March milestone month

Redcliffe Kite Festival

 Last August of 2015 the annual kite fest at Redcliffe in Australia was held. This two day festival showcases amazing kites of different designs and shapes from all around the world. Besides the kite fest itself, there are other activities like the water skiing show, musical bands performing, arts and crafts displays, children's and adults workshops, and many more. These activities are definitely worth visiting for and my family enjoyed it even though visiting the venue for one day.... continue reading

The Pope in Washington DC

No doubt Pope Francis is the center of attention right now.I was fortunate enough to see the pope in Washington DC on 9/23/15 at D Street as well as Constitution Avenue as he made his way around the Ellipse.This is probably the biggest event to happen in Washington DC in a long time and not likely to happen again for many years.Big crowds assembled at the only non ticketed event to see the Pope.After a wait of about an hour or better the Pope finally arrived on D Street next to DAR Constitution... continue reading

Friends Again-Cuban Embassy Opens in Washington DC

Lumberjack - great day shooting forest work

Leaving early morning with a group of woodcutters to see the forest workers day through the lens. Weather seems to be promising, so I'm looking forward interesting time outdoors :)I had packed tripod, fast lens, thermos with hot tea and warm clothes. Shooting in the forest could be tricky. If you want morning misty pictures of few light beams, you just need to find good place, put camera on tripod and use longer time ... and you almost done. But lumberjack is fast moving creature, so you have... continue reading

I have tried bribery, but they seem to want to sabatoge my photos. Also they get dirty pretty fast, too.Any advice?Thanks, Dee Dee Dixon continue reading
