Washington is great fun! What an amazing venue – it sells itself in the photographs from the preferred photographers on its website. A selection of my work for social media and e-newsletter promotions is included in the Graphic Design gallery.
Steelers, Pirates, and Penguins oh my! We’re working on 3 championships in the same year, but one of these things is not like the other… Three Rivers Regatta is held during Independence Day festivities and culminates in spectacular fireworks at The Pointe by the local Zambelli Fireworks family.

Testing the new Sony Cyber-shot DSC HX200V for its 30X optical zoom and 18.2 mp capabilities. The anti-shake is so great! This is without a tripod.
The image isn’t striking for its clarity, but this isn’t a telescope view – and you can still see the craters very well!
