I grew up in Mobile, Alabama. These are photographs I took around the area. The water views were taken on the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay, where I enjoyed all of my summers during my high school and college years.
So it’s March 2 and we’re currently experiencing thunder-sleet. Here’s remembering past, and thinking ahead to future, warmer days!
A wedding in Madison, Wisconsin
My older daughter was married this in July 2013 in Madison, Wisconsin. The bridal shower was held at the Olbrich Botanical Gardens, where I took the following cell phone pictures.
The wedding itself took place in the Assembly Chambers of the Wisconsin State Capital Building. As the father of the bride, I had limited time to wander around taking pictures. These are the cellphone pictures I was able to grab:
And of course, I have to include a picture of the newly married couple, taken at the wedding reception:
United States Naval Academy
My son was a midshipman at the United States Naval Academy who graduated in May, 2014. Early in his time at the Academy, we attended a Parents’ Weekend that took place on September 21-23, 2012 at the Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. These are images taken during that weekend:
Tarrant County Courthouse – Fort Worth, Texas
The old Tarrant County Courthouse
My job as an attorney took me to many of the courthouses throughout Texas. The architecture found in those buildings is impressive. These are pictures I took with my cell phone inside the old Tarrant County Courthouse in Fort Worth, Texas.
Playa del Carmen, Mexico
Vacations in Playa del Carmen
During my time as an attornery I was fortunate to work for a firm that treated its employees well. Each year for five or so years before the Covid pandemic, the firm took its employees to Playa del Carmen, Mexico for a vacation. Each of those trips was a relaxing, fun-filled adventure. Below are images taken of some of those vacations. Many are from The Reef resort, where we stayed on one of those trips.
China, Thailand and Hong Kong
In the late 1980’s I had the fortunate opportunity to travel to the Far East on a business trip. The locations I saw included the Beijing area of China, Thailand and Hong Kong. These are some of the images that I took on that trip:

Philmont Scout Ranch is a large, rugged, mountainous ranch located near the town of Cimarron, New Mexico, covering approximately 137,500 acres of wilderness in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of the Rocky Mountains of northern New Mexico. I went there with my son on a two-week trek in 2011. These are some images from that trek:
