Under the Sun Have you ever considered that all your wonderful camera equipment is not much more than this: weeds? Both will eventually break down.

That’s right; completely sold out! Thanks to you and the many who purchased Lenspiration’s Observe 2011 calendar, I have no more left to sell. The endeavor was a success! “. . . if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom... Read More »
