2010 Dance Showcase

I finally have some to blog about that's not connect photography. So here you go... Anna and I recently performed for the 2010 Dance Showcase at Body Fitness. We performed a swing routine to Harry Connick Junior's Do-Re-Mi. Hope you enjoy the movie!

Peoria Tea Party [Tax Day]

As happened across the nation, Tax day was "celebrated" by Tea Parties protesting the federal government's reckless spending. I participated, along with some friends and captured some of the faces of the day. I've included some of the more interesting shots. All images are copyrighted and are not to be used without written permission.

Liberty Day

This could be considered a "Photographic Perspective" topic, but I just posted a new post recently and thought this blog could use some attention.

Let me know what you think!

New Godawa Documentary!

This was an email I got from Brian Godawa concerning his new Documentary. Thought you guys might be interested. I know I'll probably get a copy of my own. If you're not familiar Brian Godawa wrote the screenplay for "To End All Wars".

I wanted to let you know that my documentary on the separation of church and state is finally available for purchase. It would make a great educational tool for homeschooling or for those who just love to watch educational documentaries. It played on PBS as "Wall of Separation," but it has been renamed "Faith of Our Fathers" which I think is dumb, but I'm not the distributor, so... alas. I did it in a Ken Burns style of historical investigation, and I'm proud of it. Definitely not the usual socialist interpretation you would get on PBS.

Anyway, here is the logline for the video:
This historical documentary takes a look at what the Founding Fathers intended when they framed the Constitution and wrote the First Amendment religion clauses. Were they trying to create a Christian nation, a secular paradise, or something in between? The documentary looks at how our understanding of church and state relations has changed through history by means of Supreme Court decisions and cultural pressures. From Everson vs. Board of Education to the most recent decisions over Ten Commandments displays, such interpretations are explored in comparison with the Founder's original intent. Approx. 60 minutes.

You can buy "Faith of Our Fathers" for ONLY $11.99 at here:

Wow... I can't believe I'm doing this!

So I originally posted this on the wrong blog. I guess that's what I get for having too many blogs.

... Don't expect this to be a regular thing. Consider yourself lucky Sierra,

Anyway I got tagged by the above individual.

What are the 15 things I'm not ashamed to admit.

1: I'm a Nikon guy.

2: In contrast to Sierra I actually enjoy a wide variety of chick flicks.

3: I enjoy dancing, but there are qualifications

4: I require a lot of sleep. optimally I would go to bed at 10 and wake at 7 :)

5: Some people just annoy me. End of story.

6: I think a lot of people have misconceptions about the way things should be.

7: I have over 100,000 photos on my computer. (actually they have their own luxurious storage space.

8: *I have a beautiful guitar and I play it really well

9: I am fairly certain that I fall into a "leader" personality type somehow.

10: I am open to trying new experiences as long as it doesn't involved "new" food.

11: If I can limit my "B" grades to only one this semester I will Graduate Magna Cum Laude at Illinois State University!

12: I love taking pictures of people, but there are naturals out there who just know how to pose. I love those people (in a non-creepy sort of way)

13: When I was younger I used to carve toy weapons out of wood. I've made a Thompson Sub-Machine Gun, An Uzi (which I gave as a gift), a Flintlock pistol, and my own copy of "sting" from LOTR.

14: When I was younger I was into Guns, Knives, and Self Defense. You might not know it to look at me now, but I can still kick your butt! :)

15: I have a fairly amazing sense of balance and can hold my own at the Limbo! Dare to challenge me?

I'm not going to tag anybody. Cause I am conceited and want this to die with me!

In Christ,

Reformation Day last!

It's taken me a while to get these ready for viewing by the world. But I have at last completed the collection. This, of course, means I'll be mailing out the CDs to everybody who ordered very shortly (waiting on a couple of prints). If you're interested in purchasing a Photo CD please send me an email via the contact page on my site. The CD's are $10 That would be the most convenient.

In Christ,
