Shower Thoughts #76: It’s good to be a veteran


  1. Wow, a lot of people seem to understand that Veteren’s Day isn’t about car and furniture sales… about time.

For all those who have served, are serving, and will serve, thank you. I know you may not see it as a sacrifice because that’s just the way you are, but I just wanted to pass that along. Although I initially enlisted for certain reasons, I came to realize that it was an honor and privalige to serve.  I have been out of the service for 9 years now, but it feels like yesterday. I think about my time in the military everyday, and I’m thankful for the opportunities that I was given then and now because of my service.

The following pictures were taken by me this past April when we took a mini-vacation to Washington, D.C. for spring break.

I was asked by a friend to post some of my photography.  I am an armature at best, and probably just at novice on a good day.  The one thing about photography is that I’m always looking for something that will take my breath away, then I want to capture it so I can keep it forever.  I know very little about the technical aspects of photography, and the physics involved with composing a photograph.  Exposure, forget about it.  But when I find that one image out of hundreds that I’ve taken, I smile, and I’m happy. So here is a sample of the pictures that I love from over the years.

I have a butterfly bush outside my office window.

I like to play with angles. In this one I like that I can't tell if this is first thing in the morning or at dusk.

This is one of my all time favorites.  It was taken on our balcony while on vacation at the Animal Kingdom Lodge at Disney.
