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!

There's a bright golden haze on the meadow...

There's a bright golden haze on the meadow,
The corn is as high as an elephant's eye,
An' it looks like it's climbin' clear up to the sky.

Oh, what a beautiful mornin',
Oh, what a beautiful day.
I got a beautiful feelin'
Ev'rything's goin' my way.

That's the opening stanza to the song Oklahoma! Now, I didn't see any elephants, nor corn. Come to think of it, I didn't see a bright golden haze on the meadow. But I did see a beautiful day, starting with a beautiful sunrise!

"Sunrise at the Depot"

Yesterday was all about me and nothing else. My wife had to house sit again for her parents. When this happens, we usually take turns spending time with RJ. Well, the last several times this has happened, I have ended up spending the whole weekend with RJ. Now, before you hit me with an attitude, spending time with my son is not a bad thing. He is a great kid and we have some fun and fantastic times together. But, and let me say, it's a big "BUT", he can really turn on the pre-teen angst and behavior at a moments notice!

So, RJ spent the weekend with Beth at her parents house, and I got to go take pictures, and boy did I take 'em!

"Nashville Skyline"

I started out with the idea of going to Radnor Lake, but got sidetracked when I saw the skyline of Nashville all lit up with the morning sun! I just could not resist getting out and walking. According to my trusty pedometer, I put in 3 miles downtown before I stopped. All I can say was it was "magical"!

"Antique Mall"

So, at this point I started home, but got sidetracked once again! This time, it was Shelby Bottoms that grabbed my attention. Oh, and I am glad I went. A good friend of mine, Warbler Ed , is one of the best bird photographers I know, and when I grow up, I want to be just like him! I have a long way to go, just click on his name and check out his pictures to see what I mean! He and his wife Rachel are working on their "Life List" of birds. Now, I am not keeping a life list, but I think I got a pretty good start yesterday!

"Red Bellied Woodpecker"

"Female Cardinal"

"Great Blue Heron"

"Tree Swallow"

Anyway, it was a phenomenal day and I really enjoyed it, cause for the first time in a long time, it was about.....

ME, ME, ME, ME, ME, ME, ME, !!!!!
Have a great day!
