Memorial Weekend

This blog is dedicated to those who gave all in the name of freedom! Including my uncle Dan Gallagher U.S. Marine, Vietnam. I miss you uncle danny…

I Stand Before You
I stand before you all today
But not one eye can see my way
My time arrived, to leave this earth
A fact so planned, to every birth

It happened where I had to go
My torch for life was so aglow

I transferred while in uniform
Protecting freedom, through a storm

Should I resent I died for you
Not on my life, red white and blue

Please help my family through each day
Tell all my friends, try not to stray

And of the country I did love
Do think of me, through God above

Your memories, brought forth this day
Send love to us, who could not stay

If anyone is traveling this weekend, I wish you all a safe trip and hope you have taken cameras along to get some great shots. If they are not great, well then, you have stuff to practice on. I know, I have a one track mind. I came across a great article on shooting landscape in general. I wrote the tips down so I can take them with me whenever I step out the door with camera in hand. Which is pretty much all the time these days. So why don’t you swing by Erik site and check out “Landscapes in general – Tips on shooting!” for yourself.

Scott Kelby has named the top 10 winners from his world wide photo walk promoting his new book. The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 Book for Digital Photographers. If by some odd chance you have missed this announcement that has been splashing on blogs all over the world you can read it for yourself at Scott’s own blog.

Well that is it for now. Hope everyone has a great weekend.
