Chesapeake Bay Sunrise

Sunrise on the Chesapeake Bay is beautiful. I woke up early Sunday and decided to head down to a waterfront park I know about to get a picture of the sun coming up. It was worth the trip. I love the quiet peacefulness of the early morning.

Take better vacations. Buy a beautiful waterfront home. Email me to find out how you can have things you only dreamed of.

Brian with a bike that has a story to tell

I met Brian while riding near Frederick, MD. Brian told me the story behind this bike. It belonged to his brother Kevin, who is now deceased. When Kevin found out he had liver cancer, he bought this bike and rode it from NYC to Colorado, knowing he had only 3 months to live. Kevin had been an addict in his earlier life, but turned his life around and became a drug counselor in New York. Kevin helped many people get off drugs, and many came to his funeral to express their appreciation to Kevin's family for helping to save their life. Kevin had a huge impact on so many people, and Brian now rides this bike in memory and in tribute to his brother.

About Me

The word "biker" has different meanings to different people. To most it means someone who rides a motorcycle. That is me. However to those who are uninitiated and think bikers are outlaws, that is not me. I have 3 college degrees, am a family man, have held a steady professional career for 24 years, and have never been arrested. Many bikers on the road might look like outlaws, but most are not.

The "photo" part of my nickname should tell you I like to take photos. I am an amateur photographer. Maybe someday I will be a pro, or a semi-pro. However, I have heard it said that trying to make money in photography can ruin a perfectly good hobby. To put it simple, I like to ride my motorcycles (I currently own two - but can only ride one at a time) to scenic places and take high quality scenic photographs along the way.

Now when I am shooting photos, I am not always traveling on my motorcycle. Sometimes I travel by car, airplane or train. In any event, this blog will contain commentary on the places I go, the things I experience, the people I meet, some pictures, some stories. I hope you find it interesting.
