She is my Wonder Woman

by on Sep.22, 2017, under Family


Today was a tough day. My 17yr old daughter had her 4 wisdom teeth extracted today. She was a trooper. 

Of all the strongest woman I know, she ranks up there in the top 4. Elizabeth being #1. 

I worked from home today so I could help with my little girl’s extraction process. She’s already gone through braces and now had to have 4 wisdom teeth extracted. Her procedure was at 8am and as I mentioned, I was thankful I’m able to work from home to help my wife get her home. 

We thought it was going to take about 2 hours but we were surprised when they called us after an hour. She was ready to go home. She was a bit groggy and you had to ask…

Will this be an opportunity to film her in a goofy moment you see online of parent’s posting their children’s reaction to the procedure. 

She surprised me. 

She was a bit emotional but got to the car and in the house ok. Three hours later, she was sitting on the sofa with Momma bear at her side. A couple of times she used the “bell app” on her phone to get our attention when she went back to her room to sleep but let me tell you – she’s been awesome. She’s a tough girl…just like her Mom. She was already posting pics of herself to her friends on Snapchat and other media to show her friends (and GodMom) that she was doing well. Even during the ABC Nightly News she was so lively commenting on current events. 

Being a film maker, I wondered if I would have used this opportunity to film her in her most vulnerable state, blabbing like an idiot, 

But of course, she continued to surprise me with her strength and resilience. Just like her Mom. 

I’ve posted some pictures below to share how proud I am of this strong, young woman. I’m sure she did better than I did – yes those are my two wisdom teeth pulled as my header image…oh so long ago (25yrs?). 

We will be watching Wonder Woman tonight – to remind me that I am lucky to have these two women in my life. Both are WW to me.

The Band – Pyro

by on Jul.01, 2017, under Creativity, Photography, Sony A6000


My buddy John’s son is in a Band called Pyro – he’s the drummer. I’d been hearing John regale me with how good they are so I went to hear them at the Helotes Fair on Sat 7/1/17.

Only stayed for one set since when Elizabeth found out I was going without her – I told her I was just taking pics. 

I took my Sony and got some pics during their first set. Pretty impressive. Gonna have to follow them around. 

Below you will find a gallery of pics I took – click on them for a larger view.

Saldivar South Padre Vacation 2017

by on Jun.18, 2017, under Family, Film making, Photography, Sony A6000

Been one week since we’ve been back from our annual Saldivar Vacation. This year (2017) we decided to go back to South Padre Island and “complete” the vacation. See 8 years ago we went but Joaquin got really sick and we basically drove back. This trip felt like we closed the loop. 

Read about that here – Joaquin got sick

The video above is from Day 1 and I didn’t bust out my cameras the rest of the trip. Elizabeth told me not to make it “work.” So I didn’t. I did add a gallery below so if you click on images for a larger view. I did create some time lapses using my Sony A6500 and I’ll add those later. 


Thanks for letting me share,

My buddy’s 68 Mustang

by on May.06, 2017, under Creativity, Photography


This morning Elizabeth and I attending a classic car show. My buddy, Lonnie was presenting his restored 1968 Mustang. Great car so I wanted to take some photos. There were a lot of classic cars there and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky (which presented it’s own problems) but I got some great photos with my Sony A6500. 

I’ve posted a gallery below – click on each picture for a larger view.
