Have been talking with western artist Patricia Dobson about using one of my images for one of her next paintings. Sent her a few for her review, but she ended up liking my images of 5 year old Sterlin Mitchell from Santa Fe, NM. Here he is sitting in his dad's saddle one of the days we were photographing some of the horses on the San Cristobal Ranch last July.

Something different.........a painting from my wife Christie. This is an oil painting on canvas, I think roughly 12" by 24" in size. This pictures does not do it justice. Just a beautiful piece of art. It is a painting of the aqueduct that runs through the San Jouquin Valley of central California. Check out her Art & Life blog site at:

Was looking through some of my 2010 images this last weekend, and found this picture of an old truck in someones side yard in New Mexico (shocking....so rare to find that in New Mexico!!). What it did, was remind me of all the little things that make me love that state so much.

Went to a car show near Pepper Tree Drive-in in Vista, CA this morning. Last year they reported that over 550 cars were there. I would guess at least that many today. All makes and models......... from 1927 T Roadsters to 1970's Muscle Cars. Lots of 1955-57 Bel-Air's and Nomads. Even saw a chopped Fiat Roadster with flames. Who would have thunk it!!!! Tons of chrome & pinstripes. Many amazing looking vehicles.
