Piney squirrels at bird feeder. It looks like they are about to talk to one another.

Canyon De Chelly, Arizona

Note the farm near the bottom of the image. This gives some perspective to the size of the canyon.

Squirrel in America

The picture of the squirrel was taken a couple of years ago on the campus of Notre Dame, here in Indiana. I guess college kids eat a lot of pizza and the squirrels on campus know where to go and find the uneaten scraps.

This picture, is pretty well accepted on sites where one can track the number of views per image, so I thought I would try to add something to it to make it a bit more interesting. I would like to hear your suggestions on what caption should go with this picture... or did I find the best one ever!?!?!?!?!

This image incoporates a texture from French Kiss textures. I love her work. You can tell if you look at my images for the last several weeks that I am using more and more textures (backgrounds).

 An older image I found in my files. I've taken it here and added a "texture" from French Kiss Textures. My wife helped me pick out which one to use. These are lots of fun to work with as you get to "kinda" paint the picture out to let the background or texture come through.

The water on the rose and the leaves addes a nice touch.

I also used some grunge brushes to add some feel or texture. I thought maybe I want overboard with all of the various elements... but maybe it turned out alright?

Fight No More, Forever

 This is obviously two images. One is from Gettysburg (guess). And the other is from a cemetry in Memphis.

Note the angel has his/her/its tourch lowered to the ground. Kind of interesting.

The challenge to this photo was taking out a tree to the left which was very prominent, Then adding the angel. It was a bit too clear and didn't look very ghostly so I adjusted so it was somewhat transparent.

Cleft for Me

Nothing done here. Just a straight picture of an old hymnal with stained and old pages.

I remember singing this hymn as a child growing up in the church. We rocked out baby!!!
