Day 2 in Guatemala was another travel day as we drove from Santa Cruz to Frey Bartolomo De Las Casas, which was our home base for the next two weeks.
I am an Oklahoma-based editorial and commercial photographer and widely published writer, and a long-time IT networking professional. I like to tell stories about real people doing unusual things. I like working on complex networking projects. I like to exercise. A lot. You can read and view my stories about farmers, ranchers, electrical linemen, motorcycle riders, fishermen, hunters, IT professionals and technologies, and a multitude of others right here on my web site and in dozens of local, regional and national magazines.
I photographed an original 1930 Indian 4 motorcycle for my friend Gerald Tims. He found the bike parked in a shop in Oklahoma City. It had last been tagged in Oklahoma in 1948 and had been sitting ever since.
This morning I had the opportunity to ride a fat tire bicycle in Antarctica via FulGaz software. Holy cow, that was different. It seems Kate Leeming, an Australian adventure bicycle rider and tennis pro, rode and filmed part of her bicycle ride through Antarctica and posted a short stretch on FulGaz for others like me […]
In 2022 we stayed at Lake Murray in south central Oklahoma for a weekend motorcycle ride. As usual, I would get up each morning for a run and took my camera with me for some pictures. I wandered around the Lake Murray Lodge and got pictures of the docks and the floating rental cabins before […]
After being stuck indoors in cold weather, I decided on the first warm day to take a short trip to western Oklahoma to find Jesse Chisolm’s grave. I had been there a decade ago, but wanted to go back and see it again, and explore some of the trails and dirt roads in the area.
During the winter months, I am always looking for a place to walk, and the OKC Fairgrounds is often a great place during the cold months. There are often horse and livestock shows going on. In January 2023 I talked my wife Kay into joining me on one of these walks and of course, I […]

From my photo archives
I took these photos of my grandaughter Kaitlyn in my makeshift garage studio during the winter of 2022, when she was a junior in high school. I used my Nikon D800 camera and I believe my Nikon 85mm F1.4 lens – my favorite portrait lens.
I took this photo at the 2022 ML King Parade in downtown Oklahoma City. I thought this guy looked pretty cool. Wish I knew his name.
Early 2023 my teenage granddaughter Kaitlyn Reber came to my studio for a session. We shot hundreds of pictures over several hours using studio lights. She had several changes of clothes and used the pictures in her pageant contests. I am posting a few of my favorites.
