Capture the Moment! Photo Memories!


Celebrating Photography during the Month of March!

Visit the Photography Room at the Art Center for 2012 photo contests

Capturing a moment through the eye of the camera, does it not amaze you at what you see.  My feelings transmit such excitement.  Capturing moments with the camera lens opens up a world I might have otherwise missed.

You Are On Candid Camera

Never knew I would be so excited about having a friend named Nikon.  It feels so good.   Since I have gained such a friendship the world has opened up and expanded into areas I would never have traveled to.  Even though I know the world expands as we seek new paths along our life’s journey, it still amazes me on what I find.

Paradise Valley Friends and the Absaroka Mountains

Today, as I started researching for a Brook N’ Dell Project and the  Photography Room at the Art Center I found myself finding so many opportunities for photographers…Even novice amateur photographers like myself.   This research objective is to provide an on-going resource guide to  many monthly and yearly photography contests.

Knowing that there are so many resources out there in the world of photography we invite all to join us in this endeavor.  If you know of  contests please send a message by using the comment section below or  if you wish send a private message to

Books….Books ….Books! Here are some books I have on my list which have been tools for me in living with Resilience. Some of the books below have been written by two collegues of mine who I call good friends as well. Both Dr. Bill Crawford and Bill Ferguson have been in the business of making a difference in peoples lives. They are both in Houston however, do travel and present workshops and seminars as well as making keynote speeches. They are both fantastic! (Contact me if you would like more information about these special teachers and mentors)

The other books are some of my favorite resources that help me grow and realize what life is all about. I have opened the pages many times. God Calling even saved a friend’s life. The Artist’s Way Book and workbook is a tremendous tool to open up that creative genius inside of you. I will be offering a workshop utilizing all of these books. If you are planning to attend the workshops you are only a click away to utilize Amazon and order your books right here at the market place.
