The top row of pictures are HDR photos I took for Big Guns Cycles in Cicero, IN.
Right now I hope to sell some photos, do some shoots, help to set up Web sites, and offer a few miscellaneous services. If you are interested in any of this, please contact me at or at 317-984-3049.
Selling photos is my main goal. All of the photos on this site are available plus many more on my Picasa site. The mounted photos are on  foam board. If you prefer a frame, arrangements can be made through Lilly LaGarde in Tipton.

Spring Mill State Park
These pictures were taken in the Pioneer Village at Spring Mill State Park early in the spring. HDR photography requires a tripod so I was in a hurry to keep from being in the way of other visitors. Some of the pictures look like the furniture is about to slide out of the room. This is not an architectural problem! I've since purchase a level for my camera.

This year's MotoGP at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway showed lots of color. I couldn't get close enough to the track to get good shots of the riders and cycles. The not so close pictures are posted on my site at

The food is the main reason to go to La Hacienda. When I found out they were expanding into the empty area next door, I asked if they were going to change their food. They didn't!
They did change their decor though to match their tasty food.
The hostess told me the name of the city in Mexico where they purchased their furnishings. When she saw how weak I am in Mexican geography, she said, "Near Guadalajara.".
