Keep On Trucking

Posted on

Good things trucks deliver to America; it’s a crazy stat that everything you have at one time in the delivery chain was transported by a truck! It may enter the country by plane, boat, or train, but it still lands on a truck in the process, and even more crazy their are millions of drivers and they still need more, in fact there is more loads that drivers, that’s amazing to me. I took this picture because of the relationship between the two big rigs and how the tanker is carried through the mirror, which was a hard image to capture at 65mph going down the interstate. I admire people who can thrive in this type of work environment and still maintain a balanced home life even though they are on the road away from home for weeks at a time. If these big wheels quit rolling so does the US economy, they need each other. So, my trucker friends keep on trucking!

Be Strong, Be Confident, Be Successful

Newport Bridge Blog

Why are photographers so interested in images of bridges and or piers, I know I am guilty of this fascination. Maybe it’s the strength of the ocean or Mother Nature pounding against the structure, maybe it’s because no matter what life throws at the structure it doesn’t give an inch, maybe it’s a metaphor for life? Like in life your ability to weather any storm or situation truly depends on how deep your rooted like the base of the pier or bridge if your deeply connected in either your faith, beliefs, family, or what grounds you in life, gives you the foundation to ride out the storms and set backs of life and come out of them stronger than ever and ready with the new found confidence to handle the next storm in life. Be strong, be confident, be diligent, and be successful.

Crazy Texas Weather

Posted on

I love Texas weather in the spring time because it’s unpredictable and crazy! Just like the old joke says; if you don’t like the weather in Texas, just wait a minute! That’s is so true, when I arrived in Laredo Texas down by the border of Mexico it was 90 degrees, the very next day the high was 58 degrees! So, your asking how do I pack for this type of weather, the answer is… you don’t you buy what you need when you need it.

Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge

Posted on

Image

The Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge is a double-decker bridge across the Yangtze River and its upper deck is part of the China National Highway 104, the lower deck is the railway passage. This bridge is massive and impressive. This day it was overcast and light rain the entire day, but it was still worth the visit. This bridge is also one of the premier destinations for suicide which is not part of any tour group I’m sure. Nanjing is a very busy and it’s an important city commerce hub, but the real treat of Nanjing is the people and old world charm of this historical city.

Love Equals Chocolate?

If love equals chocolate then this is the most loving place on earth Hershey’s Chocolate World! Valentines Day was yesterday and I hope everyone had a wonderful and romantic holiday. I thought back to my visit to Hershey Pennsylvania and how the love was most evident when ready the biography of Mr. Hershey, he had no children so he started an orphanage and when he died he gave all his shares of his company to the orphanage to ensure that what he started would continue, to me that is the true meaning of love, giving completely of ones self to others with absolutely nothing expected in return, what a wonderful way to live ones life, talk about walking the walk, truly amazing. May peace and love be with you always.

Water Taxi Anyone?

While in China I was enjoying the beauty of Hangzhou which has been a favorite retreat for people of prominence and imperial rulers for centuries. The splendor of Hangzhou is centered on and around the greatness of the massive West Lake, the largest part of West Lake is known as the Outer Lake and it is bounded by the North Inner Lake, Yuehu Lake, West Inner Lake and Lesser South Lake. Now you can see why I spent so much time on this lake and I have posted several images taken here and the cool ting is no two photos look like the same location either. The water taxi or tour boat was a relaxing way to take in the entire lake this boat trip took about 45 mins and we saw why this lake is so popular that boast 20 million visitors a year, not bad, that’s like a good amusement park in America’s visitor count. West Lake is a great place to spend a day you can enjoy a peaceful bike ride around the lake or take a boat either way you can’t go wrong on this must see while in Hangzhou.

Fisherman’s Wharf Taiwan

Posted on Updated on

If you want a nice afternoon of relaxation and sightseeing just hop a jet to Taiwan and take the bullet train to Kaohsiung and go directly you the fisherman’s wharf. If you hike up to the top of the hill and you will find a beautiful little outdoor cafe where you can grab a drink and a snack, but the real treat is the view of the wharf. If hiking up 1,000’s of steps to catch the view is not your thing you can just walk around the fishing boats and you can find a small cafe where you can sit outside and enjoy the fresh sea breeze and close your eyes and just imagine your back 200 years before cars and motor scooters became the noise that drown out nature and the relaxing sounds of the ocean.
