Thanks for taking a picture of me Jana! You are amazing!



Well, it's me of course! Hi, I'm Scott, just an ordinary guy who loves life and all the little nuances that it brings! Simply put, I'm a father to a wonderful son, a husband to a beautiful wife, and an amateur photographer who enjoys looking at the world through a piece of glass! I took up photography a couple of years ago, after having gastric bypass surgery. Since 12/07, I have lost 180 pounds, but found a real passion for documenting life with my camera. I could say that the big names out there have inspired me, and they have, But my true inspiration comes from the people I meet everyday who share the same thoughts and zeal I have for photography. We are truly blessed with some really great photographers around Nashville. So, what are you waiting for.... ...grab a camera, snap some pics, and enjoy life to the fullest!

Shelby Bottoms in the Fall

It’s been a while since I just went walking just to take pictures. What with football and such. Well, today I decided it was time to push my tush a little! Especially since my tush will be laid up pretty soon!

I went to a park that is real close to my home, Shel
by Park. The purpose of my excursion was to get some pics of the beautiful fall colors before they disappeared for the year. Unfortunately, the fog was pretty thick and made the colors invisible to the naked eye. But that was ok, cause I was able to use it to my advantage. What ended up as a dreary and overcast morn, gave way to some pretty cool pictures.

At one point I got the nature scared out of me! A blue heron was sitting in a tree, not 5 feet above me. He decided it was the right time to fly away and scare a human being. Hey, I did nothing except try and take his picture! Evidently he was a little camera shy!

Let’s see, what else did I find? Oh yeah, I think I found where the Keebler Elves actually live. For those that did not know, my brother is a Keebler Elf. OK, he’s not really an elf, he just works for Keebler.

The good and bad part of the walk was just that…the walk! After walking the greenways for about 1.5 miles in, I realized I would need to walk 1.5 miles back. To make a long story a little shorter, I got lost, ended up at a friends house, turned around, and found my way home. All told, I walked 3.5 miles! That’s not too bad! Maybe after I have surgery, I could start to run a little! Who knows? The Music City Marathon could be in my future…not!!!!

If interested, you can see the rest of the pics I took this morning by clicking on the link below:

Have a great week, and don't forget to push your tush!
