The family was in California going through my mother-in-laws belongs and deciding what to do with everything. We heard a racket in the green space behind the back fence. Up in a tree we spotted this turkey. This is may favorite image for March 31.
Bruce Munro did a big and impressive light exhibit at the Franklin Park Conservatory. I had such good time that I went back more than one evening to photograph the various displays. This is just one of the light displays. This is my favorite image for March 30.
The San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge is one of my favorite places on the planet. Usually I am there to photograph wading birds. But this particular year I was there when the poppies were in bloom. My brother-in-law (who is also an avid photographer) and I had a great time. This is my favorite image for March 29.
So many emotions. Even two years later.
“Harry Potter is in the house!” Our grandson Finn came over to play and he brought his Harry Potter glasses. This is my favorite photo for March 27.
Our grandson Terran came over after school. We did all kinds of things, including playing checkers. This is my favorite image for March 26.
Sorting through a loved one’s belongings after they are gone is not an easy task, for all kinds of reasons. Despite all of the sadness, there are some good moments, like finding something that brings back special memories. This is my favorite photo for March 25.
Our children were all home in the spring so I did a portrait of the three of them. This is one of my two favorite photos for March 23, and one of my all time favorite photos.
We were going into Costco and I was intrigued by the repeating pattern of the shopping carts a lined up in rows. This is my favorite photo for March 22.
I was out for a walk and spotted this flower. I grabbed a photo with my iPhone and modified it in my phone with the app Painteresque. This is my favorite photo for March 21.
This is the only photo for March 20 in my favorite photos folder, so it is my favorite photo for this date. It is not a great photo from a technical or artistic point of view, but it is a special photo from an emotional point of view. Sunny jumped up in my lap to nap for the evening while I watched TV.
This is a happy sign! Real spring might be arriving soon! This is my first robin of spring, not to see, but to photograph.
It was a cold and snowy St. Patrick’s day in Columbus Ohio, and Sunny and I were out for a walk. The snow depth was perfect for leaving paw prints. This is my favorite photo for March 17.
I’ve always been a mountains kind of person, but after several days at North Myrtle Beach South Carolina I learned how much I loved the beach. Or maybe it was being with family. Or both.
We arrived home from a trip to Iowa and I went to the Doggy Resort (we don’t use the “k”word) to pick up Sunny. This is my favorite photo for March 15.

A quick look at my “favorite photos” folder tells me March 11 has been a good day for photography.
I had recently acquired an iOptron SkyTracker but cloudy night skies in Columbus Ohio had prevented me from trying it out. My first clear night came during a visit to Lamoni Iowa, a location that is also blessed with dark skies far from big city lights.
It was the license plate that caught my eye. “I be late” struck me as humorous. I wondered what kind of person gets a license plate like that? Are they habitually late, or is it just a joke?
As a very small boy living in Walsenburg Colorado, I could look out our window and see these mountains. They have been special to me ever since.
There was an art exhibit of Chihuly Glass at the Franklin Park Conservatory in Columbus Ohio. I went and took a lot of photos. Eventually the exhibit left town, but a few permanent pieces remained. This is one of them.
It was Communion Sunday and I happened to be seated close to the communion emblems. I put my iPhone very close to the bread tray and created this image. This is my favorite photo for March 6.
I usually don’t post photos of myself, so this is an exception. I was invited to do an exhibit of my work at Changes Salon and Day Spa in Columbus Ohio. It was supposed to be up for two or three months (their usual length for exhibits), but it was so popular they asked me to leave it up for 6 months.
The arrival of a new born baby is a special event, and for reasons you probably would not expect, this was a very significant day.
One of my favorite places in the Fort Worth area is the Buddhist Temple in Keller Texas. Officially know as Wat Buddharatanaram, it is sometimes called Wat Keller for short.
Why is this a favorite photo? Keep reading!
