Head West!

Saturday, March 13th, 2021

If you don’t already know, Margret and I have moved to Taos, New Mexico. We bought a house there in April, 2020 and start moving our cars and household contents soon after. I drove a 16′ truck on 2 different occasions. Each time the truck was loaded to the gills! The moving was complete sometime in May, 2020.

Hapeville Christmas Tree Lighting

Cooper on Santa Watch

A couple of weeks ago was the annual tree lighting in the park in Hapeville.  I thought Cooper might enjoy meeting some new people, so with camera and Cooper in tow, we walked to the park.  We no sooner entered the park when a bunch of kids flocked to see Cooper.  No surprise, right?  Throughout the night I continued to capture images.  After most of the crowd left was the best time to use my camera.  At one point I thought I could leave Cooper close to the tree, step back, and capture him and the tree.  As soon as I dropped his leash he started walking away.  I wound up having him sit, hold his leash, and capture him.  There are a few photos in the gallery.  You may view them here.

The foots rest!

A couple of weeks ago I attended my cousin’s daughters wedding in Massachusetts.  Saturday morning I flew into Providence, Rhode Island airport and was picked up by Tom.  We went to their house, which is where I stayed Saturday night.  After we got to the house, I walked around a bit and captured some photos.  Soon enough, some of Tom’s relatives started showing up.  Tom had planned an cookout for later in the evening.  Chris and the wedding party were still out getting their nails done for the wedding the next day.  It took them a while for all of them to have their nails done.  They showed up in time for the cookout, which was great.  It was fun meeting the relatives.

On Sunday I drove with Chris and Tom to the wedding.  The wedding and reception were held at the same place.  It was a nice day for an outdoor wedding.  The setting with the gazebo worked very well.  I photographed the wedding instead of being a  spectator.  You can see how I did by clicking here to view the photos.

It was a great & quick weekend. This is the first time I’ve been to visit them and hope it is not the last!

Daisy and Mocha


Of course I cannot go out to the backyard without some accompaniment.  As you can see, I even managed to get a pretty decent photo of the camera-shy Chloe!  It almost looks like she was posing for me!  Click on either photograph for the full size version.

We have a new addition to our pack: Mocha.  She is Mastiff and Australian Cattle dog.  When I saw her at the DDFL, I thought she may have had Pit Bull in her.  Our vet thought she has some Boxer in her.  She was born in mid-October at the Denver Dumb Friends League.  She came home with us on the 17th of December, weighing 13 pounds.  Daisy promptly established her alpha position with Mocha.  Chloe didn’t quite know what to make of her, but is slowly coming around and is starting to play with her.  Chloe’s version of playing is getting right in Mocha’s face and barking in her ear.  Sounds like fun, doesn’t it!  Let’s play!!

Phrosty Photographs

Recently we had a cold blast blow through. There must have been some humidity with that front as well since it left frost on just about everything. I managed to capture some photographs which you may view here.

Marie’s Crystal Delights

Marie's Crystal Delights


After Marie found my web site and emailed me, we started discussing web sites.  Turns out she had one but was looking for a better solution, so I created one for her.  She makes her own jewelry which she sell locally and through the web.  Courtney picked up one of Marie’s lanyard when we visited them in Virginia.  The site is just about done so have a look and let me know if you have any problems with it.  You can also let Marie know if you see anything you like!  Tell her Brian sent you.  😉  You will find her site here.

VDOT Closing Bridge in Prince William County

Norfolk Southerb Bridge on Aden Road

During our visit to Virginia, I was told about an old railroad bridge. We managed to get over there to capture some photographs before heading over for the crab feast. Jennifer sent me an article about the bridge being closed. Good thing we were able to get there before they closed it! Here are my photographs.
