More than 400 cars destroyed at Portugal Music festival

A fire at a music festival in Portugal this week spread across a parking lot and burnt up a staggering 422 cars. Amazingly, no one was injured.

Homemade backyard swimming holes

Lots of effort. I commend them as I would have used an above ground pool with decking and camoflauge. Also, when they go to sell it, what happens?

Backyard Ponds!

 

 

Did you make, do you have a homemade camper?

I love homemade campers, especially those on Unomogs.

Invictus

Over the past year I have photographed fifteen severely wounded veterans from the Gulf Wars, all of them amputees who lost a limb or multiple limbs from IED attacks while deployed. Of these fifteen veterans, ten served in either the United States Army or Marines.  Five served in either the British Army or The Royal Marines. The format and size of Invictus will be the same as last year’s Always Loyal: hardcover photo book with dust jacket, 96 pages or more and measures 13.5 X 10.4 inches.  Like last year I will include individual bios for each veteran.  All the images are already photographed and only need to be organized and published.  When the book releases, I anticipate a full retail price of $79.

Adonis Blue

For this project I have photographed over twenty male fitness models, non-amputee veterans, and a couple amputee veterans – who will appear in this book as well as Invictus.  Adonis Blue is in the tradition of my previous male, figure study books, and it will be the same size as last year’s book, Exhibition: hardcover photo book with dust jacket, 128 pages and measures 13.5 X 10.4 inches.  All the images are already photographed and only need to be organized and published.  When the book releases, I anticipate a full retail price of $89-$99.

 

I will be purchasing books from Michael and he will donate them to veteran rehab groups.  We did this last year and it was appreciated.

On his Facebook site, a mom posted a picture of her child, a boy who is a double amputee.   She said she shows  him pictures of the amputee vets and it makes him feel better about his situation.

Michael is also thinking about a photography project for terminally ill/hospice children.  He will take a picture of them dressed as their favorite super hero.
